    Hardcore is just short for hardcore punk. Why do people still not realize this? All of the modern "hardcore" bands pretty much play crossover thrash or metalcore.

    hardcore an offshoot of Hardcore Punk? What kind of BS is that. Hardcore stands for hardcore punk. I don't see any hardcore punk in the top artists here. Sure, I see artists with genres that have a hardcore influence in them, but I don't see any staight up hardcore punk bands. Where's Minor Threat? Bad Brains? MDC? D.R.I(early)?Agnostic Front(early)?Suicidal Tendencies(early)? Black Flag? Fear? 7 Seconds? Gorrilla biscuits? Jerry's Kids? Rich Kids on LSD? And I know this is supposed to be the punk type of hardcore, but just ''hardcore'' can also refer to hardcore techno or hardcore hip-hop, making it even more confusing.
