Hey guys!

Reading a particular thread, I seem to have stumbled upon a revelation of sorts.

In my newly found opinion,

All bands from a particular genre (Except for the founding band) are infact, nothing more than posers.

When a band invents a new genre, there are no pre-defined rules as to how they are supposed to be playing their genre. They just played whatever they felt like playing and they inevitably kick-start a 'movement' if the sound interesting and innovative enough. Black Sabbath did was was never done before, introduced a really heavy dynamic (Although, even they are posers to a point).

Anyone who comes after the original band, who play in the same style are essentialy posers imo. Because they're just copying and trying to emulate the style of the previous bands. Sure, the really famous and successful bands in any genre(or subgenre) are quite good, innovative and refreshing within that genre itself. But not to music as a whole.

But now, I must say that while I believe in this theory, I really don't care about it that much. Because if we judged bands and music like this, we'd all miss out on some really great stuff. And if we continue to stop others from doing the same, we're denying them something that they might benefit from.

This theory raises two final points whether you believe it or not:

1. You can't call any modern band a 'bunch of posers' because chances are, the band you claim that they are ripping off/ emulating, might in fact have ripped off some other band by themselves in the past. And there will never be sincerity while trying to emulate something.

2. We should stop comparing genres and just enjoy music as the big unorganized mess of ideas that it is in the modern age.

As I always feel the need to say: These are my opinions

No, I judge people based on how similar they are to me.
The greater the similarity, the more of a total ****ing **** they are.

Doing something similar to someone else does not a poser make if they are sincere.

This is just not a good thread. You're probably just going to delete it anyway like always.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I like this mindset actually

But anyway, yeah, of course it's stupid to not respect any artist/band that takes influence from others. Otherwise you'd pretty much have to invent music from scratch to be genuine.

I'm sorry, but I never said that you should not respect them. Read it again, if you have the patience.

Yeah you know I that ands it sometimes I think about when happening. Bands and music really just labels words and it just on our paradigms and it ends up just semantics. In reality if we just more than we wouldn't and these problems.

we all start out as posers in life and stop being posers the moment we stop caring about whether other people see us as posers or not

If you had this would be more and least acceptable with esoteric undertones of prodigious ambiguity.

You do realise that most people don't care about your shiz enough to disagree right?

You're always rambling about how everyone disagrees with you and all. It's not like that. We're just assholes to each other. Well that and your 'revelations' are retarded.
