Default Do music fans put too much stock in originality

I was thinking in other mediums this doesn't seem to be as big a deal Game of Thrones is nothing new for literature but nobodies complaining you know

should it be enough that the music just sounds good

It's ironic that you of all people would start this thread.

But you also rip on almost everything else relating to what people consider original and influential.

well yeah Im gonna rip on bands that people think are original but are really not

if you're selling them on originality

popular music tends to be up to a decade behind underground music that's just the nature of it

So then you start a thread negating your own opinion. Interesting.

?

I like Smashing Pumpkins. Not because they're original, but because they made some good tunes.

If someone tried to tell me Smashing Pumpkins invented shoegaze I'd rip on that so hard yeah

And I do rip on Corgan because he wants so bad for people to think of him like David Bowie

I don't care about originality in music at all. If it's good, I like it. I mean, there are bands that I enjoy because they're doing something new or unique, but for the most part it doesn't really bug me. A lot of grind, death metal and black metal tends to sound similar, so the chances of finding something completely new and unique within those subgenres is fairly thin, but I still love them.

I crack out on trashy pop more than I do more "serious" music, but I probably listen to "serious" music more, just not in as frantic bursts. So I could give a **** about originality until it's time for me to care.
