Why modern music is terrible.

2 years, 4 months ago

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…

the solution?
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.

Music is music and it’s highly subjective.

I listen mainly to rock n roll and I’m… a big fucking prick. I don’t think music is relevant.

The music is not all bad. I enjoy it once in a while although I only hear it when I’m out in public places. I like the direction club-pop has been taking ever since dubstep has been influencing it.
There are also some good artists who are mainstream although they don’t dare write anything beyond mainstream appeal. Kanye West and Lil Wayne for instance are not bad at rapping at all, quite creative really, and they have nice beats and high production quality but their music is still atrocious when they be all talking about popping some champagne on an airplane after winning a championship game.

@danfontaine,

they all have talent, i just feel like pop music is used in a negative fashion.

i do not like rap, but lil wayne is my favorite rapper just because of the vivid pictures and the way with words, but his type of music, i feel, is to obscene to be blasting but better to listen to privately.

im just a huge fan of guitars and i do not want to see them disappear. i like that good ol electric guitar and amp and no fancy other stuff.

Who’s to say what modern music is anymore? I mean, if you want to really go back to musics natural roots you’ll take away all electronic types of instruments. The oldest instruments found are over 40,000 years old and are flutes made out of bird bone and ivory. Go start a band full of guys who play flutes made out of bird bone and ivory.

Things change over time and music is no exception. It will continuously become more and more estranged from the idea of a real band, I think.

Maybe one day computers will be programmed to just make music for us. If this were to happen, I can say two things — either it could be great because of mathematics and ultimate savant like orchestrating OR it could just cater to likes of popular simple chords and melody type of popular music…which would be drone like.

I sort of went in a different direction there.

@spaceman5150,

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. :)

@spaceman5150, I don’t think I can know really what takes skill or not, and I do agree I think it would’ve been cool to live in the heyday of bands like the Beatles, the Stones, Zeppelin, Floyd, the Who, and so on, or the grunge era, like being able to go see Nirvana or the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup. But don’t think that rock has disappeared, not by a long shot. A lot of bands from earlier are still around, and there are new bands forming all the time. Just this summer I saw two awesome bands that keep the ’60s psychedelic sound alive, but are both relatively new. So fear not, my fellow rock fan! Just look a little harder….Last.fm helps with that, or just browsing YouTube randomly.

Also, simply if you don’t like something, don’t listen to it, don’t buy their stuff and don’t go to their shows. If you do like something, by all means get into it. And you’re right, there was always music of this sort around, it’s just that cultural norms have changed. If it isn’t Lil’ Wayne, then it was disco. Either way…..filter out what you don’t like, and let in what you do.

PAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t even feel like elaborating. Every music thread on this forum pushes me further into a sasho/manimal character.

Btw, disco is the basis for house, which gradually became all electronic genres including your precious dubstep, so I wouldn’t mock it.

@spaceman5150, Funny you should say that. A lot of parents back in the 60’s were saying the same thing about a band kids back then were listening to. My history’s a little hazy, I think they were called The Rolling Stones or something like that…

Anyway, yeah, that music turned girls into whores and guys into pricks too.

@spaceman5150, Think about when all the “soul” in music came about in the 60s and 70s. It was humanities last cry for love and truth. We’re finally in the end times so I wouldn’t worry too much about Bieber and such tainting society.

Oh yeah, and the Beatles were denied several record label contracts because they were told that guitars and four piece bands were a passing phase in the early sixties :/
