Is the music of today good or bad?
I know I'm not the only person familiar with rap. I think rap music is one of the worst influences on children who listen to it. Rap music delivers incredibly obnoxious messages, like "gettin' paper" and "smack dat ass." The reason I bring up rap is because I think the hip hop genre is the most popular in my age group, and rap is the reason why I think music is bad these days.
I think we humans aren't expressing our full emotional potential with our music today, but rather marketing. Music doesn't inspire anymore, but instead it leads the blind. People blindly follow themes that are absolutely counterproductive to a functional humanity, and its somewhat disappointing. Having said this, I can say that I'm no expert in music. I myself don't listen to very much except for what is played around me. TED members can give me their ideas however, and hopefully they can support music.
