My mother is a hardcore actor's actor. She's not a cele

My mother is a hardcore actor’s actor. She’s not a celebrity. She really isn’t… And so her main concern was that I not fall into the auditioning-is-my-life syndrome.
Dinah Manoff
I respect Chris Carrabba as a songwriter and I also respect his past. He’s got this fierce, straight edge, kind of hardcore core. There’s so many songs that people are connected to and they all came together in a kind of DIY way, which I really do respect.
Stephan Jenkins
A lot of y’all are lonely and y’all lonely because you’re overlooking a good man. Why? Because y’all wanna be with the hardcore thug. The man that is pretending to be everything that he isn’t.

Roger Miret
I’m not putting down anyone that does look at their work in that way, but for me I am a hardcore amateur.

Billy Sherwood
Some bands sound like one song the whole album through. We’ve been all over the place because we are punk, hardcore, rock n’ roll, metal, reggae – and I think sometimes it might be too much diversity, and kids are lost.
Sonny Sandoval
Rap is hardcore street music but there are women out there who can hang with the best male rappers. What holds us back is that girls tend to rap in these high, squeaky voices. It’s irritating. You’ve gotta rap from the diaphragm.
Cheryl James
When I was a kid, I was into hardcore music. The scene in New York was tiny. Every person hanging out was in a band and played at the A7 Club. There was not much rehearsing or anything. Just doing.
Dito Montiel
When I was first started, when I was eighteen, I wrestled for a company that had a very hardcore fanbase and demanded a lot from its wrestlers. So, every single match, I would do every move possible.

Gene Luen Yang
I am a hardcore tech-savvy person.
Koena Mitra
In our world, 80 to 90 percent of women’s weight gain comes from overindulging in insulin-stimulating food. And it’s not hardcore, straight-up, I-can-see you-in-the-face sugar. They’re eating whole-wheat bread. They’re eating ancient grains. They’re eating black beans. That stuff is horrible.
Jorge Cruise
What is hardcore? Hardcore is not just being hardcore, hardcore is going in the ring and giving 100% of yourself. Hardcore is great fans.
Terry Funk
I’ve been Intercontinental Champion lots of times, Television Champion. One of my favorites has been the Hardcore Championship because it reflected my favorite style, and I feel that the X Division belt does that, too.
Rob Van Dam
Well, hardcore is so much about the body, in that you have to play as fast as possible. I’m not sure it can be ironized. You can’t play faster, though I suppose that with the help of electronics you could play faster. Yeah, if you sped it up, that could ironize it.
Stephin Merritt
You’ve got to block out all distractions when you train. Your focus has to be 100% into the rep. You’ve got to get into a zone. You know you’re in the zone when guys in the gym look you in the eye and then quickly turn away ’cause they see the fire. You’ve got to be all business.
Mike Matarazzo

Damian Marley
I made hardcore music and that came kind of easy – it was what I knew. But it was a challenge for me to make a big pop tune.
Dizzee Rascal
The fact of the matter is that I’m never going to be Dale Earnhardt Jr. or Chase Elliott. You’re not going to have that connection, the hardcore roots with the fans.

Walshy Fire
You have to live hardcore to be hardcore.
Liam Payne
I listen to all of my Dutch happy-hardcore songs from my raving techno days when I was about 14. It’s the most horrible music ever. I think it’s some kind of muscle memory that brings me back to when I was 14. It makes me bounce around the gym quite happily.
Lara Stone

I was born into hip hop and reggae, and then I started listening to more hardcore and punk bands like Bad Brains and the Suicidal Tendencies; they opened up a whole new world for me. They had something to say, and I could relate to them.
Sonny Sandoval
I’m still young and rom-coms suit me more than the hardcore action films which I did before.
There were some hardcore fans who thought I was ruining the band they loved. And now there’s this document, ‘The Doors Unhinged,’ which, hopefully, they’ll take away that I was trying to preserve the band they love and its legacy.
John Densmore
You only have to go hardcore humiliation on the first film. On the subsequent sequels, you can coast.
Jack Black
In Northern Estonia, the Soviet authorities didn’t have a recipe on how to fight against the popularity of Finnish TV. Audiences didn’t want to watch hardcore Soviet propaganda.

