From this to that

It’s no lie that record companies have formulated music and took it to a level of factory reproduction.  Once someone does something interesting that is influential or breaking new ground the record companies are fast to jump on it using unknown arists and hoisting them up high with the hype to make it seem as if their music sounds better with a “big production.”  I’ve seen styles bitten forever but at some point one gets tired of seeing a less impressive reproduction all the time.  The cookie cutter outline given these days is less about art rather than what sells.  Even bands who were once known for making music that spoke of the times are now finding a gimmick that they can reproduce without much time nor effort.  Has artist integrity been compromised completely?  Is music today no longer about the quality of the record rather than selling the records?  Punk these days has gone from The Sex Pistols to Good Charolette?  what the fuck?  Alternative has gone from The Smashing Pumpkins to My Chemical Romance?  Gay.  HIp hop from Wu-Tang to Soulja Boy… sweet Jesus.  And some how we buy it as if we’re not getting a lesser quality for our money.  

Billy Corgan and his band the smashing pumpkins have totally been ripped off by the bullshit of My Chemical Romance, which it seems 15 year old girls are into but for steady listeners of alternative music the change is almost unbearable.  The influence isn’t even subtle…

and now for the lamer version…

Here’s the classic Sex Pistols, Icons of punk rock that have pioneered the way for many artists to follow such as RANCID, AGENT ORANGE, etc… oh yeah and not to mention the ultimate punk band… Good charolette (pure sarcasm) 

and now lets update punk…

Finally for Hip hop its understandable that the music has gone back to the club because that’s originally where it started but where did lyricism go?  straight out the window thats where.  Before rappers used whit and metaphor to get their point across and to tell a story of their time, now the only things that are said are what can be stuck in your head forever lick a goddamn tv jingle.  You cant turn on the radio without hearing crap… god modern music killed the radio… 

and now the direction of hip hop is…

 

Now i know that there are artist putting out good work these days but they’re not getting the recognition the once did nor the attention they deserve, and radio air time is reserved for those who aren’t necessarily good but rather who sells… and how does something so poor sell so much?  god its a vicious cycle of fecal matter… like watching shit get flushed down a toilet.

  1. I agree, music nowadays has definitely gone to hell. First of all, I wouldn’t call Good Charlotte punk haha. I think they fall under the same category as Fall Out Boy, Panic at The Disco blah blah blah. Secondly, Bullet With Butterfly Wings is a kick ass song. And lastly, especially with current rap music, it is all about the image and sales rather than the quality of the product. It’s all about celebrity, and people eat it up.

    Pop Punk, the equivalent to bubblegum rap.

    Music is music. If it has a nice rhythm and a good beat, i think its a good song and those that have meaningful or story-telling lyrics are great songs.
