Hardcore isn't metal, by hardcore I believe you mean the genre (often confused with metal) not a hardcore fan, in the sense of the word, like a hardcore sports fan. I think you understand where I made that mistake.
mattsmith meant "hardcore" as in 100% or nothing... More or less why the Genre's called hardcore.
And you're right, it isn't metal, it's punk but there is hardcore metal which is crossover.
