This is a genre of music that spun off from punk in the early 80's. It is typically just fast punk music with a "hardcore beat." The other hardcore which could be referred to as "Modern Hardcore," is unrelated to the original hardcore music. "Modern Hardcore" involves metal screaming/vocals, double bass and technical guitar (NOTE* Slayer was the first band to really use double bass), is basically people that like metal but do not want to call themselves "metal heads," so they adopted the term hardcore.
Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys played hardcore music in the 80's.
A good hardcore band today is A Global Threat.
The kids that wear camouflage and like to hear some sick double bass are not "hardcore."
