Go. Personal views and opinions wanted.


By the way, I'm not saying males make better musicians, and I realize there are plenty of female artists. But to understand what I'm saying, just go into your iTunes library (or similar music library) and compare the amount of male artists to female artists.

Because they're physically stronger. Probably smarter too. Except for axl rose. And Kurt Cobain, he doesn't seem like a brainiac.

Drugs, some chords, solo which sounds just like the vocal harmony, repeat.

Why does the quantity of Male and Female artists matter in the least way?


Does something really have to matter to be interesting? Do you really waste your years scoping out the most significant things possible to talk about?

Let's get back on topic. But the Kurt Cobain jokes can keep coming.

I don't think it's male dominated.
I personally think it's only like a 3:2 male-female ratio.
Tons of female musicians out there.

Men as a tendency specialise in a particular skill, whereas women are more likely to value been able at a range of different skills. That and women have babies, if you're a woman, aged 30 and you want kids you have to take a year or 2 out to go and do that. If you're a man aged 30 you're probably at your peak ability and can have kids and still carry on.

The solo which sounds like the vocal harmony only occurs in one song. Not to mention the weird avant garde tracks which never get played on the radio.
#25
There seem to be more female solo artists than female bands. In terms of solo artists I wouldn't say it's male dominated at all. I don't know why it is with bands.

No offense taken, nirvana are SUPPOSED to be simple, as a reaction to the self indulgent hair nonsense that proceeded them. If you don't like that it's cool with me, but don't try and use it as an insult, it's what defines them as a band.

Also, unfunny kitchen jokes aside, female artists are less successful in guitar music because traditionally rock is associated with masculine values and male role models. Thus more rock fans are male than female too. As for other genres of music, different genres carry different labels, eg. Hip hop and metal are uber-masculine, while indie, jazz and classical are more androgenous.

EDIT:

I take it you're not a father then? Kids are a huge commitment, regardless of your gender and constant touring is generally not possible. Besides, most rock stars songwriting peaks alot younger than 30.

Women =/= rock.


Grace Slick, Janis Joplin?

Our Itunes is filled with male musicians because 90% of us listen to metal, and not many girls like it therefore there are less musicians.

Girls mostly like rap and hip hop nowadays...

Well, the people who treat him like the messiah need to grow up, but then so do the people on the hate bandwagon. There's a reason the artistic community at large place value on Nirvanas music, even if you don't agree with that reason. So I suggest you take your objective "truth" and shove it somewhere people won't have to look at it.

Because men probably listen to the radio a helluva lot more than women. So the radio is going to play more male artists in just about any genre.

Except crappy pop. But that's besides the point.

Your statement that music is dominated by males, well, is partially true. Mainstream music is dominated by males.

And the reason metal/rock/alternative is dominated by males in general is because most guys probably create these bands to either:

1. Release tension through anger/other forms. It's the male nature to do that sort of thing.

2. Get women.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

there are tons of female musicians, you just have to search deeper because not all of them have a wide audience.

Men=Rock and bands

Woman=Hip hop and such

Hip hop tends to get illegally downloaded more since pre teens dont give a damn about artistic material so itunes doesnt bother to put them up
