Foxcore is a 1990s rock music genre of bands featuring female singers. According to Joanne Gottlieb and Gayle Wald, the term was coined as a joke by Thurston Moore during the early 1990s to describe a wave of loud and aggressive female fronted bands that was occurring at the time. Failing to understand Moore's humorous intent, and confusing it with the Riot Grrrl and movement of that era, the media picked up on the term.[1][2]
