NEM bought a lotta noise about which genre it belonged to, but my point is do we even care about the genre of a song??
Dont we listen to songs which belong to other genre's ??
I surely do, ''the only thing which attracts me to a song is how it sounds'' LoLzz
Different bands are classified as Metal,Pop,Rock,Heavy-Metal,Hip-hop etc, according to what kinda music they make at the starting of their careers and that tag remains with them from there on. Even if they try to do something different that tag still remains with them and this adds to the confusion of this so called genre debate of music.
So can you make out the difference between Rock and Metal, for me Rock is what Greenday makes and Metal is what Metallica makes. But again you cant't call NEM a metal-metal song but on the other hand One is all out metal.
Greenday is classified as Rock but their songs have a tinge of the Pop in them.
Talking of Pop music, BSB , Westlife and Blue have shades of hip-hop, classic,country feels to them.
So all this leaves us to one thing i.e music is intertwined be it whatever genre, music has always given us the much needed jolt and courage or whatever is does for you to make you alive again.
Music rocks :)
So lets make Peace not War on music.
One more thought ill have to add to this post, Iv seen people all around abusing pop music 'I agree the Pop culture has its moles' but I am sure at some point of time you all must have enjoyed the songs of Abba ,BoneyM, Venga boys, Celion Dion,Britney Spears,Blue,BSB..........too long a list.
I have grown up listening to them and I can proudly say 'I love Pop music' though I listen to alota metal and Rock but my first love will always remain pop which includes Indi-pop 'but I prefer the classic pop more :)'
All i'd like to say is just dont go on abusing pop-music in order to make a mark or look cool cuaz I am sure you cant dance on metal.
Next time you abuse Pop, you gota face me :):)
