Well! I learned that Crunkcore (also called crunk punk and scrunk) is a musical genre that combines elements of screamo with elements of crunk.

So then I had to look up both screamo and crunk because I didn't really know what those were either.

Screamo: a genre of music which predominantly evolved from hardcore punk, among other genres, in the early 1990s. The term "screamo" was initially applied to a more aggressive offshoot of emo that developed in San Diego in 1991, which used short songs which grafted "spastic intensity to willfully experimental dissonance and dynamics."

Crunk: a fusion genre of hip hop music and electro that originated alongside the concept of crunk, a portmanteau meaning "crazy drunk'. Crunk originated in Memphis, in the United States. It became popular in the mid to late 1990s and gained mainstream success around 2003 - 2004. Performers of crunk music are sometimes referred to as crunksters.

An archetypal crunk track most frequently uses a drum machine rhythm, heavy bassline, shouting vocals, often in call and response manner.

The term crunk is often mistakenly used as a blanket term to denote any style of southern hip hop, a side effect of the genres' breakthrough to the mainstream.
