EVERYBODY LISTEN!!!!!


Pop is based on what is able to appeal to the majority......sadly we are left in the minority.....But that does not mean we are the better people.....Bands like the Jonas Brothers are just bands that are currently in the mainstream.....The fact that maybe they cant play a decent solo is beyond that.....I personally suck bad at soloing.....But I consider myself a strong-versatile musician, I can play drums, guitar, bass, sing, piano, trumpet, songwrite etc....


The reason why pop bands are Popular is because they appeal to the music generation!!!! Popular bands are never the ones that appeal to the 30-40 year olds.......They are the ones that appeal to the 10-16 year olds.....And we are in the generation of club music and happy-dance tunes......In the 80's there was more of a rebelious/angsty-ish phase (that was just an example)........


BUT!! I do still believe that Pop music needs to take a turn on a more creative side pretty soon (that is what steers the music industry into a different direction)......Its the same old story for every generation....."""""Band becomes famous because they try something new (but not too new) and everyone loves it to death, More bands of that same style/genre get noticed by the spotlight for their similarities to the newly famous.......THAT is the new "mainstream"......5 years later it is retired to a different style when someone steps up to the plate.


Pop is never bad unless it is taken to a point in the mainstream where creativity is null and conformity is two thumbs up...Otherwise GOOD pop bands are ones that bend the style, but are not quite the new thing yet.....


Peace...

I do not respect it at all actually....Its crappy music hands down. I like Pop that is more on the experimental side....you know? Catchy but with meaningful lyrics and maybe some new instrumental sides to it.

But never the shit that hits #1 everyday. I avoid that music as best I can.

Actually, no. That's your opinion.

I happen to like a lot of pop music. Especially Gaga. It's catchy music.

I think I used Gaga in the wrong matter there...mybad...In my opinion she is very talented but circums much of her music into the generic sounding area....It does sometimes shine through though.

All Music should be catchy, there is no excuse for a song to not be catchy...Pop music just ends up falling into generic lyrics that express no emotional reason or anything like that. Not ALL pop....just a hefty majority

Bullshit.If you were to base a song on a serial killer should it sound "catchy"?If you were unbelievibly angry or in a psychotic state do you feel like making "catchy" music?

Try a blog. UG sets you one up for free, and when you post something in the Pit that everyone's thought about a thousand times before, expect to be flamed repeatedly.

Thanks for better suggestions guys, I'll look into that soon enough.

I'm still new to the site's features other than tabs....Don't flame me for saying that either lol

You are right about the dance thing. Pop today is written for dance clubs and whatnot. I'm fine with that. It's just that haters gonna hate.

I do not enjoy most of the pop/dance stuff....But Honestly I like it when it has some kind of redeeming qualities in it.....Like the the song "I'm in Miami, Bitch!" By LMFAO.....I dont like a lot of their music because it sounds generic, but this song has a beat that I really enjoy and it sounds original for the most part.
Or for that Pitbull song, I can't remember the name but it has a pretty fun beat and has some creativity put into it.

I am age's 15-20 generation. And I hate most shit on the radio lol. My friends don't understand me for the fact that I like shit that takes talent and strong songwriting to pull off....thats exagerated but they still piss me off sometimes lol.
