Reasons Autotune Sucks


The Top Ten

1 It's Fake

Trash quality

Autotune is just as fake as Nicki Minaj's plastic body. True fact. Enough said. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

"Fake" perfectly describes the state of the "music industry" since the advent of rap and hip-hop (which fail to meet the most basic definition of music), and most especially since corporations (see Disney) began cranking out "artists" appealing to those "tweens" who wouldn't know music from a hammer forge playing percussion for a bag of squawlling cats.

Real singers should've out there, no fakers.
