At least you have a reason, most of the people I know don't like someone because they are different. Like have you heard of The Features?

Did you really say the Vines were taking risks?

Listen you, by the grace of god, were blessed to have found this place. Everyone comes here listening to their local KROQ offspring, and knowing classic rock, new **** and little else.

Im not going to blow my own horn here, but if you asked Me, Rise Against, Misfits, and Boo boo what bands were really a breath of fresh air in music today, you'd easily get 40 diffrent bands...at the very least.

MB is a portal to music you didn't know existed before, all you have to do is say something like "I really like [band] because of [reason] and we could **** out 14 bands that may do something similar but not at all the same.

Music's dead if you listen to corporate play lists, but in the seedy nightclub underbelly of music, there lies a heartbeat of passionate music and the deathrattle of of the corporate behemoth.

Its actually not that bad right now, if your 14 today, then you missed the horrid stretch of 98-01. Todays music seen is far more varied (even on three-peice suit radio) and its in no way dying.

first of all, exactly how far back in the day are you referring? and second, no i don't agree, there's been a stead stream of crappy commercialized pop music for decades, it's only more moticable now with easier means of communication through mass media, and creations like mtv and muchmusic (for those of us in canada). Inspired and innovative music still exists, we just don't hear it played on the radio 100000 times a day or see the videos constantly replayed on TV.

True, i think everyone likes bands that no one else cares about, i mean i bring up obscure bands from the 70s like Focus and Gentle Giant, and people dont know what the hell im talking about, yet a lot of the bands i see mentioned on this forum i have never heard of in my life, its pretty ironic.

on the contrary, i think music now is becoming quite fresh and exciting. you've just got to look for it.

So should we assume he's talking mainstream or altogether?

MUSIC is not dead, its just 99% of mainstream music is nostalgic recycled crap. notice how if theres one band that comes into the mainstream with a fresh sound, sooner or later theres a few thousand of them that just sound the same? ex. the entire seattle grunge scene in the early 90s (although i like grunge), or green day followed by blink followed by NFG etc... or creed, followed by nickelback followed by default followed by a bunch of other muffled bastards droning generic lyrics over an all too familiar song. as many people have said, most corporate radio stations and record labels simply use this years "hot button" to make as much money as they can, until theres another trend, then again they latch on. my advice is to just dig deep to find something original that makes you shake. so no, i dont beleive music is dead, and i dont think it will ever die, as long as theres a kid with an open mind, something to say and an instrument to speak through, there will be passion and originality in music.
