Like many other genres of music, hardcore is not a new-fangled phenomenon. It developed from punk in the 1970s. Hardcore found its beginnings in America and was intended as a counter-movement to the English punk scene.
Lyrically and thematically, the hardcore scene was based on punk themes. Musically, however, it was faster and harder than it's punk cousin. In hardcore, fans and musicians try to stay true to their former ideals and the scene is not as commercial. But as with many other genres, the transition is fluid, especially nowadays, and extends into to different genres.
