Discussion regarding other bands, movies, etc.
Hip hop has its place, not saying it doesn't, I just think its a problem its become this massive thing, so a lot of kids today will think that a song is this four chord loop thing or just a riff that's repeated or something that's been sampled and then sung over. The complete opposite of what kids in say the 70's grew up with. Music back then was much more challenging to the ear and songs weren't written in a day as many songs are now and people were exposed to much richer harmony and rhythms and complex songs. Keith Richards probably spent weeks writing and perfecting the intro to Angie e.g. This dumbing down of music saddens and worries memockbee wrote: ↑Sun Jan 05, 2020 4:24 amMaybe a cultural thing..... ?

Maybe not so much where you are from?
Seems on the Europe side France/UK has some strong roots as well, with Italy/Netherlands/Belgium making a showing.
Not saying you can't appreciate it, just the visceral connection maybe lacking....
