Why are people so stupid?? Why is being "popular" the only thing that matters to anyone?? Why can't people be themselves??? why is the world so ****ed up?? why does everyone listen to gangster rap??? why??

Why did you make a thread dedicated just to this?? Why don't you realize that once you get out of high school, it doesn't matter anymore?? Why do you let it affect you?? Why don't you just live your life and let those people live theirs??? Because they will eventually realize it doesn't matter. Why????????

It's a little thing called conformity, and without it, we wouldn't be at this current level of society.

Umm, no! it does matter. just like Bowling For Soup says, high school never ends

And also I dont think it is even technically gangsta rap, idk I am not an expert at rap classification.

Hahaha dude forget about high school. It's so unimportant. The other day I saw a guy wearing a Porcupine Tree shirt at the University. Earlier on I saw one of my fellow classical guitar students playing "Discipline" by King Crimson in the park. Some people just take a while longer to develop their own personalities and tastes.

My teachers always told me that repetition is a good technique to use in my writing. your repetition of the word "****ing" is brilliant.

I love you man. I'm a freshman in highschool and i feel completely lost...i wear PT and KC shirts all the time, but noone even knows who they are ... I don't think there is one freshman that has similar interests as me... Most of them are all the same: listen to the same music, where the same type of cloths. But seriously, im going to be in high school for 4 years. It's not like I can't just ignore it. I just wish people would be more open minded...

So in your assessment people that listen to gangster rap are stupid and popular. I don't know anyone that listens to gangster rap. That takes care of popular. Your favorite genre?

Don't let that shit get you down. There's a lot of life to live outside of highschool and gangster rap isn't as bad as you think it is.

People that live by standards according to what is popular are hardly ever happy.

I think what he's getting at is that without groups coming together and conforming to each others ideas early humans would not have shared technology, which is why they developed more advanced languages (when some guy made a special sharpened rock just to cut flesh efficiently he had to communicate with others how to use it and why it is a better tool than the all-purpose sharpened rock they used before). With more sharing of tech. and better ways of communicating we ended up becoming what we are today. But that’s just a short/vague picture of it and I could just be completely wrong about what he meant, ****ed if I know.

But anyway, whatever is popular in high school now and days is because one too many kids in focus groups told a company that it was cool, so they market the hell out of it and make a bunch of money off of it until something new comes along for them to exploit and destroy. The strongest human fear is of rejection, so if one were to tell the whole world that something is cool, as long as it's believable people will bite, then it spreads and eventually burns it's self out.

^ Many I am open minded about everything I enjoy rap alot if it has good lyrics and a good beat. But, the **** that people think is "the new big song" usually consists of lyrics that barely make sense, and a beat that was used thousands of times before. It really isn't music at all. The only reason everyone like it is because it's "cool".

Oh, yeah. I know what your talking about and it sucks.

Anyway, I'm a junior in high school. I've been in a lot of crowds. I've learned that a small group of good friends is the best thing in the world and all of that popularity bullshit isn't even worth thinking about. Just surround yourself with the people you like and do the things you like.

From my perspective it's somewhat of a sociological/psychological level. People from a young age are brought up to strive for acceptance, such as playing with other children, trying to have many friends. I feel that a lot of people don't like being alone because it gives us time to reflect on our own flaws. And as society grows, we feel worse and worse about our own flaws and refuse to do anything to change them, so instead we gather. After all, with more people around it's harder to pick the flaws of just one person.

By no means am I saying that this is the way it is, it's just how I feel on things.
