A term that describes the portion or the music played by members of the hardcore community connected or adepts to the Hare Krishna movement. Had its roots in the early 80's with bands such as Cro-Mags and Cause For Alarm (although Krishnacore itself would did not exist yet). Grew from the straight edge and established itself as a sect inside Hardcore in the early 90's with the growth in popularity of bands such as 108 and Shelter.
Krishnacore pretty much died by the end of the 1990's after around half a decade of fast growth and worldwide recognition.
