Pop music wouldn't be what it is today without MJ

Justin Beiber, Brittney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Usher, Katy Perry

All of them are Michael Jackson's offspring

The pop music today isn't selling like it once did years ago.

Kids basically download songs that they like, don't buy CD's.

Of course, none of those artists are going to be Pink Floyd, right?

Bands back in the late sixties to eighties actually sold records.

They built sales over a long period of time.

It's laughable that MJ helped destroy the music industry today.

So many untalented goons recording to pre recorded backing tracks.

A total rip off but kids actually believe this crap is great stuff.

None of it will never match the talent of the older generation.

Music should be recorded live in a studio with people playing.

Artists should be doing live music on stage, not miming through it.

It's lower standards that should've never been accepted but is.

But things can change.

Real talent tends to still stand the true test while others fade.

MJ never intended to be such an impact on music that money hungry corporate suits would spend billions to replicate his success.

The music industry is suffering right now because they refused to evolve with the internet, creatively and business wise.

Too many musicians are safe with their creativity; trying to piggyback off of legends like MJ, Pink Floyd, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Prince, Whitney Houston, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc.

Too many label execs are signing these copy/paste artists because they're safe investments.

I wouldn't call most of the pop acts today musicians.

I would like to see people recording music live in the studio.

Vocals, guitar, bass, drums, horns all recorded and mixed in one place.

I think what happened was it's cheaper for the industry to pro tool.

Which makes most of what comes out today sound pretty much the same.

There's a lack of talent and creativity in doing that.

Pre recorded beats over a vocal is simply much cheaper to record.

And the recording that is too perfect which robs the music of its warmth.

The recording industry does this because they can make a profit.

It is sold to kids that really have no clue what is good or not.

It's just beat driven music to dance to or watch the artist dance to it.

Before the end of the eighties, there were still bands that played.

The few bands today are mostly doing the same as the pop acts are.

The music suffers as a result because its computerized music, not live.

Yet there are some real talent out there but it's just the standard.

I refuse to buy such crap because I want to hear real heartfelt artists.

Too much mail in performances that aren't original, Glee for example.

It cheapens the original performances by copying them note for note.

The music industry will only spend money on certain pop acts that sell.

There's no long term sales for any of these acts to build upon.

It's basically grab as much money as possible before that next big thing.

I understand your perspective. I think the good that will come out of this situation is that as the value of pop music lessens, the more valuable stage performance & live music will become.

Its so easy to get music now thanks to the internet. But a great live performance will always be a unique experience every single time.

I believe that if new artists put more effort in touring and making their shows one of a kind, they can prosper in today's industry even though their music is free online.

The music industry caters to a youth market which is mostly dance pop.

That's why new musical shows like American Idol and Glee are so popular.

The way most people listen to music has changed, that's all.

The physical CD format is no longer needed. People go for certain songs.

Years ago, the industry signed many acts and promoted them.

MTV was a excellent way for an artist to boost record sales.

Today, it's just a downsized market.

People can find just about any song on the internet and hear it for free.

An unknown artist has very little time to build an audience.

That hurts the quality of the new recordings people hear, right?

The recording industry latches on to what sells and signs copycat acts.

There's very little creativity and art involved.

It's all about making the most money as quickly as possible now.

Their music is a combination of boring and annoying. Why anyone would even call it music is something for which I have no explanation.
