American music nowadays kinda suck, especially the pop songs.
Some have bad music and stupid lyrics.. or not much lyrics are all.
Most songs have good music but have lyrics that are nothing special or lack emotion or a message.

I prefer non-asian music than asian music but I must say that asian songs have good lyrics.
A lot of their stuff is rly deep and actually make sense.
[I'm not saying American stuff doesnt make sense.. just making a comparison]

PS. I LOVE ROCK <3
I'd only go to a concert if it was a rock band (Linkin Park, Disturbed, etc) I rly like or Utada Hikaru X3

Depends if your only blinded by the constant mainstream shit!

Look under the surface in ANY country and you'll find decent music. (Irans got some good rock bands)

You know, I noticed a song fron Back On, a Japanese rock band, had the same beat as a song I herd from Nickleback (or was it someone else). So what's your point? But I do agree with some people on this forum, some American singers have talent, they just don't use it. I'm getting tired of listining to rap music that always has something to do with "shooting a nigger" or "tapping that ass," and every love song I hear is depressing or has to do with the same thing everytime.

That's why I like Kanye West, the only rapper I like. At least he tries to be original...and his songs aren't always about sex and drugs.

To be honest I'm tired of most of the music that's come out these past few days. Its all been done before.
Im tired of the songs where some chicks boyfriend cheated on her yada yada yada, and I'm tired of the sappy sad story songs. Its not only America's music thats been lacking. I think everyone needs to step it up a notch and come up with some new shit lol. The talent is there but the originality isn't. >.>

American music is still the best overall in my opinion. People who criticize American music seem to be referring to songs they hear on the radio or on television. Obviously that is only a few of the music coming from the country that happens to be mainstream. America still gets the most attention from the world in terms of music and film. I say it's because of the diversity.

I am getting sick of listening to Lady Gaga, TI, Lil' Weezy, and T-Pain being played over and over though.

guys are only bitching about what you hear on the radio

or bands that are not mainstream then comback
and complain, because most of the indie and non
mainstream bands have alot of originality.

To me yes compared to most uk band american fall dramatically short of the prize


Yes. Back then, in the 80's, and early 90's and alot of 70's songs were really great and original. Now its a bunch of shit with the same fucking meaning. Some love songs are great, but rap died for me, it went from Snoop Dogg, Ice T and all those guys rapping and getting big because of their dream, to bullshit like Soulja Boy and middle class faggots. Im waiting for Eminem to come back and save rap ..again.

That is to say, im not a big rap fan but I do enjoy the genre. I like all sorts of music genres so ive had my fair share, and I dislike alot of American songs atm and dislike the fashion trends greatly.

Huh? Are you talking about this decade of American music? If so...yes...American Music sucks now.


American music influenced music throughtout the world. If it wasn't the blues there wouldn't no pop, rock, R&b, hip hop.

Common popular genres around the world.

American Music sucks because ppl don't want good music....they only care about the clothes, hairstyles, and dance moves of the artist.Example Lady Gaga....SO FREAKING HORRIBLE

Real talent doesn't matter anymore. There is real talent out there. U just have to stop looking for it on MTV and the radio.

Lady gaga is pretty... good I guess.
but other singers are just so horibble!
I want GOOD music... European music & Asian music = GREAT!
American music was so great before.. now its a load of rubbish.

I mean WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT SINGING A SONG ABOUT HOW HORRIBLE YOUR LIFE IS?!! (EG: GREEN DAY, PARAMORE, ETC.) Or what's so great about singing a song about taking a girl's shirt off or trying to make her happy (eg: ne-yo).
im done.

Screw shock value and stupid trends.

Concerning modern American music: Yes, it sucks, but the same goes for foreign music.

Create your own sense of style and taste.
