PostSubject: The music industry has become corrupted   Sun Aug 12, 2012 2:42 am

I think the music industry has gone to hell, since most modern mainstream music is fake, digitally enhanced, people that can't sing. Now, as a die-hard metal-fan, this thought of mine may seem obvious that I feel this way, however I'm not ignorant enough to say that it's ALL like that, some songs are still quite good. I listen to other genres from metal and classic rock. Granted, the other genres I listen to are mainly from the 50's-90's. Anyway, the music industry seems to be all about money nowadays, and it sickens me how easily someone can become a 'musician'. Years ago, people had to work hard, show their work to various record companies, just to be rejected. Those people never gave up, but nowadays it seems like you just need to go onto one of these talent shows, sing a song SOMEONE ELSE WROTE, then you get a record deal. Even metal today is starting to go downhill, with all these emo-wannabe bands like Bullet For My Valentine and BVB. I really think I was born in the wrong decade for music. Damn, I'm rambling, sorry for that.

I think the most disgusting thing is how anyone who can stay on key can become famous. Singing is a natural and pretty easy skill that if you work at it, you can sound good. To add to that, the fact that the person who is merely singing a song that someone else wrote becomes super famous to the targeted crowd rather than the writer of the song is sickening. Sure, you can have some singing talent, but that's nothing compared to the talent and hard work the writer of the song must put in. Most of the fanbase probably thinks that the singer wrote the song. I want to meet the writer of the song, not the mold-made singer. I think the whole idea of celebrities is disgusting. What makes a person so special that they should be stalked and receive special treatment? Sure, if they did something significant like, I don't know, safely landing a crashing plane full of people in the Hudson river, inventing the telephone, or even founding a city could be worth it for a while. But someone who is just following instructions someone else made for them shouldn't get that treatment. That's like celebritizing someone who set-up their computer by reading the manual.

If your friends always criticize you, anger you, and depress you, they're not really your friends. You shouldn't have to change yourself for anyone. Don't deal with the abusive relationship anymore, the denial that it will happen again. Even if they apologize, they'll get angry again and take it out on you. There comes a point where you must move on. Find people who will accept you for who you are, and those will be your friends.

The target audience will always defend their 'music', no matter how bad it is. Record companies should have medals for targeting specific audiences and playing to their mental weaknesses. Breakup songs targeted towards teenagers work because they're too stupid to know they're being had.

Exactly. These people get paid more than they're worth, they could at least write the songs they 'sing'! Take Jimi Hendrix for example, the greatest guitarist who ever lived. He wrote both his lyrics and guitar pieces on his own. And he was still able to perform amazingly. It's such a huge shame he is no longer with us Crying or Very sad

What you had said my friend something I have been saying for a long time now, there shouldn't even be a poll for this. It's what happens when you let dogs off their leash in a world they don't understand. Me and Shin have been learning music theory past month plus and its not as easy as it seems to comprehend. Yet knowing this I gain so much respect then I have ever had before. Like how same Metal and Classic is in how its developed. But people like Beibass (I nickname to protect the minds of the metalists) know nothing really of the heart and soul of it and is just the perfect example of a troll.

And what do we do with trolls? We enhance a sword to plus 4, then kill it, get the loot, wave arms in the air, and go onto next boss. Thats all he is to us. Don't think I'd even loot him.

Yet at the same time I couldn't see where else the kid can be spent doing... be funny he was a plumber... Razz

It does my heart well to see others agree. So a huge hail to thee! cheers

Sorry for bumping kind of an old thread, but here's my opinion. The OP is correct to point out that the majority of music today is awful, however I don't believe the industry has changed all that much. The goal of the music industry has always been to make as much money as possible. Everyone remembers led zeppelin, the doors, and the beatles but no-one remembers the 1240982304598 mediocre/crappy bands that tried to copy their sounds and ride their coattails. Society remembers the transcendent bands that shaped society, not the crappy one hit wonders. There has always been crappy music. Also, "cool" has changed tremendously.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, but it seems that the music that is "good" is slowly starting to fall into a gray zone between "good" and "bad". It seems like the target group is starting to give in and stop demanding quality. All they care is that there's music.

The industry has become diluted because of mass media exposure, the internet and technology. Plus since you don't need to be particularly proficient at making music to make a hit song the talent pool of artists is basically endless. Popular music changes every 6 months. Right now it's bieber, one direction and whatever else but soon it will be some different talentless good looking people. Ever since the first skrillex song, everyone with pro tools seems to think they know how to make dubstep too.
