Been on a DIY/Punk kick since I started reading this board. Mainly cause all the recommendations are usually punk rock. I think me turning 30 in 36 days has something to do with trying to feel 17 again.

Yeah, you grow up and can't sustain that kind of passion or energy. It burns too bright. What's funny is that I used to listen to hardcore for the anger and aggression, and now it makes me happy and nostalgic.

That was by far their most commercial album. I like it, but the music, which is what stands put to me, wasnt as good IMO. On Letting Go has insane guitar work, very ambient.

Here's their first album. It's the defining document of hardcore. Also, it's no surprise it never became mainstream.

I agree Bad Brains first record is largely regarded as the "hardcore bible" so to speak...

My likings tended to lean toward the West Coast hardcore scene, specifically Blag Flag... It was more visceral in nature than that DC straight edge stuff (which i did like)...

I don't tend to use the word commercial pejoratively. For me, it was the very first Circa Survive album that I didn't turn off.

I could not agree more. Every new album I hear from a current act makes me say - 'I wish I had this when I was 16."

Faith/Void split. Especially the Void side. Motherfricker.

FWIW, most of that stuff is probably more aptly described as post-hardcore

Brand New grew out of that genre with the Devil and God.

Well it sure as heck isn't hardcore, nor is the vast majority of it true screamo. It's post-hardcore that was colloquially described as screamo in the early '00's by people who were ignorant as to what that actually meant.

Disagree. Emery, From First to Last, Underoath, Saosin, Thursday, The Blood Brothers, Bear vs. Shark, Alexisonfire, Finch, Thrice, and mewithoutYou are the poster children of that era's post-hardcore-bands-that-were-mislabeled-as-screamo/hardcore.

The only one on that list that I would consider to be screamo is At the Drive-In.

Underoath is definitely screamo and Emery certainly had elements of it.
