What happened to music?

27 Replies 899 Views Created 19-01-2010

The quality of music today is so much worse than that of yesteryear i mean you only have to look at the brit awards nominees to see.

Too many one hit wonders in that line up, crap songs and awful albums. The only bands that deserve a vote is Muse and Dire straits for the brothers in arms album.

 

It's especially bad in Britain we can't seem to produce good bands/artists anymore, i firmly believe Muse are the best band to come out of the UK in the last 15 years or so. 

 

What happened to music and when did the talent of song and instruments get replaced by people wearing rags on their heads or baseball caps talking really fast over beat?

The Brits have always been crap, there is good music in this country you just have to look for it.

Best British Group - JLS :smileyvery-happy:
Outstanding Contribution award - Robbie Williams :smileyvery-happy:

hehe the Brit awards are a joke, apparently Muse wanted to play live at the awards but the organisers didn't want them to :smileysad:

It's not down to whoever has the most talent or who's most unique, it's down to the most popular.

Re: What happened to music?

I get what you are saying but a lot of the bands/artists there like Friendly Fires, Florence + The Machine, Muse, Bat For Lashes, Kasabian, Ellie Goulding, Marina & The Diamonds, Norah Jones, Seasick Steve and Empire Of The Sun are among my favourites at this moment in time.

 

Though really important categories like Album of 30 Years and British Single are a joke... I love Coldplay but to say it is among the best of the last 30 years? Come on, be realistic.

I hope La Roux or Lily Allen win the single award, as they stand out. The rest are so similar I'd rather ***** the bed.

 

I'd love to see the Verve win the album award just because I don't think it's expected but this is the Brits and it normally is so stupid. There are actually a lot of good music there but not exactly evenly spread out.

Best British band of the past decade tbh.

 

You just have to LOOK for music. Charts and award ceremonies means jack these days.
