Then in 1995, after the greatly successful releases of the single 'Common People' and album ''Different Class'', as well as a performance at the Glastonbury festival, Pulp achieved full penetration. Though they never quite eclipsed the ever-feuding Music/{{Blur}} and Music/{{Oasis}} in commercial popularity, they received heaps of critical adoration, most of it focusing on Jarvis' wry and witty lyrics. However, the morning after was not nearly so enjoyable for Jarvis. The backlash from his stage invasion during Music/MichaelJackson's performance at the 1996 Brit Awards resulted in a night in jail and [[NeverLiveitDown much attention of the wrong kind.]] [[note]] Though when you actually [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgG-XJgmXdU watch the performance]] it's not hard to [[{{Narcissist}} see]] [[ItsAllAboutMe why]] [[VanityProject he]] invaded the stage. [[/note]] This, combined with the pressures of fame, [[CreatorBreakdown resulted in his descent into a dark place]]. The followup album that Pulp were trying to piece together ended up taking more than a year to record and when it was finished, ''This is Hardcore'' sounded [[DarkerAndEdgier very different indeed]].

* ''This is Is Hardcore'' (1998)



** Within the albums that the non-hardcore fans have heard of, ''This is Hardcore'' so, so much - it's basically Jarvis' musical midlife crisis. But it could also be seen as something of a return to form as their 80s albums were very brooding.

* EpicRocking - "David's Last Summer", "The Day After The Revolution" ([[NoExportForYou except on the U.S. release]]), "Seductive Barry", "Wickerman", "This Is Hardcore".
** Although the U.K. version of "The Day After The Revolution" is really five minutes of a real song and ten minutes of white noise, which hardly constitutes as rocking.

* CreatorBreakdown - Jarvis, after ''Different Class''. ''This is Hardcore'' is the result.



* PromotedFanboy:
** Mark Webber was the president of the band's fan club before becoming their guitarist in 1995.
** Jarvis was a big fan of Music/ScottWalker before Scott produced ''We Love Life''. The two are now good friends.



** "Wickerman" from ''We Love Life'' is an entire song of this trope; Jarvis literally just speaks over background music for nearly eight minutes.
