Any form of music, usually used to describe any usually overrated band/artist/genre described as "scene" or ending with the suffix "core," used as a negative connotation to indicate their mediocrity in musical complexity, originality, intelligence, talent, etc.
My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Circle Takes The Square, Silverstein, Atreyu, The Used, Hawthorne Heights, 90% of local New Jersey bands, and any bands that call themselves "hardcore" to avoid the connotation of the word "emo."
