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.
Strangly enough, only people without down syndrome or other mental handicaps seem to venture into this frightening territory of hardcore tardness.
term is derived from the adj. hardcore, which has been used to define a strain of more aggressive punk rock from 1978-98. However the term mutated to encompass other shitty genres of quasi-punk sounding bands. These bands are also labled as "tardcore" by bands who feel they don't fit under the hardcore lable. Especially since the scene is dominated by dick-wagging testosterone junkies who sneer at anything xenomorphic to them.
Behaviour, as well as music like such also classify as tard core. What a diverse term.
