    Hi again -

     

    Here's a better answer - from an emo site .

     

    What is emo

    The term "Emo" is used as counterculture; it is an abreviation of the word "emotional". Emo it's defining not only an attitude, but also a fashion that are coming from emocore (emo music). Emocore is a combination between hardcore and punk music which was very popular in Washington DC in the late 80's. The emo culture continued to develop between '90 and '00, reaching the height of its popularity today.

    › Emo Kids

    The term for the teenagers who listen emocore is emo kids . The society thinks about them as failures; they are not strong enough to hide their emotions , they're sensitive, shy, introverted, and often quiet. Usually, Emo kids like to express their feeling writing poems about their problems with depression, confusion, and anger; all because the world fails to understand them.

    Hi, Renee -

     

    Did your friend bring that up referring to depression or other mood? Unless it was meant as shorthand for emotion, emo is a kind of alternative rock music. Does that make any sense of what your friend was describing? Emo has its own history which I don't pretend to know much about.
