Well this exploded all over the internet yesterday didn’t it? I’ve joked about hardcore and how stupid it is on Sick Chirpse multiple times before, but you’ve got to admit that there’s nothing better than a good hardcore parody that actually pulls it off and doesn’t just end up looking as pathetic as hardcore itself actually is. Which is probably harder than it sounds, although Straight Edge Derek can probably prove me wrong about that.
Anyway, this was described as ‘the most relevant hardcore song of the last ten years’ by Gawker which I would be inclined to agree with had it not been for the masterpiece that was Lego, Let’s Go released last year, but this is a close second. Basically, ‘My First Hardcore Song’ is a one minute song from Australia by some pissed off 8 year old called Juliet who sings/shouts about how she likes her fishes and her dog called Robert and then proceeds to open up the pit and beat down. It’s pretty much the perfect hardcore song, but with that added cuteness you just don’t get in the genre now that um, Walls of Jericho (?) aren’t around anymore.
Much like with Refused did with The Shape of Punk to Come 15 years ago, it looks set to change the future of hardcore if the number of people I’m friends with on Facebook in shitty hardcore bands who have shared this today is any indication of how popular it’s set to become. I guess Gawker were probably right about it becoming the most relevant hardcore song of the last ten years.
Although maybe my ‘friends’ are trying to be ironic? But surely there’s no such thing as irony in hardcore? I’m confused so just check it out below and have a laugh. Or maybe cover it at your shitty hardcore band’s next show in the back room of some crappy boozer in Wisbech. Up to you.
