Aesthetics Wiki

Revengecore is an aesthetic based around the concept of getting revenge on those who have wronged you, whether that be ex-lovers or just school bullies. Revengecore is the aesthetic that My Chemical Romance's second studio album, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge was based on.

While there's no clear way to determine when revengecore originated, it is likely it branched off of emo in the early 2000s, hence why the media caused the aesthetic to gain traction, though it tends to not get separated often.

While the revengecore aesthetic is often traced back to fans of the band My Chemical Romance, it isn't an aesthetic based off of the band, more that the band based their album off of this aesthetic. Revengecore is a dark and gloomy, red and black image relating to the concept of revenge usually with a motif of blood, roses, or text on the image (similar to Traumacore) that is either a song lyric or a threat of revenge. Images of revengecore can easily be found on Pinterest, and a small community on Tumblr.
