Various bands began to turn away from the macho bravado of the pit to open themselves up to greater creative expression, experimenting with their sound to bring in melodies, indie rock subtlety, great waves of earsplitting noise or in some cases even jazz. With a more emotional outlook, it became the genre of choice for those who like brains and thoughtfulness in their music as well as brawn. These are 10 of the best bands who screamed from the heart….

The 10 essential post-hardcore albums | Louder

As punk and its many offshoot genres were thriving in both the mainstream and the underground in the late '90s and early s, a new version of a previously-existing subgenre started to take shape, and that genre was post-hardcore. The genre dates all the way back to the '80s -- depending on who you talk to, Big Black is post-hardcore, Zen Arcade is post-hardcore, and Dag Nasty is post-hardcore, though none of those things sound like any of the others. The genre thrived in the '90s, thanks to Fugazi, Quicksand, The Jesus Lizard, Unsane, Drive Like Jehu, and a slew of other bands who don't necessarily sound like the '80s bands or each other , and it hit the mainstream in the early s thanks to bands like At the Drive In, Glassjaw, and Thursday. Specifically, it's about 15 genre-defining albums from that era. Even tying post-hardcore to an era doesn't necessarily tie it to a sound. Post-hardcore constantly crossed over with metalcore, screamo, emo, indie rock, and more, and some bands fell into two or more of those categories at once. It's a subgenre that really should be split into a few subgenres of its own, so for the purposes of this list let's call these bands "melodic post-hardcore.


Post-Hardcore is a genre of music that developed from Hardcore Punk, itself an offshoot of the broader punk rock movement. Wanting to arrange an AMA? Shoot the moderators a message. There's the mids wave of Post-Hardcore.
