    My guess is that emo could be short for "emotional" in your sentence:

    "having and expressing strong feelings"

    or it could also mean the following (from the Urban dictionary):

    Urban Dictionary: emo

    Perhaps it combines the two - "having and expressing strong feelings", but in a way typical of the musical genre.

    Incidentally, '"inaudible guitar rifts" in that Urban Dictionary link has a typo; the disjointedness of a rift is quite appropriate, but I think they mean 'inaudible guitar riffs'.

    To be quite honest,

    I'm not too sure about the accuracy of the definitions provided at the "Urban Dictionary".

    Meaning you'd develop a sudden craving for cole slaw...?




    In this case, I think the Urban Dictionary more or less correct. Emo is both a style of music as well as a genre of fashion. More from Wiki.
