    BastiDrahtdurch must be autistic. apart from that, although i don't care much of the topmost of the top artists, it would be a sad thing to see just early 80s bands here - that'd mean the scene is dead and buried, archived in the annals of rock history.

    Contrary to popular belief knowing that hardcore is a subgenre of punk does not mean you aren't with the times. As for evolving, yeah it's evolved quite a lot. Now we have bands like Comeback Kid and Counterparts, you know modern hardcore.

    to everyone complaining that these bands aren't black flag, fear, minor threat, etc., go here -> http://www.last.fm/tag/hardcore%20punk. Hardcore punk isn't the main thing in hardcore anymore. It has evolved and changed into other things that have a similar name. Get with the times, quit complaining, and listen to some music. [2]

    Hardcore abgesetzt von Hardcore Punk und damit auch die veränderte Version bzw. härtere Erscheinung des American Hardcore der 80 bis 90er hatte seinen großen öffentlichen Durchbruch mit der Band Refused. Dabei ist es ganz wesentlich politische Themen aufzufassen und diese in Schreienden chaotischen Maße auszudrücken. Der Hardcore hatte nie die Absicht zu gefallen und wollte so nah an seinen Punk Wurzeln bleiben wie es nur möglich ist. Durch die abermals Kommerzialisierung von Punk Rock und Pop-Punk sah man sich gezwungen das Genre härter und damit auch uninteressanter für den Markt zu gestalten, dadurch blieben die Ideale erhalten.
