CSGO needs Rock/Metal
 | 
Sweden Svahn 
Why on earth is this shitty kiddy music being played during CSGO events? Take notes from Quake and get some good metal/rock music. There are plenty of free artists out there looking for some exposure. Nordic countries = Metal CIS = Metal SA = Metal Na= Mumble rap In closing: NA is to blame Here's a good example of how you do it: youtube.com/watch?v=PeT4acxRm54

Hey now that's an opinion
2021-04-02 14:47
Fuck yea. If there's one thing we can learn from Quake (and let's face it, there is only one thing we can learn from Quake since that franchise is basically dead in the water now), it's how to put on a cool broadcast. I still get more excited watching reruns of Q4 tournaments than I do watching CS tournaments today.

I know you're kinda right but there's a strong and devoted community in Quake that keeps it alive and kicking. Rapha is still a powerhouse that puts on a great show. They have an amazing cast and fantastic tournaments. More people should get into it

To be honest, I haven't really been following QC but that's cool to hear. I did watch the initial Quakecon with ddk, zsx and the Ketchup and Mustard guys and that was fun, but I lost interest fast after that. Rapha is a name I remember from QL, so it's cool to hear he's still around. Quake will always have a special place in my heart, so I'm glad it's still going.

It makes sense in ESL's case as they own the label 'Enter Records'. It would only make sense based on the assumption that there's a clause in the artist's contracts that says ESL can freely use any of their work in the CS events. Edit: The parent company of ESL own DH, so it'd make sense if DH get access to Enter Records music. The classic ESL cost-saving Championships.

Depends entirely on the artists that Enter sign unfortunately. IMO, the current music isn't too bad, but it can get stale and repetitive. Case and point: youtu.be/rm-a-EzaXOQ?t=68 tbf I actually enjoy the song, that being said, I wouldn't mind seeing something like this youtu.be/Jm932Sqwf5E?t=46 at a major

If your asking a general question, I'd put orchestral psych rock first (Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Camel...) but that would obviously go beyond the scope for a cs:go cast, so idk... I feel like electronic music has to be the standard, but the current stuff they're playing is horrible. There's so many CIS viewers watching cs:go, so why does no one play Molchat Doma, Mujuice, Nürnberg etc... Besides that, I feel like there's some artists that would really fit into halftime breaks, such as Black Marble, MGMT or TR/ST. Or more Lo-Fi stuff like that youtube.com/watch?v=0vl0t58iMkY&ab_chann.. Oh, and I could really cope with punk aswell! But both, metal and rap, are two extremes that piss of not just the fans of the other but at least half of the audience.

Organisations don't have the licensing to play copyrighted music; hence the music played is free/independent music, i.e. Monstercat/NCS, etc... I think ESL actually own their own label too, so it would make sense to play that kind of music. I love electronic music so I don't mind it but remember music epitomises subjectivity and the difference of tastes/opinions, others will enjoy that kind of music. I miss the old Quake times of rock/metal music, though. :D EDIT: General corrections.

Your fellow countryman were talking about that as well. There is plenty of non-licensed rock/metal tho so thats perhaps not the reason. Just maybe contracts they already have with just that genre. Quake just hits it right man. so much nostalgia. Maybe we get lucky with a new event where they have some rock and metal in the breaks !

Well if you cant even remember it i dont think its a problem. You probably dont think its small because its your favourite music, but thats how most people think about their own music preference. And nowadays theres a lot of genres. And i think every genre has music with good and bad quality but that is often subjective as well.
