Such a stupid genre. HORSE the band are the only musicians that should have existed.

HORSE is the only band that can be considered nintendocore. And maybe Math the Band, but there's not really enough -core there. Even HORSE shouldn't REALLY be considered nintendocore. It's one of those genres that's not really a genre. I can guarantee that 98% of the bands you call "nintendocore" are just nu-metalcore bands with a keyboard player.
As far as metalcore with keyboard goes, HORSE and Genghis Tron are great. Sky Eats Airplane are pretty good. Most of the rest are crap.

Pretty much any band that uses synths gets called nintendocore. It's fucking annoying. The only other band I've heard being called that is Dragonforce, which doesn't even make sense...

Agreed on all counts.

anamanaguchi are awesome, except they are poppy as all fvcking hell. but they do live programming through gameboys and shit. i havent heard any other -core bands honestly use nintendo sounds fluently.

im guessing i should look into HORSE the band...?

never could get into that kind of stuff, although i do dig my best friends playing of the super mario brothers theme on his guitar via tapping the strings above the pickups with my homemade metal slide, and yes we where quite hammered when we discovered it.

This is completely off topic, but I'm posting it here anyway because it's almost related. I have been unhealthily addicted to The Postal Service this week.

Keith Buckley on HORSE the Band. "We would not be a band if it weren't for these guys. Their wildly uninteresting and self-proclaimed innovation is what keeps us going."

They only use a hacked NES, no Gameboys. And they aren't core at all, but they are absolutely incredible.

horse the band doesnt even consider themselves to be nintendocore, they came up with the term as a joke. genghis tron could never be considered nintendocore, since they dont use 8bit sounding synths etc..

It doesn't really exist. HORSE the Band called themselves it jokingly once because of the bitcrush synth they were using

And then all of a sudden, every core band with a synth was erroneously labeled "nintedocore".

Well, I consider it to be any band that uses 8-bit synths/samples in their music, thus sounding like theyre sampling nintendo game music (maybe some even do?).

On that note, I enjoy Sky Eats Airplane
