Some dude mentioned Papa Roach and Avenged Sevenfold when I asked him what bands he listened to when he said he liked metalcore and screamo. You know, cause screamo is music with screamed vocals, and metalcore is music with rap and metal (which was his definition).

i read through an issue of AP today. it had an article on the most anticipated albums to come in 2010. im pretty sure all but maybe three were your standard mediocre neon pop bands. there was no diversity whatsoever. ive heard a lot of those bands. most of em have one or two good songs but its mostly overproduced waterdown pop.

all in all music in the media is ****ed. all the kids who say they listen to screamo, would cry if they heard seatia. all the asses who think paparoach is metalcore wouldnt last a minute at a shai hulud show.


ANYWAY

personally i think one huge problem is that there are too many labels signing bands that are not experienced. theres something about recording basement tracks that helps move music in new directions i think.

One legit band in hardcore, one legit band in grindcore, none in screamo.

But then again, what the hell do you expect and what does it matter anyway? People have shitty music taste. Always was, always will be.

I'm really not that bothered that people listen to bad music, it's the fact that people think ADTR is screamo that bothers me.

i honestly believe oversaturation is to blame. im getting pissed off just reading this thread.

i feel like the only kid in highschool who actually cares enough about music to understand its roots and genres.

Well that's just it. For most people music is just casual listen time, even in more "extreme" music. "it sounds good to them, they like it" and that's as far as they'll go.

I saw these results coming...but still ): poor grindcore, poor, poor screamo.
#11
The first picture can be forgiven slightly...

Second and third made me sad. I hate that screamo has become a derogatory genre.

What surprises me the most is the fact that ADTR is #23 most listened artist in 2009.

What's even worse is their Melodic Death Metal tag. Dead by April? Seriously? They're a shitty Swedish pop-metalcore band. Just because they're Swedish doesn't mean they're melodeath.

Seriously, they're worse than ADTR.

EDIT: Lamb of God in Death Metal?

ino, rite? One of the old Haunted guitarists plays in it. Or maybe an ex Nightrage guitarist. Either way, some Swedish guy left a good band to play in it.

Dead By April is the worst band ever.

Yes, unless Brokencyde is also being discussed.

The Grindcore list made me actually laugh. That was hilarious.

Also, a guy just posted in another forum that the problem with ETID live "was that they were too energetic and that the guitar player (JB) spat and was gross".

Seriously...

Why do these people even listen to harder music, and why do they go to shows?

No. They're not okay lists. They're fucking terrible.
It proves that kids today have very little understanding of genre schisms and the roots of heavy music.

It's from last.fm.

The lists are stupid though, all it takes is for the band to be tagged hardcore by anyone, then it will appear under the hardcore list. It's entirely user based.
#31
who cares. kids who listen to those bands arent hardcore kids and they wont be relevant to the hardcore scene in a year or two anyway, or they will take their heads out of their asses and listen to good music one day.

that said, i personally dont care what music anyone listens to.. shouldnt be labeled as hardcore though

the screamo list is prolly the funniest one though

Sorry, I'm stealing that to use IRL.

I'm surprised Anaal Nathrakh is on there though...as anything. I mean..they have a grindcore influence, but the fact that enough people are listening to them to put them on that list, makes me feel...a little better.

Every genre has the stupid kids that follow stupid bands blindly make the real fans ashamed to be fans. Rock has Nickleback. Metal has Slipknot. Rap has Soulja Boi (thousands upon thousands of other talentless ****s ruining things for the few good artists) But you get the point don't pay attention to that shit it's just the stupid kids.

My point wasn't the terrible music, though. It's the fact that most of the bands aren't even remotely close to the genre they've been put in.
