Not the problem of the music industry, but what the consumers actually like. In the end it's a business that musicians and record companies are trying to make a living off from. Of course there are artists that make personal music for the sake of entertaining others and enjoying the art form itself and making well money for themselves as well. But what's popular is making the music become less and less respected, but enjoyed more. Consumers also are given this idea that music should be free for everyone to consume, although it is not its sole purpose because musicians are also trying to make a living. The industry is a mess not only because of the people running it, but also because of the people feeding their taste in popularity.

I definitely agree. The quality of top charts now are nowhere close to even 10 years ago.

No shit there’s a logical answer to that, there’s so much music out there that it’s harder and harder to produce new music that nobody has heard before, something unique

I completely disagree. Vast majority of popular top songs are gross mumble rap or electronic. I wish people would try and do something new.

Well, you just proved that my point is right, mumble rap and electronic are so popular rn because there isn’t almost any lyrics that people have not heard, people don’t care about lyrics anymore, now people care about melody and i don’t blame them

And i’m saying no shit of course that’s going to happen when it’s almost impossible so come up with something new, just think about how much music gets released everyday and then think about 10 years, we’ve heard almost everything there is to offer, it was somuch easier to come up with new music 10 years ago because there wasn’t this much music released compared to now

Look at the charts mid 2000’s early 2010s. That style of pop music is very similar, but it was also very good. Just because people don’t innovate, doesn’t mean the music has to be of bad quality.

Again, no shit, do you really expect people to listen to same shit for 20 years straight? And there wasn’t that much music being released between 2000 and 2010 compared to how much there is being released now, almost anybody can make and release music now, you don’t need an expensive ass recording studio with a crew nowadays, back then you could make music only if you’re rich or if you have good connections so the amout of music has increased by so much just use common sense

I was talking about the “new music” part. The songs of today aren’t bad because they’re similar. Like to back 10 years, many pop songs are basically the same but also good.

I do agree with this. Just gonna say this tho, I know kpop is that one genre which you love or hate and I do respect different opinions, but imo if you want to find high quality MVs, kpop has them . Ofc some are poor childish quality but honestly a lot of them are just top quality with no asses guns and drugs every 10 seconds

I can confirm this I don't like Kpop in general, but there was a thread on hltv some time ago about Kpop, I was curious and actually managed to find some good songs
2021-08-05 14:01
Have you thought about this: maybe there isn’t many songs with good lyrics nowadays because it’s hard to come up with something that has not been said yet? There’s so much music that it get’s harder and harder to make something new

Yes, that's true and I sometimes wonder when will artists run out of ideas Basically there are cheesy/cliché lyrics which have been said a thousand times, just random words or vocal chops or no lyrics at all
2021-08-05 14:08
the lyrics writing changed a lot. Real artist like all the Grunge and Rock Bands from the 90s doesn't exist. You will never find a top artist that would do a song like "Korn-Daddy" Or a pearl jam Black Or so many amazing lyrics like Nirvana and Alice in Chains had. Lyrics with real personal meaning and self issues. It is a weak excuse to say "There is everything said". You can also recycle some lyrics. Blink 182 -Adam has a clear reference to "come as you are" from Nirvana with just 2 sentences and it fits the song very well.

I think the subgenre you like is Neurofunk, I'm not very familiar with it though (I'm more of a Liquid-type guy) Check out Apex, Phetsta, Annix, Prolix, Pythius, State Of Mind And remember, r/DnB and YouTube mixes are always there to help if you have trouble finding new stuff ;)

music industry is dead until a new John Lennon and Kurt Cobain show up. And literally, every band gets worse that I listen to from the 90s until today. Even Tool last album was their worst. The old ones miss their prime and the new one will never reach a prime. -yeah that describes the music industry very well.
2021-08-05 14:39
The music industry is not dead, the music industry that you’re into is dead. Anyways, yall acting like people force you to listen to music that’s popular, just listen to what you like, nobody is forcing you to music that’s trending on charts etc. it’s that simple, don’t make me listen to music that you like if i’m not into it just like i’m not making you listen to music that i’m into by talking trash about music that you like

Many known artist can't do the music they want. So even if you like a Band... the music industry fuck them. Deftones aren't allowed to release the last album they made with their dead bass player. The band wanted and asked several times but the label said no Deftones were also forced to do the song "Back to School". Chino said it was an awful experience to do music just for your label. Pink Floyd one of the most successful bands of all time had issues with their label. That is why they made the song "Welcome to the machine". The point is even you want to listen to the music you like, the music industry still fucks them as well. So it is a problem for everyone.

