Yeah well you guys all heard about or have heard about the disco burnings in late 70's/early 80's...

Well me and a friend are planning a Rap Sucks Burning haha, we're throwing a music festival next summer for 6 days (monday - saturday). It'll go like this:

Monday: 60's covers
Tuesday: 70's covers
Wendsday: 80's covers
Thursday - Saturday is all originals.

We're gonna have food stands, a mini arcade (like space invaders, pac man, galaga, and a pinball machine or two), a stage of course, like twenty or so bands from around the KC metro area and we'll go along like that.

We're gonna ask all the rap haters to bring a rap cd and then we're going (on the last day, saturday) to take them down to this empty lot in the country, with all the people that go to the festival, throw them in a dumpster and burn them kinda like the Disco Sucks One...

its gonna be awesome just thought I'd tell you, who else thinks rap sucks?

Not really. There's quite a bit of good rap/hip hop out there. This event sounds incredibly douchey.

Oh c'mon, I think this would be good fun, besides...mainstream rap and hip hop is absolutely deadful. Besides, if they did it to disco, which in my opinion was decent music, why can't it be done to rap?

It's not any different with mainstream rock.

If you pull it off, I will come.

Also, it depends where ion KC.
Insult rap music, you'll get blown to ****ing pieces.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

the festival isn't even meant to be cool or whatever its just cuz we're really bored n wanna listen to some music man cuz we're tired of listening to big bands like motley crue n metallica cuz once you've heard the albums you don't hear any new songs until they make a new album or single and with some bands that takes forever, but when you hear a lot of new unsigned bands that have written originals its cool cuz you haven't really heard it yet

Some rap does suck. I like old school stuff though. N.W.A. ftw!

Edit: Where in Missouri is this going to take place? I like rap but I would also enjoy all the other covers of old stuff. I live in the STL.

Straying away from anything labeled as "mainstream" is a very closed minded thing to do.

This.

Rap is not disco. It has already established itself as a genre for the past 25 years.
Get over it, and learn to respect other forms of music. If you base your opinions on all you've head off the radio, than I suppose you could say modern rock and pop are trash as well.
Hi, how are you?

muppet master, it's in harrisonville it's gonna be in the park maybe but we need like $500 for insurance which is gonna suck so idk how we're gonna get it...

One thing I can't understand.


You want people to bring CD's to burn? Why would they have the CD if the don't like the music? I'm sure they wouldn't buy one just so they could burn it. So they must've acquired it some other way. Borrowed it from a friend? You shouldn't burn your buddies CD's. Maybe they stole it? Maybe


Your festival promotes much negativity.


lol Why am I such an asshole?

Its called hip hop, not rap. That's like calling rock music "Sing." And real hip hop, aka the old school stuff and the modern underground stuff, is an amazing genre of music. And its more diverse than people give it credit for. Cannibal Ox write music that is as trippy as any prog rock band, and groups like Black Star, Immortal Technique, and NWA have songs that are as socially and politically conscious as any punk rock band.

But this is the Pit, so Im sure my words of wisdom will go ignored. Its cool though, Im used to it by now.

Well hell I agree with you there, I dont like mainstream rock, I'd do a festival of burning mainstream rock if I could. It would just be a huge mess of beer, Carcass, Death, Cynic, Atheist and Suffocation fans burning Nickelback CD's in a huge bonfire, I would completely enjoy myself, and whoever disagrees...well...whatever.

I love hip-hop, with the exception of all the new "hip-pop" like 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and what not. That's just rubbish.
But good hip-hop, like N.W.A, Cypress Hill, Tribe Called Quest etc is great.
Because you're such a small minded twat, I hope a big black guy comes to your festival and sodomises you and all of your friends.

minus the whole burning of rap CDs, this would be a cool idea.


but no 90s or 00s music? squeeze that in and get rid of the burning and you may be on to something...

disco burnings were more of a celebration of the end of an era. Rap is still popular, therefore a rap burning is just prejudiced. Why don't you make it a 'burn your old music' celebration, so everyone can burn the old music they don't like anymore, regardless of genre?

oh, and burning everything at the end of the festival after the music's over is stupid. You should burn it and still have music playing that you can go back and listen to. What were you planning, to just burn the stuff and then say "all right, go home everyone."? That's stupid.

No, because that would imply that the two are equals. Cannibal Ox are, you know, good.