I’m the man with a box that can rock the crowd.

While my JVC vibrates the concrete.

Dylan Moran
I’m a hardcore libertarian – I want everything legal – but I also believe that you have the right to free association.
Penn Jillette
My first song was a hardcore knock-off of ‘Tangled Up in Blue.’ It was based on a story maybe I had heard before. I was 13. The woman died in the end – she was sleeping on the railroad tracks. Pretty edgy, ya know.
Tyler Childers
I was an athlete growing up. I did a lot of sports: soccer, basketball, so I was always so used to hardcore training, a lot of running. I got to a point where I felt like I just wanted to get toned; I didn’t need to shed pounds, so now I do Pilates.
Jacquelyn Jablonski
I’m among the hardcore fans of ‘Blade Runner.’ ‘Blade Runner’ is one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s a movie that is linked with my love and passion for cinema.
Denis Villeneuve
I’m quite curvy and I just try and exercise whenever I can. I don’t do anything hardcore as I’m just not that dedicated.
Leona Lewis
I loved Fugazi, the D.C. hardcore band, because they always did everything themselves. They had their own label, and the CDs always cost nine dollars, the T-shirts always cost eight dollars, the shows always cost five dollars, no major label.
Spike Jonze
We definitely have a hardcore following.
Phil Anselmo
You may have thousands of lives to go between now and before you’re a real hard-core seeker of enlightenment, hardcore meaning you just love it.
Frederick Lenz
Hardcore wrestling like CZW is just nonsense. There’s no story there. You’ve got guys jumping off of houses onto barb wired tables, and that’s it. They don’t know how to work. CZW is trash.

D. B. Weiss
We built up a hardcore following, but we were really still semipro, gigging over long weekends and the like. So after EMI signed us, we packed in the day jobs because we had to make an album.
Steve Harris
I believe in the opportunities for social gaming. It’s overlapping with mobile gaming and lots of video gaming, but it’s still different. It’s all getting more blurry as hardcore games and console games talk about being social.
Mark Pincus
If you make just hardcore horror, there’s a limited audience for that. Whereas if it’s horror mixed with action, I think you kinda broaden your potential fanbase.

In ECW, hardcore wrestling wasn’t done just for the fun of it. It was done for a purpose, for a reason. And for me, it was done to exist and produce a revenue for my family.
Terry Funk
When you say ‘revolution’ when you have only men outside, you know that something is going wrong. I’m not like a hardcore feminist, but I think that one of the things that makes the society advanced is equality between men and women. If half of the society is oppressed by the other half, it’s not fine.
Marjane Satrapi
I just think it’s shocking how many of these young people wind up in prison and they get turned into hardcore criminals because they had a possession of a very small amount of controlled substance.
Pat Robertson
That’s probably the key to our success and our longevity, sticking to our formula and what we do best, the hardcore Mobb Deep sound, rather than chasing trains. But we’re always experimenting with the art and the creativity of hip-hop.
Well, in Japan, I have got a group of musicians that I have worked with a lot, that concentrate just on the hardcore stuff, say, that Naked City has been working on. We have like a repertoire of sixty songs now.

