More and more im noticing every year that in the music industry well the successful artist there is a HUE emphasis on being ripped or looking good.

One one side of the equation you have all the rappers, people like busta rhymes are pretty much professinal body builders and music artists on the side, you've also got timbaland who is ripped these days after losing a huge amount of weight 50 cent and a few others are quite big

And then on the more relevant side youve got the metal people cralde of filth guitarist are fairly big. manowar ive heard them talking weights avenged sevenfold im sure there is many more other you can think of Slash i think recently has also put on some decent muscle. and metallica James Hetfield looks fairly bulky.

What do you guys think? I think i better start hitting the gym...

You just named about 5 rappers. Do you want to talk about talentless apes or the music industry?

What about Stephen Carpenter? Chino Moreno? Kim Thayil?

None of these are exactly "ripped"

We could but I think less people respect him as a member of the music industry where as there is just no room for debate that Symphony X is anything less than pwnage.
#12
It's just the trend these days for people (especially famous) to grow some bulk...
#13
I have tons of respect for Malmsteen, I just liked all the comedy videos about him. As for Symphony X being pwnage....understatement... they are the essence of pwnage

Cultured in uni is not vomiting on your own shoes whilst drunk is it not?

And Symphony X goes hand in hand with classical anyway. Listen to more neo-classical boy! That way you get metal and classical in 1 go. Show that to your new uni friends.

Heh, I just got Tracy Chapman's Fast Car for a roadtrip mix CD I'm making my wife...oh the irony. Seriously though, I've about had it with society turning everyone into floppy cocked metrosexuals. If I see one more clean cut dude wearing a button-up tucked into his Express men's jeans I may vomit.

Haha, rappers aren't talentless, it takes a lot of skill to construct good, well flowing rap

I think the bands TS quoted just want to look good... What's wrong with that?

bowling soup guy is another exception metal is built on a certain machoism there is plenty of people trying ot get big rammstein, cradle of filth, metallica, a7x plenty more

um the rappers are just on a whole different leval unfortunently

i didnt mention emos because emso would cry in the weights room, cos weights are hard? its not cool for them... btu for everyone else
#25
Most Rappers take steriods anyway to look buff cos it makes them look tougher and make them look like they are fresh out of a brutal gang-war....
#26
I actually believe the threadstarter has a good point. Of course there are musicians many don't find attractive, however it's most likely more easy for a musician to achieve mainstream success if he/she is good-looking.
#27
3 words: Bowling For Soup.

I think a lot of people in the Music Industrly are buff for their own reasons. Sutch as they just wanna' look better.

EDIT: Oh, papersun87 mentioned Bowling For Soup befor me

Pardon me, but did you just say Wizzle Wazzle?

You sound like a stoned Umpa Lumpa speaking ebonics.

Jack White? hes not ripped (hes kinda fat, and at times has had 2 chins!)
and hes pale as hell and it would seem doesnt try to change any of that.

but i spoze thats just certain characters.

The Music industry is becoming such a scene tho, everybody has to be perfect.
i say scene, tho i really mean that its a trend- to be into music and to look good and like what everybody else likes. everybody puts so emphasis on looking good. thats why grunge rules.

That was the point sir. I wanted my grammar to stand in stark contrast to yours thus heightening the comedic value.
