However people seem to say that Hardcore is a form of grunge music, or 'movement'. Hardcore is actually a genre of dance music, that containes no element or 'punk/most/greebo' genre, but is simply electronica music, with faster beats. Quite large throughout the UK and Europe, it is played commonly at raves (A gathering of about 1000 sweaty people in an arena from 8pm till 6am, all completely mashed on either ectasy, base or cocaine (maybe even all of them).

Famous hardcore DJ's are DJ Hixxy, Scott Brown, Darren Styles, DJ Sy, Dougal & Gammer

Hardcore is not too be confused with Happy Hardcore which has sadly made an sort of epidemic around almost all chavs in the UK which contains a vast majority of chavvy scottish teenagers calibrating songs with bad beats, timing. And all of them using the same music sample on there MusicMaker. Examples of these twats are 'DJ'Cammy, 'DJ'Rankin, 'Gav Fuckin Bee' 'DJ' Carlee...and almost every other scottish teenage chav.
"Trance is shit mate, put some decent hardcore on."
"Wheres my clubland extreme hardcore CD."
"This DJ Cammy shit aint fucking hardcore."
"DJ Hixxy is by far the best hardcore DJ around."

Aight guys
This is how to be hardcore

Girls,wear your hair more to one side than the other,and dye it some other color in a random place

Guys just have it in your face. It doesnt matter how you do it

Get a myspace/facebook and say hardcore stuff on it like:
"Im not trying to please you,go away"

Wear glasses even if you dont need them.

Be random. Random=hardcore

BE DIFFERENT. Even though you dress and act like every other typical teenager,you ARE different because you like rainbows.

Girls,be bi.
Guys,be bi curious.

Get odd piercings and tattoos. (or say you're going to,that's also hardcore)

Put periods at the end of everything you say.

Get a bf/gf and after two weeks say you're in love them

Starve yourself when you're depressed. (Okay you can have that granola bar real quick,just dont let anyone see it)

"Accidentally on purpose" roll up your sweatshirt sleeves to reveal the cut on your arm,then roll it down real fast,but make sure people see it!

Flip your hair out of your face even when it's not in your face.

Blog that you're so misunderstood and you want to run away.

Wear skinny jeans. Colored ones are a plus

Girls,when you're taking a picture,you need to hold the camera up and hold one side of your head
Guys take pictures where your hair's sweepish and you're smiling (do not show your teeth!)

Wear Vans and Converse.


be afraid for our generation. BE VERY AFRAID.
I wear VANS and like rainbows. Me=hardcore

This is a genre of music that spun off from punk in the early 80's. It is typically just fast punk music with a "hardcore beat." The other hardcore which could be referred to as "Modern Hardcore," is unrelated to the original hardcore music. "Modern Hardcore" involves metal screaming/vocals, double bass and technical guitar (NOTE* Slayer was the first band to really use double bass), is basically people that like metal but do not want to call themselves "metal heads," so they adopted the term hardcore.
Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys played hardcore music in the 80's.
A good hardcore band today is A Global Threat.
The kids that wear camouflage and like to hear some sick double bass are not "hardcore."

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.

a form of music with hard fast delivery. simple and effective sounds, mainly focussed on a message. message is ussually unity, anarky, strength or public power. can range from straight edge to emo-core. has a dance style with it known as circle pitts and ninja pitting. some bands include most precious blood, alleged, from the ruins
at the hardcore gig we formed a circle pit and everyone thrashed, or ninja pitted. the music was loud and hard.
