Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
What's your take on the popular music industry today?

[Image: z7louhfuhqod25tkmbjh.jpg]

I'm no prude but I believe that the record companies are intentionally marketing sex to young children via popular music and I see this as a problem.

It's ubiquitous but here are a few recent examples off the top of my head:

BB Talk by Miley Cyrus - A video featuring Miley in fetish "baby clothing"; song is written in 12 year old teenybopper speak but contains explicit sex references. (So it's either written for emotionally challenged adults, or sexually delinquent teens.)

Blow my Whistle - By Flo Rida - Basically a graphic description of how to give a blowjob but completely obvious euphamisms.

Truffle Butter by Nicki Minaj - A song about poop mixed with cum... literally.

And countless others.

---

Sure 100 years ago 'raunchy' entertainment was still around, but it was confined to burlesque shows or obscure venues exclusively for adults.

Rather than blasted over the airwaves which 12 year old kids listen to, or instantly available for kids to access via the internet.

-

When I mention things like this to young progressives, they usually just rebut with some spiel about how "kids have always been like that; only old codgers whine about 'kids these days'".

But fact is even if sex has always been used in popular music, the level of explicitness and availability today compared to past generations is quite different.

There's a big difference between a song like Mick Jagger's "I can't get no satisfaction" which vaguely alludes to sex, and songs which are graphic lyrical descriptions of sex acts, and music videos which are basically softcore porn.

Kind of like the difference between the levels of "violence" in a Bugs Bunny cartoon and a Saw film.

Plus in the past, the 'rebellious' music about sex and drugs was typically produced by independent artists looking to get attention, as opposed to something which was methodically churned out by major corporations.

--

So what's your opinion on this? Myself I'm pretty disgusted at the record corporations for intentionally marketing smut to children, and I think this may have a more negative affect on children's influences than a lot of people believe.

(The disproportionately high crime rate among African American youth for example may very well be influenced by the popularity of gangsta rappers; coupled with the lack of fathers in the house many young boys may end up looking at them as role models and idolizing their fictitious lifestyle).

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
One thing to be understood here: childhood as something separate and apart from adulthood is not that old a concept.

Letting Dan Simmons take the podium here for a second--

Quote:Childhood was ‘born’ in the late 1840’s, largely due to the work of its midwife Charles Dickens, and it died in the mid-1990’s (largely due to the indifference to it from all of us.)

Look at paintings of children pre-1840’s. They look bizarre because the dimensions – the ratio of head size to body size – are all wrong. They’re the proportions of shrunken adults. They’re bizarre. A Charlie Brown cartoon is closer to the head-body ratio of children than the portraits of some of the finest artists of the 15th-through-19th Centuries. The reason is that no one really paid attention to “children”; they were thought of and even visualized as miniature adults.

Through his books, Dickens helped created childhood as a protected and sentimentalized new period in a human’s life.

But it’s dead now. As Neil Postman pointed out decades ago, what separates the adult from the child is a restriction of information (and responsibilities and behaviors) for children. But when children and adults get all their information from the same source – today TV and the Internet – childhood, as a viable concept, is dead. By doing this, parents have helped remove the door to their bedroom – everything from sexual details to worries about money and mortgages now flow over the “child.”

When the cultural deliberately sexualizes the child, childhood is dead.

When children are targeted for hundreds-of-billions -of-$$$ as little consumers, childhood is dead.

(The reference to Dickens is not accidental. Dickens' family had been sent to a debtors' prison, and he worked in a blacking factory - at the age of 12. In some places in England -- Lancashire -- 80% of boys aged 10-14 were working as child labour in factories.)

Of course, the real thirst of the economic engine these days is not for human producers, but human consumers. And once again we've turned to kids (with stupid, shit parents who don't defend their own children against the nightmare of Western culture) to power the economic engine.

