    This is a discussion that I've always had at school and I just wanted to ask you guys, do you consider it to be music?

    Well, I don't.

    I find it to be a sub-genre of Techno...

    I don't feel qualified to vote, since I've heard very little, but from what I've heard others say about it and from what Dubstep I have heard, I would say no. Sounds even less musical than the beats behind most rap these days, like a bunch of electronic sound effects.

    As far as I'm concerned it's not music. It's a bastardization of sound.

    Which is odd, since I absolutely love techno, and I've heard a lot of people compare dubstep to techno.

    You'd have to define what music is first.

    Regardless of how I feel about it, if you think it sounds good, then it is good.

    ***le sigh***
    Why do you care? If enough people say NO will dubstep be deleted from 1000's of IPods the world over? Will dubstep artists be forced to pick up an instrument and create music the traditional way? Seriously who the fuck cares.

    Or is this just another “Music that I don't like sucks” thread?

    Which is just a subset of "I disagree with current pop culture, therefore society is in decline."

    How do you define music?

    Dubstep is a series of rhythmic and semi-rhythmic tones artistically put together for the enjoyment of its listeners, ergo it is music.

    It might not be music you like, but it is music.



    Which is just a subset of what I call "BAWWWWWWWWWW" threads, of which we've been seeing a lot lately.

    Seriously, why bother creating such threads? We all know that it's up to one's taste, different people may like or don't like dubstep. And dubstep is bass sound. Just to be clear.

    For me, I do like dubstep. Not Brostep, but Dubstep.

    there ya go. IMO, it's terrible. in SS600's opinion, it's good. this whole music thing is all a matter of taste and interest. however, the thread that Nacht started is acceptable cause it's about music in general.

    I like Dubstep, is it music? Of course it is, how could it not be? If you don't like a certain type of music that's fine, but it's still music.

    Is it music? Yes. Does that mean you have to like it? No. Now go eat your cereal.

    I'm fairly certain Dubstep is a new name to give techno/house/trance music to make it sound modern and hip. Like any type of music, some is good, some is.

    Exactly. I like some Dubstep, but I don't flip tables when other people tell me that they don't. There's other important things to worry about.
