i'm starting to feel old .. i'm only 25 and already getting the "why can't music be as good as it used to be" complex ...radio-wise of course .. there are many newer bands I listen to .. mostly through pandora radio searching for older bands that kick ass and getting similar bands ..
pop is bad ...but even worse .. I can't understand this dub-step stuff for anything
to me it sounds like.. twitchy bass frequencies speeding up and slowing down in some wah wah wah wom wom wom wah wah wah wom wom wom kinda morse code then high pitched "psycho" shrieks .. crappy sampled drum beat, and one sentence of lyrical content repeated over and over again in a strange way ..
side note .. my guitarist is not nearly as close minded .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mma_...7&feature=plcp
that video is him tapping the melody to that "break your heart" song by taio cruz which is creative and pretty f'in nifty. there is hope for pop .. THEY JUST HAVE TO DROP THE SYNTHS AND BRING BACK REAL MOTHER-SMURFIN MUSICIANS WHO ARE AT AN ABOVE COMPETENT PLAYING LEVEL.
