"We're here to tell you, you'd better make way
we're queer rockers in your face today!
we don't relate with Judy Garland
it's a new generation of music calling."
- "Anthem", Pansy DivisionQueercore is a sub-genre overlapping Punk Rock and Post-Punk originating in The '80s which focuses on LGBT themes, especially sex and romance among homosexuals, cultural values, and intolerance towards LGBTI persons. While not all punk or post-punk bands that work with such themes consider themselves 'queercore', there have been several bands that have taken that moniker willingly. There is a strong overlap with the Riot Grrrl, AnarchoPunk, and Hardcore Punk subcultures. Notable Queercore bands include:
- Cypher In The Snow
- Fifth Column
- Imperial Teen (both men in the band, including Faith No More's Roddy Bottum, are gay and one of the women played in LGBT-themed Sister Double Happiness)
- Pansy Division
- Team Dresch
- Three Dollar Bill
- Vaginal Davis