It might surprise people to know that the person who convinced me to write the third memoir – ‘The Hardcore Diaries’ – was actually Vince McMahon.
Mick Foley
Much like Jennifer Lopez or Ricky Martin who might have started with a hardcore Latin fan-base, I’ll always remember what my foundation was.
Jay Sean
Unlike so many Dylan-writer-wannabes and phony ‘encyclopedia’ compilers, Sean Wilentz makes me feel he was in the room when he chronicles events that I participated in. Finally a breath of fresh words founded in hardcore, intelligent research.
Al Kooper
When I first started playing metal, lyrically, I sort of related a little bit more to the punk and hardcore scenes, where there was a lot more veganism and straight-edge people and people taking a stance for causes that they believe in.
Alissa White-Gluz
What I was really saying in ‘The Examined Life’ was that I was no longer as hardcore a libertarian as I had been before.
Robert Nozick

Hank Williams Jr.
I came to bring the pain hardcore from the brain
Method Man

Dominic Monaghan
On the DVD ‘Hardcore,’ half the material was about me growing up in Valley Stream.
Jim Breuer
In terms of content and instrumentation, I feel we have been extremely ambitious on every one of our albums going back to high school. We were the first screaming hardcore band to put a big ballad on our record.

I feel like it’s impossible to please the hardcore comic book fans, because they’ll never be happy no matter what you do.
Megan Fox
‘Twin Peaks’ fans, it’s a hardcore group of people.
Dana Ashbrook
Ice Cube is doing so great. He went from being this hardcore gangster rapper to this actor now. He’s doing children’s movies and all this stuff – he’s rocking it.
Darius Rucker
I don’t necessarily want kids. A lot of our friends are having children and I don’t know if it’s for me. I haven’t come down hardcore on either side of the argument. I think when people come from a stable family having children becomes a celebration and I’m not sure it would be that way for me.
Jon Hamm
I love rap, and I love the angst of hardcore music and punk rock.
Sonny Sandoval
You can be vegetarian and eat fish. It’s your choice, just say: ‘I am what I am.’ There are no hardcore divisions anymore.
Yotam Ottolenghi
We grew up listening to so much hardcore: everything from the very early D.C. stuff – Teen Idols, Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, SOA, Government Issue – to bands who weren’t straight edge, like Negative Approach. I really feel they were one of the greatest punk bands ever.
Davey Havok
It gets a little crazy at Disneyland. It’s a little bit more hardcore then people think.
Aja Naomi King
There’s a lot of guys in the league that make music and it’s hardcore gangsta rap. None of us really live that life and you can’t talk about being a thug.

I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds
Henry Rollins
I was raised by a hardcore feminist.
Joss Whedon
I don’t do this to be healthy, I do this to get big muscles.
Markus Ruhl
I was part of punk’s second generation, so, not the first wave of ’70s punk, but the American hardcore scene. I had a really strong love for music prior to that, but punk created a new template.
Bucky Pope
Ultimately, I wanted to own a big truck, exercise my second Amendment rights, listen to hardcore music, and let my congressman know how poorly he represents me. None of this could occur in France.
Mark Twight
I was a jock, hardcore sports all the way down the line, but I heard that if you auditioned for this arts school, you got time off school, and that sounded good to me.
Jake Epstein
Millennials, in particular, consider themselves to be spiritual, but they’re not necessarily going to anybody’s church. It’s not like the world is becoming hardcore, Richard Dawkins-atheist, but people are looking to sort of synthesize science – people love science, especially the millennials.
Adam Frank
I just think it’s shocking how many of these young people wind up in prison and they get turned into hardcore criminals because they had a possession of a very small amount of a controlled substance.
Pat Robertson
As a band, it’s just me trying to please my own basement-hardcore sensibilities that I grew up with. It’s not actually the future of anything, it’s totally nostalgia.
Geoff Rickly
In my teenage years I was as addicted to great pop as I was to free jazz, electronic music, and hardcore blues.
Scott Walker
One reason I’m such a wayward prognosticator of rightwing trends is that I’m incapable of blacking out enough neural sectors to see the world through reptilian-brained eyes, a prerequisite for any true channeling of the mean resentments and implanted fears that drive hardcore conservatives.
James Wolcott
I was built to be a fighter, to be a warrior just like Ronda Rousey was built to be a warrior and Bruce Jenner is getting back to being the hardcore person, the warrior that he is.
Fallon Fox
When you have hardcore fans of something like ‘Miranda,’ people can’t see you any other way than Gary Preston, which is fair enough.

