  • What's with the haircuts of these bands?

    Will these "rock n roll comb-overs" be made fun of in a few years? It seems like everyband now has this hair cut and it seems more important than the music. These are bands take themselves seriously too. Anyone else notice the overabundance of this hairstyle? Here is an example:

    It's the emo-cut. Get over it. Hey, at least it's not as bad as the fauxhawk!

        These guys (on a recent cover of Keyboard) gave me the shudders... I have no idea what they sound like but one of my friends who, unlike me, is certifiably hip, was using them as exemplar of lamebandhood.

        (That picture is far too small to really capture the awfulness of their haircuts [which, of course, is totally subjectvie; no such thing as a bad haircut, etc ] )

          It's a haircut! Yes it's ridiculous looking but you should see mine from '81. So what? It's pop music and you need to be noticed. Flock of haircuts?

            But this is the, er, Second Wave of Emo.

            The first wave sported the Spock Cut, a fine look if there ever was one...

                  That train left the station a while back... being covered in tats is pretty much a thing of 30-45 year olds around here, now... it's an old man thing... all over again. There are still a lot of piercings... which makes me think that people are more thinking twice about making permanent changes.

                  I could walk around today with slightly spikey haircut I had in 1981.

                  In fact, when I cut my once-bottom-of-the-rib-cage pony tail in '73 down to a close cropped-punk-ready cut -- at a time when all the used car salesmen and cops were just adopting long hair... I decided that real style comes from inside you.

                  I guess, having embraced the hippy thing pretty fully, going through years of scaring old people and having to hassle with GIs and self-styled rednecks (not the real kind, the 'adopted-attitude' kind), I guess I was a little more nuanced in my approach to punk/post-punk styles.



                  And NO ONE ever saw me in a rave hat...

                    I didn't really see the tattoo thing take off in the mainstream until the last 10 years. I mean like average kids thinking it was ok. And now we have TV programs like "Inked" on the "Arts & Entertainment" network. Ha! That just kills me... I remember when A&E first started up. Now a show about tattoos? What the

                      So that's what it's called???

                      I've been wearing a longish cut like that for years. It never occured to me that it would become the 'in thing'.
                      Looks like I was Emo, when Emo wasn't cool.

                      Funny too, I was just thinking about getting it all cut off and spiked.

                      Hmmmm...What'd ya think? Should I ride this one out, or buck the trend?

                      Hey, it looked hip enough on Ray Manzarek.



                      I always called it the Late 70's Computer Geek cut
                      Ya know? Like Bill Gates


                      Or like Steve Jobs


                      The Emo cut just has late 70's computer geek written all over it!
