Default East Coast Vs. West Coast

ok this is the deal. im from philadelphia and i've been to plenty of shows from punk, hardcore, and ska. we throwdown hard. now over the past 2 years i moved to washington because of my job. i went to a couple hardcore shows in seattle and it was very dissappointing. i tried to throwdown and this security dude stopped me. and then i eventually ended getting kicked. even the punk scene is lame, there are more fashion scene punks than there are actual cool punk. supposedly its all about what you look like than how think that makes you punk rock or hardcore. so what do you think?

No, you didn't...I'm an east coast guy, and been going to shows since the early 80's...we do things faster and harder out here. I've travelled allover the country, living in many places for years. There is no contest between the east and west. There are some great bands that have come from the west coast, but the crowds are entirely different. I think the west coast has a passive aggressive vibe, that's actually quite irritating...this is why I moved back east. I have to admit the south hasn't got much going either, I was in GA for awhile, and the crowds there were similair to those of CA and WA. Of course, the kids today, simply don't know what a pit is supposed to be like these days, ever since the mainstream acceptance of "punk" occured, we started seeing the "jocks" and so forth coming in...and they missed the point entirely.

west coast caught on late but added their ferocity that the east coast lacked to a degree

The West Coast had bands from LA that never really got props. Weirdos, Germs, Screamers, from the class of 1977 - East coast started it all with the ramones

If we're talking Hardcore Punk, West coast is where it all started in L.A. They needed something faster and harder than the 70's sounds of bands like The Ramones or The Sex Pistols, so they began doing it a lot faster, and much heavier. Eventually they coined the term "Hardcore" to describe it all. Then the sound moved out to D.C. and the East coast, then spread throughout the Midwest and Texas, and finally New York decided to join in a little late in the game.
