The first round will be used as a statement of our initial opinion and acceptance of the debate. All music ever released and ever will be is art. Art comes in many ways, shapes and forms, music is one of those. Some art of course is better than others and that's all a matter of opinion but I have been hearing all too often that something like Slayer or even Justin Bieber is not art. I'm a fan of Slayer but not of Justin and in fact I don't like her songs at all, but I would never ever dismiss one of Bieber's songs as art. Note: This is my first debate on this site so if there are any formalities I should know about please inform me of them.
