In retrospect, the '00s were an ... interesting time, but for those of us who considered ourselves "emo," it was a renaissance unlike any time we'll ever live in again. It still feels like yesterday when we were blasting My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! At The Disco just to piss our parents off. Oh, memories. 

If you've since grown out of your emo phase, were you really even emo to begin with, though? We thought not. That being said, we've collected a whole bunch of pins and patches you can use to flaunt your emo-kid status — in a way more subtle way than your old hairstyle.
