31 Songs Every Emo Teen From The ‘00s Still Knows All The Words To

I’m not ashamed to admit I’m an emo kid at heart. I remember getting Panic At The Disco tickets for 5 bucks off of E-Bay for my best friend and I and we had the time of our lives. Although the fashion was amusing at the time – so much black eyeliner, so many band t-shirts from Hot Topic, so many polka dots – it was tons of fun. Put on your black hoodie (I know u still have one), push your bangs so they hang in your face like the old days, and spend the afternoon tapping into your ~emotional~ side. Oh, and here’s a Spotify playlist of all these songs and more for the times when you want to reminisce.
