> I don't think that anyone from within the rave scene has ever used the term "breakbeat hardcore"; the Wikipedia article for the genre is totally devoid of references.

Really? I've seen that term used for quite a long time, since the late 90s at least. Sometimes I see the variations "hardcore rave", "UK rave", "oldschool UK hardcore".

I don't know if folks in the early UK rave scene actually called it "breakbeat hardcore" in the early 90s, but it's a relatively common term for that genre in my experience. Granted, it's been 25 years since the genre was regularly encountered, so it's more of a historical/throwback thing at this point :)
