And the term wigger. We all know what you mean. White n*****. Just come out and say it, racist.

well well well here is my synopsis of the hc scene at least from my observations at dudefest this year when i had to sit through about 20 shiity hc bands just to see Pig Destroyer, GenghisTron(a pleasant surprise reminded me of btbam), The Dream Is Dead and another surprise Total Fukking Destruction. My letdown was Ed Gein here i thought they were supposed to be a grind band but they were just another shiitty hc band more overated shiit imho.
But lemme tell you about your beloved hardcore kids omg do those mf believe in soap or deodorant? I mean shiit would it kill them to change their fukking clothes once in a blue moon? and not look so gay in there loafers and collared shirts and high water pants i mean wtf? And those gym shorts there was a dude that looked like tommy chong with a pair of a american flag gym shorts? Fukking gay your scene sucks total a$$ sorry. with your man purses and shiit whatthefukkever you can try to kick my a$$ with your gayass karate shiiit. Sheesh.

If you believe that Killswitch Engage is hardcore and their fa**ot a$$ fans are hardcore kids, your perception is completely wrong. Also, the last Pig Destroyer show i was at smelled far worse than any other thing i have ever been too. Just curious, where are you all from that your hardcore "scenes" are so gay sounding.

Luckily in Baltimore, it is nowhere near as gay. Sure, we have our mall punks giving our sh** a bad name, but that kind of crap does not bode well at shows here. There is actually alot of crossover between the hardcore and metal scenes here (and not in the metalcore/ screamo way). Many people into hardcore here play/ listen to alot of metal (especially doom) and punk. Same goes for the metal guys listening to alot of punk and hardcore.

I went to Ninjafest a few years back (Champion were supposed to play on the Sunday but they had to pull out for whatever reason...and now, after they've been broken up for however long, I absolutely love them) and most of the bands were tough-guy hardcore bands, and they weren't even near what the hardcore scene is about. The hardcore scene is about unity, about getting through everything and about living, spreading brothership and taking the most out of life.

I, myself, am mainly a follower of street punk (Down And Outs, a freaking amazing live and on record band, are playing Ninjafest so may pop in to see them), ska, post rock and some death metal (Vehemence's God Was Created album was an absolute dime), but I do love a lot of hardcore, and the people who have posted on here mostly have seemed to have seen a side of hardcore I either haven't seen, or stay away from. Hardcore broadens to become amazing stuff. Listen to Modern Life Is War, and tell me you're not influenced, dancing or emotionally connected in any way, and perhaps you really generally aren't a follower of hardcore.

Just look beneath the surface, see whats living there, see what breathes words which you could only dream to be in a song. Hardcore isn't about hatred of any kind, it is about action, about getting up and living life. Believe it.

a) rk, it sounds suspiciously like "somebody" got his a$$ kicked by a hardcore kid once upon a time. Your comments are ridiculous emotional outbursts without so much as a hint of logic or reason.

b) Ninjafest will not consist of any bands that sound like Killswitch Engage. There are far more "metal" kids who listen to that bullsh** than there are hardcore kids who do.

I personally love metal. In fact, I prefer it. But have also been involved in hardcore for just as long. And let me tell you, hardcore festivals and shows in general are attended by far more intelligent, positive, well-mannered people than metal shows. I hate going to metal shows because of the incomprehensible level of stupidity prevalent amongst the crowd.

This is fantastic! roughly 2 million years of human evolution has transformed the long-forgotten pastime of beating clubs over one another's heads to tapping little square plastic buttons in in order to arrange words from an alphabet consisting of 26 characters onto an intangible medium in a vain attempt to attract recognition and gain a sense achievement and self-congratulatory pleasure.

Who knows, perhaps when we're all long dead and rotted away our predecessors will look back at the landmarks of human endevour such as this thread and be stunned in awe at the incredible articulation and healthy, logical, reasoned and democratic debate and insist on making this and related information mandatory in educational curriculums around the world.

Great stuff! please allow me to share a few facts with you. Modern human variation is a relatively recent phenomenon. Evolution is a very, very slow process and occurring all around, look in the mirror, you may notice something about your body evolving before your very eyes! I often do this in the hope that my right hand will magically expand to the size of my other (normal sized) hand!!! (yeah right, Jeremy get over it! -I can hear you say!) But I digress. What scientists do know is that modern humans' evolution is notably distinguished in increments of tens of thousands of years or more, so perhaps with a relatively less physically intimidating environment we live in today, it is difficult to pinpoint any significant evolutionary evidence. Leading me to get a sneeking suspicion that we're pretty much a bunch of upright-walking apes. Although, catching a glimpse of my mug in the morning may convince you even further! XD

Although I love 'Painter of Dead Girls', PD are the biggest let down I have ever seen live in my life. Twice. But back to the spirit of the thread, I'm amazed at the use of the english language used and am very glad that such World of Warcraft-isms as 'pwned' have become everyday vocabulary ( possible sarcasm ).
At the end of the day Ninjafest will come, good times will be had, bands will rage, people will get drunk ( despite some straight edge-infiltration ), possibly laid in the evening afterwards and memories that will last a lifetime will be made.
RK, where's your festival? Complain all you want, why don't you put something on with PD and an exclusively metal selection of bands if you're so vexed over 'edgefagfests'.
I'm glad you pointed out hardcore dies in the 90s because I must have been hallucinating at all the shows I've been at since then when hardcore bands were playing and people were going mental in response. By your own logic, metal died in 86 when Slayer and Metallica put out the best records of their career and debatebly the genre as a whole.
