... so what's the difference between a genre and a post genre.

For example:
Hardcore vs Post Hardcore
Punk vs Post Punk

etc

So, pit, what is the difference?

post hardcore means emo, it just came out after hardcore, i guess kind of a subgenre that flaked off it, it just means it came just after it, possibly related to it

Creed is more "post grunge" than Foo Fighters, or so it says on Wikipedia

It's just like Post offices you know.

First you had the mass creation of normal business offices somewhere in the 19th century. And the offices they make nowadays are all called post offices because they were built after it.

Post-grunge, post-punk, and post-hardcore are all genres in their own right. They're just given unimaginitive names because they're the immediate successors of the other genre, and they incorporate certain elements of its style.

Post-grunge is stuff like Nickelback, Creed, Hinder, Theory of a Deadman, etc. Basically, it's grunge but without the grunge. Poor man's grunge, with all the punk influences removed, thus defeating itself.

Post-punk is an interestingly depressing genre, probably named because it's the unhappy outcry of people in the world where protest (punk) has done no good, and also because it has punk elements in it, but is polished. (In that respect, it mirrors post-grunge).

Post-hardcore is basically hardcore with less screaming. Again, more mainstream, I guess. (I could be wrong about this, because I'm not really into post-hardcore).

Post-rock is the subversion of rock tendancies by using the standard rock instruments in non-standard ways. Basically, it's just very experimental rock music.

EDIT: Why didn't you just use wikipedia?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

yea, you guys don't really have a clue.

emocore was a completely seperate (albeit very shoddy) splinter genre, post-hardcore is a different beast.

bands under post genres tend to be more fusion oriented, progressive and experimental, with post punk having the most mainsteam exposure (compared to post hardcore) due to it's pop tendancies.

post-hardcore; planes mistaken for stars, at the drive in, fugazi etc

post-punk; sonic youth, siouxsie and the banshees, echo and the bunnymen, the cure etc

There is some "post-rock". Sigur Ros, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, some others I can't think of. It's pretty good stuff actually.

foo fighters??
grunge


i reckon earlier foo fighters sounded more post-grunge (maybe their first 1 or 2 albums?) than nowadays where they're much closer to rock/alternate rock.

no.


grunge:
nirvana
post-grunge:
puddle of mudd

hardcore:
throwdown
post-hardcore:
the fall of troy

punk:
theres zillions, we all know what punk sounds like
post-punk:
the birthday party


the main trend that i can see is that the post-genres are more introverted than their respective counterparts.
