Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar riffs with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarves (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5ths of the face at an angle.
...sounds like the Page of Cups on a 'reversed' day to me! The Page of Cups even has jet-black hair, which he keeps under a cap because it's so greasy!
For a modern-day Page of Cups in reverse, check out Elmo's tortured teen cousin and you'll get the idea:
emo is a great example of a concept that has been reversed. before this whole hipster irony thing took over and made it impossible for anything to be cool or embraced enthusiastically, emo was a term for a specific genre of punk music. there was not the same pejorative aura (although like "math rock" the term came from a sarcastic joke about the style) and it wasn't about depressed kids wearing the current "emo" style at all. the bands (nobody who uses the term nowadays ever heard of any of them) were excellent examples of artists who genuinely cared about the music they made, and there was nothing fake or conformist about the emphasis on emotion.
