look up any word, like hipster:
suffix added to a bunch of musical genres supposedly branching off of 80s hardcore punk. Some of these genres are more mainstream and more watered down than others. However, in the latter years, even the true DIY genres are being polluted by a huge influx of scenesters and other types of upstuck little high school cliques who think punk is "hip." Now everybody wants to listen to the unpopular bands cause being unpopular is cool. Angsty clueless trendy teens have used the shit out of "core"
"2 years ago, nobody knew who the fuck Charles Bronson were. Now they're the "in" thing, just like converse chuck taylors"

"Screamo, metalcore, and all those lame ass genres scenesters revere and call "hardcore" are nothing but whiny crappy hot topic commercial bullshit"

"Holy shit! When will we invent something new these trendy-ass bastards won't know about?"

A suffix added to words to make them sound cooler. Usually derived from the latter half of "hardcore". Music artists use this when they have nothing better to call the drivel they put out for the RIAA.
Since Fred coudln't decide what sucked more, him or his music, he figured he would stick to doing rap-core.

core is used by most of the scene crowd. It is added to the end of certain words to make them that much more scene.

ChristmasXcore would be worth more scene points than christmas

This can be also used a singular word to sum something up as bein bare cool
Dude, how core was it when you raped my family?
