Music Today : Just a Bunch of Garbage?
It's 4:00 pm and you just got home from school. You turn on the radio only to hear some media generated stuff banded together by some lame drum beats. This is unfortunetly, the music of today.
Along with pop music and boy bands, alternative and rock music has , essentially gone to the pits. There's truly no other way to put it. The media has been spoonfeeding us talentless garbage and sell out's for years but it is only now manifesting it's intensity on MTV and the radio. Sure, pop music and boy bands "make" great music to dance to, but there's no talent there. Indoctrinating girls as young as eight years old, bands like NSYNC and the Backstreet boys have already started to mold the minds of the little people. This truly scares me ; the fact that such media generated crap is molding the very minds of people so vulnerable and so young is sick.
Then there's the heavy metal. Most of it, at least now, is just power cords, one after another, and screaming uncomprehensible words and obsenities into a microphone. There is hope, though. Artists like shock rocker Marilyn Manson and Incubus inspire people to start thinking. You may not agree with what they are saying or writing , but at least they are getting you to think.
So what do you want to hear when you turn on the radio? A screaming guy with ripping power cords? A sickening lovey dovey song , seventy five percent generated by a machine and only twenty five percent actully recorded? I don't want to hear either and neither does the rest of the adolecsent population of America. Music has turned to crap and it needs to change. Fast.
