Hardcore punk is the louder, angrier and more fast-paced offpsring of Punk which sprang up in various places around the United States in the early eighties. Although it is impossible to pinpoint exactly where Hardcore originated, the greater part of its early influences can be traced to three inflential bands: Black Flag, Minor Threat and Bad Brains. Many long-term Hardcore bands such as Gorilla Biscuits continue to record and tour to this date, but the initial wave of Hardcore had long ended by the late eighties, evolving into various genres from Emocore to Post-Punk.
