There was a time when hardcore was more than music, it was a movement. Anyone, regardless of how well they could play an instrument could express themselves musically in ways too agressive, too brutal and in most circumstances too honest for even edgy mainstream music. It was a time when bands were willing to push the envelope while breaking all the rules, and didn't let the fact that they had to do it all by themselves stop them. True hardcore is an unstopable messege, totally seperate from the countless trends (from Bleached hair to Girl Jeans) that have come and gone. It's going to a show with 9 kids or 1000 kids who are perfect strangers or your best friends, and knowing that everyone in the room with a soul is compelled with the same unmatched intensity, to "think how they want to think", to "do what they know is right" to "be what they want to be" and never let anyone even think they can stop them.

I think over the years we've all gotten spoiled to the point where we don't care about much more than what we have, how many "babes we can slay" (if you're a dude) and above all else, our social status. People get so caught up in that shit that they can't undertand the value of something that doesn't provide any material benefit or make them appear special in whatever way, yet it has the capacity to empower every kid to live life to the fullest, be his/herself and have a shit-ton of fun in the process.
I think it's unfortunate that people these days pick out all the trappings of hardcore, the fashion trends, the image (there are tons of images) and limit hardcore to just that, since it suits their superficial way that they approach the world. It makes about as much sense as taking the pickles off of a big mac and calling them hamburgers (i mean if you really like pickles.) I hope this definition helps people reexamine the way they think about hardcore, and spread the word to people who don't know any better.

One who gets their hair cut from a Cuban man named Tony. His signature style is known as the "tony cut", usually involving some sort of ice tips.
dude #1: "yo man I wanna be hardcore"
Chronee: "yeah man, me too, thats why I'm gonna go to Tony's"

a dedicated fan of a band or artist who owns everything the artist has put out, and talks about said artist for hours at a time and knows everything there is to know about the artist, and attends concerts by the artist when they can when the artist comes to their hometown or closer to it
I am a hardcore Eve 6 fan. I have all three of their albums, two t-shirts, and the soundtrack to Out Cold, which they appear on.

harcore is influcenced by real punk and real metal(I'm not trying to say that the genre is fake by the way my just saying it's a branch off), this genre mixes both which overall makes some half decent music. but its a genre that has suddenly become very popluar and you can't tell the posers from the truely hardcore kids. But the thing that worries me about harcore is its branch off is EMO!
some hardcore bands are: Walls Of Jericho, Terror, Madball, Comeback Kid, Bleeding Through.
