personally i can't stand it when bands do that.

they should stick at what they do best

most of the time all they do is convert thier older songs to acoustic and it very rarely works

i kind of agree i like it when hardcore bands releasea f ew acoustic songs, as long as they're done right. If they are covering old songs and they actually change the song to fit an acoustic setting i think it sounds awesome. a few songs come to mind but i can't think of their names.

ACOUSTI-CORE!
i know a few local guys who do this
and its not ridiculous,
it a real thing,
i actually really like the whole "spitting up blood vocals" over acoustic guitar for some reason

Ringworm have a couple of acoustic tracks thrown into their albums. The only one that comes to mind is called Whiskey Drunk

There's an acoustic part in a Defeater song that always really throws me off.
Either way, the closest acoustic should come to hardcore is folk punk if you ask me.

this was my favorite, like, I always buy special edition Chiodos albums for the acoustics at the end, Lindsay Quit Lollygagging acoustic is beautiful

but it really depends on the singer's melodic voice

apparently you don't know what Emo is?

Emotive Hardcore, it's just Hardcore with Emotive lyrics, meaning expressing ANY emotion

technically bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Bright Eyes are considered "3rd wave emo"
obviously Fugazi / Rites of Spring are frist wave
bands like Taking Back Sunday and From First to last became 2nd wave
so he's right on target saying sappy acoustic songs are emo

i dont know how it evovled (devolved?) this way, it just did

At least one of these statements is correct.

Totally agree, I hate that, although I suppose I'm a strange exception, I even hate it when most bands do acoustic covers of their own songs. The only remote way I see this working is with a band like Opeth who intertwine it into their already progressive music (I realize they aren't hardcore or metalcore) but just as an example of that working in rare cases.

That is definitely the only thing he said correctly, everything else about that statement was retarded.

I think you mean Embrace, rather than Fugazi.
Fugazi is a poor example of early emo, not only because they came around kind of late in the game, but there was so much more going on in their music for them to be confined to just the "emo" subgenre.

Another tie where redoing songs to fit acoustic is when they completely manipulate and change around the lyrics/music (Baby you wouldn't last a minute in the creek is one example)

@ OP: As blood runs black has an acoustic song (Pouring Rain, I believe)

Those aren't all acoustic parts though, Paul just switches to a clean channel for most of those (I guess I'm nitpicking) but my point is you'll never see an acoustic guitar on stage at a btbam concert that's for sure.

On the topic of Biohazard; I'm still in disbelief that the vocalist from Biohazard played a major character on that show Oz.
