A phrase coined by the techno-industrial band Front 242. In fact before the term was commonly used by club-kids and rivet heads it was being printed on many Front 242 music albums near the tracklisting.

EBM transformed from heavy drummed post-industrial to sounding something more like synthpop. To those not in the 'scene' it could be described synthcore: something inbetween industrial and synthpop electronic dance music.

Epic Beard Man (Thomas Bruso aka Vietnam Tom aka Tom Slick) is a 67 year old war veteran who gained internet fame on February 16th, 2010 in a video which was filmed by Iyanna Washington and was posted to YouTube. In the video, our elderly hero finds himself confronted by a racially sensitive and reasonably angry drunk black man. He subsequently surprises us by delivering a beat down so crushing in its righteousness that it has touched the scrotum of Jesus himself. Predictably enough, lulz ensued and 4chan dropped everything to crown their new King. Epic Beard Man is a MOTHER FUCKER. He even has the shirt to prove it.
EBM kicked that nigger's ass on the bus. The nigger din do nuffins.