Remissas, discite, vivet.
God save us from people who mean well. -storm

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
I agree wholeheartedly with your post and thought it was fantastic. I'd add that not only are record companies pushing sex on children - they're also brainwashing young girls to embrace militant feminism, Meghan Trainor's song no is a perfect example in which she sings about rejecting men. This "I'm a strong independent woman who don't need no man" mentality often stems from the entertainment young girls obsess over while posting pictures of their tits and ass on Instagram to the delight of their beta orbiting cuck followers.

Absolutely. The degenerative leftist culture can be found in anything that sells. Music is no exception.

"Blow my Whistle - By Flo Rida - Basically a graphic description of how to give a blowjob but completely obvious euphamisms."

If those are his instructions, it must be asked if Flo Rida actually knows what a blowjob is.

Flo Rida sings:

"Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close"

How does putting your lips together cause a blow job to occur?

Later on:

"Show me your perfect pitch, you got it my banjo
Talented with your lips, like you blew out a candle
So amusing, now you can make a whistle with the music"

If blowing out a candle is talented, I guess everyone alive should win an award. I also find a banjo to be an odd dick metaphor but that may just be me.


The chicks mentioned make horrific music, no arguments from me. But I'll stand up for the pop rappers, at least they mimic alpha attitude. Better than all the lame dude with an acoustic guitar songs where they grovel to girls.

It's an industry run by talentless sexual deviants, mainly working to a) make money at the expense of artists with some or actual talent and b) enforce an agenda to shape the world to suit their preferences.

When artists say they "sold his soul to the devil", they mean they're getting paid to put out a mediocre (or worse) product, specifically designed to numb the mind and blindly accept everything. As soon as they want to quit or start speaking against it, they'll lose most, if not all of their accumulated wealth/fame.

Or in the words of DMX:

You want horrendous music? This is what's destroying the nation's young men:


I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

The emo/pop punk/indie hipster stuff is exactly great either.

Basically my opinion is that rock n roll bit the dust with the grunge era and beyond; up until the end of the 80s it still had an 'alpha' attitude, but then grunge and alternative rock came and rock lost its testicles.

Now it's primarily just songs about whiny teens crying because they can't get a girlfriend or because their girl dumped them for the alpha because they were too much of a 'nice guy'.

Here's another example by Meghan Trainor - basically just a guide on "how to be a pussy wipped husband", according to her a "perfect husband" should:

*Husband is obligated to 'buy her a ring', take her on dates, buy her flowers every anniversary, etc. but shouldn't care if his wife can't cook

*Always treat her "like a lady" (even if she's acting like a crazy bitch)

*Never disagree with her and treat her like she's "never wrong"

*Apologize after every fight even if wife is wrong (or he gets no sex)

*Never see his family more than hers

*Always hold the door for her (and maybe he'll get a kiss)

The alpha rap attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-attracted to you.

The sensitive rock attitude, done right, will make girls sexually-obsessed with you.

Both approaches have their advantages.

It's all Game.

1) When writing a song, tap into a core emotional truth of what you're feeling.

2) Make sure the song is emotionally-dynamic: peaks of intensity and quieter valleys that mirrors the emotional unrest that exists at the core of women.

3) Now, replace every "I feel" statement with a "You feel" statement so she feels the song is actually about her, not you. Women don't want to hear about your emotions, they want to hear you reflect their emotions back to them, which makes them ascribe your deep-perception of women to being highly-experienced with them.

Remember that old Roberta Flack song, 'Killing me softly with his song', that's had a long shelf-life in the Hip Hop and R&B community?

Quote:I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud

ie. "I felt the heat of sexual attraction, felt ashamed that someone would notice how turned on I was, but we had such a deep emotional connection."

Why? He was 'telling my whole life with his words'.

HOW NOT TO DO IT

I remember liking Chris Issak's first album when I was fourteen or so and not understanding why he wasn't more popular because he seemed like a good-looking guy with a great voice, but his next couple of albums also went nowhere.

