Suckmaster Burstingfoam: What's Skrillex? Is that like digital hardcore?
AverageAmericanGuy: If it's too loud, you're too old.Skrillex isn't for you to sit down and relax to. It's to get your body moving on the dance floor. He's a genius at his craft untalented douche.
Ed Willy: SubbyScientists from the Department of Obvious find that loud, obnoxious, rebellious music is preferred by loud, obnoxious, rebellious teenagers. Skrillex immediately returns to studio to produce another "album"This study sponsored by the Belt Onion Association of America
fusillade762: Suckmaster Burstingfoam: What's Skrillex? Is that like digital hardcore?Dubstep. Or so I've heard. I've been really out of the electronic music scene for the past 15 years or so.
HotWingAgenda: When I was in high school, the people that listened to the loudest, most obnoxious and rebellious music were the metalheads and goths. And they were all extremely quiet and polite when not at concerts.All the adults I know that listen to metal are super mild-mannered with successful careers and families.

Ishkur: AverageAmericanGuy: Skrillex isn't for you to sit down and relax to. It's to get your body moving on the dance floor. He's a genius at his craft.Skrillex is boring and his music is for k-holes.
theMightyRegeya: I don't like dubstep, but I'm willing to bet some of the people here dissing it were fans of this:[images.theage.com.au image 420x279]
Ishkur: "It found 12-year-olds with strong preferences for hip-hop, heavy metal, gothic and trance music got in trouble at age 12 and at age 16.""Conversely, 12-year-olds who listened to R&B, rock, punk and techno showed no rebellious behaviour at the younger age, but did when they got to age 16."heh.Interesting that the researchers -- and the article writer -- felt fit to actually differentiate between the two. You don't normally see that in media.Of course, it's still not certain what criteria they're using. When they say techno, do they mean actual Detroit techno or everything else that they've been mislabelling as techno for the past 20 years? ....and which genre of trance? The trippy psychedelic goa stuff or the anthemic euro disney cheese stuff?Of course, the REAL problem with attributing delinquency with music taste is the fact that 12 year olds are about as experienced in music as they are in sex. At age 12 and under, the two most dominant musical influences tend to be family (parents early on, and older siblings later) and media (television/radio). 12 year olds don't really have a standard of comparison to know what they like and don't like so they always sponge off whatever is exposed to them in their limited social spheres (home/school). Pop music is VERY accessible to 12 year olds because it is the most digestible -- it is simple, shallow pap with easily understandable lyrics and sing-a-long melodies. Children cling to it as they would their training wheels when they first learn to ride a bike.At age 16, a child's music choices broaden thanks to larger/more social circles (high school, sports, activities, parties/dances, etc.) but they are still no better off when they were 12 and most of them haven't developed their own musical identity yet (a lot of teenagers haven't even found themselves much less their favorite music). Pop/Top40 is always the null hypothesis.The age at which someone is actually mature enough to leave the nest of commercial musi ...
drateR: So what's the difference...honestly. Techno, trance, dubstep... Don't know, don't really care, but would like to know what the difference is.
AverageAmericanGuy: Ah, the opinion of someone who knows fark-all about techno music.
The Man Who Laughs: So I was playing Far Cry 3, and I'm at the part where you need to torch the weed fields, and the game starts blasting this annoying as shiat high pitched screech techno with some Jamaican singing, and I think to myself "this would be super fun if it wasn't for that goddamn music". Later on when I finish the game and see the credits, I realize that was one of Skrillex's "songs". Or are they all called tracks now? I don't know. All I know is, fark that guy. I don't care if it makes me sound old or un-hip, he needs to stay his ass away from whatever it is that he thinks he's doing./amusing anecdote, amigo

stiletto_the_wise: [images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 500x500]Everyone who loves electronic music, in any form, trance, house, techno, ambient, industrial, dubstep, anything... owes a ton to these guys.
jtown: I wish I could find that strip where Calvin is playing Easy Listening music on his record player while his parents are retching in the background. "I play it real quiet, too."
