Every night i find myself listening to the same top 40 shit.

It all just seems like uniform robotic music and no-one even uses instrumental anymore. Does anyone else find this irritating or is it just me? We need more real "bands" playing the popular music instead of just rap and sex songs.

Why do you listen to it every night?

I get the impression that top 40 stuff is usually made for dancing rather than for musical expression.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

I like the radio. However, I don't like them playing Help is On The Way - Rise Against and Rope - Foo Fighters over and over and over again, with some 90's Metallica song in-between them and White Rabbit - Egypt Central when they get bored with Metallica. That is seriously all it seems like my local rock station plays. Plus a little Seether or Shinedown sometimes.

For the record, I clicked "This shit is fine" and "Don't care".

I don't care. I have to listen to top 40 stuff all the time too (everybody I know loves it). Some of it is good i my opinion. I don't like most of it, but it's not a big deal.

We can keep real rappers and pop singers, it doesn't have to "bands" playing.

Edit: To be fair, I never hear Green Day on top 40 stations (I heard them a few times back in 2004-05). But they are still mainstream and very famous, so the whole "nobody knows them they need radio airplay" point is invalid. And who cares anyway? Some people feel the same way about Green Day as you feel about rappers and sex songs.

Oh my god...I thought I was the only one who didn't like pop music.

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong

Who cares what genre a song is in? If you like it, that's all that matters. There are great and shitty "pop" songs just like there are great or shitty songs in any genre. If you don't like the radio, stop listening to it.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

There's a reason I don't listen to the radio too often, TS...

Edit: Why are all the Mar '11ers making threads all the sudden? And none of the threads works of genius either?

That's because it is in a way uniform robotic music.

I'd suggest going to another medium to listen to music. Personally, if I'm not in my car and listening to radio at my house, I listen to Pandora. I loves me some Pandora.

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?

I checked "Don't care" and "Hell yeah" because:

a) I almost never listen to the radio, so there's the Don't Care.
b) I do occasionally hear the shit that passes for music these days and whenever the latest craze song comes out, it's all I hear about and it makes me die a little inside.
So, hell yeah.

I listen to 102.1, 97.7, 103.3, 107.9, and 107.1. Between those stations, I get a decent selection of rock/indie music to listen to through the radio if I don't have my iPod to listen to in the car. Quit your bitching and stupidity, because throwing radio-pop into a "band" format doesn't magically make the music less predictable.
#24
TS, I have a job for you.

1. Get a band
2. Make music that you like
3. Get on the radio
4. ???
5. Profit and stop whining.

It's on the radio because it's popular. The "Real" music that you like, you know back in the good old days, hasn't been mainstream for quite a while. Green Day's on the radio, actually. And yeah, sex is definitely not a theme in any genre of rock.

Quote by fee.young
some are good but its all the same- on originality

I don't know about you, but when I hear any Green Day song I immediately think "K Billy Joe you're a rebel and a loner but that makes you cooler"
