FOBby question of the day II

I hear people saying emo, which I guess stands for emotional.

However...  What is emo music?  People use the phrase as if there exists a separate music genre called emo...  Is this the case, or are they just referring to songs that provoke deep emotions like sorrow, loneliness and such?

Also, is there a rather specific connotation to the word emo in general?  Because I see the word is often used in a derogatory context, e.g. emo fag.
