But seriously, please please please stop calling everything you hear a breakdown in metalcore.

Metalcore bands do indeed have breakdowns, it's a very common, very annoying thing, for the most part. Not that breakdowns are a bad thing, some bands pull it off, Botch for instance.

However, it just irritates the hell out of me when a band that has NO similarity at all to any hardcore band out there gets called metalcore because they have lame ass breakdowns. It's sort of insulting.

Anyway, here is some metalcore:

lol wut?


FALL OUT BOY IS TEH METALCOREZ!!!
TEHY HAV BRAEKDOWNZ LULZ.


Ha.
Ha.
Ha.


Seriously now, just relax, your views on the genre of metalcore aren't going to change anyone's ideas about the genre and who fits in it.

Just deal with it.

Also: Converge suck, their singer sounds like he is being castrated with hot irons.
I don't know how anyone but a hardened musician could listen to that bulls**t.

Yo dude. I don't care if you don't want bands like Trivium discussed in this section, I could care less. I'm just stating that a lot of people are mislabeling things, and god damn, genres are defined by a sound, not opinion.

And for the record Trivium's first album was metalcore by a stretch.

I agree with you, many 'metalcore' bands are just a commercialised version of Melo-death, however:
a)I don't even have to say this but, it does not matter.

b)This thread will change nothing.

So just close the thread, and just chill.

I like how everybody is telling me to chill for posting a thread on the internet stating my opinion.

And towering death, I'm always right.

And yeah we have a winner, but I was hoping a thread posted for educational value would be appreciated, but then I remembered the average user on UG is 15-16 years old. Woops.

Well don't be stupid enough to put crap like "this'll be closed cause the metal kids dont know what hardcore is". You think members are just going to let that fly?

I think that if members were intelligent they wouldn't give two ****s about my stating a fact.

I'm sorry if I "insulted" you eve, but this is kind of more a direct response to that TTEOTD thread.

I don't see point in fighting over any of this, u tried to make a point u did and the pigheads eat u alive....

Well guess what, we're all idiots and we aren't quite up to par with your level of intelligence. So think about what you post before you type.

EDIT: It's not about being insulted. It's common sense that people will react to you calling them ignorant.

Ignorance is a lack of knowledge on a subject, it's not an insult.
#25
Yet it still goes on everyone should just not post then it will be closed and we can all go back to supporting metal not fighting over it

saying that you are more knowledgable on a subject simply becuase you don't like what other people think is ignorance as well

It's not about not liking what other people think, it's about not liking incorrect statements people are making...

No matter what you say, there's a sound, objectively, that defines hardcore as a genre, metal as a genre, etc.

No. There are specific elements of the music itself that define the genre of something. It's not an opinion.

Otherwise it would be like saying in my opinion a book about elves and dragons isn't fantasy.
#30
i am the robots, man...Go complain about it in the hardcore/metalcore forums. No one in here want's discuss your lack of caring for other people's opinions because you think no one should label the bands metalcore. Honestly, get over it. Your just making yourself look like more of an ass. On a side note, has anyone reported this yet? It is getting rather annoying. As the title says.

well can you prove elves and dragons don't exist?

seriously though i know what you're saying, i honestly hate all these subgenres anyway...all i'm saying is that if you let all this labeling get to you...you'll go insane

w00t.

Anyways, it's hardly worth arguing over, purist metalheads will never accept the current wave metalcore influenced of mainstream metal as tr00 metal, and hardcore kids will never accept it as hardcore. Let's just pretend the mall-metal doesn't exist and be happy.
