When I was a kid, my parents were musicians. They taught me to play music, and exposed me to lots of it. From the oldies, to punk, to grunge rock. I really have to thank them for inserting these cultural influences into my life. Because of it, I grew up listening to the messages of generations before me, more so than my own generation.
My generation is lazy, and makes lazy computer music, without lyrics. When their are lyrics, they are seriously fucking retarded, like they're as rude as Eminem without any of the talent, or the humor.
Besides, I play guitar, drums, bass, and I sing. I have no place in this day and age of Fruity Loops music studio and mumble rap. This music has no soul. You can't love the instruments, because no one is playing them. It's a sample, of a cookie cutter copy of another sample. It sucks. Then the message is usually something along the lines of "my dick and my gun, and a bitch, and the club. I'm the greatest, I demand respect without earning it, and if I ever did earn it, it would be by ripping other people off, and beating up someone smaller than me."
The worst part? The phenomenon that is asshole, ignorant, arrogant, piece of shit drug addicted "musicians" is fucking global. Nobody disagrees. Everyone likes it. So it really goes to show how much of a tool mentality most people are on, all the time.
Music doesn't mean shit. If it ever did, it was for kids and teenagers, and grown man children trying to talk tough.
It's a slap in the face of our entire species that we could have ever gone from classical music, and pianos, and strings instruments, and even a fucking old western bar with a player piano.. That we could ever go from that, to the decay and destruction of the human spirit that music is today.
Who let the dogs out?
Goodbye real music.
Hello songs about butts.
No one has any depth anymore. What they say is exactly what they mean. And what they mean to say is that they don't give a fuck, they're just here on this planet for a couple foolish, shallow reasons, and that's that.
I swear to god, every single woman from my generation got pregnant to songs like, "If you wanna come and take a ride with me, smoke an L... etc..." Fucking clowns. The rest? Mimes.
