ZeroCorpse: Heavy Metal is angry, childish noise for adolescent boys and men who are hanging onto their youth.Pop is mechanically-separated, sugar-coated piss in the ears of the mundane audience that adores it.Hip-Hop is stolen rock and electronica licks with incredibly dumb, marble-mouthed idiots shouting vain obscenities over it.Dubstep is the noise a synthesizer makes when you beat it with a rock and then flip the arpeggio on "auto loop" for fifteen minutes.Country is steel guitars and drums playing the same blues riff while a redneck whines about his dog, girl, truck, or politics.Acid Jazz is what happens when you throw a jazz band into a meat grinder connected to an amp.Blues is one song with different words.J-Pop is one song with different-but-similar words.Modern R&B is the auto-tuned advertising jingle for the town harlot.Classical is old white guys playing scales on ancient instruments for three hours.Everybody knows the only real music is New Age./Everyone's music sucks.//Kanye West's most of all.
kab: Birnone: Guitar rock had its time and that time is over. Popular music, as in music that sells, hasn't been based on guitar performance for a long time now. The stuff people are pointing to(BRMC and the like) are obscure niche acts in the big picture.If you were to name the most influential rock guitar players, you'll notice that once you get past Eddie Van Halen the pickings are really slim. He hit the scene over 30 years ago. Oh, I'm sure you can name your favorite, and very talented, innovators from the last 15 or 20 years, but they are influencing no one of any relevance. It's not influential when the only people hearing it and being influenced by it are people within that particular subculture.Not sure I agree with this at all. Musical influence rarely has much to do with popularity, though the two can indeed coincide. John McLaughlin, for example, is a pretty big influence to folks who are considered "good" today, and it's more than likely that all of his career has flown under the radar of popularity.And relevance in music is a pointless topic to begin with.
somemoron: As someone who loves guitar rock, THIS. Grunge, Rap, Hip-Hop and what have you did NOT kill guitar rock. Guitar Rock killed itself. Hair band overload became bland, predictable formulaic garbage. Winger, Poison, Cinderella... just nails in the coffin. As least Def Leppard was original when they did it. After a while, though, everything sounded the same, more or less. *sigh*Get the fark off my lawn.\Please note that I did not say these bands sucked - my opinion is mute on that. They are very good technicians. Just uninspired. I still love guitar rock, but good God man, stop with the copy/paste
BrotherKalashnikov: Short answer:noLong answer:nooooooooooooooooooooooooWill it undergo a decline in importance and relevance as the world moves on,and the musical tastes of people all over the world fragment and Balkanize?Sure,so? It's all cyclical anyway.
