damn i just came up with this conclusion today, the popular music now sucks! lol i noticed, hip hop and rappin stuff yeah? they play it in clubs, but it seems to appear that these types of music realllyy suck because people in the clubs are having to take drugs to enjoy themselves lol, to get things goin, coz the "music" they are playing, really sucks!
i know all the woodstock stuff, weed etc, but thats like just mild compared to the stronger extacy that the people in these clubs have to take to stop them from being bored!

whilst if you go to a iron maiden concert or whatnot, the music gets the people going, yes there are some stoners in the crowd, but most of them actually like the music and that gives them energy to rock out, they dont need drugs to enjoy themselves, they go to these concerts coz the musics good and all, not because "its cool" (well maybe for some scene kids that the reason)

so my conclusion is that im bored thats why im ranting about this
but also that people (like those people, you understand) are stupid, they clearly dont like that squiggle of noise but they carry on listening to it, torturing their little brains mad.gif i wish good music was in the "scene" sad.gif

Unfortunatly that's the UK for you. I agree how can rap be music? There's hardly any music in it is there? That's one of the reasons i like metal is that not only does it sound good but it takes a lot of skill as well. Club music sucks, i've never been to a club before but i've heard plenty of what they play there and its enough to put me off completely.

The majority of pop music sucks, but the people listen it, cuz it's simple xD they dont have To deduce anything.
and the metal, the rock, de hard rock, etc. are too complex, and that's what we love!! xD biggrin.gif cool.gif

Sorry for my bad english unsure.gif

Another big complaint I have is there just doesn't seem to be any guitarists in "popular" music anymore. It seems like the lead guitar has faded out.

Well you know, people can "hate" pop or rap or whatever...but sometimes its better to just accept that it keeps some people happy, and that because we are mature musicians we know where the real good music is? wink.gif smile.gif

I have a feeling all the rappers in the US arent to big over in Norway, Finland, Sweden, Germany, or Japan tongue.gif Popular music varies where you go, I mean hell, Dream Evil are virtually unknown in the US, but in Japan....They LOVE them.

It all depends on location.

I just meant that rap in general is big pretty much everywhere. Of course not in like the Himalayas or Antarctica or anything like that, but rap is hugely popular in all of North and South America and most of Europe. I have no idea what they listen to in Asia or the middle East though tongue.gif

lol yeah but it needs to be reminded that rap isnt music, its talking fast, like my gf, she is a great rapper, can never win a arguement.

im not rap bashing, im bashing bad music, not targeting rap! infact rapping is probably one of my favourite form of vocals in a band, i like it when funk bands have a lead vocals person who raps sometimes, like chilis, but anthony can sing as well and write good lyrics with a inner meaning such as "Space may be the final frontier But it's made in a Hollywood basement" etc. i just dont like 50 cent making money from having someone who knows two chords on the keyboard in the back repeating the same damn thing and have half a drummer repeating the same damn thing and have his friends goin "yeah!" once in a while... although i do have a secret favour for ludacris there are some pretty good stuff in there tongue.gif

As much as I am a total metalhead, one could feasibly argue that all metal is just demonic trash with no talent and animal noise vocals - now all of you here know its a little more refined than that:- thats mainstream opinion, truth is that your perception of other genres of music is pretty much what media outlets tell you, unless you yourselves happen to delve deeper and make investigations of your own.

I remember when I first listened to metal, I hated it, but with generally exposure to anything you can get used to it and even come to really enjoy it - you find your niché in a particular area.

Make no mistake, even if you dont think a record is good theres generally always a LOT of talent coming from somewhere inputted into it, most people here could not produce something as good as your average rap or dance record even if they had the kit to do so.

This is true for death metal, or sreamo. I personally hate it, but
some people like trash and others like other trash.

Does this make sense to u?
