On this week’s Out Loud, Kelefa Sanneh joins David Haglund, the literary editor of newyorker.com, and Sarah Larson, a cultural reporter for the Web site, to discuss hardcore music and its history. Sanneh, who wrote about how the movement conquered New York for the magazine this week, says that hardcore started out as “both an elaboration and intensification of what punk rock was trying to do, and also kind of a refutation of it.” Sanneh, Haglund, and Larson discuss the ambiguous politics of the hardcore scene, listen to songs by bands such as Bad Brains and Agnostic Front, and trace how hardcore later fused with metal, hip-hop, and other genres. New York hardcore, Sanneh says, is a “genre that at birth seemed like a dead end, and then has turned out to have this really interesting afterlife.”