Ofc that will be the case and always has been, that’s what happens when you’re under a label, that’s what most labels do, good thing nowadays you can succeed without a label, you don’t need that shit, and that’s one of the reasons why music industry is doing better than ever, individuals can succeed without a label. If we go back 10 or 20 years, you couldn’t do that

But to have a label behind you gives you a huge marketing advantage. As I mention radios get money to play songs. Only a handful every month is a free choice by the radio stations. I think a great example is Mike Shinoda. A "Mega Star" with LP and his Rap project he sold millions of records. Atm, he does music on twitch with some talented artists and he made a single. Really nobody plays it, not because it is bad it is average I would say but instead we can hear all these low trash rappers with autotune and stuff. For one reason, his solo work is his own project, without a label. It is still the case if you wanna make big numbers you have to make a record deal and with bad luck, you can make a full album but it will never be released.

No man you’re not right and i could name so many artists that made it without a record label, you’re talking nonsense it’s not 2000s anymore you’re living in the past, anyone can succeed without a label, one really good example is lil nas x, old town road, fastest growing song on youtube 2 music videos 1.4billion views in just in 2 years, it was his first song Anyways that’s not even what i was talking about in my original comment so idk why we’re talking about this, i said that no need to hate on other peoples music taste, nobody forces you to listen to music that i like, just listen to music that you like

why did mcdonalds grow so big? Because its painfully average so that no one dislikes it, or loves it for that matter. its designed to be popular or sound familiar. It's why indie has grown so large, but the same thing is happening there. Mac demarco came out as a super unique original artist and now every other indie song tries to sound like him with oversaturated chorus and open indie-type chord progressions. But no one can sing with the same vibe so he stays relevant :)
2021-08-05 14:57
It's only natural though, nothing can stay the same forever.

IDK why people are blaming the music itself as the music industry being shit or going downhill. It's the people that are listening to it that is making it popular, therefore the industry keeps producing it because it's hip. The industry only finds talented artists who have a great voice and are mainly attractive, where they are given a pre-composed song for them to sing. The record companies create a brand for these artists that they represent with theses songs, pulling in fans to buy their tickets for big stadium shows and fan merchandise. And now I am mainly just talking about those big record companies who produce pop music and such. It's a cycle of things that feeds and revolves around itself. It is in the end the choices of the consumer and the producer to make the decision whether this product is actually worth making

It is always... you eat what you get on the table. And in the music industry, 90% of the music belongs to 3 major companies. They also pay a ton of money to radios to play the shit they want. Did you know "Smells like Teenspirit" wasn't a hit overnight? It was played for weeks on university radios before it went to normal radio stations and at the same time, it climbed slowly to the top 10 in charts. Or the band Staind played their biggest hit 1996 in Bars and people scream at them "play other things". 2001 with a label on the back it became the most played song from 2000-2010. Cuz at one moment it was on the fucking table. The point is quality don't win a fight just like that it needs also timing and the right "label". And music industry deny that. The music industry doesn't want freedom. Did you know Evanescence was forced to have a rapper on "Bring me to life"? They were forced to do that shit. And nowadays most artists have 2-3-4 Songwriters cuz they aren't allowed to do their own music.

this is not just a case of "old generations didn't understand young people music" its just a fact that music has stagnated, everything has been done already. rock, pop, and rap all peaked years ago only new genres are electronic based music, no new instruments really if you defend new music your ears are objectively broken
