Hardcore music started out in the 80's as a spinoff from punk. The music is often heavy in nature. Breakdowns and double bass have been known to cause destruction in the local moshpit. Hardcore music is about hanging out with your friends and standing for something, either in politics, beliefs, staying positive, straight edge, whatever. Most people who are involved in the hardcore scene attend shows that their favorite bands are playing at. It doesnt matter if it's your friends band playing a local house show, or dancing with 50 kids at hellfest.
Unearth, Walls of Jericho, Throwdown, Converge, Darkest Hour.

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.

Okay.
To start off.
Hardcore is music.
Containing breakdowns,double peddling, brutality.
Many kids nowadays run around saying their HARDxCORE or SCENExCORE!!
When they listen to MCR, The Used, and other crap like that.
And they don't even know anything about the music they supposedly "listen to"
That is NOT hardcore.
Hardcore is Bury Your Dead,Throwdown,Black My Heart, Anterrabae, Symphony in Peril,Evergreen Terrace,Terror,Scars of Tomorrow, Most Precious Blood, It Dies Today and much more.
Don't go around judging hardcore based on those posers you see.

Hardcore bands: Bury Your Dead, Stick To Your Guns, It Dies Today, Throwdown
