This is gabber for any Melvins not in the know

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4evOD913Z8&feature=related

I just wanted to know if anyone actually listens to this, or know if anyone listens to this. Of course I can't say it's not a legitimate form of music, but WHAT THE HELL MAN.

Also I wanted to know about any other craaazy genres of music people know about.

Oh my bloody god. Imagine if you were a girl and you woke up to find your little brother's friend standing over you with his erect penis on your breasts...


Indeed.

What. The F*ck. Was that?

Sounds more like when your playstation disc gets scratched and the music skips
Gotta keep my eyes from the circling skies...
tounge tied and twisted just an earth bound misfit...

Big English DJ called Skream recently said that if Gabber was to die only Rotterdam would care.

In my GCSE music class, we used to put on this song called Gabba Gabba at the end of lessons as a joke...that is the extent of my knowledge about the genre.

I loves me some good gabber every now and then.

TS's vid wasn't that great though, imo.

edit: That beardyman video pretty much sums it up though.

i remember gabba, pretty popular when i was in high school.
people would take coke and put on headphones with that then run around town smashing shit up.

I play in a gabba punk band, and I have a problem with your video choice as representative of the sub genre.

It would be like saying 'has anyone ever heard rock music?' And then posting a link to a Creed tune.


If anyone would like to hear my band, here you go.

In my GCSE music exam we had Surfin' Bird. Not even joking.
dirtbag ballet by the bins down the alley
as i walk through the chalet of the shadow of death
everything that you've come to expect

Haha, you guys don't know shit about gabber. If you want the good stuff, check the Dutch releases, especially those from the 90's.

Let's give some examples.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmRUYKHm-WM (This is what kinda started it)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4An_ELs6wY&feature=related (Paul Elstak, one of the big boys in Hardcore. Stepped over to a subgenre later, best known for...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJkgOK-7Sj4 (Happiness. There were the Party Animals, Charly Lownoise & Mental Theo, and a couple of overcommercialized groups.)

This is when the genre split. There always was a divergence between the lovers of faster- and the lovers of slower hardcore. Where the happiness faded away in the early 2000's, the other half danced on to a more crude form of Hardcore, known as...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eXqxsV_83M (Gabber. This is what you apparantly don't like, because of admittedly a very shitty production. This is also subdivided into various speeds, Gabber sticking around 170-180 BPM.)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUZZde8Lvw8&feature=related (This is what you usually hear somewhere in the middle of a hardcore festival, since everyone is doped up or the song is just good.)

The other subdivisions are UK Hardcore, Freeform Hardcore, Terrorcore and Splittercore. The last two are just speed variations, the first two are more focused on the melody than the others.

Know the roots.

Haha, I didn't expect some actual Gabber heads to actually come out of the wood-works and defend it!

Don't worry I distinguish between hardcore and Gabber, Happy Hardcore was pretty big in England. I would hear that shi- music, every know and then walking back from school past the the local gippos and thier spekkie brew. But correct me if I am wrong, because I really don't know anything about it, but is what I posted gabber?

This man knows what's up.

Don't forget speedcore, it's in between terror and splintercore iirc.
