Default Music's dead.

Does anyone else agree that music is much more dull and unenthusiastic as it once was back in the day? Doesn't anyone think that artists don't pull so many risks, or write good songs anymore?...

(With the exception of a few bands: SOAD, Vines...etc.)

Yes, music is starting to decay. There needs to be someone to come along and revitalize it. But the problem lies in the public. Their musical taste buds have been slowly numbed from years of a decline is creativity and the fact that everything has become so readily avalible. I know some people that instead of going to concerts the will buy the live DVD or watch it on T.V. and if that is what is happening right now wait another 5 years and watch ticket sales decline to honest shows.

It's us. Not us specifically, but the public in general.

A band as good as Led Zeppelin could come along and we'd winge that they're too much like Led Zeppelin.

Heck I'd put a million bucks on the fact that there is another Led Zeppelin out there but no one is willing to sign them up because they aren't Nickelback enough.

Rise made some good mentions but outside of the US, how big are they? Because over here we haven't heard of them and it's not the bands fault, just no one is willing to promote "original" bands worldwide.

Music isn't dead, it's the record execs for the all the major labels who are dead. None of them are willing to take risks signing bands that they don't think will be #1 on the top 40. Amazing bands are left singing to indie labels where they get little to no marketing, and so the general public never hears a peep about them (in most cases).

Music isnt dead, its just average bands who make a lot of money for imitating other bands, because being retro is whats hot, not doing something new and innovative, thats why all the most popular bands are retro. Jet(imitating AC/DC), The Darkness(imitating Queen), Interpol(imitating Joy Devision), The Vines(imitating Nirvana), The Hives(imitating The Rolling Stones), The Killers(imitating Duran Duran) and Franz Ferdinand(whoever they are imitating, they are the worst band ever). Its about corperate magazines like rolling stone and bloated record companys who try to push the image that Rock N Roll covers all music, which is a lie. Rock N Roll has become crap, in order for music to progress, Rock N Roll needs to die.