Of course, by his third album in 1989, I'd figured girls out. No matter his looks, his songs are sending out constant signals he's a loser Beta. Here's an early one:

Quote:I keep on dancin', dancin'.
Nothing left to say, nothing left to do.
I find myself alone, I'm thinking just of you.
You got me dancin', dancin'.
Why don't you help me? Why don't you guide me?
Why don't you promise to stand beside me?
There was a man in a foreign land, in love with a woman that didn't understand.
Love is not a thing you command, love is something that keeps you
And keeps you.. dancin'

He's expecting the women to lead him and wonders why he's alone. Note the 'Why don't you...' litany of complaints that would read as male entitlement.

Or a song like this:

Quote:Think of all the things we've done and now, you've decided I'm not the one.
A love like ours just can't go on, run away baby have your fun but,
I, I, I, I, don't wana hurt you I don't wanna see you cry.
I, I, I, I, just wanna hold your love tonight.
You owe me some kind of love.

Those "I..." sections are him apologising for being dumped, and then he caps it off with the male entitlement of 'You owe me....' I can hear the pussy drying up from here. Once a woman is no longer attracted to you, she feels she doesn't owe you anything.

By the 90's, I could recognise this sort of thing, so could predict figures like Matthew Sweet or Evan Dando would never gain much traction with women despite record companies hyping them hard.

So why did Issak finally have a hit record, two years after its original release, and raise his value with women? Nothing more than social proof: a video where he sulked on a beach with topless supermodel Helana Christensen. The original, supermodel-free video a year before gained no attention at all.

HOW TO REALLY NOT DO IT

Artists like Robert Smith of the Cure, or Andy Partridge of XTC.

At first Andy was like:

Quote:Church of women is making donations of loving and giving
Church of women performing that miracle raising the living
Like us men, like us men will they ever like us men?
Men have thorns around their minds
I'm on my mount and preaching
Want to worship at the church of women
Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning round
Want to worship at the church
Let me worship at the church of women

Yeah, I could see this wasn't going to end well.

A little while later:

Quote:Well I stumbled and I fell like a wounded horse
When I found out you'd been riding another man

Laugh2

And then he was like:

Quote:F U C K, is that how you spell 'friend' in your dictionary?
S H I T, is that how you spelt me in your dictionary?
Four-eyed fool, you led 'round everywhere
Now your laughter has a hollow ring
But the hollow ring has no finger in
So let's close the book and let the day begin
And our marriage be undone

Facepalm

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
Degenerate pop music wouldn't be so bad if every female artist was hot.

But no, we get to watch giant fat bitches like Adele and Megan Trainor waddle their asses all the way up the billboard top 100.

Fuck this gay earth.

I don't know about you guys, but I can "hear" how fat a girl is. Being subjected to fat bitches pretending to be choosy with their men just drives me up a wall. Trainor is the worst offender here, unlike Adele she does the whole talking-instead-of-singing thing, another annoying as fuck modern musical trend.

“I have a very simple rule when it comes to management: hire the best people from your competitors, pay them more than they were earning, and give them bonuses and incentives based on their performance. That’s how you build a first-class operation.”

Posting this here because I'm still in awe of how bad this is:





Don't know how anyone (other than maybe Jared Fogle) could find this "hot".

Also, we have a sheltered, white country girl trying to sound like a hoodrat; what guy finds women who talk like that attractive other than other hoodrats of low social value?

AB! I think you have cracked it. You have solved "THE ISAAC CONUNDRUM."

Back in the day, I always wondered why Chris Isaak never did anything for me. He looked so good on paper. I lived in San Francisco in the early eighties and used to see him around town, surfing and stuff. Couldn't figure out why he wasn't more famous.

Could he have been the proto beta-hipster? The original infected vector from which the social pandemic has spread? The timing is right. San Francisco is right. Like AIDs, the incubation time is long, so it has time to sneak up on us.

