    I'd interpret it as an invitation to behave wildly and badly.

    I clicked on the link.

    Not what I think of when one says "hardcore".

    The 80s were innocent times!

    By the way, I'm aware of the irony of decrying Ke$ha's language ability in one post and then posting a song that uses "party" as a verb in the next.

    I don't care, I'm hardcore like that.

    Yes, using party as a verb is hardcore.... in 1921.

    The verb is first attested 1922, from the noun.

    Thank you Mr. Ben!
    Loved this song as a kid and LOL at this post.
    Never noticed before what MCA is hitting himself in the head with! It's so stupid it's funny (in my opinion of course). The Beastie Boys have come a long way.

    Soda and Pie, slang can be a lot of fun!

    Not a teacher, just hardcore
