"boy bands" like One Direction pretty much aren't even bands
they're just singers mostly, the production and actual musianship that goes into the recording process is usually just studio guys that never even get any fame at all.
these kids are just chosen by some big record producer and they're thrown into the studio and literally packaged and manufactured catered to teen girls

yuck

k.lainad...you pretty much listed the reasons I have no respect for boy bands either

I don't see calling singers without instrument "bands". That's called a chorus. Maybe a glee club. Maybe a quartet. Not "band".
#18
Boy quartet has no alliteration. Ugly rich lazy people like alliteration they can market.

Have no idea what Big Time Rush is, but it sounds like one of those boring-ass "indie" "folk"-"rock" bands all my friends inexplicably like, in which case I agree wholeheartedly. David Coverdale has a great voice too.

I'm a music major so even though everybody, including professors, tend to make the mistake of categorizing us either as singers or instrumentalists (and in many cases, singers or musicians), we all ultimately know to and treat vocalists as instrumentalists.

To be fair, the old boy bands were great. The Beatles, the Beach Boys, and I bet we can consider the Jacksons a boy band too.

The thing is, at least for the Beatles, they were extremely proficient songwriters too. They managed to write hits not only for themselves but for other artists. I don't know as much about the Beach Boys and the Jacksons but I think it's the same case for them to an extent. Current boy bands don't write their own songs, their producers do.

guys guys guys how fuckin hilarious is it that almost every late 90's/early 2000's boy band was paid for by one of the largest ponzi schemes in history lol

I don't know as much about the Beach Boys and the Jacksons but I think it's the same case for them to an extent. Current boy bands don't write their own songs, their producers do.
Brian Wilson, the core member of the Beach Boys, wrote practically everything they did, and he is excellent at it. As for the Jacksons, it's a little of both; they have original songs and some written by others (such as Blame It On the Boogie, which was written by a Jackson with no relation to the brothers).

A big problem I have with a lot of artists is that they don't write their own material like you say, and they don't really make up for it like jazz musicians do by making already well-known songs their own. That doesn't take away from some artists being talented interpreters, but as a composer myself, I find it sad that we all know who Céline Dion is (not that she doesn't deserve it), but almost nobody knows who Diane Warren is in comparison, even if she wrote a ton of hit songs for various artists, including Céline. For example, she wrote Don't Wanna Miss a Thing which was performed by Aerosmith.

Composers should be getting just as much if not more prestige and love than performers who don't compose. This is at least true for classical music: David Garrett may be famous because he's a talented violinist and Vladimir Horowitz may be famous because he was a talented pianist, but most people know Beethoven before they know either of these interpreters, and they all deserve respect.

On the other hand, I have a few songs I don't ever intend on playing myself for whatever reason, so if it weren't for the possibility of writing a song so someone else can perform it (in many cases, songwriters will write songs with specific performers in mind -- in fact, sometimes these songwriters won't even manage to get them because they're busy, or simply not interested), these works would never be performed, even if they're good. I actually want to write for some of my friends who don't write original material for this reason. They've also put a lot of hard work and effort to become talented performers and they deserve the prestige for that, although most composers are also interpreters to a degree.

TL;DR -- Basically, I don't so much have a problem with performers who don't compose as I do with the fact that they're the stars, with love, fame and influence, and not so much the writers. Ella Fitzgerald was a superb singer, but she exclusively sang songs written by talented but somewhat lesser-known people.

Here in Portugal everyone says "boys band" instead of boy band for some reason. That's all I have to add.
