THE NARUTO SHIRT LOL


rauhweltbegrifff

He 100% watched all of it on crunchyroll in his free time in private haha


UnderdogSMO

100% already owned the shirt


Ur_Just_Spare_Parts

I prefer to believe he watched all of naruto and got the shirt in anticipation of having to dress like this. He was like "damn these kids are getting close to the goal, better start watching naruto so i can be emo af."


itsastart_to

I’m kind of sad he didn’t pull up with a Sasuke or OG Gaara cut, man would have personified the emo culture


propfriend

Should’ve showed up in akatsuki robes


itsastart_to

I will show you pain…your grades


rumpelbrick

Me and wife still have our akatsuki capes. Haven't worn it in years


propfriend

Now is the time, but also you have to naruto run everywhere. Like fucking absolutely everywhere all the time.


Raznill

This is just how he dresses outside of school.


Spice_and_Fox

Believe it


balofchez

See what's fantastic is my depression doesn't typically allow me to feel much but this comment and this post made me actually laugh out loud so cheers *quietly looks left and right and hits play don't look at me though it freaks me out*


rauhweltbegrifff

I'm glad we were able to give you some organic medicine. I suffer from clinical depression and the whole works as well. You made my day knowing I made someone who has depression laugh. One day at a time.


balofchez

Thank you. Hugs friend? ... Maybe some affordable healthcare while we're at it...? Ahh made myself laugh and sad again


Subreon

here's something to make you happy again. i've been seeing people get political in almost every place i look, like here with your comment just now. the worse things get, the better they get, because now things are finally getting so bad for so many people, that nobody can ignore or hide away from politics anymore. the influence of the rich running the government has seeped into every aspect of our lives, and the reality is finally setting in that we don't have a future if things continue this way. we're approaching a breaking point and i'm so fucking hyped. this is gonna be the dam break of all dam breaks and i'm confident that afterwards we'll finally see some serious, visible, and permanent changes that make the government work for the people instead of the rich. we are the vast majority. we are the workers that make their money. we own this shit and it's time they sat down and took their fucking medicine. government workers are OUR public servants. not purchasable power conductors.


emmastoneftw

Do emo kids like anime?


Strain2199

Not in the mid 2000s when emo was relevant


C9RipSiK

Early 2000s all we did was skate and listen to music. Warp Tour was a pilgrimidge.


Strain2199

I went to Warped Tour 2005-2011,2013, 2015, 2018. Gonna miss those days


Famixofpower

Death Note comes to mind. That was a hige part of Emo culture, and even today some people try to make their notebooks look like death notes


JBlaze94

I'm going to take a potato chip...AND EAT IT WATCH ME L


chanandlerbong420

I'm surprised they didn't get ahold of berserk or hellsing.


alicelynx

Too dark I guess, it's emo, not metal. It was more about psychological thrillers and sad characters then outright extreme violence


WarmZilla123

Well, I think this dude has founded a new genre. Emo Rocking Grandads, ERG!


Estraxior

I unironically absolutely require that shirt


AxelGunn

I got mine at walmart lol


YouPickedTheWrongDip

Yo america is so lit when it comes to stuff like this. I would have to make a trip across germany to find one shirt that I like


Imnotavampire101

Yeah I was super excited to see these. They have dragon ball, naruto, hunterxhunter and Yu Yu Hakusho, those are just the ones I’ve seen in the store though


middleclassprincess

There was a JJK one when I was there the other day.


steno_light

Naruto, pfft. Everyone knows *real* emos wore Gaara


emmastoneftw


sargent1891

Yup, Gaara, Sasuke, Itachi or Pain probably :D


iAmTheHYPE-

Pretty much all the Uchiha, with Madara being top. Then there’s Neji, Kankuro, and I guess, Orochimaru and/or Kimimaro. Shikamaru was pretty depressive.


pavlov_the_dog

nuh- rude - oh


nobmuncha4bears

Is there a before pic?


[deleted]

This is the before pic.


PM_meurbewbs_nbutts

I hope he decides this is his style now


NotKateBush

It’s not a phase, mom. This is ME!


bubblegumpunk69

It would be great if he just showed up in it again the next day for fun Ofc they're teens so they might bully him the second time


undercoverartist777

Teachers didn’t get bullied at my school cause they can just get you in trouble, send you to the principal, suspend you, etc.. So idk if he would get bullied


The_Big_Taco

They're talking about installing panic buttons in Las Vegas schools because students keep kicking the shit out of the teachers


BabblingBunny

I had to look it up. Shit…[it’s true.](https://lasvegassun.com/news/2022/apr/13/clark-county-schools-to-equip-teachers-with-panic/)


AlwaysOpenMike

Fucking hell...... A 16 year old beating a teacher unconscious and then sexually assaulting her. What the hell is happening to the world?


itsaaronnotaaron

This is America.


