I feel there's a large disconnect between electronic music fans and fans of guitar driven music. However, I am an appreciator of both forms (however general that may sound) and have a large place in my heart for hardcore. Please throw in some of your favorites, new/old/whatever.

Never been a huge fan of this genre although I love that Discharge album, Bad Brains, Black Flag, Cro-Mags (does that count?), etc. Besides that, whenever I'm in the mood for this I usually just shuffle the four 'A Fist in the Face Of God presents Brad’s HXC Comp' albums, which are definitely worth checking out.

cripes, where to begin even if the macho-posturing/fighting didnt always align itself with vegan politics,,,,,,,,whats the point in caring about lil animals if you kick the fuck out of each other?


for the US specific cities are a good guide: DC-Hardcore had some rrrrrrrockin bands, grip everything by Minor Threat and the spin-off of sorts Dischord label, State of Alert, Black Flag obviously (Rollins is a fuckin institution!), fuckin love Bad Brains for "Bad Brains" and "I Against I" lp's, Dag Nasty's "Can I Say".


Moving north you can not ignore Cro-Mags for NY & CBGB's, there was a ton of stuff going on around Boston that i'm not too clued up about & you could throw in MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) from Texas/SF as well.


Crossover bands did some good gear (listed above), Suicidal Tendencies, DRI & Corrosion of Conformity, couldnt beat any of those bands for deeeep guitar chugs on top of Hardcore-style insania


There was a top vid on u-tub about DC/US Hardcore, loads of interviews but internet on this train is fookin shite, but check out Salad Days, new doc on all things Hardcore:

I don't follow hardcore acts as much as I used to these days, but lately I've been digging Single Mothers:

Hardcore is probably the reason why I love music so much. I've grown up in a town that had a very strong hardcorescene and I live near to the biggest hardcorefestival in Europe (Groezrck) so I've been very lucky to witness some of the bigger bands I love. But the best harcoreshows (and any show actually) are held in small rooms with poeple you know.

I've since moved to listening to dubstep and later IDM and a bunch of other stuff but no matter how much I love AFX and Autechre, hardcore gives me much stronger emotions than anything else I've experienced in my life musically. The problem with much "popular harcore" is that its just a bunch of fake ass gangster macho bullshit, something I really don't like.


Here are some local band I grew up with.


Accept The Change (escapism is a dying art), probably my favorite album of all time



More than life, the most emotion and honesty I've ever witnessed in a show.



there's a few others but they aren't on the internet :)


And some better known bands.





Have Heart



More than life



Defeater, recently saw them live and I've never heard a hardcoreshow that sounded as nice as that.

A member of defeater (Jay Maas) also mastered Some Verse and Have Heart records

one of my most memorable memory when I was like 15 and totally impressed with the girl that start singing in this harcore song.


hardcore was my first love in music along metallica, limb bizkit and korn lol:

I particularly loved:

from autum to ashes

poison the well


as I lay dying

the red chord

the diliger escape plan

life in your way

darkest hour


I still listen to choke qutie often, but harcore is sadly not in my life. sadly because I should revisit. theres a lot in that kind of emotion that cannot be replaced any other way then with metal/hardcore ect

I've never been a serious hardcore follower and I'm guessing this isn't even proper hardcore really, but I just remembered this song that I used to listen to back in highschool. I was fully expecting to cringe but it's not as bad as I thought would be on a revisit.

"Black Flag obviously (Rollins is a fuckin institution!)"



Henry Garfield destroyed Black Flag.

Soviet hardcore was far more badass, bitching about Reagan and Thatcher is one thing, having to escape out the back of a venue when the KGB cut the power is another.
