    I saw this thread on dnb arena, and it got me thinking, do you think emo's are taking over dnb or do you think that the extra exposure is doing good for the scene? In my personal opinion it's doing my head in i dont want it to get to a point where there'll be emo's doing their rain dances and slitting their rists in the middle of one of my sets. The thing that pisses me off most is that they only like the stuff that has a rocky feel... pendulum, certain TC tunes, certain clipz tunes..

    To cut a medium size story short
    FUCK OFF EMOS :D

    Now what the fuck is an emo, Is that the opposite to a chav????

    Raindance's and wrist slitting you seem to know alot about this little cult? Is there something your not telling us.

    To cut a short story ... short who cares who listened to drum and bass. It's all LOVE!!!

    i didnt even know there was an emo influx. emos are a pretty silly bunch, dont think anyone would try to deny that.

    Wrist slitting on the dancefloor would end up like that scene in Blade!

    :gslayer:

    I don't care really. The more people into DnB the better, the music will survive and evolve, whatever, whoever...

    I'd much rather emos listen to Pendulum than My Fucking Chemical Romance or that Fall Out Boy wank...

    :)

    This thread started on dnbarena? Well now there's a surprise... :crazy:

    I'd definitely prefer a dancefloor full of emo kids to a dancefloor full of punchy stella-ed up chavs. Then again people may put me in an emo bracket because I wear band t-shirts and most of my clothes are black.

    Back in the day the ignorant would call me grung-aah , then it was gof-ick, possibly I'm now considered emo. I consider myself more of a punk than anything else but who knows? Who cares?

    DnB will appeal to more people because it is directly influenced and inspired by so many genres of music. This is a major part of its appeal as it comes in so many varied and contrasting forms. I think if you listen hard enough, there's something there for most people, they just might not have heard the right tunes yet.

    As far as I'm concerned Drum and bass is the best music in the world and anyone who wants to have a dance to it should be more than welcome. Especially if they don't oppress the dancefloor with their attitude problems.

    way i understand it theyre sort of standardly depressed, all whilst being uniquely special and posing really hard. also, like thrawn said, dressing auspiciously, with the mascara and synthpoppy haircuts and that.
    thats the jist of it the way i understand it but thats not even the reason i call them silly, its just a really teeny way to behave which will always make it really silly. to me anyway, look man im no expert on this, i dont really see them that much.

    who cares...

    I WOULD SAY THATS ABOUT THE BE-ALL-AND-END-ALL OF IT REALLY

    its the MUSIC not the clothes some people may wear

    why do people feel the need to categorise themselves anyway?? usually to make up for a lack of a decent contribution to society...

    Erm, I don't agree. IMHO it gives people a sense of identity in an ever more hostile and turbulent educational and social environment and they will continue to recategorise themselves and others throughout their lives.

    Yeah but as the type of music you listen to somewhat labels you, i dont want it to become like 'You listen to drum n bass therefore you're an emo' Just like 'you listen to heavy metal therefore you are a grunger'
    I don't want drum n bass being associated with fags...

    WTF has that to do with emo? If anything Pendulum appeals to scallies and chavs.

    With some people, all you have to do is say anything and their immediate reaction is "I hate Pendulum"

    A: Hi mate, I just bought Hold Your Colours!

    B: I hate Pendulum!


    A: Hi mate, going down to Fabric?

    B: No, I hate Pendulum!


    A: Hi mate, I just cut my leg off!

    B: That's bad. Did I mention that I hate Pendulum!

    And you know what dnb is associated with? People who can't have fun.
