Hardcore is type of music were there are low screams with breakdowns for dancing, and the guitars and bass use distortion to give it the messy effect to make it sound hard.
Hardcore is a terrible word.
Most people who say the word hardcore don't use it properly anyway.
Stop using the word hardcore and stop using the word oldschool. They are the worst slang terms to have ever been invented. Instead of saying oldschool say retro.
this is how it started.
2000-2002 punk and pop punk exploudes back to mainstream
2001-2003 emotional melodic punk starts to sway in alot of fans
2003 the punk in "emotional punk" is completley taken out and emo becomes its own genre and is almost soft rock or softer
2002-2005 screamo(intense emotional punk with some harder riffs)comes in
2004-pesent hardcore developes (a thin line between screamo and metal)and is first genre to come out of punk that is not made fun of on a daily basis.
side note: indie: a primarily NY indepent melodic experimental genre. that sounds nothing like hardcore for some reason goes hand in hand
a good sense of "FUCK EVERYONE"
...u know what FUCK this. Why does'nt everyone forget all these new so called "punk" catagories and just go back to the original real real thing..PUNK ROCK...u bunch of pussies....god dammit!!!
