Emo Song Lyrics You Can Use As Pick-Up Lines
With apps like Bumble leading the way, there are more chances than ever to test out some new pick-up lines.
But why spend time attempting to craft a brand new line when you could look back to some of your OG fave emo songs for inspiration?
Sure, you might scare away the potential bae with your talks of slitting his throat, or he’ll recognize the reference and you guys can bond about your old emo personas before falling madly in love.
Here are some of our faves for you to use, because “RAWR XD” is so overplayed these days.

Only use this if the potential bae is actually hotter than hell. Otherwise, pass.

A little bit naughty, a little bit emo, and a little bit of Alex Gaskarth, what could possibly go wrong?
“Stab my back, it’s better when I bleed for you.” – “Stab My Back,” by The All-American Rejects
Make sure they know you mean in the figurative sense, not the literal sense!
