Kids that hang out at the mall and suck each other off while listening to slipknot and think they are tough as nails.

If you cant name a local band from your hometown chances are you are not hardcore... You are mallcore.

Mallcore bands: killswitch engage, shadows fall, all that remains, horse the band, deicide, bleeding through... And so on.

Disclaimer: just because your band is in hot topic doesn't make you mallcore. But if the average person that likes your band is under 15 and has parachute pants eye makeup and dyed hair you are now popular enough to be considered a mallcore band. This does not make your band bad but it only drives away real music fans and older crowds from buying your cds and going to your shows.
Mallgoth: Dude i was at the killswitch engage show and some local band opened and were mad good. Too bad i spent my allowance on kse merch. Otherwise i might have bought that local bands cd.

Sean Connery: thats because your mallcore ya wee fuckin girl!!

A derogatory term used by elitist asswipes to describe a style of music derived from or inspired by nu-metal, as well as other popular genres such as hip-hop.

Often, the protagonists of the term "mallcore" are fans of old-school and/or underground metal and are unable to appreciate the fact that for the younger generation, guitar solos are cliche and hackneyed. They also lack the vision to understand that complexity in music can be achieved by more than just playing the fastest and the most notes possible on any given instrument, i.e. guitar, drums... Complexity can also be found in song structure, though it is not necessary to the effectiveness of a basically good song. In fact, simplicity can be as much, if not more of a factor in effecting high quality in music as a blazing fast solo, a fact that underground metal elitists fervently deny. (see above)

"Mallcore" is also used as an adjective to describe the people who listen to "mallcore" music. These people are often younger, much the chagrin of their older counterparts (metal elitists).

There is some debate as to whether "mallcore" music is hated more for it's substance or for the fans of the genre. Some believe that they have an equal share in the blame, as often old-school metal elitists base their identity in their fanaticism of old-school and underground metal, therefore when their music and collective sense of style are shunned by the younger generation they feel insecurity about their "coolness" and the "coolness" of their music. It is a strange but probably typical duality that most elitists ignore the fact that they ridicule "mallcore kids" (a common term of derision) for finding identity in their own "mallcore" music.
1)adj. I can't believe that kid doesn't like my favorite band, Slayer. What a stupid little mallcore kid. I hate him and his clothing.

2)noun I hate mallcore. It's so catchy and easy on the ears.
