Lame form of music preferred by young kids who have no clue about real pain but think that dad not buying them an XBOX Elite is the worst thing that ever happened to them.

Fans always wear white socks (well, metal borrowed leather from gay culture so I guess white socks are fair game as well!), poxy caps with straight, up-turned peaks, big holes in their ears, pierced eyebrows and lips, black dyed hair, the same ugly print hooded jackets, shorts, and have lots of coloured tattoos like sXe idiots. They never know anything about the history of the genres that they claim their music comes from (i.e., metal and punk/hardcore). Next year they will love the next lame trend. Most of them were wiggers a few years ago. Vocalist of band always has the same pose, mic grip, and stupid look on his face as the vocalist of any other metalcore band. Always cup the mike for growly bits.
A7X, The Black Dahlia Murder, As I Lay Dying, another lame band with lots of syllables and/or words in their name are all lame-ass metalcore bands

Get the metalcore mug.
A watered-down form of melodic death metal, due to it's lack of keyboard, less brutal vocals, and overall shorter songs. Listened to by scenester kids, along with deathcore, who are ignorant to it's superior predecessor which originated in Sweden.
I used to listen to metalcore bands like All That Remains, August Burns Red, and As I Lay Dying, but now I listen to bands like Children of Bodom, Dark Tranquillity, and Mors Principium Est.

The term used to label two musical genres.

1) The fusion of hardcore punk and thrash metal sounding exactly like the sound of it - Integrity or Converge are good examples

2) Extreme metal, usually simplified, with emo clean singing, screamo harsh vocals and an excess of breakdowns which sound nothing like hardcore punk. A fabricated genre aimed at making money and being popular. Why is this called "metalcore" is beyond me.
1) Integrity is a metalcore band and you know why when you listen to it. It takes thrash metal riffs and uses them on hardcore punk drum patterns or vice versa. You know where the "metal" part and the "-core" part came from.

2) Atreyu is a metalcore band. They sound more like nu-metal with chuggy breakdowns. However nobody took his time to understand what exactly the hardcore influences of theirs are - I can certainly hear no breakdowns in my hardcore punk

Sure, ya got the blast beats and fast riffs, and *attempted* growling and screaming, but no, just no - it's not cool. You sound just like every other metalcore band, and it's getting boring.

The only good metalcore bands are Unearth and Shadows Fall. Everyone else just tries too hard.
