TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.

I think you forgot so many musical genres it's funny.


dude, u-g only allows a maximum of ten poll options. I chose the genres that tend to have a subculture that goes with them. Most genres don't have this, but the ones in the poll DO.

Er... Classical?

(Metal is my favorite, but where on earth would it, or any other music for that matter, be without it?)
#10
Um, you can't put 8 variations of rock, omit jazz, classical and blues and think you can call it an unbiased poll, can you?
I'm that dude with the fro.

Wow, this is truly the worst poll I have ever seen. I can't believe you put down musical elitism...

Well, you might make her think otherwise.

You could just show her that you have a PS3 and BANG.

Heterosexual.

A chainsaw can take a girl off her feet pretty nicely. Then there are less limbs to worry about while you rape her.

FGS people!

it's not about GENREs...it's about musical cultures.

it's much easier to tell someone who's life is about thrash than someone who's into classical or jazz. therefore they aren't on the list. thankyou, now just vote and shut up

Okay, I didn't know that, but, in my defense, he had a lot of subgenres listed, when generalizations could have made for a wider range.

Seriously? From that (pathetic) list, I'd have to choose rap.

How has emo had any value to society? All it's done is turn teenagers into scrawny, whiny, self obsessed, manic depressives.

And the concept behind punk is that it's meant to destroy any form of order in society.

Grunge got people to stop washing and start slitting their wrists.

Ska got people dancing like idiots.

Prog turned people into pretentious, elitist snobs.

Funk (see ska)

And metal? I personally hate metal....so I couldn't care less about its value to society.
#18
Each genre has it's own sub-culture, and with the sub-culture comes the shit they buy. From clothes, to CDs (Am i the only one?), accessories, mp3 players, musical equipment, and bling.

Music is good for the economy. Sell your stocks, and invest in music.

But there are a lot of modern classical composers...

And jazz and contemporary classical kind of goes hand in hand sometimes today...

Most of the ones I've heard don't come close to matching the skill of earlier composers.

I agree, though, Jazz musicians tend to be incredibly talented they just went into other directions such as improvising and a different work of rhythms and harmonies.

Both are challenging, but Jazz IMO is just as admirable.

Segovia wasn't really a composer. He did a lot of arrangements and transcriptions, but that's different from original composition.

The times have changed and so have the techniques, intentions and directions. It's just new and unrecognizable by most standards, but many have as good of a grasp on composition as the household names.

The question is Which musical culture has benefited society the most? not What is your favourite genre from this list?

Besides which, there have been plenty of political rap artists. Who ever heard of a political funk musician?

Quote by Froboarder

Hey! I like grunge, funk, punk and even a bit of ska on occasion. But that isn't the point of the thread, is it?

None of these, i would have to say Classical.

Musical elitism, are you stupid?
Just sounds like a bunch of pretentious nerds to me.
I love white guitars!

It's a tie between Jazz and Blues, with Rap in a very distant second.

Grunge got people started in shooting heroin, not slitting their wrists. Please learn your genres.

A political funk artist? You mean like James Brown, Fela Kuti, Sly and the Family Stone, etc, etc..

But I also want to point out that rap is obviously related to funk, IE the Black Eyed Peas.