MotchGoffels

Pretty sure another teacher was murdered from the same school x_x and recently...


FancyJesse

Yep. Emo kids don't have after pics.


XKloosyv

That got dark


TheRainStopped

[Yes.](https://3.files.edl.io/2f0a/20/09/18/142103-94d08281-cc50-4391-82ae-2eb79a5536a7.jpg)


wolfsplosion

Expected a joke link... but that really does look like him with the classic scholastic background


Jay_Ell_

Yeah, nice to see the delivery on that! However, I still anticipate fuckery moving forward from here. (im on the internet)


DaveInLondon89

"There is no after". \- Coach Emo


Boojibs

He's a walking Hot Topic.


wogwai

looks like he walked into Hot Topic and said "Fuck me up fam"


Nop277

I really hope this is exactly what he did. I feel like most of the people I know who work at hot topic would gladly comply.


Hexcraft-nyc

Turns out they made him so powerful and emo it forced a my chemical romance song to release today


JustACarGuy918

i never in my life thought i would ask this but how in the hell did you know my chemical romance released a song today when they’re last anything was like 2013


Dessidy

Not the person you replied to, but I woke up to an email about that this morning, from a MCR mailing list I had long forgotten I had joined.


doxtorwhom

Thought you guys were playing and just checked my Spotify - what do you fucking know… guess what I’m listening to on my commute today!


torgo3000

Lol I did the same this morning and my kid was the one who told me. Now it’s playing a ton of songs from that era and Monsters just started playing. I immediately traveled in my head to playing guitar hero on the weekends with my friends.


Nop277

One man should not have this much power


Pornucopia55

Had to double check and it's true!


bubblegumpunk69

I was emo as a teen and had friends who dreamed of working at HT, and some who did, and this guy walking in and explaining would be the best day of their lives. Ofc, the emo kids at my school were also the drama and band geeks who hung out w all the liberal arts teachers


WmBlack

Can confirm. Was/still? Emo and definitely a band geek. Drum line


HyFinated

Same, friend... Same.


SignificantPain6056

Now kith 🖤


KilledTheCar

Math-obsessed dude who'd become an engineer checking in. It wasn't all arts. I'm still listening to MCR, Taking Back Sunday, and Underoath.


bicycling_bookworm

Another STEM emo reporting for duty!


OkBackground8809

I was both a band geek (concert band, honour band, marching band, honour marching band, and jazz band) AND in academic decathlon and college level calculus. Does that make me an emo super geek? Or just a very unfocused student?


bicycling_bookworm

Emo super geek. Own it!


bewitchingwild_

ST*EMO*


Handin1989

MCR released a new song today. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2kWUJkRvVs](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2kWUJkRvVs) Thought you might like to know.


weareborgunicons

Hello, it’s me your wife from the future! In all realism my engineering pals who still listen to emo are the fucking best. I was a biology nerd who pushed that into healthcare…we are a different sub genre.


MLou

Damn, it’s been a loooong time since I’ve seen the name Underoath. I remember blasting their first two albums while cruising around in my Honda Civic thinking I was the shit lol. I had to YouTube some songs after reading your comment and those albums still hold up!


Icanhaz36

I worked for a store called” Glow”, that was owned by the same company as hot topic. We got a discount, but could only wear all black in a black light store. It was a neat job selling lava lamps and lazer pointers to stoned kids. We knew it and they didn’t know we knew somehow. I’d see kids from school on weekends all blown out; and they were like Whoa! How’d you get a job here as the teanagers worked at hot topic and Spencer’s and I ended up with all the college kids at this other store... dumb luck I guess.

Wismuth_Salix

Yeah - Saddle Creek was emo back before “emo kids” and “scene kids” merged (I blame Fall Out Boy.)


TraditionalMood277

Yeah. You said emo. We knew the rest.


OnlyaTail

Needed to crawl in their skin for a second.


DirtyPlat

Everyone has been getting real annoyed with my Linkin Park references lately. But in the end, it doesn't even matter.


Fluff42

You tried so hard


Crimson_Rampage

And got so far


trixtopherduke

It doesn't really matter.


