Top Ten Reasons Dubstep Is the Worst Genre of Music

ToptenPizza

The Top TenXW

1Computers Are Not Instruments

So what if it's not being played with an instrument? There are many excellent and legendary pieces of music which have been recorded without traditional instruments. It's not detracting from what music is defined by, it's simply developing our technologies. The fact is, it's still music, and for one thing, it better qualifies as music than the autotune junkies that dominate the pop and rap industry. - PositronWildhawk

So? Combining synths and making good progression can make up for the difficulty of playing actual instruments. Electronic music also takes talent, and also Dubstep!

What did I just tell you? Dubstep for the win! - DynastiSugarPop

I love dub step! - Therandom

2The Artists Have Stupid Names

Rock bands and jazz crooners also have bizarre names, but is that good reason to attack the genre? - PositronWildhawk

Damn, I guess this means I shouldn't listen to Jefferson Airplane or the Strawberry Alarm Clock anymore. :( - PetSounds

And this effects their music because? - gemcloben

Other artists from Pop to country have weird names too

3It Takes Zero Effort

How to play a dubstep music live:

1. Have a bunch of kids on drugs stand in a crowd
2. Press a single button on a new-looking laptop that plays the song
3. Do some lame dancing and tell the crowd to get "pumped"
4. Oh don't forget the ugly seizure lights!

It isn't hard to record a sound, record another sound, and play the two sounds together. - ToptenPizza

Well didn't walking take no effort,no,but it is still important,and sleeping also takes no effort,but it's Leo still important - Nateawesomeness

4It Is the Result of Nerds Messing Around In Their Garage

That's what most Hip Hop and Rap do

That is pretty much how dubstep was made. That is how indie was made, but at least they PLAY ACTUAL MUSIC! - ToptenPizza

5Takes No Talent to Make

Honestly, I'd like to see you try to make anything on the level of Electus, Gemini and Fractal. If you actually just mash lots of noises together like you think you're doing it, I'm sure it'll sound nothing like it. Commercial dubstep may be bad, but a lot of undergrounded dubstep is mellifluous and often meaningful. Dubstep is not just messing with computers, it's a pioneering art form. So stop posting ounces of nonsense about something you know too little about. - PositronWildhawk

Anyone with internet access can press some buttons and make a series of sounds. - ToptenPizza

It isn't just pushing buttons,it also takes the right fingering,because of the diffrent pitches and tunes made, - Nateawesomeness

6It Is Just Bleeps and Bloops

Is it? If it was just bleeps and bloops, and not ordered into a progressing rhythm with a mix of dark and subtle sounds, it wouldn't have been classed as a genre of music, now, would it? Admittedly, some of it does not pick up on these rhythms, but in the bigger picture, it's a fluctuative variation of bass, whether heavy, chilled or progressive. Its subgenres have often been mixed with and influenced by elements of similar genres such as trance, or highly different genres such as classical. It just goes to show that dubstep musicians are, in fact, highly intuitive and diverse, and that's why it can't be generalised. - PositronWildhawk

Well, I could make the same arguments for your ever-hated rap, Pos. - keycha1n

9The Artists Dress Like Idiots

Other artist have weird costumes too

Ugh no one sees you just stay in your pajamas - ToptenPizza

10It Is Repetitive

Well Hip Hop is repetitive. Same as heavy metal and rock.

They do the same thing again and again except maybe "ding" insead of "dong" - ToptenPizza

So it is the ONLY type of music that has repetitiveness? Is that what you are telling me? Also "ding" and "dong" hardly do credit. I know this entire page was meant to be a joke and I don't care. - ROBO_SPARTAN
