This Is Hardcore is an album by British alternative rock band Pulp, first released in March 1998 (see 1998 in music). It came three years after their breakthrough album, Different Class, and was eagerly anticipated. It did not live up to the commercial success of the previous album, despite reaching number one in the charts. Nevertheless, the album was well received critically, and earned Pulp a third successive nomination for the 1998 Mercury Prize. A "deluxe edition" of This Is Hardcore was released on 11 September 2006. It contained a second disc of B-sides, demos and rarities. CD cover of This Is Hardcore by Pulp This is an album cover. ...

Urban Dictionary: hardcore (1165 words)
I think it's unfortunate that people these days pick out all the trappings of hardcore, the fashion trends, the image (there are tons of images) and limit hardcore to just that, since it suits their superficial way that they approach the world.
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).
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.
