That's what's up. People seem to be forgetting this in a lot of genres. It's also one of the reasons that Les Claypool is one of my favorite living musicians. I think anyone with music so different that it can't be classified deserves mad respect.
That's why it's so sad to me that the majority of the population seems to be forgetting that music is art. This is a pretty generous parallel for pop music, but If I repaint the Mona Lisa am I a real artist? I may have the technical proficiency to paint it, but what's the point if someone already did it?