Being a hardcore old-school comic book lover, it took me a while to accept the need for comic book movies.

Finding a way to find humor in things that are hardcore is definitely something that, I think, the sitcom does best.
Megyn Price
You know I’m a lady, but when you get me mad, I can be as hardcore as Sabu or Taz!
Dawn Marie Psaltis
If Mayweather wants to come over and fight in the UFC, then do it. It’s hardcore here, though. I don’t think it’ll be a stroll in the park. Granted, he’s the best boxer ever seen, just about.
Robert Whittaker
I would really like to do a straight action movie that’s hardcore – heavy action, like ‘The Expendables’ or ‘Fast Five.’
Tania Raymonde
I am a hardcore foodie, which means I love to eat. I was also born with cerebral palsy, which means I shake all the time – so cooking is not my thing, as I am banned from being around knives and fire. Those who cannot cook, watch, and I am obsessed with cooking shows.
Maysoon Zayid
I like to put on hardcore when I have to clean my apartment, which I hate to do, but it’s motivational. I like old heavy metal when I’m outside working on my car. Music has definite functions for me.
Peter Steele
Here in Ohio, the hardcore scene is a big thing, so some of our good friends are in hardcore bands. So we’ve had to figure out how the heck we get these people to respect us.
Tyler Joseph
Hardcore fans have a vision in their head, and if they look at your cosplay of it, you may not fit their vision.
Yaya Han
I wrote a short article called “Yardcore” for that issue, too, as an attempt to talk about the Jamaican influence on garage, grime and dubstep; as a splicing of soundsystem culture and hardcore.
People used the term “hardcore” loosely. A lot of bands use it as a jumping stone to the next level. Hardcore, it’s got a lot more to with then music. It’s a very passionate movement.
Roger Miret
There are a lot of hardcore ‘Napoleon’ fans, and they do the research and find photos of what I look like when I’m not ‘Kip-ified.’ Those fans recognize me. It happens maybe once a week, where someone will come up to me and be, like, ‘Dude, you’re Kip.’ And I’m, like, ‘Yeah, my name’s Aaron.’
Aaron Ruell
Nobody’s gonna ever like all my music but if your talking about the core hip-hop fans that like hardcore rap, they’re still gonna feel some of my stuff cuz I rap hard a lot of the time.
I idolized all of the bodybuilders who came from that old-school hardcore era. Those guys didn’t need any fancy equipment; they trained with intensity and focus, regardless of the gym or other limitations. These guys could do presses with pails full of cement and still get a great workout.
Mike Matarazzo
That’s one thing I learned from B.I.G. He was always heavy on versatility. I’m able to take an R&B record and rip it the same way I rip a regular freestyle or a hardcore beat, be able to put that same twang and seasoning on anything you do.
I am a hardcore VH1 lover and always have this dream of featuring in an English music video of VH1.
Nia Sharma
A lot of the hardcore fans wanna hear the deep cuts – songs like ‘Orion’ or maybe like a ‘Disposable Heroes’ – you know, songs that we don’t play all the time – and then, of course, they wanna hear ‘Sandman’ and ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and some of the hits.
Robert Trujillo
Honestly speaking, I am very hardcore when it comes to my music because at the end of the day the song that I am creating will remain forever.
Amaal Mallik
Both ‘iCarly’ and ‘Victorious’ fans are so hardcore and intense.
Jennette McCurdy
On the spectrum of imagination, there are people who are more imaginative than others – I guess some kids are hardcore pretenders and have imaginary friends for years and other kids play and they have fun, but it’s not quite as specific like that.
Bryce Dallas Howard
I’ve played death metal, punk rock, hardcore, funk… I’ve done it all. And all there really is music and at the end of the day, anybody who has a record and puts out a record that’s basically the same song 13 times over on one record; to me they’re just cheating the fans.
Cristian Machado
I think it’s good to have different styles, though. I think it’s good to have a lucha on a show, some Japanese flavor, I think MMA is a good thing, a little bit of the hardcore and the blood and guts is good. That is what makes a show for me.
CM Punk
