The only dubstep I've heard has been that asshole Skrillex, and I want to hit him in the face with a rock. Not only does his music completely suck, but he's a total doucher to boot.

Guess what, shitbird, you smashing a MacBook on stage is not even remotely close to what that gesture is intended to mean. Paul Stanley should kick your ass immediatley.

I wasn't either until I had my co-worker explain it to me. Even then I had no idea so I youtoobzed it. Fucking horiffic.

Dubstep is basically Mariah Carey vocal hooks combined with the sound of Transformers getting butt raped.

Good, but just don't fall in line with the rest of the unlistened ignoramuses saying HURR DURR DUBSTEPS LEIK 56K NOISE. I'm not defending it as groundbreaking or extremely meaningful music, but I do like the genre and it provides me with a feeling I don't get from other kinds of music. That's my aril-esque counterpoint for ya.

I honestly have a hard time listening to any "music" that isn't guitar driven. Perhaps it comes from 23 years of wrestling with the foolish 6 stringed piece of wooden frustration, but computer generated noises do absolutely nothing for me. I went to a rave once probably 17 years ago, and wanted to incinerate the place.

I don't know a whole lot about it, but the genres and sub-genres of electronic music have just as many factions as punk or metal. There's even a sub-genre called "hardcore".

And just like in punk/metal, I often tend to like the oddball acts in electronic music...

re: that techno comment above -

there's also the actual style called techno, too (not just the catch-all term for electronic music). it started when sci-fi obsessed black dudes in shit-ass detroit in the early 80s combined nerdy white euro robot music like Kraftwerk with shit like Parliament Funkadelic.

some of it can be really bad-ass and strange.

I only posted the Skrillex video cause it's the only song I could positively ID. I sometimes go to shitty clubs that play shitty music in attempts to bring home shitty women and as a result have heard more dubstep than I care to admit. I just have no idea who any of the other artists are that the djs happen to be spinning. Dubstep is ok when I'm completely drunk and grinding on some club slut.
