My name is !@#$%!. I went to this party in a basement and these bands were playin' hardcore music. The crazy thing is I had just watched
a documentary called American Hardcore
. Creepy, right? So naturally I immediately thought to myself that this must surely be a trend and that hardcore was making a huuuuge comeback.

I wasn't aware that playing (usually very bad) hardcore in basements at parties ever went away, !@#$%!. When did it ever become a novelty to remark on as such?
