What’s happened to the days where you could turn up by yourself and be looked after by everyone there,
Where if you fell down there would
be 10 people there picking you up,
Where you could sing your heart out without the fear of being judged,
Where everyone was treated equally,
Where if a fight broke out it was stopped within seconds and removed.
Where you could listen to a band at home, in the car, bus, train or at a show and it didn’t matter,
Where as soon as you saw someone in a good bands shirt you were automatically mates.
There were no gangs, straightxedge, vegan or stoners all got along, fights were rare or just didn’t happen and everyone left there with a smile.
Somehow people have managed to ruin hardcore, and I’m not happy about it.
