so many genres are represented badly in the mainstream, when you hear about something like goth on the news, not one single person has any idea what it is. they say things like 'its uh.. being depressed.. and uh .. cutting yrself' its terrible, because the news/tv is SUPPOSED to be a valuable source for information, but they just are completely uninformed. and metal... im watching some show on VH1 thats apparently about metal.. its pathetic, the slowest (and not good doomy/sludgy slow, just boring slow), shittiest riffs, with the worst d&d inspired vocals, i hate this kind of metal. the closest thing they have to good metal is some early thrash, and sometimes theyll play something good by accident, like black sabbath (but a shitty song). theres more to metal than fucking DIO and van halen. most of the shit they play is hard rock to me. dont even get me started on 'emo'. even though i dont even like REAL emo that much, its ten times better than scene kids with lame haircuts and girlpants. another genre destroyed by the media. and last but not least.. fucking punk rock. if anyone ever tries to tell me greenday are ANY kind of punk rock, ill shoot them in the face. its just horrible. its not even like i want underground music played on tv or anything, im just sick of false information being flooded across screens around the world. mass spreading of misinformation. anyone agree?
