Pop music is by nature disposable. Huge short-term popularity, very little staying power. He's upset that the trends have passed him by. I doubt he would have mentioned anything about "the exciting world underneath the charts" back when his band was soft rocking all over Clear Channel.

Thing is, he's right. There are a ton of bands that are amazing that don't get anywhere near the charts or terrestrial radio. But the way he said it is rather douchey.

In the 80s there was a ton of awesome pop music that is still very listenable.

There was some decent pop music in the 90s. Some.

In the 00s...just...no.

This decade...Hell no.

Jubeebee: Pop music is by nature disposable.


Not true.

Popular music can be quite well made, like Greensleeves.Then it will stick around forever because it's actually good.

On the other hand, the music industry doesn't reward talent with contracts. Rather they take homogenous and use payola to flood the airwaves with it.

As the internet continues to suck the life out of that buisness model, I predict you'll see a lot more bands with genuine skill topping the charts as opposed to the AKB48s of the world.

There was a whole lot of bad in the 80s that you've forgotten. Pop has always been mostly crap with good stuff mixed in. The good stuff survives and later becomes known as the only stuff played during that decade by geezers from that decade.

Your love of '80s music renders your opinion invalid. It was farking terrible and '90s music, mediocre as it was, was a huge improvement.

There's a glut of dull BS like Keane is putting out too. The bottom line is there is simply a massive bunch shiat in the world of music. However, this is nothing new.

All of those are listed as indie rock except Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (indie pop). Pop music refers more towards the stuff 14-year-old girls are likely to squeal over. (see Bieber, One Direction)

seems like "post rock" to me, like "Explosions in the Sky"-ish, but that's the real problem.

I know people need to fit things in boxes, but music evolves at a rate that what one song or band is one week is something else the next, so it ends up making little sense. In the early 60's, the Beetles were pop. In what way are they musically anything like Lady Gaga? Or Arcade Fire? How are The Temper Trap and Ke$ha musically similar? They're not, but they all fall under "pop".

Actually, I just checked, and wikipedia calls Arcade Fire and The Temper Trap "indie rock", but Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is "indie pop"... for whatever that's worth.

So is it Caco-Cola, Dr. Pupper, Papsi, Montana-Dew, Sprate, Captus Cooler, Murg Root Beer, or Flanta that's topping these fake-pop charts?
 
2012-05-09 07:19:09 PM
Am I the only who thinks that now is the best time ever to be a music fan? There's readily accessible music catering to every genre imaginable. Yeah, there's some shiatty pop music out there, but there has always been shiatty pop music. "Who put the bop in the bopshebopshebop"? "I am the walrus, coocookachoo"? "I'm Too Sexy"?

In terms of breadth though, people have never been able to access such a diverse array of music. I love it.

I like Keane. I haven't heard their new album yet, but even if it is utter dogshiat the fact remains that Tom Chaplain doesn't need autotune because he can sing like a motherfarker. That makes them better than 99% of the crap being churned out.
 
2012-05-09 07:23:37 PM
Keane's highest-charting song was "Somewhere Only We Know" at #50 on February 26, 2005. Even on their best day, they couldn't make more appealing-to-the-masses pop than Mario's "Let Me Love You" (#1), Gwen Stefani's "Rich Girl" (#10), Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" (#15), Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved" (#23), Goo Goo Doll's "Give a Little Bit" (#37) or even Ciara's "Goodies" (#47).

If you're going to use the charts, you might as well just STFU, Keane.
