Simple question, for a school research project: "What does hardcore mean to you"?
#3
thats not what im asking, im asking what meaning does hardcore music have to yourself personally. what does it mean to you?
#4
to me the only good hardcore was a 15 mins hardcore match when the title could change hands unlimited times with in the 15 mins, at wrestlemania

Hardcore, to me, is a waste of talented musicians and guitar amps.

then why are you here?

As far as definition goes, kinda like was already said, punk but faster and heavier.
Personally, its just..fun music haha. I'm not sure how else to put it.

My local hardcore scene means a lot to me. It's something to do where I don't feel totally alienated. Playing it is a good form of expression. Really all there is to it for me.

It didn't "save my life", or some bull**** like that, but it sure as hell helped me find myself and not be a ****up.
#11
It means fucking shit with my crew. Tough guy sXe for life!!!

/blatant sarcasm

Hardcore punk actually used to mean a whole lot to me. Whenever I'm angry I still throw on some Circle Jerks or Black Flag.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

hardcore is not too much more then music for me tbh. im somewhat involved in my local scene, but its not all i listen to, and i dont feel more connected or anything by being part of a scene, im still my own person and would be with or without hardcore. i just love the music.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

hardcore is just something that me and my friends can share

like playing with my band, it gives us a chance to just hang out and do stuff we enjoy, especially since i dont see my friends too much because of school

Hardcore for me is relief. When Dream Theater, Yes, or Dr. Dre doesn't fit the mood, I always know that Gorilla Biscuits, Dangers, and Champion will just hit the spot. Hardcore to me has a lot to do with the shows. In a circle pit, everyone is family. Although you're beating the crap out of the people around you, they'll pick you up when you fall over. There is nothing but raw emotion and energy. I feel a euphoria that no drug could give me. It makes me feel a part of something different and amazing. Thats hardcore for me.

its one big family

Nothing gets me more pumped than blasting hardcore... I really have never identified with it as a means of expressing anger, I like to listen to it before track and cross country meets to get excited, or while I'm running by myself. Also, playing it extremely loud while in the car with friends is really fun, haha. I actually only listen to it when I'm really happy or excited, now that I come to think of it...

hardcore to me.

is the energy you GET when the song begins. its the adrenaline you get when punching the floor after a bad day in school. its the sound of your knees cracking while running in the circle pit but you just can't stop because there is no tomorrow. its the handshake you get after pulling a fallen stranger up from the ground. its the pump you get during the end of the song where everyone pushes forward, puts their fists in the air and scream the exact same words into each others faces.

either that or its the x-ed up fists, camo shorts, those hip-hop looking flat hats with the golden shiny sticker and the keys with the hooks to hook on your pants
