Isn't this quote just as close minded as what it's suggesting?

"A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons."

Last time I checked there wasn't a right or wrong with musical taste.


Am I right with this? Isn't music still music without a certain instrument or vocalist?


Correct me if I'm wrong.

A recent study also showed that, that 8% are better at not failing at life than the majority

it does


it features alot of bass guitar work, and often some electric or acoustic guitar.well, the stuff i listen too.

i wouldnt say theres singing in stuff by necrophagist or lamb of God, but imo thats still music

No musical taste is completely objective and that saying is 100% true.

and also, most of Tchaikovsky's works dont have guitar or singing, does that mean that they arent music?
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

Yeah, they just have that quote in their sigs cause they're sick of all the people who are so spiteful of anything devoid of guitars.

It is because many people have in their signatures "A recent study shows that 92% of teenagers moved to rap, if you're one of the 8% who listen to REAL music...so on and so on"
That is why I have it. I respect peoples musicals tastes, honestly I don't care if they listen to Fall Out Boy, P-Diddy, or Beethoven, but when people put shit like that on the internet it pisses me off, and that is why I have the reverse in my signature.

so all instrumentals before the guitar were not music?

Beethoven? Bach? Mozart?

IMO you are very closed minded

Well what about composers? Like John Cage or even Bach? No guitar there, but two very influential musicians.

Music (myoo'-zik) - an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.

I can see some rap as music, because some rap employs instruments and melody, but I absolutely can't stand gansta rap or popular rap.

Just because it's gangsta rap doesn't mean it doesn't have melody, and while I dislike most popular rap, it still is music.

right, that's what I meant. I guess I didn't word it very well. That's why I had the definition of music there. I was just saying I can't stand those kinds of rap, and the reason for that is that the lyrics are completely pointless. No one cares how many people you've shot or how many hoes you've got. Rap about something that matters, then I'll actually consider you a musician. Anyone can write lyrics filled with profanity about smacking their bitches or running from the cops.

Yes, thats the point. Its a spoof on a similar idiot quote that a lot of morons on this site use that says the same thing but about rap music. It was adopted and adapted by someone who is a fan of rap or hip-hop in order to make the point that the original was idiotic.
Quote by BeefWellington

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...
