Simon and Kelley describe emo culture slyly in this perky lifestyle guide. I can tell you its not the autobiography of REM front man, that book is EVERYBODY HURTS: SOMETIMES, not Everybody Hurts: An Essential Guide to Emo Culture, I can see how you would be confused. Basically, emo is music made by "a bunch of guys barely out of high school" who are concerned "with decidedly high school problems" (heartbreak, friendship, et. more than with "approachable hooks. Growing out of and away from increasingly insular punk rock, emo sets lyrics that are very often introspective and achey.

Written by Leslie Simon and Trevor Kelley of Alternative Press, few are perhaps better suited to documenting this phenomenon than two writers of the magazine most responsible for reporting on the scene each month

Written by Leslie Simon and Trevor Kelley of Alternative Press, few are perhaps better suited to documenting this phenomenon than two writers of the magazine most responsible for reporting on the scene each month. Now, it's important to note that the book largely concerns itself with the newer, more palatable version of "emo. The Promise Ring and Rites of Spring may earn a mention in the book, but this is largely the world of Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, 30 Seconds to Mars and others of their ilk.

What is emo? For starters it's a form of melodic, confessional, or EMOtional punk rock. But emo is more than a genre of music–it's the defining counterculture movement of the '00s. EVERYBODY HURTS is a reference book for emo, tracing its angsty roots all the way from Shakespeare to Holden Caufield to today's most popular bands.

There's nothing new about that perfect chocolate and peanut butter combination––teenagers and angst. What is new is that emo is the first cultural movement born on the internet. With the development of early social networking sites like Make Out Club (whose mission is to unite "like–minded nerds, loners, indie rockers, record collectors, video gamers, hardcore kids, and artists through friendship, music, and sometimes even love") outcast teens had a place to find each other and share their pain, their opinions, and above all, their music–which wasn't available for sale at the local record store.

  • Thank it felt like a powerpoint presentation of things that perhaps should be funny, but just checking for your reaction. Would not recommend, as funny as emo is.

  • ok, short review. i've been amazed by how the almost-impossible-to-define music genre of emo has proliferated and splintered into dozens of even-more-impossible-to-define subsets and nuances over the past few years. and how emo has become more mainstream, and -- surely -- the haven of the hip white kids. let the truly mainstream have their r&b and hip-hop and top-40. emo, like it's "alternative rock" predecessor, is in the midst of an identity crisis as it's growing popularity is antithetical to its "we're the forgotten" anti-conformity soul.

    i admit, i'm a 45 year old dude. i am not allowed to be emo (though it is hilarious that my 14 year-old daughter has recently moved beyond her hip-hop and r&b only musical tastes and raided most of the emo from my itunes, causing a shudder in the generation gap of our household).

    i bought this book because i wanted to understand more, and because i thought it looked like fun. and in some ways it provided both. in other ways, it was just too self-effacing and "i'm more hip than you because i make fun of the very affinity group i am part of". a few insights; too many lists of "the right record stores", "the right clothing stores" and such. worth a skim if you're interested in the subject; but not a high recommendation.

  • I bought this book for my kids and ended up reading it after they set it down. LMAO! As a parent, I didn't get it before. Now I wish I didn't, but I still laughed. A fun book!

  • 'excellent book' - I wish everybody could read this book....... and I mean everybody !
    It is a descriptive book, cuts deep, and opened my mind where it was closed before.

  • Pretty sure I didn't buy this book, but amazon is never wrong, maybe I bought it as a gift. I can tell you its not the autobiography of REM front man, that book is EVERYBODY HURTS: SOMETIMES, not Everybody Hurts: An Essential Guide to Emo Culture, I can see how you would be confused.

  • This book absolutely rocks. It was witty, insightful and informative. I can't wait to see what these two brilliant writers come up with next.

  • This would have to be my favourite book of the year!
    Never have I come across a book that describes a pop-culture scene so brutally honest, and with such sarcastic-humour, as this one does.
    Now I would have to call myself "old" when relating to this scene. (I'm 26) - but that doesn't make me any less of a scenester to comment on it.
    (I mean according to the "Adult Emo" quiz at the back, I still have some Fall Out Boy shows up my sleeve before I "retire"). If you're fascinated by all things "Emo" - I would have to say this would have to be the book for you. I think it also would be a great book to explain to your parents about - just so they won't freak out about your overusage of MySpace & tortured-teen-angst poetry lying around the lounge room.

    If you are a parent, and trying to decide which scene your suddenly-rebellious teenager fits into - Emo or Goth. Read Volitaire's "What is Goth?" - another funny and spot on satire of the scene.

    ....anyway, enough of my ramblings...
    To sum up: Buy it. It's good. The End.

  • Absolute garbage. I bought this a number of years ago, when I was in high school, and somehow the book moved with me two states since then. I reopened the book, and closed it after reading half a page. I was considering sending it to goodwill, but its such trash I don't want another person to waste their time on it. So recycling bin it is. Hopefully it can be recycled into an actual book someday. Don't bother buying this or wasting your time reading it. Its not worth it.
