A style of music oftentimes revered by both the gringle and the scene subculture. It is a style of rock/metal that utilizes metalcore qualities, such as the breakdown and the high scream. All vocals are either screamed or cleanly sung in a higher pitch. It is a direct descendant of hardcore metal and emo. Typical bands of this genre are Parkway Drive, A Day To Remember, Pierce the Veil, Asking Alexandria, Fall of Troy, and Arsonists Get All The Girls.

Sound: something like the bastard child of emo and metalcore.

Image: Clashing and vibrant colors and patterns with a sometimes cartoonish overtone. Logos of Crossover Grime bands share a similar motif and can be recognized easily when compared.

Etymology: "Crossover," referring to the bridge between emo and metal + "grime," referring to blatant musical similarities it shares with grimecore.
Greg: I was in Hot Topic the other day and all the shirts there are marked by the staple of Crossover Grime bands, that bright orange logo in strange font on purple a purple background, with a picture of like a fucking rabbit. I don't see the appeal.

The typical genre of music that gringles listen to. It appeals to a wide enough audience that makes the bands relatively successful and famous, but a narrow enough audience that they don't sell out. It is stylized by overt technicality, yet not without melodic quality and is a direct descendant of hardcore metal and technical death metal. Typical bands of this genre are Veil Of Maya, The Faceless, Born of Osiris, Periphery, The Red Chord, The Acacia Strain, Through The Eyes Of The Dead, etc.

Sound: similar to djent and deathcore, but as with emo, punk, goth, and any other prevalent subculture, the bands are less characterized by their sound and more by their audience. i.e. the gringles.

Etymology: "grime," referring to the grimy, showerless nature of the bands' audience + "core," indicating that it is heavier than crossover grime.
Gringle: Yo, you guys tryina go to the Veil of Maya show? We're gonna offer them mad bud so that they'll let us smoke with them. We were gonna go toke some bouges afterwards behind the mall.
Greg: Dude. Really?
Gringle: Yeah, bro. Shit's gonna be mad tight.
Greg: You sound like an idiot.
Gringle: Word?

Chris: So did that gringle go to the grimecore concert he was ranting and raving about?
Greg: No. I think he had to go to the hospital because he ate too much tobacco.

Chris: I won't ask.
