Hardcore punk is a subgenre of punk rock that originated in the late 1970s and is characterized by its fast tempos, aggressive lyrics, and political and social themes. Hardcore punk is known for its DIY (do it yourself) ethos and its focus on social and political issues, and it often emphasizes a DIY approach to music production and distribution.

According to Wikipedia, hardcore punk "is a punk rock music genre and subculture that originated in the late 1970s. It is generally faster, harder, and more aggressive than other forms of punk rock. Its roots can be traced to earlier punk scenes in San Francisco and Southern California which arose as a reaction against the still predominant hippie cultural climate of the time."

Some of the most famous hardcore punk bands and artists include Minor Threat, Black Flag, and Bad Brains. These bands are known for their style-defining albums and songs, such as Minor Threat's "Out of Step" and Black Flag's "Damaged."

Typical instrumentation for hardcore punk includes electric guitars, bass guitar, and drums, as well as vocals. Hardcore punk has differed in different countries and decades, with different bands and artists bringing their own unique perspectives to the genre. In the United States, for example, hardcore punk has often been associated with the alternative rock and punk rock scenes, while in Europe it has taken on a more experimental and diverse sound.

Hardcore punk music is often used for underscore licensing. Its fast tempos, aggressive lyrics, and political and social themes are well-suited for use in scenes that require an energetic or rebellious feel.
