First there was punk, then there was hardcore punk, then there was post hardcore punk (among lots of other variations). Post hardcore generally covers a broad spectrum of groups emerging from the hardcore punk scene or taking inspiration from it, but trying to change it around a bit (everyone like to be individual don’t they)?

It generally emerged during the mid to late 1980’s in the Midwestern US.
