And this is a dead serious question... I mean, think about it. a hundred years ago we discovered the blues, which is undeniably the most important think to happen to modern music today, as without it the 20th century would have been a hell of alot different. It's quite a scary thought to be honest... Jimi Hendrix could have been a bus driver... But now, with the new age of computers and technology, what does the NEXT generation of music have to offer? If you look at the way things are going right now. It doesn't look too bright... I mean, Lady Gaga? Hannah Montana? Surely we can do better than that.

Sarcasm?

Lady GaGa is amazing, and I mean that.

She writes some of the catchiest songs I've ever heard in my life, and she has a genuine knowledge of music. She just writes in a distinct style, and I love that style.

Don't bring up lyrics, because I don't listen to them, nor do I listen to any lyrics unless I take an interest in them. So I could care less about what she's singing about.


Also, if you're judging the next generation of music on Lady GaGa and Hannah Montana, then you're not looking hard enough. There's more solid material out there than ever before, and everyone turns a blind eye to it.

Music isn't on a "downslope". It's just as amazing as it ever was.

Main points:

Further comercialisation.
Internet downloading in terms of the music business.
Internet downloading in terms of kids having access to more music.
Nuclear War/Zombie Outbreak/Global Warming/Whatever apocolypse you most prefer.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

she's singing about her muffin.
but joking aside she's by far my favorite pop act currently and i think she has staying power.

Just making sure... Anyway, i didn't insult her, i just don't like her music. She seems like a pretty down to earth person from what i've seen.

If I could predict the future I'd be a professional lottery player.
Music will continue to evolve. New genres will come and go. Fads will be had. Trends will begin and trends will end. You'll like some of it. You'll love some of it. You'll hate some of it.
That's what the future holds. Pretty damned exciting isn't it?

Lady Gaga and Hannah Montana are popular... And that's that my problem. People turn away from the truly great stuff because of popular opinion, and it affects there's.

Amazing material? There are some good bands out there that are still pushing out good stuff. But the most popular music nowadays is rap and pop and all that. I guess some people like it but I wish people would actually take time to get skill and put that into their music.

I'm sure there'll be more sounds and more genres of music and all that, that we just can't imagine right now. I mean, imagine telling someone 50 years ago about dance music today, it would be absolutley crazy for them. In 50 years time, I bet music would have changed loads, and there will be tons of amazing stuff out there.

And I don't get why people get so worked up about commercialisation (or however it's spelt) because it's been around since the 60s. I remember watching an interview with Lulu once, and she had no say in what she did, and the record company made her sing songs, and all the other acts as well, that she didn't like that much. It's hardly changed really.

......Who said anything about popular music? I mean, there are some AMAZING acts in popular music, as well, like Coldplay, Lady GaGa, Jay-Z, Outkast, The Fray, Sarah Bareilles, Feist, etc. All of which can be found on Billboard rankings when they release new material.

But I was more talking about music as a whole. There's more amazing material out as a whole than ever before. This modern world just allows all of the talent that would have went unheard 20 years ago be heard, and a lot of it is just astounding.

Metal and Pop is starting to intertwine, _____core.

"-core" =/= pop, you twit.

Most of the time people are just too lazy to think of a clever name for the music, so they take something blatant in the music and add "-core" to it. Metalcore, deathcore, and any electronic genre of hardcore (as in hardcore style) are the only genres I can currently think of that use "-core" properly.

"Catchy" Doesn't always mean good. To me it just sounds like the same bollocks, and i don't feel anything.

There are songs i hate that get stuck in my head.

Indie stuff (especially the psychedelic stuff) will continue to grow bigger and bigger. At least I'd like to see that, and it seems the trend is starting to go that way.

If the songs are stuck in your head, then she's doing something right.

And, as I said, she has a genuine knowledge of music, and her songs are written really well. Just sayin'.

Don't tell me metalcore doesn't have any pop influence

That's not really what I meant. What I meant was people are continuously dividing present genres into more and more subgenres. I've heard people actually talking about the difference between "Melodeath" and "Melodic Death Metal". There are thousands of arguments on youtube over genres. I've seen bands labelled as "Swamp Metal" and "Coffee Metal". I don't see how that helps bring diversity to be honest.

Edit: ^^No, metalcore doesn't have any pop influence as far as I can tell. The influences are mostly taken from the more melodic end of the metal spectrum. Clean vocals are present in a lot of genres. It's pretty hard to define "pop" music anyway, but I cannot see how you could argue that metalcore has pop influences.

Modern metalcore =/= original metalcore. People these days associate Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, etc. with metalcore, but that whole style is melodic metalcore, or NWOAHM. Whatever you choose to call it.

Metalcore is the stuff mostly made from the mid-90s up until the early 00s (and still made today, just not as much). Converge, Coalesce, early Cave In, and recently with bands like Architect, Trap Them, etc.

They're just names, the music has lots of variety if you really listen. I can kinda see what your getting at though. i mean i'd much rather listen to some Black Sabbath (True, original Metal) than Alestorm (Horrible Pirate Metal).

Anyway, i don't want this to turn into a metal subgenre debacle.

Not everyone cares about "skill."


The people you think are simple CHOOSE to make that music. They enjoy making it. A lot of people like to listen to it.


Honestly, I'm interested in hearing what you consider "skill" to be.

One thing that shall remain unchanged in the future is the "elitists" among us. If they don't like it, it will still suck in their minds, and anybody that enjoys it is beneath them.

I think the loudness war will lead to a repopularisation of minimalist music. Minimalist techno to be exact. Most genres have their times to shine but I reckon this is still to come.
