Default Re: My rant on today's pop music

I think there are many fine works of art that were bypassed by the wider public. How many people today listen to Madona but have never read Sophocles?

To base a value upon artistic merit based solely on public appetite is, in a word, base.

Popular culture often is not based in a so called "value". Often it can be viewed as a herd movement based in access to the so called artistic work.
