You know, I love music.... but I don't like hearing the same shit over and over. That is the same for a lot of people. I can tell you though the state of the music industry is frustrating. We see bands that get famous for no reason, or for aesthetic over musicality ( see kiss, lady gaga). In all honesty the music industry may have shared the same bullet as kurt kobain. Between the occasional Zepplin or Rush tune we have to sit through hours of over played 80's pop bullshit on the radio. Bands like the Scorpions really outstay their welcome after the 125th time you hear "hurricane" in a day.
What gives me hope is new bands coming out like Them Crooked Vultures. Bands that blend elements of new and old and create a tasteful and dare I say extremely enjoyable sound.... WE NEED MORE OF THESE!
The worst thing to happen to music in recent years.... Lady gaga and Justin bieber
Now they are marketable and that's where the appeal is in thhem which is why people dig into it so badly. Over manufactured, factory approved soundschemes where there is money to be had.... I'm telling you though, It isnt good.... Fuck the money, make music!
Your ever cynical music fan