When I was 16 I was in a neo hardcore band called Finger Charge. I played the drums with my shirt off.
The hardcore fans have hung with us because they go, ‘Hey, they don’t disappoint.’ And we stick to that style.
Angus Young
I love beats that are hardcore, dirty and raw.
I love takin niggas burners when they scared to draw.
I love plottin on my enemies, I love to attack.
I love beatin down niggas when they rhymes is wack!
Bumpy Knuckles
Professional wrestling in Europe is more of a sub-culture. It is not as popular as it is here in the United States. The people that were drawn to it were also people that were into sub-culture, hardcore sub-culture. It is basically an alternative scene that is sub-culture.
Aleister Black
I felt like when I got with Kanye, and we discussed me being on G.O.O.D. Music, he just really took me to a place in regards to music that I love and music that I had made previously. We had a clear understanding of what I wanted to make, and he just seemed like he was an advocate for hardcore, uncompromising hip-hop.
Pusha T
For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Crowds are always different, but I know I have hardcore fans who watch everything I do online, so I have to make sure every match is different.
Matt Riddle
I’m the first to admit that we were totally dependent on a particular place and time… for us, seeing Minor Threat at the CBGB hardcore matinee was just as necessary a force in our lives as the Treacherous Three at Club Negril or the Funky Four + One More at the Rock Lounge.
Mike D
When we first started, I didn’t know there was Christian rock or Christian music. I just thought we were a rock band that stuck to our convictions… Like every other hardcore band out there sang or screamed what they thought, we did the same thing.
Sonny Sandoval
Cecil Castellucci is writing Shade, who is the perfect writer for it. I love her young adult stuff, and it’s pretty hardcore and visceral, so I knew she was going to bring that to the book.
Gerard Way
For us, punk rock and even hardcore music was something we did because we didn’t fit in in high school. We had nowhere to go, so we went to shows.
Chad Gilbert
I’ve probably got the most loyal hardcore fans in the music business. You know, I can sit around, go fishing, do ten shows a year, fifteen, none, twenty, and it’s just fantastic. Because they know I shoot straight and I don’t talk bull.
Hank Williams, Jr.
Palak has its three to four signature moves. I cannot showcase just those on the ‘Jhalak’ stage since it’s a hardcore dance show. The tasks cannot be taken lightly. All the contestants are judged technically.
Kiku Sharda
NXT fans are hardcore wrestling fans.
Shinsuke Nakamura
Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.
Criss Jami
I don’t believe in prayer, I’m a pretty hardcore agnostic.
Simone Giertz
The hardcore fanbase of nerds that live on the Internet are not nearly as powerful as I thought they were. They really, really aren’t. They also flip-flop like mad.
Evan Goldberg
I listen to tons of hard rock and metal, like Iron Maiden, Motorhead, etc., but I also listen to Beethoven and Mozart, to Discharge and the Bad Brains, and to Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington. So I think there’s merit to both the melodic punk and to the hardcore stuff too.
Dave Smalley
I am a hardcore Bihari boy. I am born and brought up in Bihar, and for me, ethnicity is not a problem and is inbuilt in me.
R. Madhavan
On our first album, ‘Sounding the Seventh Trumpet,’ we were listening to more obscure heavy metal bands and hardcore bands.
Zacky Vengeance
You don’t need to stick to tough rules or overnight changes; you need not rely on hardcore discipline that makes you hate your life. You need only focus on progress, not perfection. Lean in to the process of losing weight, and it will happen easily.
Kathy Freston
For me, hardcore is simply unapologetic music, free of rules.
By that definition, we are a hardcore band.
Jacob Bannon
I’m a hardcore gamer and would never let you down by designing a crappy title.
John Romero
The older I get, the more determined I feel to do whatever I can to help release that human potential somehow. Not in a fluffy way nor in a hardcore way. But in that middle ground, that marriage of love and power. I’m not afraid of either.
Jacqueline Novogratz
On the road you can’t go hardcore with your workout and lifting and then play.
Jack Sock
