So, metal fan, eh? What subgenre/bands? And why must you go around reinforcing the 'dumb teenager' and 'pretentious metal fan' stereotypes?

I have three suggestion:
1. Go listen to something else.
2. Find a radio station that suits your style of music.
3. Stop listening to music altogether.

Because it's the same recycled bullshit with the same rhythmic beats as the next song, and only change a note or tempo.

What really pissed me off when they rip off classic music, like Queen, or The Rolling Stones.

Wow, lots of whining is shown on this thread. :roll: Well fuck me.

There is a difference between "good" music and "entertaining" music. The music you hear on the mainstream nowadays is not that bad constructive-wise, but I feel it's just ruined by an overrated idea that people wanna listen to it. All I hear in pop songs now is subjected to alcohol, dancing and sexual intercourse. Not something little kids should be hearing...

Now does that mean people who like that kind of music are bad? No, they just have a different taste in music. Just like how I have a different taste with movies: some friends of mine like the 'TCM' remake for it being grittier while I prefer just the original for it's atmosphere. I also have a taste in all kinds of music, excluding rap since I personally find it degrading. Though I do consider myself a "metal head" from time to time. :XD:

Oh. I do NOT listen to the latest pop songs. I listen to the 80s. 8-)

I never stated that it started now, since it obviously has been LONG before that. I am just saying it's what little kids are listening to more often nowadays is all. Something that's pretty much scaring me.

There's certainly a lot of tuneless pap around. What i most object to is a half decent song being interupted halfway through by an arse-ache of a rapper. Or a an arse-ache of a rap song being briefly interupted by a half decent female vocalist,this seems to be of the fashion at the moment. :D

It's vaguely disturbing that a lot of adults want to duet with Justin Bieber,it's like they're trying too desperately to leech of his fanbase. Nicki Minaj rapping about Justin's "wiener" is arse-achingly embarrassing and makes her sound like a pedophile!

Passion Pit's Gossamer is one of my favourite albums of 2012, and they're pop. You can't expect to find good music if you're too busy hating on the artists on the radio. :shrug:

God, why do people who hate today's music always hold themselves on such a high pedestal? I'm just gonna guess that you're some hipster that's trying to look unique and gain acceptance by complaining about something that's so easy to avoid. My biggest guess is that you haven't/ don't even listen to the music and just complain because it looks cool and because everyone else is doing it. You should listen to a song because you like it, not because of what year it's from or what genre it is. Idiot.

There are some pop music out there that are good, the problem is the mainstream pop scene isn't. Now I don't know what you constitute as 'good' but Nicki Minaj singing? rapping? about how her panties come off when she sees guy A or how starships are meant to fly does not constitute a good pop song to me.
Listen to a pop song now and I'd bet you a thousand bucks it is about sex. This isn't the message we want kids to hear but these pop songs are everywhere.

People say the same thing every generation. It's been like that for quite a few decades now. Nothing's changed. Trust me, in the future, the majority of those song and singers will be forgotten. Only the songs and singers that had an impact on people will pass the test if time.

My god, if you're a metal fan, so help me...

They're all so elitist. I remember being in the metal phase for a while and had to try to pretend I didn't like McFly, Backstreet Boys, Elvis or all the other stuff that's totally not cool because metal/rock/punk is ALWAYS better, apparently.

I'm talking the full on fans of metal here. The ones that live and breathe it. Even if you're one of those, are you seriously going to tell me you've never come across someone who's gone 'Bob Dylan?! But there's a harmonica! And it's the wrong sort of guitar!!! Therefore he's automatically well shit!!'? To be fair, you can fit in any other group or artist in there.

Wow, super mainstream you guys, I'm so non conformist I only listen to the underground shit that no-one's heard of. (I've heard that one a fair bit too. C'mon. You MUST have heard people talk like that)

All the time! I rolled with a pretty cool crowd though. They were a local metal band and they'd spoof cover random classic rock songs for laughs.

I tend to avoid people with too narrow of mindsets. :nod:

The bunch you hung around with sounds cool! I remember being around a bunch of people once and if it wasn't Disturbed, it was shit. That mindset annoys the crap out of me.

It's always cool when you get someone who can go from listening to Black Sabbath to Britney and not complain. I like mindsets like that. :nod:

I am not a huge fan of Britney, but I do have a pretty broad taste of music. I shamelessly listen to Dubstep and Snoop Dogg when I feel like it.

I also agree with statements before, music has always been bad. We just only remember the good stuff from way back when. However, it did take more talent in the years before today..

But I do like music that doesn't require talent such as, dubstep and ke$ha.

I prefer music from the 1900's over today's. xP
