Top Ten Ways to Improve the Modern Music Industry


The Top Ten

1 Create More Heavy Metal Bands

People have a terrible stereotype that heavy metal is full-on screaming death metal. I need to get into my family's heads that the music I listen to is not that. Avenged Sevenfold's City Of Evil is a good example of this. - Lem

They should also have more foreign bands get distribution to the us if that foreign band wanted to have another country listen to them.

I would say in general, have more talent. It doesn't matter the genre. - SwagFlicks

I'm in one, so I might be able to help with this. - AngryByrd

2 Create More Hard Rock Bands

Per #1. - SwagFlicks

3 Get Rid of Teenage Pop Singers

They used to be good like Michael jackson and stevie wonder now it's the opposite like Justin beiber and Miley Cyrus - simpsondude

I think that rather than getting rid of all teenage pop singers, we should replace them with ones who can actually sing and make quality songs, I like to believe those still exist if we just looked for them and gave them attention. - sofiav

Individual acts usually have only an 18-24 month shelf life, but there will always be a new one coming up.

I agree to Jared, I mean there is Alessia Cara. - kontrahinsunu

4 Stop Using Autotune

In other words, put talent and work into it. - PositronWildhawk

We need singers who don't use autotune on radios worldwide.

Instead of using autotune learn singing - zxm

So kids bop can no longer exist

6 If You Want To Be A Good Rapper, Listen To Every Tupac Shakur Song

Rap. yes you can rap. just add some rock/metal music in your songs and have some talented guitarists,drummers,bassist,keyboardists - zxm

7 If You Want to Be a Pop Singer, Listen to Michael Jackson

MJ straight up ripped off James Brown's act, and his singing ripped off Jackie Wilson and Frankie Lymon; listen to them.

8 Reintroduce "Talent" to the Radio
9 Get music producers to stop writing annoying pop songs for annoying pop singers and let them write their own. Yeah, good luck.
10 Put Morals and Values Back Into Music

What about rappers like Tupac? Who talk about women's rights and other important things?

Who cares. I'm so sick and tired of songs about partying, drinking, doing drugs, and having no real message.

If you actually look into genres such as rap and pop, they actually still have amazing themes today. - SwagFlicks

Impossible while Rap and Rappers exist.

Rap is great if you look past what's popular. Go to BIggie, Pac, and... Not Eminem lol. - bunnyluv070

The Contenders

11 Put Justin Bieber and His Music In the Trash Where It Belongs

He's taking care of that all on his own, thankfully.

12 Inform more people about how rock and metal are not Satanic
13 Let 'N Sync Teach One Direction How to Sing

Totally! This is the only boy band that I will EVER like. I did not grow up when they were popular (I was too young), but I love their music. Their looks were advertised (This IS a boy band), but at least they had talent, and good music. - bunnyluv070

No, you got it wrong, let Boyz II Men take care of it.

Both 'N Sync and One Direction are bad, but both of them are basically done at this point. - SwagFlicks

14 Stop Buying Bad Music

Most of us live in free countries and I am afraid nobody can ban or eliminate pop, rap or whatever you don't like (there are some items on this list with this message). But if people stop buying crap this crap will disappear. This can happen if people get more music knowledge and information.
I am a metal fan and I am pretty happy with my choice. Metal is a huge and very diverse genre and there is something for everyone. I mean, even if somebody doesn't like fast and heavy riffs and beats, there are great metal ballads that are way better than the overplayed songs on your average radio. Metal is not all-screaming, on the contrary - dare to say that the best singers are currently in metal. And yes, the majority of the metal bands are not satanic. - Metal_Treasure

15 Teach Nicki Minaj How to Write Quality Songs

Don't bother trying. Even if she had Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Holland-Dozier-Holland working for her, it wouldn't help her sound any better.

Even if she had help from all the songwriters I know(Wonder, Gaye, Lennon/McCartney, Prince, Jagger/Richards, Dylan, Holly, Perkins, Berry,) and even all of the Classical composers like Beethoven and Mozart, I don't know if it would work out.

16 Make Lil Wayne Listen to Some Tupac and Biggie So He Can Learn What Real Rapping Is

17 Stop singing and rapping about Sex, Drugs and Money

Mike Shinoda is probably the only rapper who DOESN'T rap about that stuff. - Lem

There's still people who make those types of material meaningful, you just have to actually prod around until you find them. - SwagFlicks

There IS a way to make these topics meaningful. rappers and pop singers don't know how. - ThatStrangeKid42

18 Stop Disney from Making Terrible Teen Actors/actresses Into Terrible Teen Singers

Talented rock/metal teenagers are playing great music in their garages while talentless teenagers come to disney and make themselves famous. - zxm

Thank you for adding this. One of the worst problems. Take Arianna Grande and (the old) Miley Cyrus, but the new one socks even more. - Alpha101

19 Eliminate All Rap

Rap isn't music to me. Rock dominates rap - Sabbath

Cannot actually be considered music.

It can be considered music, because it fits into the definition. - SwagFlicks

At least make rap like it was back in the 90's. Where it had real, REAL messages.

To Pimp A Butterfly, Run the Jewels 1 and 2, Tetsuo and Youth, good kid MAAD city, section.80, Eminem Show, MMLP 1 and 2, Madvillainy, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, All Hands

All are 21st century hip-hop albums off the top of my head that stand the test of time as modern classics. - WonkeyDude98

20 Create Singing Competition For Aspiring Metal Singers
