^ example of exactly what is wrong with hardcore. Hardcore is hardcore man. There's so many different types. Ignorant close-minded kids and their "legit" hardcore bands. Get the fck outta here.

This is the best S&F announcement in years. Bands like Counterparts and TGI will bring in kids who are inclined to like aggressive music but might not know about all the different kinds. They'll go for those bands and hear all the great smaller bands there, buy merch, CDS, post about them on the internet, etc.. and everyone wins besides internet message board hardcore fans. Bands sell more merch and get new fans. Labels sell more CDS and records. Everyone wins.

Hundredth is the biggest joke ever. The fact that a farce of a band like that is playing one of the biggest annual hardcore festivals really says a lot about hardcore today.

only going for the ghost inside. will stand in the front and tweet and text all day waiting for them to play and ignoring the rest of the bands. then i'll jump up and down for their entire set.

The ghost inside is not a hardcore band, you fcking twats. No more than bullet for my valentine is metal.

anonymous

You guys do know tgi hundredth and counterparts bring in the girls right

anonymous
4/9/2013 12:45:54 PM
Its funny every gets mad and says TGI, Hundredth and Lionheart are not "real" hardcore. When every other band on here sounds like a late 90's early 2000 metal band. The idea of "real" hardcore is so lame. Every knows it was bands like TGI that go you into the smaller more underground bands. The best thing for hardcore is to let more metalcore/cross over bands play.

anonymous
4/9/2013 12:46:48 PM
who gets to decide what that sound is? Is it UK 82 shit like DISCHARGE? Or early 80s BLACK FLAG/CIRCLE JERKS LA style? METALLICA-lite early 90s stuff like INSIDE OUT or MEAN SEASON? 90s vsxe e-chug like EARTH CRISIS? Power violence? Crossover? Youth crew? Who gets to decide which of these are valid representations of 'real hardcore'?

I do. and like I said, Strife and Bane plus 50 suck dck no name facebook bands. and the only powerviolence bands out of the US in the last 10 years are Apartment 213 and Weekend Nachos, eat dck and cry rivers sensitive bitches.

4/9/2013 1:07:33 PM

Tragedy!?!?!? Tragedy has been around for years why now? For the hardcore kids who think they're punks just cause they're wearing a mall bought denim vest?

anonymous

Kids who were into TAS and TGI are secretly stoked but don't want to get their panties and keeper of the faith lettermen jacket wrinkled. Get over yourselves. Go cry by rotting out's merch table

The Hardcore Standard
- If you aren't on the sack of the "BIG" bands like Terror your band probably won't get to be on good tours and you probably won't get a lot of support from other bands who wouldn't dare speak out against the almighty keeper of the rules.
-Don't look like you're successful even if you are. We all know bands like Rotting Out sell more shirts than a swap meet but by wearing their own shirts you still think they struggle!

Hardcore kids are so stupid it's unreal. Hundredth is NOT a joke based on their music. They are a joke because they used the whole gimmick of being a Christian band then dropped it when it wasn't cool. They make all their merch out of the designs of other bands that are revered by most hardcore kids. They latch onto their charity thing to make it seem like they are more important than they are. Ask bands that they toured with what they honestly think of them as people. They are a laughingstock.

Why are you guys acting like as if TGI is headlining? No one gives a crap about TGI

anonymous
4/9/2013 3:10:10 PM
ok let me explain to you further why the ghost inside playing sound and fury is a bad thing:

on the surface it appears that the ghost inside just wants to play a real hardcore fest without a barrier, which is perfectly fine, and, ya, maybe the ghost inside does, in a way, fit with the whole sound and fury mold. but where the problem arises is that it sets a precedent for other bands in their scene to play the festival.

anonymous
4/9/2013 3:10:29 PM
this year the ghost inside is gonna play and maybe the acacia strain sees it and they think "hey that looks rad, we wanna play next year" and so they do. that sets further precedents until eventually attack! attack! is headlining and sound and fury is no longer a hardcore haven.

anonymous
4/9/2013 3:14:25 PM
god forbid a different sort of hardcore/metalcore plays a "hardcore fest". this scene is accepting.

anonymous
4/9/2013 3:17:23 PM
Except there is nothing hardcore about TGI

anonymous
4/9/2013 3:25:56 PM
"there's like 45 powerviolence bands in atl rn so wut"

sadly no, no there isn't. maybe one that hasn't even formed yet, aside from that.

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:04:44 PM
Jesus Christ. I've never seen so much butthurt in a thread. Its okay to like Hundredth and Rotting Out and Strife and whatever else. When you kids get out of your teens and 20's you will realize you just listen to whatever the fck you want. Goddamn stupid little bitch ass youngsters worried about what's cool.

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:15:19 PM
Sounds like the same bands as last year, LAME!

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:40:10 PM
Whats up with fests being boring as fck this year, Summer of Hate, This is Hardcore and The Rumble, all a huge let down.

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:50:12 PM
i like most all the bands. i dont understand why the ghost inside, hundredth, or lionheart are on it but diversity is cool. for all the people hating on it have fun sitting at home looking at your rare records that you dont play. get off your high horse and have some fun. music is music

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:54:44 PM
It's like they were too lazy to think of a new line-up and just decided to try and book all the bands who played last year

anonymous
4/9/2013 4:55:54 PM
look at all the years past 3/4 the bands are all the same

4/9/2013 5:21:47 PM
Hell's Angels and Bandidos Boys are stoked to have a wall of death

The "legit" kids are bummed they'll be more than the 500 of them (nationwide) and that they'll be people there they don't know.
Oh, and TGI are headlining.

4/9/2013 8:07:53 PM
Bane, Cold World, Cruel Hand, Early Graves, Expire,Homewrecker, Left For Dead, Loma Prieta, Nomads,
Reign Supreme, Strife, Tragedy, Wisdom In Chains,

this ALONE is worth it, there will be more announced but fcks sake with just those, thats a hell of a fest. too bad the south doesnt have fests like this anymore, like back in 2k-2k5 or so.

It's cool for fake ass rich kids (Hundredth) who ride a gimmick (Christianity) for all it's worth and then pretend like they had nothing to do with it to play because diversity, bro. HARDCORE. fckING. FAIL.

People complaining about jerks moshing, another reason to stay away from this fest.

Also I see nothing wrong with shitty bands like hundreth or lionheart playing, it gives you time to go get something to eat and chill outside.
