When Laura overshot that jump by 5 feet and smashed into that tree with her shoulder it was fucking hardcore. I would have her children even though I'm sure she would mercilessly beat me.
Hardcore - what is it?
Harcore is not about fashion. Harcore is not about who can be the most "scene". Hardcore is about the music. I'm not sure where the confusion in what hardcore is started, but it has always been about the music. Here's a little history on the music.
More recent hardcore of the late 90s and today. Examples include some of my favorites:

Hardcore - meaning
in the music sense, a form of underground music that takes music to extremes. started in the early 80`s with bands like minor threat and black flag. i like to call this classic hardcore. then in the late 80`s there were many hardline, "positive" straightedge bands like chain of strength and gorilla biscuits. i like to call this oldchool hardcore. then in the early 90`s straigtedge became rediculous, and the bands got more metallic, with bands like Earth Crisis and Strife. I just call this hardcore. Then all throughout the 90s there were those hardcore bands with the scary, grindy sound, like converge, dillenger escape plan, or discordence axis. Then there were some bands like 10 yard fight who tried to re-create the hardcore sound of the late 80`s, a few were ok but most really sucked. This developed into what some people call "posi" hardcore. These days, you have your choice of shitty mosh hardcore, or screamo, or emo-core. Now hardcore is just a melting pot of all the sounds in one. its one big emotional, positive/negative, noisy vomit. its ok i guess. i liked how it was better in the late 90s early 00s.
quality hardcore bands: converge, bane, shai hulud, american nightmare, minor threat, gorilla biscuits, ten yard fight, joshua fit for battle, the now, 18 visions, forstella ford, hot cross, pg.99, discordence axis
Hardcore - definition
A variety of punk rock originating in the US in the early '80s. It involves shouted vocals (as opposed to growled) with a fast, aggressive tempo and a guitar sound featuring quick chord changes. Minor Threat, Bad Brains, SSD, and the Circle Jerks are known for this style. By 1986, a new style of hardcore came out of the New York scene. The NYHC scene added mosh breakdowns to mix, but the music retained its fast aggressive nature. This spawned the youth crew scene, a positive straight edge scene featuring such bands as Youth of Today, Chain of Strength, and the Gorilla Biscuits. Judge is a notable band from this era that added some metal style to their riffs. In the 90s hardcore took many different direction, bands like Lifetime and Turning Point took the late '80s sound (particularly the melodic approach pioneered by the Gorilla Biscuits) and added a softer sung vocals and the lyrical approach of DC bands like the Rites of Spring and Dag Nasty. Other bands like Earth Crisis mixed hardcore with death metal growls and slow brutal guitars. Today many bands continue to play the early '80s fast, thrashy style as well as the so-called '88 or youth crew style, while still others have taken the sound of bands like Earth Crisis farther and mixed in more metal elements such as double bass drumming. Hardcore refers to all of these styles, though metalcore is best used to identify bands like Throwdown or Converge (who don't really sound anything alike but both mix metal and hardcore). Finally, some bands like Bane, With Honor, and Comeback Kid are mixing positive youth crew style hardcore with more complex metal riffing without straying into the beatdown, double bass drumming style of metalcore. People talking about old-school hardcore should be referring to one of the hardcore sounds that developed in the '80s, regardless of when the band formed.
early '80s: Minor Threat, Government Issue, Black Flag, SSD, Jerry's Kids, Youth Brigade, Bad Brains, Agnostic Front, JFA

Mick Foley and Edge performed in a hardcore match at Wrestlemania 22.
An adjacetive used to describe a person who is indominatable of will. This person can and will sustain serious, possibly life-threatening injuries as a matter of course in daily life, and then will continue to tredge on as if unscathed, inflicting incredulous amounts of pain on those that get in his/her way. A hardcore person refuses to give up, no matter the odds, or the situation, which can sometimes lead to people thinking the person "stupid." To truly be hardcore one must display wounds and/or scars as if they were medals of honor and constantly impart the amazing stories that accompany such medals with great enthusiasm. This word should only be used to describe the manliest of men.
