    I've been wondering that lately too. Hardcore Punk used to be amazing. It seems Hardcore took many different paths. For one, it started Horror Punk. And let's not forget that Hardcore Punk mixed with Indie Rock somewhere in the late 80's and started Grunge which then went on to become Post-Grunge. I think Bad Religion is really the cause of why Hardcore stopped being so hardcore. Don't get me wrong, I love Bad Religion. They opened a new chapter in Punk Rock history by giving hardcore more of a melody (thus Melodic Hardcore). Other bands latched on to it and a sister genre called Post-Hardcore which came out of Melodic Hardcore and Pop Punk. From Post-Hardcore and Post-Grunge came Emotive Hardcore. Shorted, it's referred to as Emo. Being an all-around music lover (I love nearly everything, except for Teen Pop and Crunk or Crunkcore) I listen to all of these. I'll list the good ones and there are some unheard of ones that you might like too.

    Your links don't work. And you're probably referencing The Devil Wears Prada and stuff like that. But that's labeled scene music, not hardcore. Personally, I don't like any of it.

    Hardcore... Well, there are still hardcore bands around, they are just painstakingly co-existing with emo bands.

    Depends, do you mean 80s hardcore? Well, it's quite obviously not the 80s anymore, and music has to evolve and grow.

    Of course, there are still hardcore bands around. Mostly in the form of post-hardcore, bands like Thrice, Thursday, A Day To Remember, etc.

    Dude, Just let it go and don't listen to it! Let whoever want to still listen, and you don't have to listen to it anymore. Simple, as 1 + 1 = 2.

    And if there's anyone that's whining - it's you!
