DUBSTEP FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

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.

  1. its fine IMO, i don't have a playlist of it but all music has its own merits. sensory overload is what I get when I listen to classical music though. those makes it hard to breath. ish.

  2. I read this post just as I saw a post from Texts From Last Night... Something about this dude eating cereal while bakes, pooping on the toilet and listening to dubstep. The perfect mental image for the genre.

  3. I don't really have a problem with the genre. Can't stand it for extended amounts of time, but it's great for occasional listening, imo.

  4. I listen to stuff that is a lot more caustic than dubstep, so the "noise" aspect doesn't bother me. However, it seems to me that the only thing that makes a song dubstep is that wobble, which is a fairly shaky foundation for an entire subgenre. I agree that this will be a very short lived trend.

  5. Dubstep isn't music in my opinion. Just some bass drops with some wob wob wobs, and other electronic sounds that will give you a headache. I consider rap more of an art compared to dubstep, and thats saying a lot.

  8. most dubstep is pretty awful but some can tastefully do it justice with clever bass rather than just womp womp. Not my favorite genre but subs can be nice for a good body vibration :)

  12. not fond of this genre as majority of tunes aren't diverse they are all similar, but hearing it now and then it's alright

  13. Dubstep is NOT music. These people are not ARTISTS. Dubstep is electronic noise and these people are technicians. Dubstep is just flavor of the month. I really don't like the music at all and it is over hyped and not entertaining to listen to. Most people who say they love Dubstep don't know what real techno/trance/electronic music is.

  30. This blog post... the best I have ever seen.

    probably in my first 72 hours of blogging but STILL

    I agree 100%. Tho I am finding some of it better an listenable. Just like I have found some Hardstyle to be very good

    Doesn't make the genre good. Every failing breed has a few survivors

  31. Definitely have mixed feelings about dubstep.
    Have to admit, sometimes after a few bowls, its completely mindblowing to listen to. But, like you said: sensory overload. Its totally what they're going for here. Ever hear the 'new' dubstep genre, 'brostep'? LOL supposedly "dirtier" than ever, heavy heavy bass drops, etc. Dubstep kids love that shit.

  32. I love dubstep when i'm not sober, and when I am sober some times. So I have to sort of disagree with ya there man. Though nice rant about dub step : -p. It was very accurate.

    Normally listen to metal/death metal, but oh well : -p.

    Keep posting rants about stuff, you are a good writer in that regard, amusing.

  33. I hate how every place I'd get electronic music/remixes is now just full of dubstep crap. I don't mind some remixes with it, but the trend has definitely taken over..
