11 Criminally Underrated Hardcore Bands: Touché Amoré's Picks

Hardcore is, by its very nature, an underground culture in which bands come and go within a few years time — often not getting the shine they deserve until they're already broken up, or spending many years in the periphery of the scene despite making some of the best music out there.

From bands on the heavier, grindier side to hardcore-inspired acts who lean closer to post-punk or grunge, watch his in-depth breakdown of why these bands matter — and should matter more — to the overall hardcore canon.
