It's probably a mid-life crisis. But do know your dad heard you wail and scream for hours when you were a baby. Just adjust to it!
he cant help it if hes concidered mainstream anyways, he makes his music on his laptop with small bad speakers.. he cant help it that so much people like his music that hes popular, thats what happends when your music is so good that it appeals to the majority of the earth. and youre going AGAINST listening to it?
Mainstream music today means something different from the mainstream music of yesteryear. Today's pop music is specifically formulated to appeal to the largest amount of people, and rake in the largest amount of money. Any true artist's music comes from the heart, and as different people experience life in their own separate ways, it's bound not to appeal to everyone. Rarely, there have been artists capable of accomplishing that, such as the Beatles, for example. But of course, when every other song is calculated simply to sell, even they probably won't make it to the top today. I'm not shunning anything because it's mainstream, because that would be stupid. I'm just shunning anything that's pure horseshit.
"I'm in the industry." ROFL. I saw your old profile, I even checked out the link you had on it. MDK or something, right? You're a DRUMMER in a band made up of like four teenagers. "I'm in the industry," he says. Hahahahahah! Only noticed you cause you always go around calling anyone who disagrees with you "trolls". You're a dumbass.
218- Hahahahah no stop, you're killing me. You're an amateur shit, you're not even signed, what the fuck are you doing with your life trying to bullshit people into thinking you have insider knowledge. Hahah! And yes you do, alllll the time. "TROLL!" is your favorite word. Just look at any FML you comment on Keller. And I like how you had one thumb up only a couple of minutes after posting. Hm gee, I wonder who gave you that? xD
I don't thumb myself up cause I'm not an insecure little baby that needs fucking thumbs up to feel secure, eh? And my asshole is just fine without my thumb being shoved up it. Record companies run the music industry and take the money. Skrillex is shit because he's talentless, not cause of record companies. And stop flooding for fuck's sake.
ledstratdak, go back to English class and get your teacher to explain the difference between "your" and "you're", tard-boy. Mrmisfit, nice try moving the goalposts but that's not what we were talking about at all. You can't even argue a damn point, so I won't bother trying and I'm out.
After Shrike and Misfits battle about the music industry (at least that's what started out about) I feel obligated to share my opinion. The music industry tends to be dominated by signed artists, who aren't usually calling the shots. Disturbed (Yeah!) independently produced some of their best work though. I brought that up not to contradict myself but simply to exemplify that the music industry is too dynamic to be generalized.
Holy shit, calm the fuck down guys. If you like Skrillex, great, I'm happy for you, but there is no need for all the arguments about how the music/records industry works. Now, on the subject of the FML, does your ass vibrate with the bass of your colin too when you have diarrhea, or does that only happen to me?
#78/80 I do some what agree with you but #88 is right... Being involved in the industry for a while now, there comes a point in many artists careers where the have the choice, simplistically speaking, to either accept some long term contract from a major company (making you mainstream), or to stay independent on your own and hope for the best. In the end you really do have the choice to be mainstream. Don't get me wrong though this is a super simplistic version..
351- When I made my signed artist dominating comment I was referring to the "big picture." They tend to have a higher survival rate than independents. Take the majority of metal artists that are around for example. Disturbed for me is the only one that comes to mind when I think of independent artists, and even they are/ have been signed to Reprise
I love pink Floyd but that doesn't mean I cant love Skrillex....duh, everyone has different tastes, and saying that just cause you push buttons to make it, doesn't make it music, makes no sense, that's like saying to play the piano all you do is hit the right keys, or playing the guitar is just strumming the right string. stop being ignorant.
MrMisfit, being in a band doesn't mean you know shit about the "industry". Major record companies don't give a shit about whether or not they're signing the best artists, and why should they? They're in it for the money. I don't want to join in on this war, but I will take a stance against the guy who jumped in and started getting worked up against people who corrected him. L2spell, bro, it doesn't matter if this is English class or not. You learn spelling for a reason.
Mrmisfit, being as you are an esteemed musician, and in lieu of the holiday season, you should release a Christmas album. Id like to request, "why am I such a misfit, I am not just a nitwit, why am I such a misfit, why don't I fit in." it was originally featured in Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, the claymation version from the elf who was also an aspiring dentist.
I need a way to get the attention of the moderators... ... ... .... Wait, I got it! The mod signal: 8=-.-=D. It is similar to the bat signal, but when posted in times of great distress it will grab the attention of moderators, not batman. Sounds like a good idea, right? 8=-.-=D 8=-.-=D 8=-.-=D 8=-.-=D
I must say, mrmisfit, you really are cocky thinking you are a "insider" on the music industry just because your band performs for some events. So what? Theres so many independent people and bands that never make it big because everyone focuses on Pop now-a-days. So good luck on getting your garage band to the top. Might wanna make your "demos" sound better.
U listen to misfit, your drum parts are shit. That whole band isn't good except for maybe the guitarist . I listen to post-hardcore,rock,alt rock,metal,black metal, and that band of yours sounds like nursery rhymes. It's terrible, Justin Bieber got signed and he sucks and so did Rebecca Black obviously the "industry" doesn't know what good is. So those guys telling you "you're good" are lying through there teeth.
Ledstratdak dubstep is actually music and you don't just push buttons that's rap. Dubstep is much more complex you don't push buttons, there is actually much more complexion to the whole thing. And if you are to tell me I'm wrong, then you sir are terribly mistaken for I am a DJ as well.
I was going through thumbing down everyone that said they liked dubstep, but I got bored. So I'm just going to let you know here, if you posted or are going to post a pro-dunstep comment, I thumb you down. It is not music. Someone that creates dubstep is not a musician. To be a musician, you must play an instrument, not a computer.
#507, It doesn't change the fact that you specifically said, "im in the industry, my band blah blah blah". Don't back down kiddo. Its been said. Review all ur previous comments. Don't say you're gonna be successful with your band because this "mainstream" music is taking over. Plus, your time raging on here, could be used for practicing. :)
I'm gonna defend pop music music for a second- not every other song is made to sell. Lots of them are, but there are the occasional artist who believes in what they are singing. Also, as far as I'm concerned, dubstep should just go right the hell away. Anyone who understands music knows that dubstep follows no chord progression of any kind; I'm not one to jump on something I'm not into and trash it, but without a chord progression, is it even music?
Many rap songs, and as someone said earlier, ambient music don't follow cords either, are they still songs. I'm not going to say that I'm the greatest musician in the world, but I do play guitar and piano, and have made techno/dubstep songs on garage band as well, and I have to say that making a techno song from scratch is much harder than making a song on an instrument.
Real music is music that is sincere. I see a lot of people talking about "real instruments". What is a "real instrument"? The only real instrument is your heart. If the sounds are coming from within your soul, it doesn't matter what you use to produce them. Real musicians are the ones who put everything they have mentally and physically into creating something that will have a deep effect on those who listen to it. The shallow bullshit everyone calls "music" is not such. It may sound "good", but it won't bring you into another world, the way real music will.
