MUSIC TODAY: JUST A BUNCH OF
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
unfortunately, the music of today.
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 spoon
feeding 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.
there's the heavy metal. Most of it, at least now, is just power cords, one
after another and screaming incomprehensible words and obscenities 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.
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 actually recorded? I don't
want to hear either and neither does the rest of the adolescent population of America. Music
has turned to crap and it needs to change. Fast.
