/\/\i know i went off on a lot of tangents but to caring about what kids wear i have this: the fashion that dominates today's HC scene is somewhat the antithesis of what "true hardcore" is meant to be about. as a rule--the kids wearing these pants are the same kids crying when i kick them on the wall and a million other things that are NOT HARDCORE. its not about being tough, but certainly these kids should understand where hardcore came from and what its about. the fashion aspect is a small one in comparison to the utter ignorance of "scene kids" but its still an issue. for me atleast.

They way this thread is describing it, the "hardcore" scene doesn't seem to be anything but hardcore assfucking gay. I mean seriously, putting that much stock in fashion and worrying about everybody else there so much puts this at a gay level somewhere between an early 80's NYC disco and a rave featuring only happy hardcore DJs.

Sure goon, ignorance among the modern hardcore community is rampant, but I'm also gonna have to agree (kinda) with Biggus Dickus. I have a fairly low opinion of any group that has a dress code.

 

Also, I think awareness of the origins of hardcore is important, but I don't think anyone should act a certain way just because a genre calls for it. I enjoy some hardcore music, but I think most moshing is silly. I don't enjoy physical violence along with my breakdowns, but I understand some people do.

i understand your point, this thread does give off a focus of fashion. hardcore is not focused on fashion, this thread is. there's nothing out-of-line about that.

What we need is for the camo pants, windbreakers and track shoe crowd to make a comeback. Straight up pre-breed the killers Earth Crisis shit...

 

 

On one level...I could not give a shit about hardcore anymore. The actual music on the whole hs been taking a downward spiral, especially around where I'm from...even 3-4 years ago we had a ton of really really good local bands and a grip of venues. Every weekend there was 2-3 good shows every night. Now all those bands are gone. Theres a ton of mediocre bands. And the general audience is a bunch of fuckwads. I'm all for people "getting into" hardcore. I've met a few younger kids who really are genuinely interested in the music and remind me of myself and my friends when we first got into the shit years ago. Shit wasnt "cool" then. Assholes at school would ask what the fuck you listened to and when you said hardcore theyd think you were into some goth shit. Now these douchebags are the kids at shows and its worse than high school. They've made all that fashion shit and cliquey garbage more prevelant than it used to be. Get the fuck out of hardcore and go back to youre Dave Matthews/John Mayer shows you dorks.

 

 

And thats really about it.

its not that "the scene has a dresscode."

 

lets play out a scenario. lets say that in the punk scene (jam band scene, rave scene, whatever) all of the kids starting showing up looking like the bastard children of the cure, paris hilton, and cradle of filth. these kids soon come to dominate the scene--making up well over half of the kids at show nowadays. wouldn't this stand out to you? wouldn't you wonder where the fuck did this become punk (jam band, rave, whatever)? why the fuck are these kids here representing MY SCENE to the public w/ that image that has nothing to do w/ the ethos/ideology of the true scene?

 

image is huge, to deny that is silly. for me its like marketing. i love hardcore. its made a huge difference in my life. when i see these kids w/ the "new scene image" i know that the hardcore i have embraced with pride is going to be seen by some people as no different than goth, punk, or whatever.

 

perhaps i shouldn't care about the judgment to passed on the scene, i should live for myself. i do, but if i tell somebody, "i'm a hardcore kid," i would be pissed if said person thought of this 17551247_l.jpg

Wow. Well...a couple things.

 

You're kinda claiming to not care that certain kids dress a certain way, you just don't want the outside world to think that's what you represent when you say you're into hardcore. ok. So, not only are you very concerened with outsiders' perceptions of your passions, you'll go so far as to disclude others' because they mislead society's outlook on the hardcore community.

 

Not only would I not give a fuck what anyone thought of something I'm involved in without talking to me about it, I certainly wouldn't give a fuck if they thought less of me/it just because someone who I went to shows with dressed kinda funny.

 

"image is huge, to deny that is silly. for me its like marketing."

 

I deny it completely. Image is bullshit man.

 

New favorite quote: Hardcore is marketing.

that whole cutting people open at hardcore shows has happened. There used to be a group of kids around my parts that would come to shows with boxcutters.

 

If anyone got outta line, face lift.

played that shit in '02, went in '03, never going again. too many makeoutclubbers, too many bands trying to rip off bands from the current era (*cough* american nightmare)

 

modern life is war are one of the best, if not the best hardcore band of this decade. trust
