Why modern music is terrible.
I am a strong believer that todays pop music is absolute garbage and turns girls into whores and guys into pricks. If you have not noticed yet, all the music sounds the same. the one two three four bass beat the autotune voices that hide the fake talent, obscene lyrics that make no sense , and the fact that these people do not even write their own songs is just disgusting.
so flash back… everybody hated disco music….. the music now is just disturbing offending disco…
rock and roll, metal, any thing that will bring real bands back into play. forget all the synthesizer shit, bring back the guitar a singer a bassist and a drummer and music will be restored and happy. modern music makes people lazy because its all computer generated and takes absolutely no skill at all.
It is time to stop being lazy and get up learn how to play an instrument. Use the talents you have and bring back talent to music.

As a hardcore music nerd who listens to nearly everything from classical to hardcore, this sort of ignorance really sets me off.
First of all, radio music has always been garbage, son. Always. This is not a new phenomenon.
Instrumentation doesn’t make the music “real” or “fake.” A synthesizer takes just as much talent to play *well* as a guitar, a piano, or a cello. Hell, I doubt you could even turn a synthesizer on. What really makes music legit is the passion, soul, and authenticity put into it by the artist. It’s that simple.
Fact is, every generation has terrible music that was stupid popular when it first came out. You just don’t hear about it anymore because it was weened out of the good music. (Which will hopefully happen again.)
Someone once told me that if you think all of today’s music is bad, you’re listening to the wrong music. I thought about it for a while, and couldn’t agree more. Thousands of bands come up with great music but unfortunately not all of it is mainstream. My solution– pandora. :)
I used to think dubstep was absolutely terrible and that they all took their beats from blenders full of bb’s and shit, but then I heard some of the good stuff, then it led me to Lindsey Stirling. She blends Classical and dubstep (two things that you would think would go terrible together) and made something fantastic.
Moral of the story: Not all of it is bad, just the mainstream is. For now, you’ll just have to dig for the good stuff. :)
All music, like all people, has soul. What are you talking about when you state that you dislike a type of music or artist? Your talking about YOURSELF.
“Stop hitting yourself” the angel said, but he could not, for the angel was hitting him with his own hand.
I love the music scene today because it’s so diverse. It’s an age where independent bands don’t need to become subservient mouthpieces for record companies because of all the technology available. You can get your name out yourself, and I know we all think of Myspace etc. as sites for pre-teen self-identifying emo kids but it’s truly an amazing thing that there are so many websites and opportunities to find music and release it. And every genre has split into a web of subgenres so there are infinitely more options than just listening to whatever the radio offers.
There’s always going to be bad music and there’s always going to be commercial stuff that idealizes certain traits in guys and girls but never before has it been so easy to find alternatives. I’m super into noise rock and post-rock so if you are too, give these a try:
DON’T YOU DARE say bad stuff about DISCO…
Disco is the best funkiest shit ever, always was, always will be.
Yeah this shit on the radio is pretty damn ear killing, but it fills its purpose and that’s what matters. It’s not supposed to be good music, it’s supposed to appeal to the dumbasses. Literally. And as long as they succeed with that it’s a great success for them.
The shit most people call metal or rock today isn’t really metal or rock at all. And a lot of it IS computer generated, and written by some songwriter rather than the band.
But here’s the thing….
YOU DON’T LIKE, YOU DON’T LISTEN.
Simple as that.
Music is an ancient form of magic. Today’s music uses repetitive sounds in frequencies meant to control the human brain. The messages delivered are all about consumerism, drinking, and promiscuous sex. All of these things fill people with desire which leads them into a life of subversion.
Think of where the messages are coming from and this all makes sense. Corporations own the record labels, radio stations, and the performers. It is intended to make slaves of people and nothing more. Look at our culture and see that it seems to be working very well…
@deepwithin, The input is registered, yes, but what you do with it is up to you and nobody else. You are not affected automatically, it is a choice.
If someone tells you to eat shit, that doesn’t make you eat shit does it?
You don’t even need meditation for this shit. It’s such a tiny non-issue.
People just want a scapegoat, so they can keep being weak, dumb and irresponsible.
To blame = To B Lame
Btw this is one of the most cliche arguments in the world. Generalizations are silly. You can’t possibly make an accurate sweeping statement about something as diverse and varied as music. You can’t even do that about one genre, and you’re trying to do that to an entire ERA of music? hahaha
I think you’re forgetting about the skill and knowledge of sound it actually takes to produce these things. There is no shortage of new artists in almost any genre, so why hate on modern music? The best thing to do is when you hear a song you don’t like is to just turn it off. Music is music, even if I don’t like the genre.
@closetofmysteries, Dude, there’s no frequency that can control a brain. The frequency distribution in different songs is also very different.
Even if there were certain frequency combinations that could produce such results, there wouldn’t be any room for such engineering in pop music due to the loudness wars. The loudness wars is also one of the main reasons why everything sounds so samey.
It’s all in the lyrics. And even so, if you let such rubbish influence you, that’s on you.
The vast majority of people are stupid, indulgent and submissive, that’s the way it’s always been. You don’t need mind control to enforce that, because people do it on their own.
People with slave mentalities develop slave lifestyles, no matter what people sing about.
Blaming is a perfect example of the slave mentality at play. Blaming music, yeah if someone wants you to be a slave they’d encourage you to blame the music. That’s what gives them power.
Your musical knowledge clearly is very limited. There is a lot of fucking awesome music out there, you just have to put effort in finding it.
I agree though that what you hear on the pop radio stations and music that is called ‘pop’ music nowadays, is not really creative, only made for commercial purposes.
But yeah, everybody his own taste right? I got a shitload of music that will give you goosebumps and let every cell of your body jump around like house of pain intended you to by their nr1 hit.
