WTF are you talking about? Who in 2013 on mainstream radio tries to play off poorly produced songs as "hip" and "ironic"? Seriously, you must think it really is 1998.
Every indie act ever. You yourself complained about over produced and polished music. The other side of that coin can just as easily be done on purpose. To appeal to people like you. To sell the music. There's a word called sheeple that you think only applies to others.
Besides, bands didn't "play it off" as hip and ironic. Grunge bands, alternative rock, and punk rock in general has a long time established fan base that isn't just "pretending" to like low production quality. We actually just like the way it sounds. Something about polished and over-produced music just does not appeal to us.Still, you make no sense here either. Either come at me with actual sentences or don't bother. This is such a waste of time.
Right, because only some groups have posers who'll jump on anything away from mainstream instead of developing an identity.
I agree. Infact it could be said that I've become so numb that I can't feel you here. I am at the same time tired AND self aware.
I'm gonna go tell someone to get off my lawn now.Oh okay. Now it makes sense. You're a redneck.
I was going for more of an old man joke because angry youngsters like you seem to be under the impression that there is anything at all new in the world and that art doesn't exist in cycles of trends and reactions that turn into trends themselves and finally into nostalgia for the trends of old. You are not revolutionary. You are not smarter than your parents. You are not new.
Now I'm going to congradulate myself with some nickelback. Because I just like it. That's the only defence any music should need.
