The Black Parade : The expressions and intensions of emo subculture, interpreted in terms of rebellion (English)
Abstract [sv]

Emotional hardcore är subkulturen som gick från undergroundrörelse med nära kopplingar till punken till att bli en extremt kommersialiserad subkultur. Emos efter millennieskiftet har beskrivits som deprimerade och destruktiva, och deras kultur som potentiellt farlig för unga människor. I den här uppsatsen kommer emo-kulturens uttryck och intention att undersökas, framförallt kommer fokus att ligga på hur samtalet om motstånd, psykisk ohälsa och känslor såg ut. Genom kvalitativa intervjuer med fem personer som rört sig i emo-kulturen, analyser av text från Bilddagboken och privata bloggar framträder en mer komplex bild av emos. Kulturen rymmer både normskritiska och livsbejakande inslag, även om scenen inte värjer sig för tunga ämnen som självdestruktivitet och depression. Emos synliggjorde sina känslor och personliga uttryck men krävde också respekt och acceptans från sin omgivning. Deras närvaro öppnar upp för en debatt om utseendenormer och psykisk ohälsa som fortfarande är aktuell.   

Abstract [en]

Emotional hardcore is the subculture which went from underground movement with close ties to punk rock to become an extremely commercialized subculture. The emos of the post-millennial emo culture have been described as depressed and destructive, and their culture as potentially dangerous to young people. This essay is exploring the expressions and intentions of the emo culture, with a focus on the discourse on rebellion, mental health and feelings. Qualitative interviews with five former members of the Swedish emo-community, textual analyses from the social media Bilddagboken (Dayviews) and private blogs form a more complex picture of emos. The emo culture contains both norm critical and life affirmative elements, even if the scene doesn’t shield itself from difficult subjects like self-harm and depression. Emo kids made both their feelings and personal expressions visible and demanded respect and acceptance from their surroundings. Their presence open up for a debate about standards of appearance and metal health that is still relevant.
