|another post turned blog entry. from the "Anthony Raneri On Fake Bands" thread: |
thank you, anthony.
some of the posts in this thread absolutely depress me... sorry, but there is nothing fun, entertaining or appealing about ANY of this "crunk", electro, auto-tuned bullshit with lyrics being written just for shock value. the fact that the people playing said bullshit are more involved in the "fashion" aspect doesn't help.
how the fuck did this garbage even become associated with this "scene"/"genre" of music in the first place? why does AP.net have to post about these talentless, money hungry/underage-pussy hungry jackasses?
the fact that this shit has completely engulfed the Warped Tour is what bothers me the most. this year was more of a freak show to me than anything. looking at the fashion/trends (both of the morons on stage and their mindless fans), hearing some of the trash being spewed from the speakers, watching it be eaten up by the thousands choosing to have a "dance party" during this shit rather than a mosh pit at a different stage containing an "honest" band... it was sickening. if it existed on an entirely different plane, it'd be much easier to ignore and laugh off.
call me old, call me jaded, i'll never understand it. this is not music. this is emptiness. this is greed. this is sad.
P.S. - Pete Wentz and Gabe Saporta aren't helping. fuck the both of them.
