Many other bands from their decade and subsequent ones have more virtuosity, showmanship, and trajectory than they do....

The other day I asked myself when was the last time a Rock song topped the charts. So I did what I had to do, I sought the help of St. Google; to my surprise and dismay the answer to my question was "Heathens", by Twenty One Pilots. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't hate this band nor have I anything against it, it just that that is NOT Rock music. It's something in the ranges of pop and alternative, but it is NOT ROCK MUSIC. So then I asked myself another question, is Rock Music dead? Led Zep...

Music Challenge #2

Opsianos
Beginner

Right...so, the last one that was 7 months ago (wow, time flies) pretty much flopped due to me being unable to submit recordings. So, here goes another one! Rules and Conditions 1. Each person must provide ONE original performance of any music per round IN ROUNDS 2 AND 3; round 1 being simply for acceptance, and round 4 being a backup round in case if anything goes wrong (taking a page out of Smithereens' book). Only you (yes, you) are to be pla...

Who's the better group of MCs (solo careers count too)? Juice Crew vs. A Tribe Called Quest

The Juice Crew is way better than A Tribe Called Quest. The Juice Crew had a lot more stars, including Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie and Kool G Rap. The music that they produce is remarkable and their skill still remains indisputable....

Rap should be considered music.

Shadow_Hunter

Rap should not be considered music since it has no tune or melody; it is simply words spoken in a rhythmic pattern. The definition of music is a group of sounds that have rhythm and harmony (1). Music is supposed to be beautiful, and it is meant have a harmony and a melody. If music has lyrics, the lyrics should be meaningful, and the song should not just be about lyrics. Rap in general is only lyrics, with maybe some rhythmic qualities thrown in. Usually the lyrics have little significant meani...
