Hardcore is not a specific type of music, or certain style of clothing. Hardcore is a room filled with people who just like you got picked on in school and in life, and in wanting something more than the monontony that is life.

...and it's not about dancing. but dancing jumping kicking screaming and moshing (even push moshing and circle pits) are fun
Hardcore = living your life, your real life
Not Hardcore = having to look up what it means to be hardcore on the internet.
Myspace = not real life.
Going to a protest, rally, or sit in = real life
get off your myspace and go change the world.

A style of rock that originated as a variation of punk rock in the late 70s/early 80s. This variation was a harder, heavier version of punk. It is a largely underground genre of rock. Most of the greatest hardcore bands were in the mid-80s.
Rise Against is an example of modern hardcore, whereas Atreyu is mistakenly labelled hardcore.

Black Flag was one of the first hardcore bands.

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."

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.

Jack Bauer on FOX's hit TV show 24.
Jack bauer once died. He was given a shot, came back to life, went back to selflessly killing terrorists, then gathered information to prevent the US from going to war against oil companies' manipulations - all while having heart spasms due to his aforementioned death. Now that's hardcore.

Hardcore is more than music. Its a way of life for some many people. Not just from the begining of punk rock since the beginning of rock and roll in general people who listen to hardcore live a different lifestyle, dress a different way, listen to louder music than the average person does.
