So gangnam style is a trend, and it is related to music.
you just proved me right

is music suddenly heading in the musical direction of 'gangnam style'

how many songs on the radio sound like it, huh? not many

it's a viral hit, but not a trend

Why is it so difficult for you to accept Gangnam Style as a trend? Just look at the definition! Thought it's not a good trend, you are just cavilling. And even if you wouldn't want Gangbang Style to be associated with the word 'trend', it is still related to the discussion.

Dubstep was awful but it was not only 2012.

didn't lilinternet jokingly create seapunk in 2011

and honestly, there is not much sonically different about these three genres

vaporwave seems far more concerned with its visual aesthetic than anything

I have a hard time with the fact that you even call that music...
Though maybe I just looked up the wrong songs. Link me to your favorite (or one of your favorites)

I don't have the energy to argue difference of opinion with you. You like it or you don't. I don't listen to music I wouldn't consider music so it's not the music's fault you don't enjoy it.

Here's another artists I like unrelated to the poster.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6ih1aKeETk&hd=1 1080p is adviced.

Those links are actually decent.
However, after a few songs each, I can't stand XXYYXX, Giraffage or Beat Culture.
Slow Magic is pretty decent. I couldn't find Blackbird, because the only thing that came up was The Beatles.

If you can't stand it it's probably because you're not relaxed enough. If you don't enjoy it then you probably just don't like their music.

Blackbird Blackbird is his name.

This is what I listen to. It may not be your style and it doesn't have to be but it's what I listen to.

Fair enough.
For the record, I'm not frequently this opinionated, though I have been more so recently. I apologize for being so critical.
No, I wouldn't call myself very relaxed right now.
Funny thing though... the first song I heard by XXYYXX actually enraged me. It had a certain feel to it that just infuriated the hell out of me.

I'll look him up now...

Fair enough.
By the way, it probably would have been easier to instead give me a link to your profile, rather than your station. I did like the first song I heard though, so there's that. I do listen to radically different music than you.

If you're not in the mood for XXYYXX you tend to hate it.

That Slow Magic song was free btw.
