I for one don't want hardcore going mainstream and commercial!

:P.

Yea I live in the US, and about... NO ONE knows what hardcore is. It would be nice if I could one day walk into Best Buy, and see a bonkers or hardcore nation CD in the slowly growing electronic section. I am fortunate to live in California, where Hardcore is SLOWLY starting to become known, and played in raves and such. All in all, hardcore getting some attention can't kill it.

Very fortunate ;)
I think our area is one of the best places to be in the US for a hardcore head, with hardcore events going down almost every weekend. Just last Saturday Fracus stopped by and layed down a killer set along side Oli-G.

Anyway I am happy for any exposure, for someone like me who expected to NEVER see my music in the mainstream let alone a tv commercial... I am excited to say the least.

Not to get too off topic, but if it wouldn't be a huge hassle, could you PM me with some info on how to find some of these (hardcore) raves in CA? I notice a few popping up on the event section, but other than that, I can't find any :'(

Milo: Your just mad because the king is going out with your mom :p Seriosuly, I agree, tell them to nix it plix.

The only thing i dont like is the fact they giving away the track to little kids. One of the toys is an actual cd of the tracks. So now, we are going to have little kids jamming out to Hardcore music.

'a little exposure can't kill it'

On the contary, I hope it does.

Then that way, we will start to see some top notch hardcore being produced like back in 2001/2002 when the scene was in the mire and only just beginning to resurface again.

Granted, there are some quality choons coming out these days, but because of labels like Raverbaby cutting the biggest chunk of the pie out for themself, (which reeks of 'pull the ladder up jack and sod the rest') small labels, which can be seen with RFU, are being stifled and are barely able to break even. The smaller labels you will actually find usually showcase the best talent & the best choons, not always, but more often than not.

I'd like to see a return to when labels like Raw Elements, Hectech & Phase 4 (now sadly defunct) & Elation were able to release top notch hardcore, that pisses on anything I've heard on Raverbaby.

So yeah, big rant, and I doubt many of you will agree with me, but **** it this is how I feel.

^^^ The track was made for a Konami DDR game not Burger King, it just so happens Burger King liked that track and wanted to use it for their commercial. I don't think Burger King choose the track because it was hardcore, just worked out that way :)

I can see where you're coming from.

Silver, you're more than correct there. Unless, the person who owns Burger King is a raver? Hehe!
