The Top Ten

1 Earth Crisis Earth Crisis

Destroy the Machines is a Hardcore classic! A band that doesn't get a lot of recognition but definitely should. This band is probably my personal favorite out of all the bands on this list which is why I put them at number 1. - cjWriter1997

2 Gorilla Biscuits Gorilla Biscuits Gorilla Biscuits is a New York-based hardcore punk band originally formed in 1987. The band currently consists of Anthony Civarelli, Walter Schreifels, Arthur Smilios, Alex Brown and Luke Abbey, and is signed to Revelation Records.

Only around in the late 80s but these guys were incredible! They have released 2 albums and both are pretty great hardcore punk records. - cjWriter1997

3 Cro-Mags Cro-Mags

They also can be considered Crossover Thrash as well. These guys have a pretty big cult following and their honestly one of the best hardcore bands in existence - cjWriter1997

4 Infest Infest

Pioneers of Powerviolence and an incredibly underappreciated band. Please note that most of their stuff is not on many streaming services. They have some albums on YouTube. No Man's Slave and their self-titled. - cjWriter1997

5 Uniform Choice Uniform Choice

Screaming for Change is insanely good hardcore punk album that doesn't get a whole lot of attention. - cjWriter1997

6 DYS DYS

Pretty underrated when it comes to recognition for hardcore music. They veered into Heavy Metal later in their career as well - cjWriter1997

7 Sick of It All Sick of It All

They also as well can be considered Crossover Thrash in some cases. They have a pretty good set of albums to choose from. I'd say start with Scratch the Surface - cjWriter1997

8 Throwdown Throwdown

Beyond Repair is an awesome Metalcore album. These guys would later go in a more groove metal direction in the mid 2000s. - cjWriter1997

9 Heaven Shall Burn Heaven Shall Burn

These guys are pretty sick, I would definitely recommend them. - cjWriter1997

Only one album, "The One Thing That Still Holds True" and it's worth checking out if your want some underrated hardcore stuff - cjWriter1997

The Contenders

11 Youth of Today Youth of Today
