    Even this mainstream pop of the 90's sounded better. And I understood the intent when I grew older.

    Boy, this thread got heated fast...

    I think that was Roger Scranton (thnx, St. Google!). Benjamin's heyday was the beginning of the 20th century, I think, before the modern documentary was invented.

    I'm not the biggest expert, though - Google might help you more in this case.


    (Also, is it any good to mention that my OP was about the social impact of "consuming" mainstream stuff, rather than aesthetics? No? Okay then. )

    But taste is SUBJECTIVE. It hinges on so many THINGS. LIKE HOW THE MUSIC SOUNDS TO YOU AND WHAT IT MAKES YOU FEEL, AS AN INDIVIDUAL.

    As far as I'm concerned, a lot of music was made to please people...you know, for people to enjoy together...concerts...um yeah I don't even..

    Have your incoherent beliefs, but know that they are, in fact, stupid.

    I really love some 80's New Wave pop...like I take The Church and Depeche Mode much more seriously than Rick Astley. That may simply be because my own particular world view aligns with theirs better, I don't know. I like some really shallow 80's pop, though. But it's just so great! I love it!

    I think Ace of Bass is absolute garbage in comparison. So I'd like for you to list out some bands that you think are terrible, so I can get a better idea of what you think is so lame and for the masses...because right now I'm just in a state of utter hilarity comparing your pretentiousness about music to this new-found insight that you love Ace of Bass.

    Weird I judge music as such.

    If I can see the missing melody, it's crap. If I get sucked into the song, it is not.

    Some opera is incomplete. Therefore, its crap.

    I love "Bawitdaba" by Kid Rock. I think it's just undeniably a fantastic, bad ass song. Bad ass is really the best way to describe it. "Bawitdaba" makes me want to steal cars and roll on down the highway. I also have many good memories of hearing it in strip clubs where I worked, no I'm not joking. It's like a working class anthem or something. Perhaps you just can't relate to it at all. I think it completely lacks pretentiousness. It makes me feel the same way that some 70's Southern Rock does.

    That's the only song from all of those artists you mentioned that I feel REALLY STRONGLY IN DISAGREEMENT WITH YOU ABOUT...but I also listen to some Britney Spears.

    Nickelback bugs me, and T Pain uses way too much auto-tune, but like yeah...I still don't see how Ace of Bass is sooo much better, frankly. It's all pop.

    Oh wait...I missed Blink 182.

    Fuck, dude. "Adam's Song" and "Miss You" are very sincere love songs, and I love the video for "Miss You" it's absolutely ART. I also like "Dammit (Growing Up)."

    It just happens to be pop that you don't personally like, right?
