This idea's been 2-3 years in the making, to say the least...

For a long time now, I've been collecting pieces of bad music advice/criticism I've been given over the years, for purposes of putting them all into one release to demonstrate why their advice is bad. This said, this song is intentionally made to be bad, and I will be surprised if you give this a positive rating, as this was made to be something for people to throw tomatoes at.

The pieces of bad advice that went into this, from sources I will leave anonymous for the sake of not giving those individuals bad press:

-Hardcore fused with SoundCloud rap

-Stronger bass than my most recent works have, making it the most prominent feature regardless of the genre

-Square wave sub bass

-Distort basically everything in the low end, including the sub bass

-REALLY simple lead melodies, regardless of genre

-More chord-based melody regardless of the genre

...if possible, I would've also used the following pieces as well, but couldn't because reasons:

-Incorporate antipop instrumental elements (think Billie Eilish)

-Must have a music video

Better than my songs

Synfang responds:

After taking a brief look at your NG... to be fair, you only got 3 songs there. I'm guessing you're relatively new to this, then. That said, don't worry too much about it; you got plenty of time to improve. Besides, I took quite a bit longer to get to the quality your latest piece seems to be at. :)

funny thing is, this song has a higher rating than any of my songs LOL

Synfang responds:


TBH, I have no freaking idea why this song's getting high ratings. :/

I don't know what to feel...

Amused because of the concept or...

Sad because even if it's intentionally bad made it is better than my audios xD

Synfang responds:

I mean, most of the bad stuff about it was from the sound selection and mixing point of view. I did put effort into the melodies so it'd at least somewhat be bearable, primarily in the later parts. But, if what you're looking for is some tips to make better music, I could see about making a YT tutorial of some kind.


Synfang responds:

...uh... thanks, I guess?
