The style is, naturally, underground, underground (and is known for having a particularly strong DIY component; house shows are a genre staple, and it's not uncommon to see multiple living rooms and basements on a list of tour dates), though some bands have gained some mainstream recognition.

* Eaten



* Meth Leppard



* Swarrrrm



* DoingItForTheArt: Even by punk standards. Unless you're Napalm Death, you ''cannot'' make a living playing grindcore and will almost definitely lose a lot of money by doing it. This is part of the reason why there is such a strong DIY culture in grindcore: it's a hell of a lot cheaper to play someone's basement, living room, or rented art space while on tour, and it usually also means a warm place to sleep and potentially even an actual bed (instead of just a couch or a sleeping bag on someone's living room floor).



* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Quite a few bands don't have bassists, and guitarists running through both a guitar and a bass rig in lieu of a bassist is a fairly common setup in the genre. At the same time, bass is surprisingly important to a lot of bands; the "grindcore tone" (usually accomplished via scooped lows, distortion and fuzz pedals, and an extremely aggressive pick attack on heavily downtuned strings) is a genre hallmark, and most people who are even passingly familiar with the genre will be able to pick it out right away.

* {{Gorn}}: Goregrind lyrics, though some bands (namely Carcass and Exhumed) use them as metaphors for sociopolitical and metaphysical themes.

* MinisculeRocking: Very, very common, to the point that it's more or less a defining characteristic of the genre.

* PurpleProse: Not very often, but some grindcore bands have a reputation for very poetic, complex lyrics, most notably Pig Destroyer and Cloud Rat.

* Deathgrind: grindcore that's less compressed, making it easier to understand what's going on with all the instruments. Some bands combine grind with the aforementioned brutal death metal. Think of the later [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvBo4KV7MoA Napalm Death]]. Alternatively, some bands such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0OYZujVu_k Cephalic Carnage]] play more with the musical complexity common to death metal but do it at the intense speeds of grindcore; this can often sound like death metal with far too many notes, or grindcore that's far too long and complex. Brutal Truth and Rotten Sound are the best examples of the genre.

There is also some overlap with deathcore, as numerous early bands in the latter genre took heavy influence from deathgrind. Brutal Truth and Rotten Sound are the best examples of the genre.

* Mathgrind: grindcore mixed with elements of mathcore, free jazz, and (occasionally) modern classical. Needless to say, it's frantic, noisy, extremely discordant, and requires no small amount of technical ability. Also known as "art school" or "hipster" grind, and as you can guess, views on it are mixed. There is also some overlap with cybergrind at times (The Locust being a good example) as well as screamo (where it is often known as "emoviolence"). Discordance Axis and Human Remains are the most famous examples.

* Noisegrind: the aforementioned mess of noise and screams. Think Anal Cunt. Noisegrind is an offensive subgenre, relying on shock value, whether in its "music" (some bands just improvise ''all'' the songs) or its lyrical content. Anal Cunt and Gore Beyond Necropsy are the best examples.

* Cybergrind: the electronic side of grind. Basically a mixture of hardcore techno and grind. Think of Carcass playing in a rave party, you'll pretty much understand cybergrind. Usually revolves around grindcore (or goregrind) played over techno beats with added samples and electronic sounds; noise and breakcore are also common influences, and remix EPs and compilations are a staple of the genre. Almost always uses a drum machine (with the one notable exception of The Berzerker). Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Genghis Tron are probably the most well-known bands in the genre.
