The beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion through sound. To me at least.

I don't know why anyone restrains themselves to any specific set of genres.

"I ONLY LIKE (insert genre-group here) AND IF IT'S NOT THAT THEN I DON'T LIKE IT"

It's so fucking dumb

Genres are good for classifying music, they shouldn't be used as a "safe zone" for the musically closed minded

Just listen to music and shut up

Very terrible and incorrect observation, so your discussion is moot

He might be referring to real rap, not today's pop rap, which people do listen too.

But you didn't state why people shouldn't like "metal and pop". Why is music dying because people listen to metal and pop instead of hip hop? Was music dead before the roots of hip hop? And what about pop-rap and rap-metal? Your thread is confusing.

I highly doubt that the music industry is dead. Sure, the "mainstream" music industry is filled with some unsightly characters and music, but not every hit song is that bad. The first album of Fun. (and the two albums from The Format) were fantastic and display Nate's incredible vocal range, you have talented vocalists such as Florence Welch, Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert. Beyond that, some of those bands and performers that aren't as well known as Of Monsters and Men or Fun are really wonderful.

I'd have to say my favorite genres are rock and alternate, so I'm sure that the music industry isn't dead.

I'm also a massive choral geek, so even if the music industry was "dead", I'd be completely fine.

Music is dead but most mainsteam music is garbage. No, I am not a hipster. I just enjoy underground metal, classical and opera music a lot. Bring back opera!

Opera is kind of broad, and it still exists. What do you mean by opera?

Classical music and opera based military music. I'll give you some examples:
Soprano
Game theme has good opera
Globus- Opera's last hope

Late with this response

I myself, am not a fan of metal. At least not screamo or death metal. The type of metal you can understand =P

I listen to EVERYTHING except this abomination of music today called rap and pop.

Classical, rock, opera, metal, alternative, soft rock, latin, country...

Before you classify me as "First metal faggot in thread" your sorely mistaken.

the music industry died the day people started to think they could produce music by pressing buttons on a calculator to make beep boop noises instead of using real instruments . . . the name of killer is "techno"
