I reckon Zlad's Electronik Supersonik is the right up there in the musical hell stakes.

I would say Linkin Park is my most hated artist.

"I have met a lot people who are too lazy to understand music with deep lyrics, my best friend would be one of them, but most people probably never even heard of good music with deep lyrics and dismisses all music with decent lyrics as "lame music for boring pessimistic people". The radio plays a very important factor in causing this ignorance, since the radio is controlled by "the big four" record labels and all the music they are trying to sell has no lyrics at all. Mainstream hip hop would be a very good example, listen to any hip hop song on itunes and all you hear is :" I have a lot money and have sex with a lot of honeys". The media have pushed the mainstream image upon the teenagers and made them believe that they are nothing without money or fame, aka a nobody."

This is a rather well known book that is read by students in most USA middle schools with which I am familiar.  After a number of weeks are taken to read, discuss, and assimilate the book, the Coppola directed movie is then shown. It is a very good book, and so is the movie.  Students invariably like both.


we read it in canada as well.

Not only are they rife with the n word and profanities (I don't have a problem with them but ask your Mom if she does),  but they promote the same overwhelmingly negative lifestyle that the majority of iTunes Hip Hop Top 10 artists do. For example in his song "Crossing the Boundary" he says: If you're p***** off cos you think that I dissed you, I rape your Moms n**** and make this a personal issue". In the same song he says: "I end your life n**** don't f*** around with me". It doesn't matter whether the lyrics are said in a joking manner, they are simply shameful.

 

It's funny nowadays as you see more and more 13-15 year olds jumping on lesser-known (not underground) hip hop. In every case, they say that what they listen to is 'real' hip hop not that mainstream bulls***. Immortal Technique is one of the first rappers these kids jump on, as he often promotes himself as underground and anti-mainstream; these kids wanting so much to be unique obviously think that is cool. It's frankly dangerous that impressionable young kids are taking his lyrics to heart, you can see that in Parall3l's best Immortal Technique impression:

 

"I have met a lot people who are too lazy to understand music with deep lyrics, my best friend would be one of them, but most people probably never even heard of good music with deep lyrics and dismisses all music with decent lyrics as "lame music for boring pessimistic people". The radio plays a very important factor in causing this ignorance, since the radio is controlled by "the big four" record labels and all the music they are trying to sell has no lyrics at all. Mainstream hip hop would be a very good example, listen to any hip hop song on itunes and all you hear is :" I have a lot money and have sex with a lot of honeys". The media have pushed the mainstream image upon the teenagers and made them believe that they are nothing without money or fame, aka a nobody."

 

I am no fan of most mainstream music and I don't agree with radio either. But these statements are getting more common, and hence more repetitive and monotonous. People should be allowed to listen to what they want as long as it doesn't have a negative impact on themselves as humans and the community as a whole. It is only natural for many rappers to talk about money because (sorry for being stereotypical) the majority of rappers didn't grow up in an environment where there was a lot of money. I do however think that due to the exposure that mainstream music gets, they should not flaunt about how many girls that they can have sex with.

 

In terms of Dead Prez: over time I feel that their subject matter has become more cliched and laughable. I admit that their debut release was musically listenable, and lyrically alright, but some of the songs were poorly written. On 'They Schools', M1 and stic.man attack the US school system and whilst some of their arguments are sound, others are just stupid. The song starts off with "Man that school s*** is a joke. The same people who control the school system control the prison system and the whole social system, ever since slavery". Not only is referring to slavery (yet again) inappropriate, it links two unrelated topics together, blaming the failed schooling system on racism. The whole song in fact blames the two rappers' school experience on racism, and although some of it may be true, it is not valid to say that many African Americans aren't getting a good enough education based wholly on racism. It's the same reason why many other Americans aren't bothered with education: laziness.

 

As is said so many times: music is subjective. The only type of music I feel that should be exempt from this statement is those with negative lyrics. It is not a requirement for good music to have good lyrics, its all in opinion; why do you think that instrumental jazz is one of the most successful genres of all time? Yes it's true that if a singer/rapper is going to open his/her mouth, what comes out should differentiate him/her from the average person (i.e. they should be talented), but not everyone feels that way and this is the main reason why mainstream music is so popular.

 

And finally: mainstream music should not be generalized as unintelligent and 'bad'. There is no doubt that people like Jay-Z and Kanye West are talented, (particularly the latter as he is a top 10 Hip Hop producer of all time) so why should they not be regarded in the same band as other hip hop greats like Nas, Black Thought, GZA and Common.

 

Sorry for going massively off-topic but it had to be said.

 


I respect your opinions but it seems like we have different connotations of "deep lyrics", to me, any kind of lyrics that is about things that matter or includes strong emotions is deep. Not every song by Immortal technique has deep lyrics (to me) but there are a few that is deep. Such as "dance with the devil" or "crimes of the heart". I'm listening to crossing the boundary again right now and I agree that the lyrics are not some thing I would let a little kid listen to. But if you think that the mainstream hip hop artists are the same then I should remind you that songs such as "sweat" (the explicit and original version is called "wet") and "take your shirt off" did make it to the top ten (I think, they were played on the radio as well) and those songs are a lot worse (IMO). As for mainstream music, I'm simply judging it by the stuff I occasionally hear on the radio or from the people around me, "party rock anthem" would the one that i constantly hear and I do not consider that as something that is very intelligent, but, again this is all opinions.

though i agree with you i feel i can't find myself getting into any hip hop or rap. electronic is also quite hard for me to get into. as for metal a few bands i strongly dislike are

 

Avenged Sevenfold

korn

slipknot

 

practically all the ones which are just chug-chug-chug. i like guitar riffs and nothing but breakdowns is boring to me.

 

im a metalhead by the way and of bands which are in the list of genres i really enjoy i don't like are

behemoth

nile

 

i am still skeptical of bands in my own genre but at the same time i find i can get into most metal bands with time.

 

one band i enjoy which i feel has really cheesy/lame lyrics is children of bodom.

 

but back to you your free to like whatever you liek and anyone here can have an opinion of it. like i said i personally don't like rap. i find it boring but thats me.

 

have a nice day and keep enjoying what you listen to. after all we are all here to improve our enjoyment of music not to discourage people from being here because they listen to something different.

I so hate bieber - heard his retarded song when I was in the mall today.

 

If I ever see him I'd throw some eggs at him... like what happened to him when he was in Sydney earlier in the year.

I would like to mention Kid Rock.  Of all the sheer, unadulterated gall.  There have been a lot of talented rock musicians over the years, but none had the chutzpah to call themselves "Kid Rock". You can just see this guy has an inflated opinion of himself. About ten years ago he released an album call "The History of Rock", but all it contained was a remix of a bunch of his songs that never sold.  His career was going nowhere when he had a modest hit with another no-talent hack that goes by the name of Sheryl Crowe. Does he have any exceptional abilities? He married Pamela Anderson.
