About This Quiz

"I tear my heart open. I sew myself shut." While these lyrics seem like too much emotion for some, the emo kids of the early 2000s were loving it! Emo bands like Green Day, Blink-182 and Jimmy Eat World appeared in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but the new millennium brought in new bands such as My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco and The Used. The songs had truly expressive lyrics, but only a true emo kid can complete these lyrics.

While many people might not be aware of where "emo" came from, it stands for "emotional" or "emotive" rock. And before we get to the music that the kids played on repeat, the music and musicians also sparked a fashion statement. The emo fashion would often include choppy layered haircuts, dark eyeliner and a variety of clothing options from Hot Topic. The perfect outfit couldn't be complete without a pair of black Chuck Taylors to write your favorite lyrics on.

Emo kids were writing the lyrics of early 1986 band, Green Day. You might've been obsessed with Gerard Way and My Chemical Romance. Did you scream out the lyrics to "Scars" by Papa Roach? True emo kids know the lyrics to all the greats because the pain of their favorite artist became their own! From "Bring Me to Life" to "I Will Follow You Into the Dark," can you prove you're a true emo kid by remembering these lyrics? Let's find out!
