You Can Bro Your Own Way: The Best Brocore Bands
What is "brocore," you ask? Well, brocore bands are usually white guys wearing baggy clothing and, often, gauged earrings. Their screamed lyrics are aggressive or brooding, and they tend to pace, stage-dive, and fight with audience members. In rare cases they set each other on fire.
The music itself is derivative; Pantera is emulated frequently. Somehow, as Urban Dictionary explains, "they are fully convinced they are playing hardcore." Still, their tunes are not without their charms, if you're in a certain mood. Here, then, are the top five brocore bands.
Papa Roach is what happens when nu metal goes emo -- or, when sensitive dudes shout their feelings. Twelve years ago, frontman Jacoby Shaddix rapped-sang about his suicidal "Last Resort" in the band's breakout hit. But it's the video that's brocore gold. Check out Shaddix's macho dance moves as he bounces around the stage surrounded by depressed teens. He could've been a Backstreet Boy.