I’ve got my hardcore fans, and I thank them so much for being there for me and not giving up on me.
Jeff Hardy
Florida is such an unlikely place for a band, unless you’re an emo or hardcore band. In terms of the touring route, or even the way the geography works in terms of bands and communities, Florida’s always been this appendage that you either cut it off and dismiss it, or you somehow include it in your scope.
Carrie Brownstein
I think when you’re writing anything you should never be thinking about hardcore genre fans.
Chris Chibnall
It is better to live in a world of poetic meaning rather than hardcore reality.
Mark Gonzales
The only people that recognize me are the hardcore fans, and I always find that really flattering. I think it is super cool.
Cassidy Freeman
The big thing is that we have five percent or less of the hardcore players actively entertaining the other ninety-five percent.
Will Wright
The more hardcore conservative you are, the more tightly identified you are with defending the interest of capital as an interest of the system based on hyper-competition, the more likely it is that you vehemently deny climate change. Because if climate change is real, your worldview will come crashing down around you.
Naomi Klein
I’m certainly no hardcore backpacker, but I do enjoy being out in the woods for a few hours.
Paul G. Tremblay
There weren’t a lot of career opportunities in crazy-fast hardcore punk, so you didn’t have a lot of ambition, just the love and passion to play music with your friends.
Dave Grohl
I’m a street footballer. I’m hardcore. Growing up in east London, you’ve got to be a little bit self-confident. As a player, I would go into detail, watch who I was playing against. Who might come into my vicinity. That gives you self-confidence.
Sol Campbell
After being a born-again punk rocker for about ten years, the whole thing started falling apart. American hardcore had become Californians in baggy shorts making jokes about being white trash, and British punk had morphed into dogmatic crusties yelling at everyone about everything.
Gavin McInnes
Yeah, the majority of Brit+Co users are women, but DIY? You see kids DIY, adult men geeking out hardcore with anything related to woodworking and all these cool new technologies, metalwork, leatherworking, concrete making. Everyone has a passion. I truly believe it’s in our DNA literally to build things.
Brit Morin
Just remember, somewhere, a little Chinese girl is warming up with your max.
Jim Conroy
My Flying Bus stage at Glastonbury is really special to me and a great hangout for the hardcore party people.
If you don’t have content, you don’t sell hardware. We need a suite of content of really fun, compelling experiences that aren’t just hardcore game-oriented, and when that’s good enough, it’ll be an easy decision to go to the consumer market.
Brendan Iribe
People are disillusioned with the BJP. Even their hardcore voters, like the traders and baniyas, are angry after demonetisation.
Lalu Prasad Yadav
The real is always presented. That hardcore record or movie is not needed in the hood, because it’s already there. You can see it with your own eyes.
Ice Cube
Take the hardcore gamers. The characters are way more real in the world of hardcore gamers who have played the game for hundreds of hours. They have the movie in their heads, they’ve built it on their own. These guys are always very disappointed in the movies.
Uwe Boll
Hardcore bands were coming out with names like Urban Waste and The Mob, you know, a lot of kind of tough names. So Beastie Boys was the stupidest name we could come up with. And unfortunately, it stuck.
As I see it, mainstream comics now speak only to the hardcore few who stayed; conversing in a weird, garbled, visual pig latin only they can understand – rendering the term ‘mainstream’ a hollow joke – while the true mainstream, the other 99.9% of the populace, find enjoyment elsewhere.
Scott McCloud
Rock and Roll has certainly tried to take its toll on me. I’d rather not talk about my past excesses here, although some hardcore rockers might argue that those excesses were responsible for some great records, but I know which side I came out on.
Tony Visconti
The last two days of shooting (‘Harper’s Island’) was probably the most hardcore, the coldest anyone has ever been. It was like your head was freezing, and my motivation for most scenes was, ‘The minute this scene is over, I’m heading straight over to that heater to get warm.’
