I listen to a lot of rap. This is mostly because the kind of clever I enjoy in older rock has mostly disappeared in the new grunge-and-metal stuff in favor of formulaic music and lyrics principally about how much life sucks when you're a middle-class white boy.

Rap, on the other hand, remains innovative and clever. There are certainly artists I can't stand, but the entire genre isn't musically bankrupt.

Because you're a racist stooge, you're clearly trying to contrive a way to hold white people listening to black music in contempt. I listen to good music and white people haven't made any good music since the early 80s.

Incidentally, your taste in music sucks and so do you.

I've actually started to become attached to Australian (and New Zealander) hip-hop. Much, much less egotistical, and there's something different in the sound that I find appealing.

However, rock is still king.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I love rock, it's just that I find a lot of stuff from the last couple of decades really tedious and self-important.

This is called "emo".Any techno-industrial people out there?

I can't be bothered writing specific songs so just any 10 from anything classic(Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Rolling Stones, The Doors, Aerosmith, Faith No More, Exponents, etc). And more recently I have come across a "band" which is pretty funny. The quote is "Brad sucks, a one man band with no fans" and the guys album is called "I Don't Know What I'm Doing". He gives his music away for free and is surprisingly not crap. It can be found here if anyones interested.

1) Learn what "emo" is before you discuss it.
2) White people can listen to rap.
3) Plenty of white people make good music, post 80s. Perhaps I was most disturbed by the "formulaic" comment: you clearly aren't listening to the right people.
4) Wasn't rock always self-important?

I'm listening to Kelly Clarkson at the moment. Yea, so what?

Oh yes, I'm obviously racist for asking a question. I was just curious, because where I live, there are very few white people that listen to rap. And none of the bands I listen to "complain about life as middle class white boys" either. And if I suck in your eyes, that's great, but really, You've probably never even heard any of those songs, so research next time, thanks.

It's quite true that the vast majority of "white people music" has been extremely lousy for quite some time, with the quality of pop/rock falling off drastically from about 1975-on. I've heard some rare examples of good indie music from some of my old housemates that are big into the scene, but generally I stick strictly to music from the mid-60s to mid-70s (emphasis on the late 60s, of course- easily the best period for pop/rock music ever).

Unlike Alec, who presumably enjoys rap because of clever lyrics, arrangement and production, I find myself unable to enjoy the genre at all. I've always been much more of a melody/harmony guy, despising rhythm-based music and rarely paying much attention to lyrics except when I'm aware they're worth listening to (whenever the Kinks, Beatles, John Lennon or George Harrison is on, for example). As such, although some rap is inoffensive and all right as background music, it just doesn't do much for me on the whole.

Additionally, (not that I'm afraid of being labelled a racist- I'm a brown man) I do listen to and enjoy certain older forms of "black music," most notably 70s soul and funk (Earth, Wind & Fire, for example).

Again, I dispute this statement. What are you using as your baseline and what are you comparing that against?

No, you're racist because you run a forum where people wank to the memory of Hitler and slur minorities at every opportunity. I never claimed your dumb-**** question made you a racist, merely that you being a racist made your question dumb-****.

Also, I've heard most of the songs on your list and every one I have sucks.

I don't like any of these much (and while I haven't heard of Remy Shand, given his company I don't know if I want to look into him).

For "good" music I would argue that the artists I mention are craftsman in their chosen field, either lyrically, emotively or through instrumental arrangement. I am not a particular fan of country music but I am damn sure that you would be able to find stars in that category that shine/make quality music. My point was there are talented people out there who show mastery over their craft and some have even found mainstream popularity - even if it wasn't with you.

Remy Shand does not belong with N. Young, U2 or Green Day in that he is neither politically active nore is his music similar (he is R&B/Soul) but he does belong in that he shows a mastery within his element. If you do not know who he is, he is an emerging artist (one album to date, in 2002 - nominated for four Grammy's) and well worth exploring if you like that genre.

Ooh, I forgot one!

Cotton Eye Joe has a permanent place on my favorites. I'm a sucker for good fiddling.

I can appreciate a good rap. In my less conservative years, I've sung along to I Like Big Butts. Ok, ok so I still sing along... but very, very quitely.
