Ok well I couldn't find another thread that deals with this, and I wasn't sure what forum to put it in, so I just put it in the Pit.

Anyway, do you guys think that music can be corny at all? I was having a discussion about it with my friend and he said music can't be corny, only either good or bad. It's a little hard to explain what I mean...basically, do you think any music just sounds really corny/crappy?

Once again, sorry for being kinda vague, but I can't really explain my thoughts. So just tell all of us what you think.

has he listened to power metal?

OH, also Bal-Sagoth can get quite corny, although it's more the lyrical aspect of it. heck, on the new album the guy is speaking the words half the time.

Well the thing I was talking about with my friend was something like a couple D power chords, palm muted, about two sixteenth note strums and then about a eighth to quarter note rest, and then after doing that a couple times, going to a quarter not Eb power chord. Its hard to explain without hearing it, and there would be no way for me to post a recording...but doesn't it sound kinda corny?

JUST the music? I'm not sure. I'm gonna have to say that just music is very rarely corny. The Pacman sounds that Dragonforce does comes to mind though. Anything less significant than that shouldn't really be corny.

I find it sad that some classical songs have a corny, or overused place in society

i.e. The openinings of :Bach Toccata in D Minor and Beethoven Symphony #5

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor is a motherf*cking badass piece of music!

Beethoven's symphonies too!

I love Dragonforce... but we're not discussing victorious lyrics about battles long fought, we're discussing corny lyrics.

yngwie malmsteen when he sings....lol its just so generic and corny

It feels like never before!
Thunder and sparks in the Heart of the Dark,

I know you said other than singing but I just felt this needed to be adressed.

Im not arguing that. But the beginning notes have been way overused in cartoons and movies, and takes away from the nature of the piece.
