Hardcore is three things actually! 1: someone extreme or fanatical in behaviour or belief. 2: An extreme form of punk rock characterised by shouty vocals usually containing swear words which enables angry people to let off steam. 3: A fast form of electronic dance music which makes angry people happy. A.K.A. 'Happy Hardcore'.

Short for hardcore punk that started in the late 70's with bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains and in the early 80's with Minor Threat, Negative FX, Negative Approach, SSD, JFA, 7 Seconds ect. It is a music genre that is based off of a DIY (do it yourself) community. It was and will always be against the ethics of the mainstream music business to keep the music pure and away from profit which corrupts everything. Alot of people think hardcore died in the 80's but there has been alot of bands that have came and gone over the years that still continued the same diy approach along with musical styles.

currently hardcore punk is still going on in an underground DIY community all around the world with bands such as Get The Most, Rotting Out, Government Warning, Trash Talk, Ceremony, Miles Away, Paint It Black, Psyched To Die, Bracewar, Ruiner, Killing The Dream ect. Although the mainstream community have attempted to market there own version of hardcore bands through the media like Attack Attack, I See Stars, The Devil Wears Prada, Bring Me The Horizon ect. It will never really be part of the real hardcore scene going on, or sound like it.
listen to a current hardcore band like Rotting Out

or a old hardcore band like Gorilla Biscuits

A genre of music that started long ago from the punk movement. Eventually, it died down and now hardcore has become heavily confused with overrated untalented whiny-ass screamo/emo/trendXcore bands such as Atreyu, Norma Jean, and pretty much any other band worshipped by "scenesters"
The birth of REAL hardcore as told by Henry Rollins: That's when that "fuck yeah" guy got a guitar. You know, that guy in the 7-Eleven parking lot who'll look at you and be all like "What the fuck you lookin' at?" That's his band.

FAKE hardcore: Depressing poetry + eyeliner + nail polish + girl's jeans + hair covering one eye + screaming
