    The state of music?

    In this day and age we are in, there is a lot of music, many different genres, styles etc.
    More and more we are seeing less one hit wonders (trust me we still have a few) but even back in the 90's there was so many one hit wonders, so many of your favorite tracks were considered to fall in this category.
    There was still muchmusic/mtv back then, but now along with the great band coverage on myspace, so many people are given the shot to stardom, and gain many new fans in different ways.
    Sure there is still downloading and that may affect cd sales, but with the new things out now and whatever there is in the future, downloading may be come less and less of a problem. (May happen still, but maybe not as much).
    Anyways I ranted and raved about many different topics here, but I am hoping to get some good discussion going here. Fellow wiichatters, how do you feel about the state of music?

    Personally I think the music industry has gone stale in the past few years. Admittedly I've never been much of a fan of popular music in the first place, but at least before I could respect it. Now the only artists on the radio seem to be either talentless gangster rappers or identical NME-favourite indie bands. That's not to say I think all music nowadays is bad, but rather it largely gets ignored by the media.

    Downloading isn't going to go away any time soon. I see it becoming even more common, especially now the music industry is finally catching onto it. Their absolute paranoia about piracy could backfire though- if they put too many anti-piracy/spyware things on the downloads they could end up with no one buying them and people will just go back to downloading them illegally.

    mainstream sounds all the same.
    like, mainstream always sounds similar.
    but back in the 60s and crap you could understand what they were saying.
    now its all about screaming and tons of clashing music, which imo, makes better party music than listening to on your ipod.
    i dont know, besides that, it seems like all people use music for is to like..label themselves. its so easy for anyone to start saying they like so and so bands and start listening to crap, then they magically change their whole wardrobe and what not.
    my point:
    music is now a statement more than it is actual music.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    I agree with Napalmbrain the music industry has gone dry. I feel that they are putting out to much of that teeny bopper stuff. No one really has meaning behind there music anymore. I feel since the 90's when the grunge era was around music was good. But since then i havent felt it.

    And yes downloading will never go away, but in all aspects if u really look at it downloading helps the artist. For me atleast if i download something and like it, i will go out and buy there album.

    I know people will prob disagree with me but this is just my opinon.

    'The Music Scene' has been downhill for the last fifteen years. Before that the radio and music channels would play different kinds of good music, whereas today you get "play new song, now play ten other songs exactly like that, then that first song and the rest never get played again, new new song comes out and that cycle continues etc."

    And the Green Day I knew back in the 90s would never play with U2. THERE IS NOTHING PUNK ABOUT PUNK ANYMORE. Punk used to all different colors like tye-dye now it all washed out into one sound. Punk now officially blows chunks.

    I think Music is more diverse these days. Most negative minded individuals will bash the mainstream music, which is ignorent since their are so many artists who feel that way. I think the songs that the classic minded will enjoy are found in the indie bands. Their is good music out there, they're just not as popular.

    Mindless ranting and random thoughts to follow:

    I think rock music is in an awful state right now, and I really blame mainstream/MTV stations for making so little music available for public consumption. Ask ten random people walking down the street about who their favorite current rock band is. 9 out of 10 of them will probably say Nickelback or another shit pop band that is plastered all over the radio and labeled 'rock'. IMO, that really sucks.

    Also, since when did Pop and Rock get grouped together into one genre? Last time I heard they were two completely different categories. I thought pop was like Modanna and Britney Spears, and rock was something like Metallica. Because pop and rock are grouped together, I have to listen to an hour of buckcherry and Nickelback on the radio just to hear a decent rock song.

    This is a reason I am so thankful for the internet. I have discovered so many bands that I love today from online radio stations, and I know I would never had found these musicians if it weren't for the internet. If it weren't for online radio stations that cater to my likes, I may have ended up being an emo fan or something.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Lately I have been listening to a lot of Tool and Nine Inch Nails. I never used to like Nine Inch Nails, but something about them has grown on me.

    (older)I've been listening to Metallica's first three albums a lot lately too, and I'm starting to check out some Megadeth. I could never really stand the lead singer, but I heard one of their songs I liked at a Ben + Jerry's a few weeks ago, so I'm giving them a listen.
