This thread is basically you posting your opinions on music you have and you don't expect others to agree with you on. Like so...
 
Drake sucks.
Yeezus will be the one of the best acclaimed albums of this generation in the next couple of years.
Childish Gambino is gonna blow the f*ck up.
 
Can be all genres, alright, go for it...

EDIT: No arguments if you can handle yourself. Learn to respect everyone's opinion.

This topic is doomed.. but I'll say Kanye West is the most overrated, self-indulgent producer to in the history of recording music and I'm not having a go because it's your avatar, I was planning to write that before I clicked the topic.

True R&B (the R&B I grew up listening to during the 60s & 70s) is dead. What we have today is rhythmless bull****.

 

Disco gets a bad rap from r&r guys, but I love it. I was a teenager during its heyday, and the music brings back fond memories. I'm not talking that Rick Dees crap...there was some good music made,

I do not see any appeal to Nirvana at all. I REALLY tried getting into them but failed.

I don't think Frans Bauer is awful.

 

I think hardcore is the worst genre out there.

 

I still find Gangnam Style amusing.

 

Slug (from Atmosphere) writes the best lyrics.

 

I know most of my music through games.

Can I ask, what the heck is hardcore? I mean, I know hardcore dance, hardcore rock, hardcore punk, and so on but never just hardcore.

Anyway, I'm on the anti-Kanye boat. I don't see what is so good about him. I like "Runaway" simply because of the beat, his lyrics are piss poor and somewhat nonsensical. I've listened to about three of his albums in an attempt to "get it" but each time I've just walked away scratching my head wondering how on earth people can adore him. Still, to each their own.

Oh, I also hate Tina Turner with a passion. That one I can't explain, it's just in my blood to hate her.

As a diehard Nirvana fan, I can completely understand this. I feel the same way about Pearl Jam. I just don't 'get' them at all.

 

Well that and the fact that Eddie Vedder sings like Cher after a stroke.

Drake sucks.

 

This is controversial? I thought this was a universal fact.

 

 

I don't consider "music" that was compiled 100% on a computer to be music. Basically anything in the dubstep direction. It is one thing to take actual instruments and alter the way they sound to make it different, but just throwing a bunch of wubs and robot sh*t into a rhythm doesn't make it music according to my ears.

In terms of hip hop, fans and labels are the main culprits of lower standards.

(FYI I don't think Drake sucks, but the quality of mainstream music is really low. Some of these guys are talented, just lazy. Stop putting out an album every single year and put some work into it. That brings me back to my first point, where fans buy this watered down music and as long as it sells why change the formula?)

Composing in a program is still composing. You're still arranging series of sounds and effects to form a logical format known as music, just like you would with arranging chords on a guitar into a composition - they're just different methods. And even then, the biggest difference between say, an electric guitar and a programming interface is the method of creating the signal (and then, you're usually using some programming pads or keyboard for the interface). The modulation of the signal is largely the same, unless you're using strictly analog signal modulation, which is somewhat rare even by guitarist standards.

I'm not sure if it's an actually international genre or if the genre applies outside of the Netherlands but it's basically this:

 

 

The typical Hardcore part of this starts at 0:42. I guess it's called hardcore techno internationally, but it's the only type of hardcore I know here in the Netherlands.

Heavy metal sucks.

 

I don't think modern pop acts, i.e. Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, etc. suck. I actually think they are talented singers, they have great voices.

 

I like most Skrillex songs.

 

Miley Cyrus has a beautiful voice, but I still hate her lyrics and personality.

Well just about all music is recorded digitally i.e. 100% computer, so pretty much every single thing recorded today is not music.

Metal music is overlooked by many because of the stereotypical assclowns that are arbitrarily plugged into the mainstream channels.

Progressive metal is the sh*t.

Bad Religion is one of the greatest bands ever.

The media doesn't decide the best artists, the fans do.

Muse is going to make an impact on the future of all music.

I like the band feindflug although they're supposedly meant to hold extreme right wing fascist views. Like really hardcore right-wing views if you know what I'm saying. I like there music though. Just not they're message.

I think Rap is a trend that's gone on long enough to die it's death at this point. Even rap fans tend to appreciate the old versus the new, that should tell you Something!

 

I would also say college music is boring as hell. The New Adult Contemporary some might think, and it may also come to be, God forbid!

 

To address the above What is Hardcore generally? Generally it's punk, when used in front of another genre, think of it in terms of "gangsta....rap", and mind you, I can like music across the genre spectrum, but I like instruments being played/used, and real singing as well as melody and song structure that's exciting and at times funny as well. Humor mixes REALLY well in music.

 

Oh, and normally I hated Christina Aguilera with a passion, with her first radio airplay hit saturation on the radio I endured at work, but against popular opinion perhaps, I really like her effort here, just as I became a fan of Lady Gaga for her rock song...which seems a rarity among her work. I think if they played to their strengths, pop artists and more 'divas' would be able to crossover to more music fans, but they do seem to have enough at this point

That one Bruno Mars song "Locked Out of Heaven" is actually pretty good, it gives off a nice Police vibe. The rest of his stuff is pretty much generic crap though, especially that one song about how he's not doing anything today. Way to give the middle finger to the working class.

Also, I want to punch people in the face who say, "anything that's popular is good." No, most of the pop these days is the same old "oh, I love you" bullcrap wrapped in a different name. If you want some real modern music and lyrics, go check out some other bands like Radiohead or Modest Mouse. Just because it's not instantly memorable that doesn't mean it's bad. Real good music needs several listens to fully appreciate.

I don't really consider myself a fan of Greenday, but your appreciation can easily change once you see those music bio documentaries, as I had, which are in very short supply. You could make documentaries about music all day long, and still only scratch the surface, if even that! There's tons and tons of musical bands covering the last 40 odd years worth more attention.

 

Greenday and other 'trendy' bands, take Foo Fighters with Dave Grohl and Nirvana accused profusely for the change in musical direction circa 1990, They later expounded on music goings on in their lives and how it all comes back to what was also influencing the previous scene. I remember good ole' Hit Parader magazine of the 1980s doing a popular column about what was in famous rockstar's own record collections, and Rob Halford had listed Pink Floyd Animals. I was pretty blown away with that, not expected.

So appreciation for me grows based on an artists' own influences and appreciation of what formed them and gave them passion

I hate modern rap music. It either caters to the "yolo" crowd or it's a bunch of slum trash yelling about how good it is to be a "gangsta".

I'm not big on country music either. Closest thing to country I like is folk.

2005 called, they want their edge back.

I suppose if it's anything it's how absolutely ridiculously overrated Kiss and AC/DC are, neither band contributed anything of value to music in terms of music itself. Their contributions to how live performances are done is without a doubt significant, but people talk them both up like they actually contributed something musically when both of them were super bland, average hard rock with a lot of charisma and fans. Both bands are more a cult of personality than actual quality music.

Rap is not a trend. It's a pillar of hip-hop and it's very much here to stay. I don't know many rap fans who 'appreciate the old versus the new' than any other genre of music to be honest. It's just basic psychology. Rose tinted glasses, Nostalgia. If you aren't into today's hip hop culture that's fine. But it's not a trend that needs ending when you say so.

I like everything except rap and country.

 

Do you realise the awful cliche this is? It's nowhere near controversial. It's just silly.

Only going to address your first point here as your second opinion has been debunked pretty thoroughly by other people. Drake is a great song writer and a very good artist, so to say he 'sucks' is controversial yes. Not sure what type of bubble you are living in with people who think he sucks. But it must be awful.

KISS is at best mediocre stadium pop rock with a good stage show.
