50 Cent?... be reasonable, LJ :D

Metal and classical go hand in hand.

I certainly listen to a bit of classical from time to time, and I know alot of other metalheads who appreciate it.

Yeah I agree. Classical music isn't something I personally listen to, but I have HUGE respect for it. I'd rather listen to classical music than the shitty annoying pop music that's played on the radio all day.

then I guess I have the only metal head neighbor who can't stand the stuff ;). He swears his alligience to satan every time he hears classical.

The oldies are just used to classical music, usually the most melodically diverse music genre out there. And electronic is sometimes repetitive in melody...

...I'm just waiting for someone to say " NOT TRUE BITCH". :P

Most people who base their online handles on VST names don't seem to get laid... Take that you horrible little troll!

I can help you though!

If I had any viagra laying around I'd take some - ask you to wait 40 minutes and then trap you under my walker for a power hilt of mega-super-ultra-giga-geriatric-sodomization. If you tried to run I'd roll you down in my rascal and make you give me a fixodent rimjob.

:D

I don't think this thread is getting at the big picture... Hardly ANYBODY "gets" electronica music. Outside of say, the UK, the population of people who really listen to and respect electronica is very very small. But isn't it more special that way? Keep it underground!

Moral of lesson. Develop all types of music while you're still under 18.

The BBC Radiophonic workshop played a huge role in the development of electronic music and sound didn't they? Who can forget the glory of the Dr Who theme. Looks like they're stil going strong.

yep yep yep, tis true.
I pick up the BBC on my spaceships tv, just listening to adverts on british tv they use loads of Warp records artists music and glitched up electronica, especially on car ads.
