Music is music people! Let people listen to what they want to! You shouldn’t have to change yourself to fit under a certain label.
Personally I don’t listen to Avril Lavigne; I don’t like how edited her voice is, but come on people. This Anti-Avril thing is getting really fucking annoying. For one, I’d much rather hear a little girl say she like Avril Lavigne then say they liked Britney Spears, because she’s not a Barbie doll. Also, people are going to like what they like, why should t be so bad that someone like her music?
I haven’t really given Simple Plan or Good Charlottes music a chance, but I know someone who loves them, and for some reason people think this makes him a poser. Posing as what? That’s one thing I don’t understand. Another is this; punk is supposed to rebel again society, I don’t believe it does that anymore. It’s just another part of society now. If punk was still punk, then wouldn’t someone who listens to what they like and acts how they want, regardless of what a small group of society thinks, be more punk then those who say their punk because they listen to only what that group of people says is punk? So how does listening to what you like make you a poser? What are you posing as.. Yourself?! Think people! Seriously!
Stop harassing people for being themselves! Music is music, let people listen to what they want to listen to!

whatever, guys. she's shy of 15; let her rant, or even placate her by pointing out that most 15-yr-olds aren't that articulate or observant.

"posing as what" has always been my favourite question with which to respond to "poser" accusations.

This is one of the main reasons why I am Anti-RIAA. The main one is the protection of copyright law.

did i say he thought he was punk?? he doesnt dress punk, he doesnt act punk, he doesnt say his music is punk. he gets harassed simply for listening to the music he likes!
i hate when people say "real music" because its all a matter of opinion. there is no fake music. as i said before, music is music.

no idiot real music is when the music matters more than the image, and although there have been a couple bands to come through in my opinion is that the last real thing in music was nirvana...even though i dont really listen to them all that much, they were real music and pretty much with kurt cobains death, well music died for the last 10 years

yes, alot of the music thats being pumped out today is just the same old shit recycled. and yeah, nirvana was a brilliant band, kurt cobian was a genius, and yeah, i doubt there is, or will be, a musician that can compare. and yes, i am an idiot.
but that wasnt the point of this thread. im not saying "yeah, simple plan, good charlotte and avril rock!" in fact, i personally think they suck. i think those where record deals stolen from artists out there who actually do have talent, that actually can write.
but my point was that i dont see why people cant just deal with the fact that music is music, whether you consider it real or not. there are people out there who love it, yeah, you hate it. so what? does it make someone a poser (poseing as what im still confused about, perhaps thats what you should be explaining) simply for listening to something that is what you consider crap?

I just listened to Nirvana for the first time ever about two weeks ago. Needless to say, I'm a convert.

There has never been a band as good since...now it's all about promoting little rich kids with no talent. Why must the RIAA rule music here in America?

I was listening to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" for about an hour today while I was posting on WTF and looking at computer parts for my shitbox. The song just never gets old. It's the first song I've heard where it's just as fun to listen to now as it was when I first got it...in fact, it's better.

I downloaded Me Inside by Slipknot the same day, and that wore off within three days...lost all of it's juice.

We need more talent in the musical genepool.

Someone who likes music such as Good Charlotte is generally looked down upon because the band really doesn't have much talent, and any music professor can tell you that. If you look at System of a Down or The Beatles, they were successfully able to integrate the drum beat with the music, and did not need it to keep the song in sync. I only know of one band that did not integrate the drum beat and who's music still lives on, and that is, obviously, Nirvana. There are only a select few bands out there who are able to create music so perfect that it lives on even after it is dead, and these three are some of the few. Why?

System of a Down:

-Has unique sounding vocals with extraordinary lyrics, whose topics are usually about current events. This allows newbies to the band and old timers to either learn about the past, or relive it.
-Is made up of people who are good enough at making music to be able to play it in perfect sync without the beat of a drum to guide them.
-Has a varying range of styles...each song sounds unique in it's own way.

The Beatles:

-Has beautiful sounding vocals and meaningful lyrics, which range from storytelling to issues with life
-Does not need to use drums to keep them in sync
-Every song sounds unique. One even uses an Indian instrument!

Nirvana:
-Has excellent, vivid lyrics, with great vocals (although Kurt's signing is a little off), and dyanmic vocal tones
-One of the few bands to actually successfully pull off superb music without having an integrated drum beat
-Songs range from peaceful to hardcore, to both
-The vocals and guitar intensity are perfectly matched
-Has a sound that no other band has even come close to replicating. Cover copies fail in comparison (such as Type O Negative's cover copy).

After viewing this list, isn't it easy to see why these bands live on?

I admire your discussion because I think that you all have some valid points. I think loser has a point. It is true that all music can be looked at in perspective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder- so bravo to loser for bringing up some good points and who cares if she’s 15. I worked as a music producer in the pop industry and let me tell you I saw the ugly side of music. It is true that this industry has become very materialistic but we must not forget why people actually get into album making. People get into album making for the love of the music. No one would ever make it as far as bands like nirvana did if they didn’t love music but my point is neither would Christina Agulara or Britney spears. I encourage you people to seriously explore the music scene out there today and look up some bands because there are allot of really great musicians out there today. I just saw BB king (a god in the blues world) live and it was amazing seeing that 78 year old man play as well as he can. Anyway, if you want some suggestions i would be glad to help you. Just pick your genre.