And to think, it all started out with good looking dude in a sparkly lounge jacket, singing out his dream of women leading the relationship.

How were we to know it would lead to men getting raped in Germany and blaming themselves?

Oh, the irony of 'Wicked Game' displaying such awful game.

As far as I can tell modern pop music is completely contrived and written by a handful of people behind the scenes - the 'artists' are simply the face and image. So the music isn't music, it's a message disguised as music, hence your 'girl power' shit that's getting more and more prevalent.

BBC Radio 1 Extra (a morning radio show) is full of gangsta rap, except the swearing is bleeped out. So kids going to school are hearing these messages, and kids being kids will find out what the swearing is pretty damn quick (usually 'nigga'). It really bugs me that we pump kids' heads full of violence, swearing, and actual misogyny and then lose our shit when one of them actually repeats one of the words they hear. Plus, they have a segment each morning on 'national anthems' (whatever they're promoting as great music), and play a refrain from 'Rule Britannia'...which is not a national anthem. They also did a special on Michael Jackson, played 'Beat It', and then waxed lyrical about what a great solo SLASH performed. Professional DJs for fuck's sake. Added to that the DJs speak with appalling 'street' grammar, and it's no bloody wonder that kids are growing up stupid.

With few exceptions, I've hated popular music and used to be quite vocal about my distastes.

I used to think there was something wrong with me, that I was the asshole for guarding myself against the nonsense preached in pop music. I feel better having found some company of like-minded guys IRL and this forum.

The only "good" or let's say "trying not to promote some agenda" pop music is made by musicians who are so big that they're basically untouchable. Think Eminem. The guy has so many fans around the world that even though he's been smeared multiple times, it's never really taken off and is even a form of rebellion.
In fact I use the first few lyrics of "criminal" to piss off LGBT advocates.
Plus I don't really mind these whiny songs from male pop artists. Ed sheeran isn't having a problem, nor is Justin Bieber. I listen to and sing these songs and the girls like it. I don't act like that in real life. Don't judge me. Heh.

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
Perfect example right here; on the Ellen show they had 2 girls who look about 5 years old singing a Nicki Minaj song and then meeting her on the air:





Apparently they think a chick who sings stuff like this is a role model for young girls, most likely they'll brush it off as some kind of "female empowerment" of course.





Wonder what the reaction would be if it was two 5 year old boys singing a Little Wayne or Eminem song about doing drugs, pimpin some hos, getting in shootouts with the law, etc?

Quote:This isn’t Rihanna’s first murder. She walks through a strip club’s red velvet curtains in her new (and NSFW—again, this is a strip club) music video “Needed Me,” holding a gun with a silencer. She has a practiced hand. In the backroom, she hits her mark, a man who throws a wad of cash towards her. One shot and he crumples. Two, he falls to the floor. She fires a third for good measure.

A sure sign of the cultural rot is that the uber-bitch Rihanna is on top of the billboard charts album after album. This is a deeply damaged woman who is constantly talking about depraved sex and violence. There is no doubt in my mind that this chick certifiably insane. The fact that millions of women identify with her music is a real clarion call as to susceptible women are to media programming.

She has a practiced hand. In the backroom, she hits her mark, a man who throws a wad of cash towards her. One shot and he crumples. Two, he falls to the floor. She fires a third for good measure.

A sure sign of the cultural rot is that the uber-bitch Rihanna is on top of the billboard charts album after album. This is a deeply damaged woman who is constantly talking about depraved sex and violence. There is no doubt in my mind that this chick certifiably insane. The fact that millions of women identify with her music is a real clarion call as to susceptible women are to media programming.
Maybe she needs a Chris Brown to keep her in check.

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
From what I can see, top performers in the music industry today can be divided into two groups:

1) damaged hoes singing about how awesome they are and how everyone should worship their supreme bitchiness;
2) effeminate men singing in high pitched voices about how terribly in love they are with whatever girl keeps on ignoring them.

