A new sub-genre of music, started in America, which comprises of so called "Happy Hardcore" metal music. The songs are lyrically sung rather than shouted, but all the major ideals from metal are there (the double pedal, drop tuned guitars, breakdowns.) The only major difference is the songs are played in a major (or "happy") key. Beardcore is attached to this small sub-genre, because of the leading band, Four Year Strong (Who together have more hair than a sheep)
"Hey dude, you checked out this beardcore band?"
"OMG they're so rad, I gotta buy their merch and grow a beard to beat them!"
