Editors’ Notes The '90s was a huge decade for hardcore as the genre underwent a divergence of sounds and approaches, sparking numerous new styles and subgenres. Early in the decade, bands like Earth Crisis and Born Against took things in a heavier direction—a sound which led to the success of bands like Refused later in the decade. In New York the continued impact of metal on hardcore produced heavyweights such as Sick of It All, Madball, and Biohazard, while California had more melodic acts like Pennywise and No Use For a Name. Take a tour of the decades evolving hardcore scene with these key artists.
