The skatercore aesthetic or “tomboy” style is described as a subculture of punk rock music (e.g. Avril Lavigne’s Sk8ter Boi). Originally a genre of hardcore punk closely associated with skate culture, skate punk changed into a more melodic genre of punk rock in the 1990s.

Bruh u r so dumb why would an 18 yr old get on this site? I think she has more self-respect than that. honestly, she's prob too busy to do anything else cuz she's so self-absorbed and doesn't care about any1 else. Even if it was her she is prob to concerned about her pride to respond to some1 like u. OK. Got it?

aliencore: a subgenre/conglomeration of the 80score aes, vaporwave, and spacecore, with a focus on being weird or out of the ordinary. often used with a sciencey aesthetic and even conspiracy theories.
i have no other "core" name for this but i call it y2k-core: centered around the glam and glitter "baddie" scene of early 2000s pop culture, with a more mature theme. often grouped with slutcore and other self-confidence movements by women for women involving being confident in ones sexuality and beauty.

Hi!! Im so sorry about the attack helicopter part of my comment! I made this at a time when i was just learning about being gender inclusive and i actually thought it was somehow nice to non-binary people but i do recognize that it isn't and i take full responsibility for my comment and I'm very sorry. Since it counts as hate i would appreciate it if it got reported and removed. I'm MUCH more educated bow and Ive actually become ad advocate! And to adress the schoolgirl part of my comment, I just didnt know at the time💀 I'm kinda sheltered...
