I'm 38 & listen to pretty much anything except r&b, gangsta rap, country & thrash metal & any boyband & girl band crap, R&B & gangsta rap are by far worst as they just seem to all be clones of each other they destroy classic tunes by sampling them to death.
Gangsta rap who cares who wants to shoot you or you wanna kill, Die put us out of our misery.
I dont know whats so special about muse..
Maybe i need to listen to them properly to understand...
Listening right now
I just love the variety.
I can listen to all their songs in a row and never find something the same, so many other bands just pump out the same stuff with a different name.
Muse: Butterflies and Hurricanes
Completely different, meaning I never ever get bored of listening to them.
I hate the way music has become. All it seems today is som black guy going "Yeeeeaaaahhhh girl, yeaaaah" Or something like that. Or some wanna-be RnB group like N Dubz. They all sound the same though.
Every now and again though, you do come across hidden Gems such as Placebo and Brand New. Their lyrics pack so much depth, especially Brand New. I am amazed, in-fact I have been left speechless by some of their lyrics and how they place them into their songs. For anyone who doesn't believe me, listen to a song called Guernica. It is about how his granddad was dying, and he was on tour in Spain and how he wishes he could be there with him. The lyrics are amazing.
The only rappers I can say I like are Dre and Eminem. I hate all the rubbish that comes from people like Flo-Rida, Lil Wayne and just the new wave that is here now.
Ok, so this is me ranting about how much i hate the music industry right now. Im 19 and think the music today is terrible Lady Gaga and Flo Rida, lil wayne. Its all c**p in my opinion. I admit that im mostly into to rock and metal. What happened to the good 'pop' music where the groups actually played instruments not like today where its just all jumping around on stage to some wierd sound that happens when u push a button on a machine.
Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me bein an old grumpy guy before my time lol.
I absolutley 100% completely agree with you. I too listen to rock and metal but there's so many bands/artists out there that couldn't write a decent piece of music if it slapped them in the face. Dance music for example is complete garbage, every song sounds exactly same, same goes for hip hop, R&B, basically any song that enters the charts these days apart from a phew exeptions is crap.
I could rant on about it all day but i'm not going to because I can't be bothered
You can't seriously be sayin the music industry is bad going off pop music can you?
