Some under appreciated Guns n Roses
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer said: “I think music has gotten very girly. “And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment – and that’s not good.” He added that one of his sons, Elijah, “believes that a rock and roll revolution is around the corner”. And the singer said he agreed with his son that the genre “will return”.
The Evening Standard listed twitter insults that were made at Bono like;
One Twitter user posted: “1) define ‘girly’ 2) why are boys filled with rage 3) f*** off Bono.”
Another tweeted: “Bono thinks expressing emotions in a non-shouty way is ‘girly’. It’s not. This is just toxic masculinity through the lens of ‘music’ (I mean, if we’re talking metal, U2 don’t exactly cut it). Men: it is not ‘girly’ to express feelings without hitting things or yelling.”
Let me be clear I have never liked Bono or U2. For me R.E.M were always far superior but really I always liked a heavier version of rock than U2 offer. I don’t know Bono but many things I have read about him in the past made me believe he seemed a bit of a prick but this time I think Bono has a point.
Modern Music is shit, its girly, boring, lame and mostly the same. Where are bands like Nirvana, Guns n Roses, System of the down, Sex Pistols, the Prodigy and Rage against the machine? Even rap music has been tamed massively. Its like the music industry has decided that music with any kind of anger or realness to it should not be accessible. It seems that the vast majority of musicians are just puppets selling sex and their gimmicks as opposed creating new original music.
Look at males artists from Britain just lately Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Zayn Malik etc, etc they make Oasis and U2 sound like Cradle of Filth. Everything sounds like it straight from a Disney Musical.
What am I doing right now?
The answer is listening to Adele!
Why would I be listening to Adele?
I am trying to understand what this huge obsession is that so many people seem to have about Adele, “Hello” has recently hit half a billion hits on YouTube. I know modern day music is shit and Adele is undoubtedly less shit than most but I don’t think she is anything special! In fact I think she is overrated and her being so overrated is mainly due to the poor quality of corporate music, after listening to shit like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj anything that is not corporate pop shit, sounds amazing even if it is just corporate middle of the road shit.
I have never rated Adele, I’m not saying she is shit I’m just saying she ain’t as good as everyone seems to think she is. I find her music boring, soft, whiny, depressing and full of self pity, I much prefer to listen to something a little more motivational. I admit she is better than the bad bunch we have at the moment but she ain’t brilliant. All I see is a miserable fat girl singing average, middle of the road songs about being a miserable fat girl!
Call me old fashioned if like but give me Guns n Roses, Johnny Cash, Rage against the machine or the Prodigy any day and turn this self pitying shit off.
Most modern day pop music is quite lame and soulless with no real messages, this is a list of ten songs that unlike much of today’s music contains thought provoking, political messages, thought up by the performers and not the businesses they work for.
Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall
Johnny Cash – San Quentin (Live from Prison)
Immortal Technique Cause Of Death Lyrics
Sex Pistols – God Save the Queen
Malvina Reynolds – Little Boxes
Aretha Franklin – Respect  (Original Version)
Guns N’ Roses-Civil War w/Lyrics
Johnny Cash – Man in black with lyrics
Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name
How bad is new music? Is it because I am getting old or is new music horrible? I love all music from every era but now! I like Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, Robert Johnson, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash (all time fave), Pink Floyd, the Beatles, the Eagles, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, the Prodigy, Nirvana, Guns N Roses (all time fave), Michael Jackson, Green Day, Iron Maiden, Eminem (all time fave), Immortal Technique, Tupac and loads more, but modern day POP music is honestly lame. It is not because I am getting old, is it?
Nicki Minaj? Justin Bieber? Beyonce? Jesse J? Katy Perry? One Direction? Olly Murs? I know lame music has always existed but surely this mainstream shit is the worst music that has been in the recorded history of music. I also know that somewhere among all the mass produced mainstream, corporate shit, like a diamond in the sewage, there must be something good, until I find it I will have to carry on listening to music from better times.
If the music industry is going to destroy your soul, corrupt your child and make a fortune from us all at the same time they should at least use talented people and good music to do so, instead of this bunch of soulless, talent-less shit we have all over the charts, radio and YouTube today.
Who is watching and buying this shit? Have seen the view counts on YouTube? Gangnam Style has over two billion views, how the fuck and why have over two billion people watched that shit? No disrespect to the writers but Gangnam style is horrible, irritating and shit but also genius. I must be making the wrong kind of videos, why make political and mythological documentaries when I can just talk shit over a repetitive beat and have a load of pretty fake looking girls dancing around me? I do not blame PSY for making Gangnam style and I bet PSY are as stunned as anyone of the success and riches that Gangnam style has bought.
Gangnam style is just another example of the masses following ridiculous trends, I wish I thought of it.
