Dubstep should be called Dumbstep because of the lack of decency in the music.

Dubstep is called as such because of its roots.
Decency is a mater of opinion.
Con's argument lacks support at this point and seems to be asserting we should accept his subjective views on the issues around this topic.

Given that I accepted this debate without really knowing much about dubstep lets learn together. Based on an Epic Rap Battle it would seem Skrillex is a popular dubstep artist.
The first 3 videos on YouTube I find are as follows:

Skrillex - Rock n Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain)
First Of The Year (Equinox) - Skrillex [OFFICIAL]
SKRILLEX - Bangarang feat. Sirah [Official Music Video]

Where is the lack of decency? The computerized "lyric" seem to be used more for an instrumental than to communicate in the second 2 songs noted. In the first the lyric are about rocking out with friend.
Actually being involved in music most of my life including choirs in my youth, i find this music to be a great use of rhythm and melody. Further more there seems to be actual positive messages in the music videos noted above.

I can think of folk songs that are more indecent than these.

[These 3 song were pick at random.]
