All music goes to shit once a lot of people start liking it and it turns into pop. Look at rock, rap, electronic, etc.
It's just because people realize they can make a lot of money off of it and produce it just for that, but the good bands are still out there.
They are not just "still out there."
Fuckers are easy to find, most of them busting balls so that you DO find them, many of them carrying over a thousand fans through independent promotion.
You have to start going to live DIY shows. Not just shows, DIY shows. House parties, keggers, NOT BIG VENUES, small bars, skate parks, NOT PLACES THAT SELL TICKETS, friends bands, touring bands, NOT BENEFITS OR CHARITIES REGARDLESS OF CAUSE, ESPECIALLY NOT CHURCHES OR INSTITUTIONS OF ANY KIND.
I get so fucking tired of people going "There's nothing original, there's nothing original, god, there's nothing original" when really they are just lazy dumbshits that refuse to stop playing WOW and COD for the 1 and a half fucking seconds it takes to browse through their events list or click "like" on a local DIY band and go through their events looking for the headlining acts they support.
There is an entire industry designed to do nothing but separate you from the music that you love so you will be so desperate for new music you will pay through the nose for it. Get your music every week, for 5-10 dollars, MEET THE ARTISTS, HANG OUT WITH THEM, MEET THEIR THOUSAND FRIENDS IN PERSON, GET LAID, GET COOL MUSIC, GET RESPECT FROM YOUR COMMUNITY, STOP BEING A WHINY BITCH.
