i was originally going to write a speech bashing emo and rap and modern rock, but i was told not to offend any one so i did it in a much less obvious way:

There are many issues we are facing in modern society, but one that I would like to discuss with you today, is music. Yes modern music is a problem. Take a look back at Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi. Their music was and still is some of the most rhythmically complicated ever composed. Even handicapped by deafness, they made better music than we do. Almost all modern music is composed of 3-4 chords repeated over and over again, sometimes with a guitar “solo” thrown in. even rock and roll has become modernized. Compare ANY modern rock band to one from the 70's and you will find a BIG difference in musical complexity, and talent. Don't get me wrong, not all modern bands are this bland and simplistic in their composition. Bands such as Children of Bodom, actually imitate the classical sound using guitars, and Opeth, who have some of the most musically complex music around stay true to what music is supposed to be. Another question is, why is it that so many classical composers never had ANY recognition until after they were dead, while untalented modern-day “musicians” are millionaires? It is an injustice. Many of the so called artists don't even write their own music, and the ones that do spend so little time on a single song that it sounds like complete crap that any one could play after less than a month learning an instrument. I'm sure that if these classical composers were still alive, they'd wish they weren't. Even lyrically these bands are completely bland and unoriginal. All they talk about is sex and partying, or whine about how much their lives suck. The blame goes to the listener. We give the people our money and attention for some unknown reason when they haven't done anything worthy of it, and then they become famous and make it onto TV and the radio. I just stopped watching TV because I couldn't stand it, but now even at school people that feel like I do are tormented by this noise that is supposed to be musical. There is no longer anyway to get away from this garbage. We have come to a point where extreme measures are required. My solution is to round up every artist labeled rock, punk rock, pop, hip hop, or rap, and send put them in camps northern Canada where they will. freeze to death before being eaten by polar bears.


TL;DR
f*ck ur sh!tty music bi0tch

Yeah I don't know if the whole sending people against their will to northern Canada to eradicate them via freezing temperatures, hostile living conditions and death eventually either by the aforementioned or polar bear attacks will sit will with some listeners.

That was no good. You started bashing without purpose. You're job isn't to come up with solutions. Its to present your point in an organized and efficient manner.

That would be cool though.

Grow up. If you aren't being forced to listen to it, then you really don't have a reason to complain about it, except to maybe feel superior for a few minutes.

**** yes.

And I would get up and leave in the middle of that speech. I mean, come the **** on.

Hey TS, take a step outside the box. Or, listen to more music for a change. Hot damn that's elitist.

EDIT: To the guy below me VVVVVVVVVVVVVV: Are you being sarcastic. Because there is almost no way this sounds intelligent. Especially the last line of his so called "paragraph".
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

Elitistttttt
You sound just like my music professor..
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Is this seriously what you're going to say in you're class?
I see many people bitching at you in your foreseeable future if it is.
Jump in my fire, I'm far beyond driven.

I would also suggest doing some research before you give this speech, considered how wrong some of your points are.

You can't be serious. This is an insult to debating.

You use no logic, or even examples. If you wanted to make an actual argument against modern music, you shouldn't do it this way. Pick one aspect, such as lyrics being a bad influence and site examples. You can't really say that something as subjective as music has some defined level of good or bad.

You're ignorant. You need to grow the **** up.

I agree with this man. Are you even talking about a class? Seriously, this is not class worthy. Or even street rant worthy. This is just a rant about how you hate all music just because you're so damned narrow minded you have to insult everything you don't like or haven't heard. Really? You would say this in front of a teacher and students being serious? If this would be an A in a class, I would quite that class and move schools.

This. I can't listen to some music because of how complex it is. It's not about making a piece of music as complex as possible, it's about making it sound good, sometimes they just happen to be complex.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

You really need to do more research, seriously. There was "crappy" music in EVERY era. Listening to a certain type of music doesn't make you better than anyone.

Wow I am swayed. I used to listen to ****ty music but after hearing this speech I now only listen to opeth. Good thing I heard this.

O WAIT

Music is subjective you dumbass. Yeah the majority of mainstream music sucks, but why does that mean that people who don't care about music have to listen to good music? Would you really be happy if you heard that kind of music getting mainstream radio play? I wouldn't, I like it being something that I seek out, not having it shoved in my face. I realize that a lot of your points are true to musicians but the majority of people find simplicity to be more listenable.
