i said no one 2 steps not no one hardcore dances. and you hit your friends, you hit everyone theres no rules. maybe its just because this is all ive ever been exposed to, but when i started seeing vids of kids from other scenes all standing 5 feet away from each other and scratching the air i dont see a purpose.
every time i post though someone will say im whats wrong with hardcore when they come from a nothing scene ( not saying you, just in general this happens).so ill just say what i think anyway.
hardcore has embraced the weak for being weak which i think is bullshit. so quick to label everything "tuff guy" if you cant handle a show than you dont belong in hardcore. this shits gotten so watered down and is nothing at all compared to the JUDGE days. fuck you if you say its all tough guys, because you want to buy all the new merch, put your fist in the air and sing all the lyrics you studied before a show, and you get hit by someone dancing. once you step foot in the bar/venue you better be on the defensive.
hit and get hit. hold your fucking own, dont cry about it. remember its HARDCORE. rick ta life would be ashamed of some one you lolol.
Disclaimer: this is my opinion, maybe its different from yours but this is based off what i know from my scene, so yours may differ
This is def something I agree with and always have. I never understood people getting heated over being hit and I never understood the "unspoken rule" I am so used to.
I thought you said no dancing I guess I misread but videos like you posted are what I had in my head as a ny show. NY bands just play a totaly dif breed of hardcore, all the old school shit and new heads keeping it alive is so much better than the new stuff being pumped out -- where every song is basically filler, breakdown, over.
The only times I understand no one getting hurt at a show is at like GCF or BANE
