  • Nicole from Bronx, United Kingdomlol i love this song! even if im emo and it makes fun of ppl like me its just SOOOO halarious!
  • Indigo from Adelaide, AustraliaThis is so funny. i don't think it's mean, i think it's just making a joke of how emo is such a popular stereotype now, and how you do anything like wear black or paint your nails you are labled "emo". it's overly dramtic which makes it hilarious.
  • Makaladawn from Gold River, NsHa i love this song i laughed my ass off it was hiloarous!!!!!
  • Sarah from Fairway, KsLol im not emo and i love this song! I hate that stereotype because i might be kinda emo-i think poseur more like. My friends often make statements suggesting that if ur emo u cut urself and want to kill urself. It bugs me. I guess it is kinda mean but funny. You guys should watch the Sweeney Todd version. Search under 'Funny Sweeney'.
