Anything that 'rapper' Lil wayne spits out
I completely agree with you. The things he says and the things he sings about are utter garbage!
Half of the "songs" these "artists" write about are about doing drugs, clubbing at some party, or getting laid!
I also can't stand Any song by "grindcore" or "deathcore" bands like Dr. Acula, Job For A Cowboy, All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, etc.
The "songs" sound more like noise than actual music.
Music consists of rhythm and melody...not screaming like a two year old and having someone bang on the drums as fast as possible.
But there is just one particular song that really really REALLY grinds my gears!
Obviously, "Friday" by Rebecca Black.
There is no poetic or symbolic meaning in the lyrics of this "song."
What pisses me off about this song is that there are thousands, no, MILLIONS of local bands in the world who would KILL to get some form of record deal.
They spend HOURS practicing the correct rhythm and melody of the song, writing meaningful lyrics and working day in and day out just to get one or two songs recorded in some recording studio.
They also play local shows in front of just family and friends, and they don't even get paid. If they do, they get money just to get gas in the car.
Meanwhile, this kid writes some "song" about how she spends her Fridays and what days come afterwards, and gets a record label. Not to mention her video went completely viral and got recognition for the wrong reasons.
Her entire song is autotuned, so machines and technology are making her sing in key rather than getting trained by a professional to sing in key.
Her vowels are so terrible that it sounds like a person with no voice training attempted to sing that song.
I also feel horrible for the people who work 40+ hours a week just to get dinner on the table for his/her family, and work hard to pay the bills, feed the family, and work to get the mortage for the house paid off.
Meanwhile, Miss Black gets millions for writing a song about a day of the week.
I'm sorry for the rant, everyone. It just really upsets me when talented people don't get the recognition they deserve.
