The legions of Cap'n Jazz rip off bands. Some are good like Snowing, but most of 'em bite the big one.

If all you hear is the same ol' **** and not finding anything interesting in modern-day hip-hop/rap (the "gOOd" stuff yah know) there are two outcomes for you: one, you hate hip-hop/rap so much that you'll never have an ascetic for it (which there is nothing wrong with that) orrrr you're not looking hard enough, which I would encourage you to look(listen)!

I don't agree with anyone saying that radio is a crime against music. In its purest form, publicly funded radio, allows local and national artists on the rise to get their music out there and supply music with out commercials (or very, very limited commercials). But one thing that is terrible about 98% of radio stations out there is that their playlists are controlled by corporations. Overplayed music stems from media-uppities trying to shove their dividend payments, stock prices, and their annual bonus down the nation/world's throat. The media-kings have a bias...their wallets. Most people that I know are not like the MB community, those that are looking for a greater fulfillment out of music than just passively listening to songs while you're on your drive to work and just happen to catch 4 or 5 words out of the chorus. And to the average music listener they would (or at least I would assume) like whatever they hear on a regular basis on main-stream radio. I think that corporate playlists are a major contributor to terrible tastes in music and if they didn't exist I think that the music world would be so much better than its present state.

How on earth are Metallica a crime against music? Sure there's better metal bands, but they are still one of the most influential bands of the last 30 years. Are you just naming bands you dislike?

True. I am mainly speaking about mainstream radio however. Not to mention while some bands get noticed, others get neglected. I find that mediocrity is often more known and praised than genius and artistic value. But I am just be biased. After all, it depends on the person's outlook on what is good and bad, or innovative or monotonous.

I also disagree with the mention of Metallica. First things first, I also may not be a fan, but they can play circles around many other bands, and the Classical music adaptations prove where the songs can go beyond the Rock form. The early/Cliff (my opinion, best) days also have proven a MAJOR step for Metal, especially when it concerned breaking Metal away from The Hair Crue and into something with more street-level aggression in The States, where it was really needing something for the longest of times thanks to a group of fans who aligned themselves with Motorhead, Maiden, Diamond Head, and others, usually going into stores ready to sell the latest Imports. Their Post-Black Album releases may have been disappointing, but there's no denying the influence of the early albums.

Verdict: Not Guilty, especially with their '83-'89 releases.