Elaine Cassidy
We’ve always been hardcore rebels.
Rickey Medlocke
The really cool thing is that I’ve developed this hardcore fan base that came to me through my work in films, but they are super-willing to cross over and experiment.
Sid Sriram
Extreme rules, hardcore wrestling – whatever they want to call it – was born out of a necessity to survive.
Terry Funk
My interaction with my followers on social media has become a phenomenon, and that’s hardcore work every day! I have carpal tunnel from typing on my device.
John J. Legere
I’ve been in situations where, in the midst of really hardcore events in my life, I made some ridiculous off-color joke that was in horrible taste, but made people laugh.
Samuel Witwer
When I was 17, death metal and extreme hardcore was the best music in the world to me. But as I got older, my palette changed and my thirst for melody and emotion just got bigger and bigger.
Oliver Sykes
Mick Foley has gone from being a hardcore legend to a cuddly teddy bear.
I think I tried on the hardcore scene’s outfits maybe once, and then I just figured I’d stick to Hawaiian shirts.
Dave Sitek
I used to do boiler room telemarketing for a living, like hardcore fraud stuff that gets busted on 60 Minutes every week.
Doug Stanhope
Now you’re the Queen of Hardcore, but movies don’t count!
Chris Jericho
Undoubtedly, the biggest misconception about me is that I’m some staunch conservative, blind, rightwing hardcore Republican who doesn’t want to hear anything from the other side.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck
I’ve played a lot of bad guys over the years, a lot of hardcore guys. At the same time, I’ve done a lot of comedy.
Jonathan Banks
When ‘Destroyer’ was first released, we got a strong backlash from our hardcore fans. After six months, the album was dead in the water. The critics didn’t think much of it, either.
Peter Criss
‘Quantum Conundrum’ has a little bit of something for everybody – it’s got something for kids and it’s got enough of a challenge for a hardcore gamer.
Kim Swift
PiYo gives you hardcore definition, intense calorie burn, and allover strength—without weights, without jumps, and without destroying your body.
Chalene Johnson
I’ve been in rehabs with hardcore heroin addicts who say, ‘I’ve kicked the heroin, but I can’t let go of the tobacco.’ I haven’t smoked a cigarette in a long time. I like being clean now.
Ozzy Osbourne
I think when I was younger, I used to sort of long to be a part of films that were really gritty and hardcore in a way.
Toni Collette
Traditional songwriting, to us, is where the experimental nature comes in. We’re all involved with so much outside activity with really hardcore, experimental music-making.
Thurston Moore
The thing about the ‘Raw’ after Wrestlemania, the thing is they are the real hardcore, hardcore fans. It’s not your typical WWE audience.
When we first came out it was this happy accident, and I was sort of into hardcore at the time. Jordan our singer was really into Jawbreaker and a lot of indie rock bands and old Dischord bands, and sort of like more of the indie side of music. Our bass player was really into West Coast punk.
Chad Gilbert
Even within the context of the alternative scene I was a part of, within punk and hardcore and the alt scene, there was a focus on self-destruction.
Davey Havok
The critics and hardcore music fans, those are the people you have to get to first, so we’re really happy about it.
Craig Finn
Look! I can’t even wear glasses because my ear is missing. I’m hardcore! I’m hardcore!
Mick Foley
I was in a hardcore band that had no melody, no chance of finding any success, and I was just trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do with my life. And that came out and changed my life forever – on an artistic level, and a lyrical level, for sure.
Aaron Bruno
I completely love playing and designing games and always will. I am so into games that I listen to game music all day. That may sound strange, but you can guarantee I’m a hardcore gamer and would never let you down by designing a crappy title.
John Romero
We were always just a hardcore band that came out and said what we believed in, but we also talked about the streets and the stuff that we were into and the struggles and everything we were going through. Once people found out we were Christian, it was always, ‘Is that Christian music?’
