A new genre of music that is the next step in the neo-grunge movement. Imagine Nirvana or Alice In Chains played twice or three times as fast. Then throw in a double kick bassdrum, an unnecessary amount of guitar distortion and pile-driving bass and you get.....grungecore

A genre that mixes grunge with hardcore punk, post-hardcore, and/or emo. Part of the Emo Revival/the wave scene. Bands like Metz, Citizen, Balance and Composure, Pulled Apart By Horses and My Ticket Home. Occasionally mixes metalcore with grunge.
The most popular band that's in that genre is Basement but now there more neo-grunge than Grungecore.
