Also, does anybody know how he got "famous" outside of being the guy who got a bunch of ridiculous tattoos on his face?
He performed with Lady Gaga. No idea why she's famous though.

That's such a douche thing to say.
What do you mean? She's literally the embodiment of what's wrong with the music industry.

Why is that? She's a multi-talented, exceptionally creative performer (and the best part of American Horror Story season 6).

You sound like an old fuddy-duddy, ("what's wrong with these kids today, with their crazy music?!"), and more importantly, a raging, oozing douche.
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Seriously? Have you heard her "sing"?

How old are you, seriously? You seem like you're too young to be like this, but here we are.

Oh. None of the music I listen to had autotune invented when it was recorded. So besides second rate talent using gizmos instead of practice, what else is wrong with the music industry?

there are thousands of artists making great original music but they'll never get the airplay or income that someone like Gaga or Britney or Miley does. When i say "the music industry" I'm talking about the big labels that pay for constant radio play to make people feel familiar with and buy absolute crap.

You don't think Miley Cyrus is talented. That's the worst opinion I've heard today. I think you're just another one of these "it's popular so it sucks" curmudgeony old fucks. That's what you are.

This is the same stupid shit that nasty old farts say every single generation. And you're doing it unironically, which is the saddest thing of all.

Fuck this, let's get back to people dying. Someone die real quick so we can get this back on track.

He makes some good points in the video.

I'm going to learn to speak with a British accent to make myself sound more important. That's the biggest takeaway.

No, just because Mr "achy breaky heart" trotted out his daughter for a second 15 min, that doesn't make her talented. No, not one of the "songs" she released were any good, not even the one that her writers plagerized from Michael May. Did you hear her live shit? It was like a cat in heat and her voice crackled behind the electronic coverage and delay and amplification.

I'm surprised at you Pinner. You're an old fat guy like me so you remember when music was real songs and singing. it's not just me though, not sure when you last went to a dance club but these millinials are rocking out to Bon Jovi and GNR at clubs so obviously they want more than this autotuned modern shit.

OK, I think we split the topic.

"New music is awful" is what each generation says about the generation below it, but that's not what is being said saying now. And I am not saying it at all about Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry, all of whom have songs I can at least stand to have on in the background.

I think what we ARE saying is that the people in charge of what music gets played nationally - which is, unfortunately, our generation for the most part - has fuck-awful taste. The obligatory talentless handpicked shit is much, much objectively worse now than it was in the 60s. Nobody with a brain in their head thinks that Beiber (who is the manifestation of a worthless, no-talent shit constantly failing upwards) is a better listen than the Monkees.

The reality TV angle doesn't help. I doubt that the judges are given the freedom to actually vote yes on anything, but those shows encourage a certain type of overproduced wailing.

As the only person on this BBS who likes more music created after the year 2003 than before it, I'm telling you that music has never been better or worse than it is today.

I actually only like music made after 2003, something I was hoping to expound upon in my actual top 100 songs list once given the ok to do so. I learned my lesson playing with fire on the last list (the fake list) and it won't happen again.
