Ok, so I'm in charge of getting music together for a road trip with my friends. The music that all of us can agree on the most is sort of 'lighter' hardcore, such as UnderOath, The Bled, Alexisonfire, Fall of Troy, that kind of thing. So I need some recommendations of good bands like that as I don't know too many good ones.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

I'd just put on a couple on a few punkier bands like The Bronx and Hour of the Wolf, but I can't say I'm desperately keen on the bands you mentioned.

not all of these are hardcore bands or anything near being hardcore bands, they're just somewhat similar to one or more band that you listed. or maybe just something i think you'd like.

Just to clear up, I do generally listen to harder stuff than this, that's why I asked for suggestions of good bands since I didn't know many. But this kind of music is a sort of middle ground we can all agree on.

And thanks for the suggestions so far.

There can't be a lighter hardcore then it would be lightcore...or maybe moderatly heavy core...

underoath and the bled arent light hardcore. they're not hardcore bands at all.

and if you're looking for 'light' hardcore, you're not going to have much luck.

for 'lighter' hardcore, i would just recommend 7 seconds or set your goals only because they have clean vocals.

Theres a "light hardcore" type music....I've never heard any band called that, but thats just me...I'd agree that Protest the Hero is good.
