The "Song that Killed Music" Thread

post #1 of 174
Thread Starter 
It's a cliché to say that music gets worse with every generation, from people whining about Elvis and the Beatles in their time to rap today. I'm pretty sure at some point an old African shaman or whatever thought to himself "boy, these young guys are killing percussion".

So, in a way, every time there's a new thing, I guess a reasonably intelligent person could assume that maybe it's not as bad as it seems and it's not as that different from whatever that person liked when he was young(er) and stupid(er). That being said, there has to be a point in which music truly becomes irredeemable and one can reasonably assume such an opinion is actually objective.

Case in point.
What the fucking cocksucking motherfucking shit is this?
Have I finally found the objectively-speaking worst song ever made? Or, do you all know of a song that's worse than this? To be honest, I find it fascinating in a trainwreck atop Treblinka kind of way.

The only redeeming thing is the chick's expression at 2:09, thoroughly pissed off and possibly repeating in her mind "at least I'm not doing porn".

I hate them for existing, I hate the industry that supports them existing, and now I hate you for bringing my attention to the fact that they exist.

Good god, was that even REAL, or did I HALLUCINATE it?

Fantastic, I can't wait for the upcoming EP.
Or like babygirlkay8494 so fittingly says in the comments;

I'm a bit shocked they're not hugely successful. They've got all the elements of total musical trash; they should be rolling in dough.

Damn you for bringing this to my attention - I need a brain wipe

After reading those lyrics I was expecting some hardcore gangsta rappers doing a clubbing song. What the shit?
There's a funny moment(:56 in) where the pink-shirted fellow is lip-syncing his almighty "RAHHHHHH!" and looks like he threw up in his mouth a smidgen. Then he attempts to play it off by fiddling with his mop.

I agree. Give them time.

They're bound for obscurity or HUGE success... flip a coin.

I'd say in 2 years, either them or another band of the same "genre"* will be rather succesful.

*The fact that, despite evidence, I'm sure this either is or will be a "genre" makes me want to club seals, or Seal, or something.

Post-music. This is brilliant.

Oh, and this.

Holy shit I need one of the Men In Black mind eraser things.

It reminds me of one of those unfunny Andy Sanberg SNL Digital Shorts.

They should die.

Oh god, I looked at their MySpace page. They're from "Albucrazy, New Mexico".

And you guys were bitching about Van Halen?????

Time for some 'cock rock' antidote.

When I first started reading this thread, before I had clicked on the link, I though to myself "Whatever is posted couldn't be worse than Brokencyde."

The asshole in the pink shirt...is that ALL that he does? (beat, beat, beat...'RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH'...beat, beat, beat...'RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH'...repeat ad nauseum)

How can that much talent exist within one band? It's amazing.

That is fucking hilarious.

Rhyming "Saget" with "faggot" was particularly inspired.

"I drink so much they call me Charlie 40-hand"

Awesomeness.

Ya know what, it's utter crap. But the comic value is high. Many sitcoms aren't even unintentionally funny.

The joke is on us. These musicians are gaining hits and giving themselves hi-fives. You can only watch something ironically if you've stolen it. Otherwise, you are approaching hipster-level retardation.
post #22 of 174
A common thread linking all this wack shit together: Autotune. If these are the songs that are killing music, Autotune is the razor-sharp blade of the knife being dragged across music's jugular vein.

I find it hard to believe THESE musicians would get hits.

Okay, maybe not so hard to believe.

These peckerheads are trying to look unhinged like slipknot, but then belt out with the lightweight crap. They should at least have like six people jumping and banging on various drums.

Yeah, those youtube fees are really standing in the way of my ironic appreciation. Fuck, I can't believe I've been had again. Damn you, brokeNCYDE!!!!

Eh. They at least understand rhythm and melody. The guy's voice isn't that bad, it's just those lyrics.

Man.....those lyrics.

Is it Broken Side or Broke Inside?

Not at all.

I bet there is no answer, anyway.

People. The holidays are a time when individuals prone to depression* tend to feel even more bummed than usual. There are certain places where those individuals go to feel safe, and, however momentarily, leave the holiday woes behind. CHUD is one of those places for me.

Now, because of this place, I am aware of the existence of goddamned Brokencyde and will be humming "let's get freaky now, let's get fucking freaky now" to myself for weeks.

I hate you, thread.

*For example, bald guys who hang out on messageboards and are named "Will."

Did anyone notice that one of the members of brokeNCYDE calls himself "se7en"? That is awesome. It shows how hardcore he is to be using that movie title for a stage name. Although I think "Willow" or "Rudy" would have been just as badass.

Needs more Uhhhhhnnnnn.

And I'd like to thank our German associate and attorney at Law Jan for shipping this over to me after my constant Tokio Hotel related harassment

This is moving away from "songs that killed music" into mere "inspired lunacy". Which is fine.

The drum & bass Inspector Gadget is part of a proud tradition.

If we are going full blown wtf in this thread, there's always this masterpiece and if anyone understands spanish, there's this.

edit: Actually, now that I've already posted a song in spanish here, I might as well turn you all into bigots.

Samwell's got something to say about this lovely thread.
