Being "Hardcore" these days, doesn't mean you have to party, or fight, and be a devil worshiper. You can still be hardcore in that way, but this is different. Hardcore kids are fans of core genre music. Hardcore, Post-Hardcore, Party-Core, Etc. They are some of the most dedicated music fans out there today Taking in every lyric and meaning, really feeling the music they dedicate themselves to. Side note, they don't listen to screamo. The majority are NOT EMO. EMO kids have nothing to do with a music style. The music itself is usually about things such as girls, life experiences, complex metaphors, ideals, and sometimes more brutal things depending on the person NOT the music style itself. Hardcore music Is NOT EMO or DEVILS music.
Now looks vary to anything. There is no specific look, though a lot seem to have a style in common. The look typically would be, Band t's, Bro Tanks, Skinny Jeans, Shants, Toms, Moccasins, Long Hair, usually straight, Abstract hats or jackets. Tattoos.Piercings. NOT ALL hardcore kids have gauged ears.
Personality, Most are the happiest, craziest, most random people i have ever met. Usually very creative, original, musically inclined. Can be straight-edge but a lot still party. Positive out-look. A brutal, but real take of life. Very enthusiastic, hyped up, and kind of obnoxious.
Give them a chance, and stop being ignorant fucks.

lets see a true hardcore kid does not wear tight pants thats gay scene bullshit. and crews are not a part of hardcore. true hardcore kids don't follow a trend and they don't have to dance at shows to be hardcore. hardcore is about not following trends. it's about being free from the masses. and you don't have to be edge to be hardcore anyone can be edge.this is the true definiton of a hardcore kid they don't give a fuck what you think. they do what they want to. they don't follow your stupid trends. and they don't join stupid crews.
ignorant kid: hey look that kid has tight pants on and a black band shirt on he's hardcore.

true hardcore kid: your so stupid that is not hardcore that is scene bullshit. he looks like such a fag. by the way. YOUR TEAM.

Any person who listens to hardcore. They listen to Righteous Jams, Champion, Set Your Goals, Hoods, Donnybrook, The Warriors, Bury Your Dead, etc. They go to shows frequently and mosh. They wear sport shorts or camo and always wear band shirts. They do not have extensions or any of that pussy shit but shave their heads. Most of the time core kids are ex scenesters or ex punk looking for a true music scene. they do wear tight jeans but not their sisters, thats for pussies. They 2 step and spink kick and the majority like Positive music and claim Straightedge.
Aaron: Dude i just went to Nordstroms and got these awesome Modern Amusement shirts for $200.
Josh: I spent $30 on my outfit and ill be more hardcore than you will ever be. I spinkick, i two step, and i live pure. I am a hardcore kid.

HxC kids don't wear tight jeans, or have big hair, or listen to any bands listed above.

Typical HxC Kids have buzzed hair, khaki or gym shorts, and pullover hoodies.

REAL hardcore bands

REAL HxC Kids will don't do that gay "hardcore two-step" dancing talked about above either.

Leg tattoos are popular, but someone with all of the "stupid" piercings listed above like septums and large gauges is really a scenester, not hardcore
Hardcore Kids

Hardcore Kid, "Fuck those scene kids"
Hardcore Kid2, "Yeah, if they don't want to be in the pit, they should get the fuck out"

a kid who listens to hardcore/metal heavy music: throwdown, the bled, bleeding through, as i lay dying, nora, darkest hour. stuff like that. they are usually dressed in black band t shirts and blue jeans. but some may dress whatever they want. they go to hardcore shows and hardcore dance which is where they punch air and do ninja kicks. they are not afraid of getting hurt and will always stand up for themselves. they are tough and they dont care what people think of them. they hate being called emo and they will always start shxt for that. but they are also never uptight in anything. they are never mad at anyone and usually never hate. they are usually funny and fun to be with and also like to have fun. random things are their favorites. they are just like most normal people but they wont take shxt from anyone.
holy shxt i just got hit in the face. fxckin cool lets go again

a young person who listens to frantic and hevy music. when at gigs, a hardcore kid will punch an kick the air in a spectacular fashion. however, in a breakdown several hardcore kids will enter a pit and kick the shit out of each other. hardcore kids are the toughest of any alternative person. but beware: there are many bogus hardcore kids about! its rather popular to be one nowadays
i'm a hardcore kid, wanna spin kick in your face?

A fan of the hardcore music scene. Sometimes, but not always, straight-edge. Their clothing is usually either basketball shorts and track shoes for freedom of movement while hardcore dancing or tight pants and a band t-shirt. Bands can include, but are not limited to, Throwdown, Terror, Hatebreed, Norma Jean, Between the Buried and Me, etc.
That hardcore kid almost hit me in the face!
