Indie stuff will forever stay underground or just bubbling under the charts.

Go look at the Billboard Top 50 if you need help.
Fugazi got to #1 on the Independent albums chart. Lots of indie artists crack the top 100 too.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

There are far more casual music listeners than there are internet music heads like us. Of course I am going to ignore them.

Crack the Billboard Hot 100 or the Independent charts?

There's a lot of in between from casual music listeners and Internet music heads. Ignoring everything but the people who do nothing to drive the music world is sticking your head in the sand.

Look at the poll. Are 100% of music needs just entirely deluded? Maybe it's the seven that voted no that are being ignorant.

The poll is off because most people look at the title and say yes it's relevant because they love certain classical pieces and I willing to bet that hardly anyone that voted in the poll paid any attention to the OP.

It's the reason that we keep going back and forth and why I keep referencing the "today's music" aspect which would consist of Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100.

The people that voted yes are classical music fans but it doesn't address the main point that BD was trying to get across. I wish she would come back to join in on this debate and clarify it a bit more in the later pages.

WHY or WHY NOT?

I know there are not a whole lot of people on MB who are active listeners of classical music, at least not to the extent that I am. But I know you all have opinions on everything else music related, so I'd like to hear your answer to my question.

EDIT: I have included a poll to get a more specific consensus, but I really encourage you to discuss why you voted YES or NO in this thread and why.

You must be interpreting this question differently than me.

What do you think she's trying to say?

Break it down, I'm all ears.

Answer this for me. I'd like to hear your why or why not as well.

I say, no. In terms of classical music, I think it's in it's own niche. Stuff like indie has it's own place and it is wildly popular, but you won't find too many people that regularly listen to classical anymore and it doesn't influence music as much anymore.

Yes, you'll still find classical radio stations and whatnot, but can you honestly name a lot of people who listen to it on the regular? Outside of like, band students, people who play classical music, etc.?

In that sense I think jazz has systematically replaced it as art music.
