This is the stuff I find COMPLETELY fascinating. With all types of music, you'll find people who absolutely hate it. This very often has not too much to do with the actual music and so much to do with everything that was happening around it. people who went off grunge after nirvana, people here who are off rave by association, people who hate country and Irish, metal, pop etc etc. Like its impossible by the sheer nature of music to disassociate things completely because of how it hits the brain and where it goes when it is in there, but still, amazing that something that essentially is almost identical (heavy beats, distorted melodies and chords, shouting men) can cause such polarization. there is really fuck all between them, fuck all. If it makes you angry you need to address your teens, not use a genre for a crutch like.
those two were awful examples, i'm a bit rushed this mornign.Haha!!! I never liked rave music because I thought it was shit,nothing to do with people.
Funnily enough,I always thought alice in chains were shit too.
That's a tough one, because I've been into thinking about this for at least a decade so I have a lot of 'listen without association' going on. I'm more likely to dislike the ethics behind music now. The generic acoustic noodling that comes free with youtube that soundtracks thousands of videos, that annoys me because of what it is. I still watch the videos. I dislike some avant gard stuff when it comes from a place of non communication and is more an academic exploration. Electronic music with no dissonance i think might be potentially unhealthy, but there is very little that'll make me knee jerk these days.
Yeah but we have to watch the schoolyard fights happen on twitterDo teenagers still have the tribal mentality when it comes to music?
Our latest crew have the semblance of a generation raised on time life compilations. It's crazy.Yeah but we have to watch the schoolyard fights happen on twitter
I think their tastes have gone the same way of adults (because of Spotify): very genre broad but mostly quite genre shallow as a result. The attention economy vs. the lack of anything to do we had.
I only heard maniac 2000 for the first time ever about 18 months ago.I associate that time with lots of people I knew fucking themselves up on drugs and it was largely due to the scene that was created around the music of the time. The Prodigy were an integral part of that. And underworld. And maybe it's by association rather than their actual music, but I despised everything about that scene (including the bands) back then.
Apart from Maniac 2000. That was great.
