Everything said by Gondolan is so unbelievably spot on... You got no one but yourself to blame if you can't find good new music.

See, this is where you are incorrect. Record companies are freaking loaded and most of the big labels are conglomerates anyway. They have the money to promote new and talented acts and drive up the sales of new artists. The problem is that they don't. A lot of good new bands are starting their own record labels because they don't want to be gouged of potential earnings by the corporations, this is common in indie especially. They'd rather promote garbage like Nickelcrap and Bieber on the major labels over good bands like Arkells and Monster Truck, all of whom are Canadian artists. Why do you think Rush started Anthem records? They wanted creative freedom and the ability to put out quality music at their own pace.


No, it's not incorrect. Record companies have a lot of money because they how how to invest their money and get a return. Yes, they have the resouces to promote new artists, but you can't guarantee they will turn a profit if they take a chance on a new artist. Many times, they spend millions promoting a single or a new artist and they will lose money. These companies are putting money into groups like Nickelback because they know they will get a return on their investment. They would cease to be a company if they only did high risk investments.

That's the same crap Dave Grohl spews... blaming the medium for himself only hearing crappy artists... and not his own laziness in his old age when it comes to seeking out great bands. Digital is no different than analog insofar as capturing sound. You can turn off the grid, just like you could cut up and align tape (trust me, artists did it) back in the day. The difference is: His old ass lives in a myopic world of big-selling artists, and he's no longer surrounded by grassroots bands that aren't in it for the money... so, if he doesn't interact with the underground culture or skim the independent blogs for the great bands, he doesn't hear them.

But, that doesn't mean they don't exist. It just means him (and you) are crotchety old ginks who missed the memo on where you find good music post ~2005 or so while you were filling your pockets with your careers... which I TOTALLY get. Just don't use that as an excuse to disseminate false information about the health of the music scene or the functionality of the recording medium.

It's easy. They're no good because they don't have to be.
If effort is not required, then effort will not be made.

Airbourne makes me want to vomit. Same with Nickelcrap. Honestly, I didn't think rock music could get any more mediocre until I heard those bands. Thank god Foo Fighters are still around, proof that good rock isn't dead.

I'm not a fan of Nickelback or Foo Fighters but to each his own. At least bands like Slayer and Megadeth are still going strong.

Steel Panther..."17 Girls In A Row"

I fu*ked 17 girls in a row last night and 10 of them gave me head
I had to tip the maid a hundred dollar bill to clean the wet spot off the bed, yes I did
The very next day I told the guys, they flipped me off and said that's all lies
Got to admit I was a little peaved, Stix and Lexxi wouldn't believe

I fu*ked seventeen
Seventeen girls in a row
What a dirty hoe
I banged 17 girls in the grocery store and never lost my erection, no
They had to mop all sperm in aisle 3 and some poop in the produce sex-sex-sex-tion, stinky
When I told the boys in the band they said motherfu*ker, you're out of your fu*king head
I don't lie about the girls I screw, they're all so jealous 'cause they know it's true

I fu*ked seventeen
Seventeen girls in a row, yes I, yes I did

Seventeen girls in a row
Seventeen girls, I shoot my blanks in every hole
Seventeen girls in a row
When I was done, they were begging for more

I fu*ked 17 girls at the trailer park down in Memphis, Tennessee
I whipped out my di*k and they got on their knees, like they were all getting ready to pray
Wham to the bam to the thank you ma'am, then I praised the Lord like Billy Graham
Hell, maybe where I'm gonna go, but when we get there I'm pretty sure the Devil will know

I fu*ked seventeen
Seventeen girls in a row

Sweet, young, juicy pu*sy
I fu*ked seventeen girls in a row

Hop on that cameltoe
I fu*ked seventeen girls in a row




Kind of a cool song...

I really doubt that is stone cold truth..not actually autobiographical..

I'd like to see evidence that the singer f*cked 17 girls in a row

if so I'd buy him beer all night long

The difference between then and now is NOBODY wants to take a chance on original sounding artists anymore because they can just play it safe by selling formula CRAP to the masses of sheep who encourage this dreadful cycle to continue by eating it up with a spoon over and over again.


Exactly !

We just have other fads or trends musically which are predominating culturally right now. Hopefully, before I die, rock will come back around. And hopefully the kinds I like.

On that note...it hits me really odd and funny when I'm small-talking with someone, they'll say something about some hip-hopish stuff on their mobile device, and they say something like "I love this part coming up when it starts really popping..." It makes me cringe. I can't tell what part is "really popping". It's not musically "epic" at all, or even slightly interesting. Has no power or groove. Pop? It "pops"? It's like they're musically naïve...thinking that such a thing is "popping". Like, huh?

Let me play you something that actually "pops"...and is played on actual instruments instead of synthesized...

Because they are aloud to be ... !!!!
Its all based on a huge Corporate wealth, Business Enterprise...

Forget the Art...............

There is a utube clip of 1 Frank Zappa expressing his views that the

" Music World was much safer in the care of basic honest and some what naive Entrepreneurs e.g. Colonel Tom parker, Brian Epstein , Peter Grant etc... who were willing to take a chance in backing actual talented musicians .

More so then the intense business hip fashion wannibes that we have do day "

Please. There has never been a time in history where the music business *wasn't* about business before music.
Yes, expectations of immediate success are much stronger than they once were, but don't fool yourself into believing the music business ever existed for the sole purpose of helping talented people live their dreams and filling the world with "quality music".

Also, let me reiterate, if you have any complaints about not finding good music today, it's your own fault for settling for what the mainstream serves you. More genres and sub-genres exist today than ever before.

^^^^^ Keep slaying the cowards pig. Welcome back.

I'm discovering so much music this year alone. None of it's rock, but old school soul.

I can dig some old school soul. It's amazing what's classified as "soul" today, though.

Yea Rhythm'n'Blues / Soul in my opinion meant... The sound was HONEST and RAW - Wilson Picket , Otis Reeding , Sam Cooke , The Funk Brothers, Sam & Dave , Geno Washington etc....

Not this overly Produced / Refined , Predictable " Sampled Crap " of today..........

As with almost everything in this day and age, it is adulterated and most meaning is lost, even our own lives in the midst of global purging...music has lost most of its value, due to the general population declaring degeneracy over regeneracy, the "yolo" lifestyle in which hardly anyone acts for the soul anymore, the soul of music is extinguished within the overall body of common music nowadays. It is unfortunate, but as with many other subjects there is meaning to be found, beyond the walls of what are thrown at us, or imposed upon us as a whole. There is still great music to be found in the underground, and we wont find it on radios, or anywhere in the general media. We may get hints of it through other sources of talent, but ultimately, one has to truly dig and find music that resonates with them on a deeper level.
