They're both Metal.

It's just that the first one is an extremely shitty take on it. And goes in Hardcore Forum because of their Metalcore classification. Second one is Metal, just not everyone likes them.

No-one else need post.

Why should you give a **** whether it's metal or not? If you like it, you like it.
It sounds like you're just going by what other people say. **** that, man.

then what would i listen to, cause i don't like rap, rock is ok, oldies deffinitely not, screamo not to bad, a new term i learned called metalcore is good, but my favorite bands weren't classified under that list so i was wondering what the difference between them was. I wasn't looking for a smartass replie

The metalcore forum can be found in the hardcore part of the genres thread.
Metalcore isn't considered metal mainly because of the hardcore-influenced vocals and breakdowns, and the lack of solos.

Metalcore is metal. But for traffic redirection purposes, it goes in the hardcore forum here.

You shouldn't let the rules of this site tell you whats metal and what isn't
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.

Since when does the factor of "if they're liked or not" have to do with them being metal?

Avenged Sevenfold were once metalcore, per se, (although personally they seemed too light for even that label. More like hard rock with hardcore.) Now they're just hard rock.

It can be hard to explain in a way, but your ears sort of start to know themselves. lol Certain things such as the type of guitar riffs, drumming, amount of double bass, etc. can all determine whether a band is considered "metal" or something like "metalcore" or "nu-metal."

Just so you know in the future, just cause people say they suck doesn't make them un-metal.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!
