I'm thankful that being an "emo" wasn't an option (as a subculture) when I was younger, or I would surely have been one. Clearly I was emo, but there wasn't a group of us.
Fun fact: I discovered Imperiet this way: I had a bit of a hang up on the sentence "Die Mauer im Kopf" (yes, these things happen...). This was early in 2001 and Napster was still going strong so I wrote "Die Mauer" in the search-field and waited for a while. Then a song popped up: Imperiet - Die Mauer. Whoha! It was great! I later found out that this song was wrongly labelled as Die Mauer is really an Ebba Grön song. But anyway. Rom byggdes inte på en dag. Mhm!
