A musical outlet for those with no musical talent. There is often no timing or key signature, as these would take practice and work, and a moderate amount of talent to use successfully. They often contain screaming instead of singing, because it would take talent to write and sing lyrics. Basically, you'd get the same musical experience from listening to the audio of a train wreck.
I taught four monkeys to play grindcore....well, I didn't teach them anything, i just gave them instruments and let them do what they wanted. They're getting signed.

A form of music that actually originated from Crust and punk. Some originators of the genre were Napalm Death, Anal Cunt and Bolt Thrower. Grindcore draws some influences from death metal, jazz, hardcore, and just about everything. Grindcore can be characterized by odd time signatures, frequent change of tempo, complicated Jazz influenced guitar riffs and chords, complicated, extremely fast drumming (Often using blastbeats). Modern day grindcore is extremely different than its roots. While old grindcore was simpler, newer grindcore bands are insanely talented and use alot of innovations in their music. Alot of grindcore has an experimental quality as well.

Grindcore is a very innovative and non-cliche genre, and seeks to be set apart from trendy Metalcore and Hardcore bands. Yet somehow since grindcore has no scene of its own, Grindcore bands are mismatched at hardcore or metal shows. (Leaving alot of bewildered stares on the cookie-cutter scene kid's faces.)

Also, there is no grindcore scene, and one cannot "be grindcore."
