Ok, there is a lot of stuff in "popular music" that I just don't get. (Before I go on and possibly get railed for this post, I want to say I hold the utmost respect for these genre's and artists.) Right off the top, U2. I don't get it. I don't really like their music, I don't really like Bono, although, I do think he does great things for AIDS awareness. I just don't see why they're so awsome. I do think they were a whole lot better way back in the day and "Discotech" was a great song. But after all that... not really. ____core. Emo, scream, art, metal, death, speed... whatever. I don't like anything-core bands. In all of their respective genre's they all sound the same. At least to me they do. Not to mention some of their shtick. Like the looks and what. Let's call a spade a spade, if they have good music, I'm all for it. But I just don't get the neo 80's glam look thing going on with some of these guys. I don't care much for pop punk either. The music is fine, it's the high pitched whinny guys screaming about bad girlfriends.... Or is it me? Last, I don't really understand the hip-hop where the dudes just talk about 'they bitches and ho's' or 'they guns and s***, yo'. I thought the rap from NWA and Ice T was awsome man. Real stuff. Not to mention, some of the groove of those artists tunes were just awsome. So is it me? Am I the only one who just doesn't get it? It's not that I don't like it, I just don't get it. Makes no sense to me.
