(Informal.)

Relating closely to the subgenre of whiney music known as "emo", tardcore spawns an endless line of generic bands deprived of a musical life outside of depression. Lyrical themes usually consist of broken hearts, ex girlfriends/boyfriends, lost loves, failing relationships, etc. No creativity, lack of flowing rhythm in the music itself. General earcandy for younger teens wanting to lash out because of broken hearts. Also, the general mixing of hardcore with metal, A.K.A. "metalcore".

Both nicked' "tardcore" by fans of Heavy Metal.
That whiny Alexisonfire CD is total tardcore.
