Crycore is defined by a type of emotional music and style, definable to "Hyper-Emotional Depression Hardcore", where it's wanted to have the Person(s) listening to that type of music and be part of that culture cry vigorously and sporadically.
Some have defined Crycore as a style made not to dance but to feel on. A Crycore show would include extreme hardcore Emo type music and people sulking in circles and crying, instead of dancing.
The Crycore style is fairly simple: basically you will know someone is crycore because his eyes are red from crying, (or drugs) his body posture is on the absolute negative side, with shoulders arched inwards, absence of meaning in their language and facial expressions, very ironic, satiric, self-deprecating and dark humour. The classic clothing style of a crycore will be the eternal dark clothes, but often unwashed or made in that "dirty" appearance. The useage of skulls and imagery of death is omnipresent and does not endorse violence against others, but self-hatred and self-mutilation is common practice among Crycores.
Crycore should not be confused with chronic depression. Crycore is a style and will usually be used for attention and showing off for attention. The style also defines the emotional side of people who are considered crycores (as shown in the example of Eric below, where it's okay to just cry by yourself because that is what you are: a crycore and that is what crycores do) Females are much more likely to become crycores than males since it's more socially accepted for females to show emotions and cry out in the open.
Crycores are generally very annoying and depressing, unless they are with other crycores. Crycores are often rejected by everyone but other fellow crycores, or people with a lot of pity - and in that case, they can even drive the person with pity and good intentions nuts and even have THEM reject them.
Crycore is the epitomy or negative self-image styles and is only reserved for the purest of emos. Crycore is seen a lot more in metropolitan areas, such as New York for example.
IMPORTANT: CRYCORES WHO BECOME TOO FUSED WITH THEIR STYLE BECOME SUICIDAL/LONER AND DEVELOP MENTAL PROBLEMS. BE SURE TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOMEONE WHO IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND SOMEONE WHO IS PLAYING PRETEND DEPRESSION OR SOMEONE WHO IS WITHDRAWN AND CAN BE DANGEROUS. ALWAYS CONSULT THE PERSON FIRST AND GET TO KNOW THEM - DIALOG IS THE BEST THING FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING CRYCORES.
Crycores are not ones without drug problems. Actually, crycores sometimes invent drug problems that come out of their own imagination, or "suddenly" become pregnant, to have something to cry about.
WARNING 2: I suggest you stay far from becoming a crycore, even if the style might be appealing for attention getting, but nothing is more repusling than people with unfixable problems.
Eric is a Crycore. he's listening to "tears of tomorrow's sorrow" by the band "I never told her I loved her", a Crycore band and he suddenly feels driven with an urge to cry and lets it out for a good hour.
Later that day he will meet Sandy and talk about their first breakups. Both will cry in each other's arms.
They decide to go see a show with their common buddy Tom, and at the show, they mass around in a circle and just vascillate idly with their heads looking down, crying togheter.
