so Theorically, in music Theory 1 Ive been taught that there is no such thing as 8/8 time

but if you think about isnt coldplay's clocks in 8/8 time

Right?

No. There is no 8/8 hybrid meter. There are many songs with the 3+3+2 syncopation, but that's just what it is, syncopation.

It seems like there should be an 8/8 but for some reason it's not accepted. If you want to write an 8/8 time signature just put:

3+3+2
8

All 4/4 music could be said to be 8/8 as well, or 4/8. It's all the same. Does it matter?

3/8 + 3/8 + 2/8

yeah it matters because of the pulse and generally it would be a faster tempo then 4/4

and that kinda an odd way to write time but hell they'll get it

It's common practise in the music community.

8/8 doesn't necessarily go faster than 4/4. 8/8 in 60 is slower than 4/4 in 160. You might argue that it's not nice to write 4/4 with a tempo of 440 so you should use 8/8 instead, but who the hell writes music at that kind of tempos anyways?

same thing as 4/4 lol

cant see why "not exist"

edit: and a change of time signature in the middle of a song does NOT changes its speed

i got tired of my signature and i no longer has one

well composers can decide to write in 8/8 if their passages are incredibly complex and would be easier to read if it was in a time signature that could allow all eth note values to be written as double the intended meaning. So it'll look different on teh page, but what's being played is still the same thing.

Plenty of times, I've seen composers switch time signatures just for hte sake of saving musicians from black note fever. Like, 2/2 then changing to 6/8 for more complex rhythms.

In the end anything is possible.

Switching from 2/2 to 6/8 is a completely different matter. Cut time is simple meter and is longer than the compound 6/8. This change would actually be necessary, where-as using 8/8 over 4/4 is not necessary.

i don't agree with that. i've seen tabs where the meter changes from 4/4 to 5/8 or 6/8 and they write 4/4 as 8/8 so the player can count eighth notes all the way through.
#12
8/8

8 beats a measure
eighth note is one beat

uhh. It would be handier in slower tempos, easier to read instead of a whole bunch of 16th/maybe 32nd notes. So basically 4/4 for slower pieces, I would think.
