looking this up on wikipedia, it claims fightstar are a member of this genre. wut?
Surely not? Well I guess they might be a really shit one.
although it strikes me as a really, really terrible lazy journo term more than an actual genre of music.
I mean literally, anything that sounds like Fugazi is post-hardcore, right?
Fugazi = Hardcore
Post = After
After Fugazi = Post Hardcore
...ay dios mio!!
the memebers were in hardcore bands origianlly, yeah?
I don't know, I hated that band...
Isn't that a banning offence? Where's fishplums.
minor threat invented hardcore
fugazi are post-minor threat
thus fugazi= post-hardcore
I hated them too. Every time someone mentions Minor Threat I eat some meat.
but you love them now?
Now I nothing them.
but meat is good, carry on.
Really? I thought that whole straight edge thing proscribed meat as well? I'm only going from this one time my old band played this straight edge club. It was fine until afterwards when a gang of them gave me funk for eating a KFC. I didn't really want KFC anyway, but it was the only thing available apart from the frankly idiotic cauliflower sandwiches the promoter prepared for us, and I wanted them to emotionally suffer. So I scarfed that filthy greasy shit down and made out like I was enjoying it. Then I pretended to like Dischord artists to get this girl to sleep with me, but apparently you have to "be in love" first, so that didn't work out.
but as I understand it Minor Threat didn't invent Straight Edge, they just sung a song and lots of people took it very seriously and brought in veganism etc. I've only had good experiences with Straight Edge people and have never met any crazy activists.
I somehow doubt they would have 'emotionally suffered' watching you eat KFC.
You should really take some time to listen to the dischord bands who aren't super serious crazy preachy types (ie all of them).
Oh, I knew all that, I was just trying to be funny. The only person suffering that night was me.
I wasn't going mad!
interesting hard rock
about punk diy ethics as well as the music cough *busted* cough. Can you just become a "post-hardcore" band?
What the fuck is pre hardcore?
and you should probably oppose any kind of "post" in genres then. Post-rock makes a lot less sense.
Serious genre names are gay.
Why doesn't this forum have the option to delete posts?
NO TURNING BACK.
we wouldn't have nearly as many DiSisms otherwise.
pre-hardcore was just punk.
then there was hardcore.
then people in hardcore bands got old and slowed down and then you had post hardcore ;o)
