The tricky thing with dubstep is that it's a great magnet for visceral listeners; people who are there to feel the music, rather than critically listen to it. It's hard to find true reviews of dubstep, and I'll be the first to say that I'm not even sure on the best way to judge it; it's an amorphous genre at the moment.

Dubstep is just a prefix which ****ty artists get their tracks remixed to a brand new audience and it is certainly NOT a rebellion against Pop music, it probably is the new Pop music unfortunately.

I like the original incarnation of Dubstep so I am completely puzzled how such a niche genre became something else entirely and permeates music so much and not in a good way.

Wubba Wubba basslines are not Dubstep. It's the whole Trance Remix of a track that was big in the late 90's all over again.

But pop music itself is liked by most people, because the patterns in the melody and chord progressions are simple and easy. This means the brain can predict what comes next, and this is why pop music is liked, because it's predictable.
Pop music is targeted to music. Good job, bro.
Anyway, it is scientifically proven that listening to predictable chord patterns increases the amount of dopamine produced, just like some types of drugs do. But pop music is, in fact, a genre (it even has subgenres), highly based on such chord patterns.. The term "pop music" is commonly used as a abbreviation for "popular music", though, which can include everything from rock to hip-hop.

I hope people know that traditional (pre brostep) dubstep is basically pretty much music built on a formula. Pop music, to a lesser extent, is also built on a formula. I would say that because dubstep is literally completely formulated music, that listening to it to "rebel" against pop would be hypocritical.

Also, what's getting on my nerves is people who think all electronic music is dubstep. I went onto /mu/ today and had some kid say that Aphex is dubstep because "his beats are harsh" or something idiotic. I've seen a music review site list Autechre's new album as dubstep. I think people are forgetting that dubstep isn't squeals and squelchy wubs and was once actually a respectable-- if formulaic genre.
