Never has there been a genre of music that has made me rage more than dubstep. What the is this music? When I first listened to this track on youtube, I was all like, "oh, sick violin bro." But then... but then it started WUBBING and WHURPING, and BRRRRRTING and BUZZZING. And then I thought, "I do not like this dissonance."
Some notable comments on the youtube video:
"This dubstep is so filthy that when my mum walked in I had to switch it to porn"
"It sounds like Transformers having sex"
"Thumbs up if you piss on the side of the toilet in order to make less noise"
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? AND THIS VIDEO HAS 7 MILLION VIEWS? WHAT!?
Now some of you may be thinking, does this type of music have any redeemable qualities? Let's take a look:
-Dubstep is good for keeping awake your neighbors, roommate, family, etc whom you hate. Why? This type of music grates at the soul. I feel dirty after listening to it, and not even a warm shower can wash away the feeling.
-Need to blow out some speakers? Turn up the volume and the "sick bass drops" will have you out hundreds of dollars in no time.
-Need an excuse to get fucked up? Pop in some dubstep. Let's be real here people. This music was made popular by a high school and college culture that glorifies "sensory overload." Imo there is nothing wrong with that, but it is specifically made for that purpose. I wonder how people can stand listening to it without being under the influence. The music is totally empty. Every dubstep song - with few exceptions - sound exactly the same. You disagree? Come again? I cant hear you over the WUB WUB WUBBING.
Dubstep is just a passing phase. It has no more substance than what its listeners ingest before dancing wildly to its sick drops. Just like all passing phases, this too will pass. Maybe then people will realize that they've wasted their time listening to empty, unfeeling noise. I am not saying that one should not listen to this type of music - that would be pretty elitist of me. I just want people to think about what they are listening to: music that is nothing without the help of accessory drugs and alcohol. Sorry guys, hate to break it to you, but dubstep sucks.
