Ya, I am going to call bull shit if NOFX is bro-core. Throwdown is bro-core. Acacia Strain is bro-core. Your mom is bro-core.

I am pretty sure Creed, Nickelback, and Staind are more bro-core than any of those bands.

someone really needs to define what "bro" means, whenever it is used it doesnt make sense, and really, these negative words(emo, bro) being used are basically just racial slurs for genres. that's how i feel anyways

I've never heard that phrase for this type of music but I can see how it applies. Good article.
