Crapcore is a music genre with a clear aggressive mode that has nearly no lyrics at all. Most often, crapcore has a fuzzy and very fast beat, the samplings have very low quality and the vocals consist solely of screams. Sometimes single words or phrases can be heard.
There is a fine line between crap-core and crap. Crapcore is less a musical genre or style and more a method of thinking, and an approach towards creating art. While crapcore music can range from simplistic accoustic tunes to avant-garde opperettas made by screaming into a hand-held tape recorder, what remains constant is a naive ability and willingness to create despite an awful environment or the neccescity to use the most rudimentry, broken-down tools. And beyond this simplistic and haggard bum's work-ethic, crapcore always has an underlying ugly-ness. The crapcore artist is simultaniously a cynical and pretentious rip-off artist and a "outsider" idiot-artist. He or she will continue to create flawed artwork no matter the situation because of a compulsion and an inability to function within the "outside world."
Many novelty or "crap" artists often confuse their work with crapcore. Crapcore music is closely related to freak-out, core-core, far-out and avant-unlistenable, in that it is likely sloppy, lo-fi, fueled by alcohol or drugs or widely considered exremely irritating, however a wide spectrum of diverse artists could also be defined by such wide deffinitions.
Some "popular" crapcore artists include "German Cars vs American Homes", "Hasil Adkins", "Pope John Paul the Third" and "Passenger of Shit".
