There is an eyeliner war brewing. As if emo wars weren't enough, now scene kids (a completely different culture than emo, apparently) are ready to battle emo kids for territory. Read the full article here.
It disgusts me that everything that made the "scene" so special has been ruined by the superficial and vapid people taking the music and turning it into a style and it's lost everything that was once so unique about it. It's not a community anymore...it's people sitting in front of their mirror taking pictures of themselves and listing random bands on their online profiles for some sort of scene credibility, all while saying that they don't give a fuck what anyone else thinks (Mayer nailed it on the head earlier in the week). These people are the reason why this music genre suffers. Look how many bands have adopted this style in order to appeal to their fanbase. It's not about the music anymore.
