This Is What Emo Kids Of ’00 Look Like Now (15 Pics)

“I’m a tax consultant at a big-four accounting firm.” 
“I still listen to screamo on a regular basis”.

“Back then I always wanted to work in the music industry…and now I do!”

“I’m definitely nowhere near as emo as I used to be! And I also embraced my natural hair and stopped trying to straighten and dye it to death. I’m the marketing manager for a ticketing company in Seattle and it’s my job to go to events, meet with event producers, and help them promote while doing their ticketing.”

“I joined a sorority and got a degree in special education.”

“I recently taught a student who is going through her emo ‘phase’. That ‘phase’ helped me connect with that kid in the classroom and she knew that I was a safe teacher to come to. I still listen to my emo music as a guilty pleasure, but I am glad that I’m over the look.”

“I’m now (almost) 28, married, and raising two fabulous little girls.”

“My oldest is four, and we occasionally will turn up the music and she’ll dance like my former scene-kid self. Not going to lie, I’d still be at Warped Tour if there was on-site childcare. I don’t think my emo side will ever fully fade.”

“I’m an award-winning baker, I breed and raise aquatic snails, and work in a spa.”

“I’m also working my way towards a career in massage therapy, and on top of that, I’m planning a wedding to my love of five years!”

“I’m married and a hairstylist”.

“I used to listen to bratcore and AFI in Union Square while hanging out with other emo kids. I’m not embarrassed about the occasional pictures popping up as a reminder, only the fact that I was wearing fingerless gloves in middle of August.”

“Now I’m 20, and in my second year of vet school.

“I used to cut my own hair into that cool side fringe and was a big fan of the overexposed black and white selfie. Now I even let other people cut my hair for me.”

“I’m about to graduate from the University of Michigan with a degree in movement science, with a concentration in biomechanics.”

“While there I joined an amazing Panhellenic sorority, something I never thought I would do in my freshmen year of high school. I also am currently training for my first marathon! But don’t worry, my iPod is still filled with La Dispute, Silverstein, A Skylight Drive, and of course, Escape the Fate.”

“I’m a mom of three wonderful children while currently pursuing my degree in computer science and working full time at a tech start-up.”

“There’s still a little scene kid in me, hence the purple hair, piercings, and tattoos. Really I’m a bit of a nerd and a big kid doing big things with wonderful children.”

“I’m now married and a stay-at-home mom to a 17-month-old.”

“I’m definitely different, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have dance parties with my son to My Chemical Romance and The Used.”

“I live in Chicago with my cats and work as a graphic designer.”

“I still love dying my hair, wearing my Vans or Chuck Taylors, and blasting Alkaline Trio in my headphones, though! So, I would say I didn’t leave my emo days too far behind.”

“All that hair and makeup practice back then really helped me become the hairstylist and makeup artist that I am today!”

“Now I’ve pretty much left all my emo qualities behind… Well, maybe not all of them.”

“Even though I got a grown-up job at a bank I never compromised my emo style!”

“Eight years later and I’m still wearing the exact same Jack Daniel’s shirt!! Not much has changed at all; I still go to metal shows all the time and still constantly dye my hair different colours using Manic Panic.”

“I’m bartending now instead of working at Hot Topic, and just enjoying my life in the big ol’ city of Chicago.”

“I went by “Adam Bullet” for most of my days and still use that user name now. And yes, that is my senior picture. I’m now 28 years old. I stopped straightening my hair, finally let my curls go, and took out my snakebites.”

“Here I am doing a seminar on goals and failure.”

“On the left is me circa 2007; listening to AFI, Saosin, From First to Last, etc., and firmly showing my straight-edge X on my popular fingerless gloves. Fast-forward to me in December 2015, on stage doing a seminar about goals and failure, telling a story about how I played bass in a metal band and that my power stance obtained the power of metal. I’m still straight-edge though.”
