out of general curiosity, whats gonna be the next big thing?
And i mean musically, and basically, when we all finally get tired of the constantly overplayed bullshit on the radio, what will take over?
i would do a poll but i have no clue...

but i am thinking that maybe something a little less angry and a little less depressed and a little more aware. I think for the most part, everything that could possibly be said about love and anger and sadness has already been said and its definately time to explore new things...

sooo?

or answer this question, ideally, what would you like music to evolve into next?

It's hard to tell, people have been trying to predict how the music industry will change, with very little success.


Personally I would like to see thrash come back. I'm getting tired of growling vocals and hardcore dancing.

I was thinking of a genre with more riff oriented stuff on guitar, smooth bass lines, and amazing drums. But with layering and tech-ish music in it.

Heavens with a kick-ass guitarist anyone?


Not to mention, no more "scene" stuff.

I think right now, it's evolving back into the soft-rock alternative type of adult contemporary. Of course, the undergrounds are into emo and screamo, and post-screamo seems to be the hot ticket right now.

For the future? I also think it'll start reverting into more positive music, with more upbeat stuff made for dancing and stuff, I guess. Genres? Probably classic rock if that GNR actually comes and breaks out. It's really a tough call.
Back to the classic avatar.

'Nu-emo' and 'scene' is slowly evolving into stuff like Kill Hannah and Neurosonic. I mean, check out Good Charlotte album and Funeral for a Friend's new material for confirmation of this. Mindless Self Indulgence are also flying the flag for this genre.

The disturbing thing is that my band have been playing this kind of music for 3 years, and then all these bands come along that sound like us. We're going to end up being told we're ripping them off when we're just doing what we've been doing since the heighth of emo!

Same happened to Lacuna Coil, I guess... don't mention the 'E' word!

Songs to listen to from the genre I'm talking about:

Kill Hannah- 'Lips Like Morphine'
Neurosonic- 'Crazy Sheila'
Good Charlotte- 'Dance Floor Anthem'
Funeral for a Friend- 'Oblivion'
Mindless Self Indulgence- 'Straight to Video'

Well...musically as far as radio all depends on marketing and the music companies as a whole. The 70's disco and classic rock, 80's hair metal and new wave, 90's grunge and alternative, and now mainly emo and rap. Pop has always stayed a constant through out the years.

It's tough to say what really will be the new genre or theme going on. But like most new trends, it will be something underground that will break through. Most notably hardcore thrash and speed metal. I'd personally would love to hear some more singer/songwriter material like Cat Stevens and Bob Dylan, but that's just me with the type of songs I play and write.

Piano is going to become huge again. With bands like The Fray, Augustana, and guys like Gary Jules and Daniel Powter, with people like this out there, piano is going to be a pretty big thing again. Also, acoustic bands are going to become more popular. That is my guess.
#13
well there will be more than one 'hot genre' like there always is. I'm wanting to see some gool ol' classic rock/jam bands. I would love to turn on the radio and hear some Hendrix or Grateful Dead.

But i recon raggae could do it, all it needs is one good artist.

Maybe if we're lucky Jazz will come back in full swing.

pun intended? That would deffinetly be great if it did, but i doubt it ever wil im afraid. In britain, everythings going completly indie. Tons of new bands ae coming out of the wodwork, all doing something completley different. Alot of its gone quite techno, whereas some has stayed pretty raw. But a huge indie scene is whats on in britain and i thik it will stay that way, hell, im happy with it!

Hardcore, (Think Refused.) And then it will die. Then soft-rock and pop-rock I guess.

I think the melodramatic scene bands with spiky hair and choruses which begin with either an 'oooooh' or 'aaaah' and lyrics which mean almost nothing are going to continue to be a strong leading genre.
Though I would love jazz to make a comeback too. Doubt it will ever happen though.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Don't know if you guys have noticed but these "emo twats" have tried to bolt on a "rave" aspect to their music; which is just lame and embarrassing seeing as they don't know a thing about it. If you read NME "Nu Rave" will be the next thing. (Think any pop/emo band but with silly synth effects).

Embarrasingly bad. Sadly, a lot of people are lapping it up already.

better not, but theres always gunna be little whinging teenagers in the world that think *in Dr. Cox voice from scrubs* that EVERY LITTLE THING is sooooo depressing and wah wah wah wah wah.

seriously people should appreciate life because without life you cant whinge about how much life sucks.


Id like Classic Rock to come back really. And gotta love the thrash metal.

The radio doesn't play bullshit. Listen to more stations instead of generalizing all music by maybe one or two songs you hear, or by what everyone else says.

And personally I'd like folk to come back. But I doubt it'd happen.


wow you must have some kick ass radio where your at


I honestly believe that there is not going to be a next big thing
there are so many different genres and niches and so many different media options delivering these genres to a targeted audience that it will be next to impossible for just "one thing" to make a major impact on music any more.

sounds like it'll be slightly similar to mid 80's "new wave" music, if that isn't what you're already getting at. punk turned synth inspired pop

well with christina aguilera's new album, i think we are heading in a more jazzed up direction, which would be awsome, because her new album is awsome and i do love a bit of jazz in my life.
But other than that, i think rock is getting softer and more melodic, like the way Silverchair and RHCP are heading but i'd prefer it if it got a bit heavier though, theres only so much soft rock you can take though

i think electronicy style music with synths and shizz 80's style

Thats what I was thinking. I reckon synths are coming back in.

And I reckon female fronted rock bands are due for a re-insurgence too!

I actually can see something like ska-core being the next big thing, which would suck for the genre of ska overall.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

I can't pretend to have any idea what it will be, but I think a huge change is coming. I think it'll have more to do with economics than music with all this RIAA business, but the music will change as a result. I just have this sense that the entertainment industry is getting so huge and unwieldy that it's all going to come crashing down and everything will sort of have to start from scratch.
Listen to mah discs.



And coming soon, THE CLEVER DEVILS VS. THE BLONDES.

Vote for me in the

Popular music =/= growled vocals.

I've nevar heard music with growled vocals anywhere on MTV or the radio.
