Music Today

Popular music today sucks.

If you don't agree with me, you're part of the problem. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

I've been contemplating the reason for this ever since this faggot started yelling about Superman, loaded the bits he recorded from his cellphone into a demo version of FL-Studio, couldn't figure out how to make it work, shat on whatever virus ridden piece of fuck he called a computer at the time (because it was obviously the computer's fault), came back a week later to find the "masterpiece" his shit wrote, took credit for it, then became famous for something he had to rely on his excrement to provide for him.

My Conclusion:

I blame the "so easy a caveman could do it" accessibility we have to music now. A bunch of shitheads with no taste in music can over-hype crappy bands, play it to death so that even more shitheads hear it, eventually enabling it to spread like a virus.

Money crazed record labels jump on the bandwagon and cash in on the profits by offering to distribute under a contract that grants them a percentage of the profits from record sales and royalties. They could give a shit less about the quality of the music, just as long as it's "popular" enough to turn a profit.

This music is only around about a month(played on every fucking radio station imaginable) before dying off like Swine Flu. Only to be replaced by an even SHITTIER "artist" or "song".

Sadly, It's unavoidable.

Take Justin Bieber for example.

Below is a screenshot of the info area on one of his music videos on YouTube.


57% of the people that bothered to even waste their time to provide their opinion of this video HATE IT. Yet, they're paying Mr. Bieber's heating bill.

Take note of the view counter. Every time someone clicks on that video, that's more money in VEVO's pocket. All you have to do is tell someone how AWFUL the song is and their curiosity will bring them to look up the video and contribute to the problem.

If there's one thing we can learn from this, it's that it doesn't matter if you're talented at what you do, just that everyone knows about it.
