Probably gonna be the only thread i make on here for a long time, i barely come on here anymore. But I've noticed that people in the pit, and actually just in general, will say hardcore sucks. But does ANYONE actually know what hardcore is? No, not metal, not metalcore, not bands like the devil wears prada or attack attack!. I'll see threads about hating when people talk badly about a band or a genre, and then they'll just go off saying how hardcore sucks.

Hardcore is based off of punk. Sure, theres other genres with hardcore influences, but that doesn't make the band a "hardcore" band.

To quote wikipedia:

Hardcore punk, often just called hardcore, is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in North America and the United Kingdom in the late 1970s. The new sound was generally thicker, heavier, and faster than earlier punk rock. Early hardcore punk has a quick tempo with drums and vocals in time, whereas modern hardcore punk has drums and vocals which may not be on beat with the tempo.[1] The songs are usually short, fast, and loud, covering topics such as politics, personal freedom, fascism, authority, violence, social alienation, straight edge, veganism and vegetarianism, war, religion, drugs and the hardcore subculture itself.[2][3][4]

Hardcore spawned several fusion genres and subgenres, some of which experienced mainstream success, such as melodic hardcore, metalcore, post-hardcore and thrash metal.

Deathcore is ridiculous.... There's only half a dozen deathcore bands that have enough to potential to combine their genre with progressive and technical aspects... Instead of palm muting on the lowest strings over and over again in patterns.
Most people on UG aren't very nice.

That is my signature.

This is true.

u know...

ur not hardcore, unless u live hardcore. but the legend of the rent was way hardcore.
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

Most of the hardcore forum knows what real hardcore is. Yes, there's a lot of ignorant people who are totally clueless, but what else is new?

I know what hardcore is. I'm in a hardcore punk band (shameless self-promotion: check the sig). We're trying to revive the genre. My iPod is filled with Bad Brains, Black Flag, Minor Threat, and some random obscure ones from the back end of the time period. I love Bad Brains. The best hardcore band, in my opinion.
Check out Amen and ceremony for bands that fit the genre today.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

There are actually several different types of hardcore. You're simply referring to hardcore punk. Either way genre labeling is stupid and pointless.

Eh, who cares what hardcore is? I don't, but if you do, thats fine. You don't see me trying to get people to "understand" my music, because if they need someone to explain it to them, it's not for them.

There's old, and there's new. Some is thrashy, some is melodic, some is both.
