there's no such thing as bad music. All music is an art-form, so it purely depends on if you like it or not. If you don't like pop or rap or whatever, you just don't like rap or pop. It's honestly that simple.
You not liking a band or todays music does not make them a bad band. Saying that any band sucks is a stupid thing to say. Flaming a band or genre because you don't like it only reflects an individuals knowledge towards art.
With that said, you do not have to look into "the outskirts" to find good music. All music is good music, or maybe all music is bad music, DEPENDING ON YOUR OWN PERSONNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAALLLLL! PREFERENCE
on another note, what trippy ambient musician do you listen to? post a link

|Ddraig Cymry||You've got to think, do you honestly remember EVERY band from 5-10 years ago? How about EVERY song on the radio from back then? Do your parents remember EVERY band and song from their time? No. Music is one of the most fickle and ever-changing mediums of human expression. There's a lot of samey sounding shit our there, but then again there's also s shit-ton of music that people have never heard, whether because it's outside their generation or locale. With the internet it's incredibly easy to connect with like-minded individuals and discuss music. For example, recently I've been getting into older black metal bands like Venom and Bathory, because people I've been following on Tumblr tell me about how original and pure the music is by them (and they're right by the way). What kind of music are you into?|

Thats how you scream. The words can be understood and its not a bunch of noise coming from guys trying too hard to sound hardcore. This shit will boil your soul with the raw passion put into the music. It doesn't scream because it tries to be hardcore. It screams because it IS hardcore. You can literally feel the emotion in this music.
Not like the new garbage you hear today.

This thread started with someone being upset that common song progressions have made it to metal, and that this is a new trend. Pretty sure every band relies on those compositions, aside from those that decide to go linear in their song writing and not repeat progressions in their songs (ie. the abuse of time signatures and sweet sweet tone). I think your disappointment lies in that you've spent so long listening to the same progressions in songs regardless of genre that you're actually noticing that all the music we're talking about comes from 12 notes and their octaves. There's only so much musicians can do to make it interesting and new within the confines of western music theory. Tuning lower sure creates wicked tones and heavier music (thanks, Black Sabbath) but at some point you're going to hear something new and compare it to something you know and realize it's all the same or that the new guys are ripping off the old guys, whatever angle you want to take on it.
Intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, outro and all it's variants are going nowhere fast, but can take on many forms and aren't limited to a genre.
In short, I agree with ThatOtherGuy.

|ThatOtherGuy||Crying that there is no good music left is like a thirty year old desperate single woman claiming that there are no good men left. They exist in good numbers it's just that where you looking sucks and it takes time and patience to weed through all the mediocre crap.|

Rap / hip-hop does NOT fit into a musical category, it fits far closer into a poetry category, and some artists I have a respect for, AS POETS, but not as musicians.
I can rhyme till the sun dont shine,
and if you think me a liar, then im gunna set you on fire.
I can rhyme stupidly easy, I can make a beat and rhyme to it stupidly easy, there is no skill involved in rhyming off another persons beat. I will respect them as music when I see them doing their thing while, at the very least, having somneone behind them playing the melody they are rapping / hip-hoping to.
to bring up the thoughts of industrial music, the music itsself is composed and usually unique, even if its using artificial means, most of the music is not just a set beat, it generally has, intros, verses, etc.
And ill say it once again, certain rap / hip-hop I like, but I cant call it music, its not made like music, its made like poetry, shitty poetry with "bad words" scattered through it speaking very blatently about "gang style life" it is still a form of poetry.
To me, Calling Rap / Hip-hop music is like calling Demotivational posters works of art.

|Corporal Punishment 69||So, using machines is less valid somehow than using a traditional instrument? Try picking up a TR 909, the classic electronic music base (much as a guitar is for rock), and see what you come up with.... It takes as long to master as any other instrument, and is only one of the dozens of machines someone needs to master in order to produce electronic music. Just because you dislike the results doesn't mean there's no skill involved, or that one genre is somehow "better" than another...... Personally, I love examples of all kinds of music, without exception......|

How is that even slightly about drugs?
You're talking nonsense!
In my younger days it used to be a rule that you couldn't listen to this song without a bong on the go, many happy nights were spent listening to this album, if only I could remember them now
