Why the hell is dubstep popular? 

The whole time I'm exposed to that crap I'm like,

There is now explaining dubstep other than the fact that thousands of people who enjoy it have been dropped in their heads multiple times. I hate it. Passionately!

Sounds like techno and industrial mixed together. 

Too derivative.

1997 David Bowie and Trent Reznor

Much better.

Oooh when I'm on a comp I'll have to look up Blaqk Audio, I haven't heard of them.

I love deadmau5, he isn't as jumbled and... odd as some of the DJ's. I also prefer my music to have an actual
musical sound to it which I think he achieves.

I think David Guetta is classified more as house but I do like his song "I Can Only Imagine". I live listening to it before I exercise and this kind of music is great for cleaning.

Quoting CaptainFeast:

That's probably what bugs me. Thanks for putting my finger on it. I like some bands that really draw from techno, like Blaqk Audio (AFI's side project). 

I just don't like the way this has no discernible beat or lyrics. It's choatic and sorta mashed together.

Quoting miss_lisa:

"Raise Your Weapon" has a lot less of a techno feel to it for the first couple minutes.

Quoting CaptainFeast:

I'll give it a go, but I doubt that it's going to change my mind. It all seems so auto-tune to me.

Quoting miss_lisa:

Try "Raise You Weapon" by deadmau5. I can't stand Skrillex, but my DH who doesn't like this kind of music does like deadmau5. He also has a remix of the Foo Fighters 'Rope'.
Quoting CaptainFeast:

Well, I guess that's true. I do see a distinct difference between Rock-n-roll and dupstep.

Rock-n-roll had a purpose and a voice, dupstep sounds like my old dial-up from the 90s.

Quoting LucyHarper:

People said the same thing 50 years ago about what we know now as classic rock. 

Quoting CaptainFeast:

It's honestly frightening what passes for music these days.

Quoting LucyHarper:

Different people have different tastes, personally I dont like it, but I'm sure that theres a lot of people who dont like the music that I like and think "what is this shit" when they listen to it.