Tune in to any big radio station in your area, and within 15 minutes you'll hear a song from an 'artist' belonging to one of the two groups above. And if my memory serves me well, this phenomenon of hoes/faggots in the music industry is not more than 10 years old. I remember my high school days in the early 2000s, music like this didn't exist back then.

Not to mention 17 year old rappers still living with momma and working a summer job at Burger King singing about how rich they are and how many hos they're pimpin'

I think the digital era is what is killing pop music.

Now that 12 year old boys and girls have instant access to Itunes and YT music videos, they can market shitty music directly to the kids via the internet.

In the past there was more parental oversight so the music had to have some redeeming value in order for parents to buy it for their kids.

(The only standard now if any is that it be politically correct - and push a slutty 'feminist' narrative to girls; rappers do seem to be the exception to the rule as far as political correctness goes, probably because rap is associated with the black community and left wingers want to avoid alienating one of their demographics).

At one time the music of The Beatles was considered to be unwholesome and degenerate.

Times sure have changed...

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
I was in a bar over the weekend when Selena Gomez's 'come and get it' came on. The intro is a sample from an Indian song and I was struck by how it contrasted with the song itself once the beat kicks in and Selena starts singing. I found a version with the Indian intro extended here:





Pure, simple and soulful. Loud, obnoxious, vacuous. The contrast is absurd.

From what I can find the sampled song is in Punjabi or Hindi and is a lament by a man who is missing his wife. It might be bluepilled, but you can afford to be if you are to marry a virgin you have known since childhood. And it reminded me that there are still pockets of this all around the world, from Africa and India to areas of eastern Europe. Men and women in villages, small towns and rural areas with mating options severely restricted by geography coupling up and falling in love at a young age. Their shared memories create bonds I don’t think we can imagine in the atomized west, having known each other since childhood and growing up in the same community. Knowing the same people and their habits, the characters, the pillars of the community, the vagrants. Growing up with memories of the same places, the river the children would swim in, the cricket field, the schoolyard, the market. They are bonded not only by being part of the same community, but importantly by geography.

This is contrasted with the west where we move around so much we often end up unattached to any particular place. And eventually two geographically detached, atomised individuals, whose pair-bonding mechanism has been atrophied by casual relationships, are expected to come together and fall in love in the same way people did hundreds of years ago. People who would have been bonded by geographical proximity over such a length of time that it would actually hurt to be away from one another. People who became not just husband and wife, but family.

And this is how we end up with this contrast. A sincere lament evoking true emotion contrasted with vapid, overly-sexualised pop music sung with no emotional authenticity. The west has forgotten the basis of healthy long-lasting relationships, equating it with nice feelings, rather than a bond built by time and shared geography, and in the case of women at least, undiluted by having multiple sexual partners. Lacking any understanding or experience of these deep bonds, for our music to be relatable it must reflect what we do have experience of – sex.

RE: Modern popular music - a sign of degeneracy?
There are two main reasons for why popular music has reached the bottom of the barrel over the past decade or so. The first is related to the actual business:





The second is less tangible as it is related to a increasing lack of identity and cultural cohesion among Western populations. A generation in which women are pitted against men and don't want to bear children anymore, minorities (not for long) are pitted against whites, in which gender lines are blurred beyond recognition, acute population replacement has become the norm, and where one economic crisis follows the next while net wages are stagnant, is not one that feels inspired to produce memorable art or music.

Obviously this is a comprehensive topic but at the core of it all sits the pseudo-nihilistic assumption that everything is relative and only your perception matters:





In a nutshell: the best way to demoralize and to control people is to rob them of their own culture, to take away what binds and inspires them to live up to a higher standard or a bigger cause. The destruction of families via pandering toward queers and sexual deviants is only a part of a bigger endeavor to destroy the West as we know it. And all one has to do is to look outside one's window to realize that their goal has been pretty much accomplished.
