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.

Going beyond the clearly marked limits of regular retardedness.

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.

Bill: You are so fucking tard core.

Something that is trying to be hardcore, but it ends up being overused and just ends up looking completely retarded.

1. tYpInG lIkE tHiS iS tArDcOrE
2. Gamertags like "Blaze" and "razor" and "Demon Killer of Twilight 666" and other things like that are tardcore.
3. T-shirts with flaming skulls or tribal designs on them are tardcore, as are tattoos that have a tribal design or a skull.
4. Cars with flame decals are tardcore.
5. People who say "tubular" are tardcore.

All perople who say things like "rad" or "tight" or "righteous" are automatically awesome. And if you disagree, then you are tardcore.
