It's been about ten years now. Ten years of the birth of a much-maligned music genre that is officially referred to as "crunkcore", but I feel a more appropriate name would be "MySpacecore". I feel it is worth bringing up because a year ago, BrokeNCYDE (The genre's poster boys) tried to crowdfund a new album via IndieGoGo. Only 33 people donated to the campaign (not joking.) BrokeNCYDE's attempt to stage a MySpacecore revival with only half of it's original lineup remaining failed. Their self-released album "All Grown Up" never dropped off the radar....because it was never in the radar in the first place. 

But where do we begin? Well you see, way before there was Facebook and Twitter, there was a website known as "MySpace". Currently MySpace is a hollow shell of it's former self. Even it's founder, Tom Anderson, prefers to use Facebook now. But at it's height, MySpace was the Facebook of the 00's. There were three groups of people that loved to use MySpace.

  1. Emo teens. Their antics included complaining about life, showing off how "EDGY!!!" they were with self-harm photos, made profiles that caused your computer to go extremely sluggish with all the photos and automatic music players, posted photos of themselves that could be legally considered child porn, and took LOADS of selfies before the term was invented.
  2. 50-something child molesters that pretended to be the aforementioned emo teens.
  3. Loads of extremely awful emo and pop punk (as well as their mentally retarded offspring "screamo" and "metalcore") bands that the former two groups loved to put in their automatic music players.
If you are a former MySpace user that is embarrassed about your emo past, don't worry! MySpace deleted that old profile from history during their 2013 relaunch. But MySpacecore (or any music genre for that matter) is something that can't be erased from history.

But wait. Why am I using the term "MySpacecore" rather than "crunkcore"? Well you see, the exact proportions of "crunk" and/or "core" varied from band to band. Acts as diverse as BrokeNCYDE, Hollywood Undead, Blood on the Dance Floor, 3OH!3 and even Ke$ha have all been labeled "crunkcore" or have flirted with the genre at one point. But all these groups have one thing in common: an origin point on MySpace.

But who invented the genre? Most sources point to 3OH!3. By the mid-00's, emo became increasingly mainstream and it was only a matter of time before an emo act traded in their guitars for synthesizers. 3OH!3 did just that. Though unlike the later MySpacecore acts, the screaming that was inherited from "screamo" is not present in 30H!3. So who was the first to replace the emo influences of MySpacecore with screamo? Truth be told, I don't know. But I do know who popularized this "Second Wave of MySpacecore". The four gentlemen below.


 
BrokeNCYDE arrived onto the music scene with "Mikl" on clean vocals, "Se7en" on screamed vocals and rapping, "Phat J" on the synthesizers and "Antz" on the lights and fog machine. Their combination of clean vocals with heavy use of autotune that was egregious even by pop music standards, screams (which were mostly just Se7en going "RAH!" on one note, never raising or lowering the pitch of his screams), cliched synth lines and beats that everyone has heard before and highly misogynistic and childish lyrics was panned by almost every music critic. A prime example of their music can be heard below. TRIGGER WARNING: BAD MUSIC



During BrokeNCYDE's reign of terror, the comments on their Youtube consisted of two camps. The haters who sided with the music critics. And the fans. Yes BrokeNCYDE had real fans, not just "so bad, it's good" fans. The legit fans seemed to be emo/scene girls that told the haters to "fuck off" and fantasizing about one or more of the band members going "skeet skeet" on them. Though lines such as "Damn right ho your so sleezy/You give me the heebie jeebies!/You make my pee-pee hard!/You make my pee-pee hard! and Get nasty girl get nasty/And shake it like chocolate milk probably won't inspire sexy dreams if you're over the age of 12.

But MySpacecore's heyday died with MySpace. Se7en and Mikl are the only members of BrokeNCYDE left (Phat J went solo. No idea what happened to Antz). Hollywood Undead abandoned the genre before they even recorded their first album in favor of normal rap rock (though that didn't stop former member Deuce from appearing as a guest on BrokeNCYDE albums). One member of Blood on the Dance Floor got in trouble for sleeping with underage girls. Due to the epic fail that was last year's BrokeNCYDE IndieGoGo campaign, we are safe from a MySpacecore revival for now.
My course instructor hopes I'll get into underwater Archaeology (considering the fact that I live right next to  a lake) next. Maybe the SJW courses or whatever they're called, would have been an easier choice.
Back in college again and starting with an online course of cultural Anthropology.

Thank you.  You were quiet in CI for awhile and things got boring.  I may never agree with you, but you're fun.  People can bitch as much as they want, but CI is based on controversy and your posts are.

Well, the person who said it meant to offend me, but I don't respect that person very much.