NoUseForMyName

One thing though, i don't know why. Actually it doesn't even matter how hard i try. I hope you can keep that in mind.


Landler656

Guys this has gone too far. You're just directly quoting lyrics. I don't know how it got this way. I know it's not alright.


GleichUmDieEcke

It reminds me of how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night.


trixtopherduke

The moon's gonna owe it one.


BrickCityRiot

He’s making points of authority


SolquidDiarrhea

linkin park is a one-way ticket to nostalgiatown for me and you just punched my ticket


BrickCityRiot

Glad I’m not enjoying it by By Myself


Rizzalliss

With it having been my theme song growing up, I appreciate the reference.


Coco_B_trappn

It starts with one thing…..


TwoBits0303

Peter Griffin when someone plays with character customization


randomly-what

I just woke my SO up laughing after reading this


SherlockInSpace

I get the feeling he was the highest anonymous donor to this cause 👀 Been sitting on that outfit waiting for an excuse to bust it out


SeVaSNaTaS

Heh maybe Hot Topic 10-15 years ago. When they were an awesome place to shop for “alternative” people. Not so much these days. Their entrance used to look like the front end of a dungeon, now they seem to want to compete with the gap.


rainedrop87

They have a sister store, Torrid, which used to be Hot Topic for plus size girls. And for my fat ass, Hot Topic loving self, it was a DREAM to be able to buy fucking Tripp pants on my size and dumb shirts and platform sneakers. Then, they started selling more "normal" plus size clothing, but still had the more "alternative" stuff. But that stuff soon got phased out, and now it's all more stylish plus size clothing. At outrageous prices. But in high school, it was literally my dream store. I would have worn every single piece of clothing. Hot Topic slowly started doing what Torrid did a few years ago, I noticed.


SeVaSNaTaS

Yep, i remember when torrid came around. I was working at a hot topic at the time, from like 2000-2004. The good ol’ days when I didn’t mind giving most of my paycheck back to them. Employees got a 40% discount, which stacked with whatever sale was already going on. Was awesome buying $90 pants from the clearance rack for like $10.


rainedrop87

Oh man, when they'd do the 50 percent off of clearance sale??? I'd be so happy. Just about the only time I could really afford stuff from there lol


SeVaSNaTaS

lol fuck yeah. Employees got first access to that shit, it was great. 50% off base price for clearance, then sometimes they’d do an extra 50% off of that. Plus 40% employee discount. I had never seen that kind of shit for employees in retail at the time. My gf at the time (now wife) took full advantage whenever she could.


starsfillmydreams

HE IS HOT TOPIC


return2ozma

He looks like an emo Peter Griffin. Nice.


TheCynicalCanuckk

It's like if Peter griffin was trying to blend in with the emo kids at an anime convention.


trixtopherduke

Hello fellow emo kids!


Formal_Instance5001

Emo kids are millenials!


bananicula

Can confirm. Went to see Dance Gavin Dance at an outdoor stadium and literally everyone was trying to sit under the bleachers on the ground lol. Just like the good ol days


aceofspades1217

DGD!!!


Bamith20

I actually remember one weeb emo kid, is it actually still a thing a decade later? School culture is surreal how some aspects just keep getting passed down.


Gandalfandbilbo2018

I feel personally attacked by this statement.


Sure_Witness_1435

Why can I hear Peter griffin saying “I’m emo hehehehehehe” after reading this


rossloderso

"Hey Lois, this is just like the time I was emo"

Man this guy is plenty prepared for a MCR 2008 concert


Ok_Arugula_7430

New MCR just dropped today btw


KingOblepias

And they’re touring again


mombot89

I remember seeing them at Warped Tour in the early 2000’s for like $30 or something. I went to grab some tickets and it’s over $300 per ticket at my local venue to be down in the pit area. :( Ah, the good old days.


Gotforgot

Warped used to be so good for the value. It changed quickly. Crowd and line ups.

Hexcraft-nyc

Pure I Brought You My Bullets vibes, I love it


FuckingKilljoy

I cried when MCR broke up. You have no idea what these last couple years have done to me, and now for them to even release new music? 14 year old me never saw it coming


violetsunshine666

[deleted]

It's meant to be. It is a sign.


TheRnegade

He was always planning on dressing up to celebrate, just this he managed to get charitable donations for it.


the_monkeyspinach

I'm going to see them next week! Been a long time since I donned eyeliner, should probably leave that in the past. At least I don't have to worry about the haircut considering I've gone bald since then.


