J-core is a relatively new general term for Japanese hardcore techno and/or metalcore (not to be confused with Jtek/J-tec - general Japanese techno, which has been around for a longer time and isn't hardcore) that can refer to many varying styles, such as gabba/gabber, happy gabber, happy hardcore, hardstyle, emocore, trancecore/freeform hardcore, nintendocore, speedcore, techcore, breakcore, thrashcore, noizecore, noisecore, melocore, deathcore, mathcore, idmcore and so on. Such songs are fast and have high bass factors. Tracks can often contain samples from movies and tv-series (especially anime), games or sometimes just about phenomenons occuring on internet such as "who was phone" and other classic memes.
Because it is a mostly underground scene, j-core is oftentimes very difficult to acquire.
