Oh, the allure of an emo guy, who promises self-awareness, deep sensitivity and an angry passion -- a trifecta that makes him irresistible. Sure, he might dress kind of sloppy, but that unkept, boyish man style is part of his charm.

Here are the ten hottest emo boys.

10. Jesse Lacey

With his unkept beard and predilection for flannel and hoodies, Brand New's lead singer looks like that guy you went to high school with who was a star athlete but also a really sensitive honor roll student and close with his family. Lacey also helped write such romantic lyrics as, "Take me back to your bed/I love you so much that it hurts my head/I don't mind you under my skin, I'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in." Notoriously private, Lacey most recently produced singer Kevin Devine's new double album and just wrapped a fall tour with Brand New. Sorry though, dude is married. -Katie Bain

9. Gerard Way

The lead screamer of My Chemical Romance might wear more eyeliner than you, spend more time on his hair and just generally have more feelings, but with his smoky eyes, ever-changing hair color and theatrical performances, the feisty frontman and his sexy side bangs made every living, breathing, Hot Topic-wearing female circa 2005 wish her name was "Helena" (never mind that the song is actually about his dead grandmother). Sign us up for the Black Parade, am I right? -Kelsey Whipple