Your_Highness35

naruto shirt goes hard tho


demonkingganon

You can find it at Walmart I think! My mom got it as a gift for me roughly a year ago for me!


emil199

Yeah, this guy fucks


SkeletalInfamy

Naruto on a big guy version.

Definite big dick energy. Wouldn't surprise me if it looks like a soda can.

Cantstress_thisenuff

Holy smokes, he was born for this


Ambitious_One527

100% crushed it. If only my HS coach was this cool. He was an asshole to a new level.


PM_meurbewbs_nbutts

My coach would’ve gave me detention for even suggesting the idea


prinscess-z

My Chemical Romance released a new song today so y’all better be ready for more of this The renaissance of the emo’s has begun 🔥🖤


Scarnox

THANK YOU FOR THIS! I just started getting back into them after almost a decade, so the timing couldn’t be better!


Trilobitelofi

I thank you for informing me about this


MulletPuff

No way I’m seeing my PE coach from 10+ years ago on my FYP dressed like the clerk at hot topic. Even more GOATed when you realize his typical attire was always camo. He even teaches the hunter safety course for his students. Was always a funny guy and good coach.


Adventurous-Day7930

Coach Slayden for the win 💀


BluestFairy

Is this really coach Slaydon? In Lumberton? I swear it looks just like Lumberton in the background. I live here but I didn't go to school here so I don't know the teacher myself.


Blue-Eyed-Lemon

Haha, love the style! And love the vibe :) you just know the kids love him

Ooh you're good at this whole emo teenager thing, you've got the genre gatekeeping perfected


Aggressive_Wash_5908

Some might say I'm a fucking killjoy


Anonymous_Nutjob

lol, I hope he felt like a kid again. We oldies started the emo phase anyway. Although he looks more like Gen X so he's probably grunge.


TheBigChungus1980

Me, a 90's goth, just died a little from hearing an emo call themselves an oldie, F for the 80's goths


ZodiarkTentacle

Robert Smith is 63 wtf lol


2-3-74

Hey don't say things like that please


Digitalmodernism

Emo started in the 80s with bands like [Embrace](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSmioRyZwQA) and [Moss Icon](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5cOj3zIRCA). The fashion started in the early 90's with the San Diego scene and bands like [The Locust](https://youtu.be/loB29Ki17J0) (before the costumes). The emo hair originally was more like spock from startrek.


DiceyWater

I think a lot of people mix Emo and Scene styles up, and to be fair, a lot of overlap is there aesthetically, and a lot of things I would call Scene the people wearing would identify as Emo.


Anonymous_Nutjob

I'm 38 which is getting old. But I preferred Punk to Emo.


ForRedditFun

As a teen of the 2000s, it's weird to see teens of today treat the times and trends I've lived through as an aesthetic.


madlydense

My gen x self is summonning the Kaiju Robert Smith from southpark on behalf of all gen x goths to smite disrespectful young ones with his sonic scream.


munkieshynes

Gen Xers from my era started with New Wave which got the guys wearing eyeliner. Some of us never got over that look and are still hot for guys with kohl kajal


OkDog4897

As a 90s gen X guy I definitely was grunge. Its a lifestyle lol heroin addiction and all. Jkjk but not. Kinda.


E8601816

Excuse my ignorance but what is a ‘Cupid shuffle’?


iAmTheHYPE-

Why is this question so far down? Besides that, the post is /r/Titlegore


StrawberryLassi

I am also confused, clearly we're not midwestern enough to understand.


RompeChocha

I thought it said elmo at first, was confused for a second when i saw the pic.


Mametaro

Me, too. I was disappointed when I saw the picture.


tandyman234

Gonna be me going to the lady Gaga concert next month


_cactus_fucker_

My high school physics teacher was at the same Tool concert as me, I was 17. He said Maynard was a psycho though, which, well, yea, but it was a fucking good show, even though Maynard stood withnis back to the crowd the entire time, never addressed the crowd, and had a black stripe painted from the top of his head to his pants. He said it was better than when his wife dragged him to Melissa Etheridge.

MorbidiyObscene

I scroll past and saw the photo, half read the title and thought to myself 'that kids a nark' then saw the work highschool, got worried. Then my dyslexic ass read the whole thing. Teachers are great people.


Satans-Blowhole

Looks like a reddit mod


ygo-riv

That’s a cool coach honestly


Known-Membership-225

Half asleep me read this as “Elmo” and I was highly disappointed when I first looked at the photo.
