Kendrick Lamar has won the Pulitzer Prize for music for "DAMN" the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the award. by foxinyourboxGoogle Music in Music

Rap absolutely gets undeserved shit for it. You are just one of many people to give rap shit for it, including those Fox News hosts sampled on DNA. The difference is that while country music is given shit for being dumb, rap music is criticized by the right in an attempt to paint black people as complicit in their own oppression and in the violence that has been caused by decades of poverty and racism. No one has ever accused country music of causing gang violence or encouraging kids to use drugs.

Pop music is all about partying, being in love, or breakups. Shakespeare's plays are all about love, murders, or British history. If you reduce any art to its broad topics you can make it seem limited.

By the way the most popular musical on Broadway right now is a rap musical about the Revolutionary War. It won 11 Tonys, a Grammy, and a Pulitzer, so you can't exactly say that raps about other topics "don't surface." You just need to pay more attention before you criticize.

Haven't tried Cardi B yet, gave up doing Cardi O a week after new years though.

Edit: My first gold! This being /r/music, there are so many people I'd like to take the time to thank. Mom and Dad for giving me my twisted sense of humor. My wife for not being offended by it. To my kids, who should be asleep now, it's only 6AM! And of course to you kind anonymous redditor for making this all possible.

Anyone know if these things can go platinum?

Lol "this trash". You have obviously never listened to his albums and objectively compared it to others.

Exactly what 'stories' does this guy tell in his lyrics? I see people make this statement all the time yet I read the lyrics and there's absolutely nothing different than every other hip hop song out there with a bunch of nonsense and rambling incoherent lyrics that don't string together.

Are his albums epic 70 minute concept albums or something, cause this trash just seems like everything else out there.

Depressing Song Recommendations? by Timbo_R4zE in Music

Man, "Carrie and Lowell" is sad. Personally, I feel like "Fourth of July" is probably the most depressing track on the record.

Arctic Monkeys Announce New Album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (out May 11) by shabuluba in Music

They went in an almost entirely different direction with AM - More "Stoner Rock" than Alt-Punk. If you liked AM, check out a band called Modesta. They're small time, but much their music is in the same vein and is very very good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyA30TJLXAU

Edit: Thank you for the gold!

John Bonham's isolated drum track from "Fool in the Rain" by Led Zeppelin. This is from the band's final album in 1979, one year before Bonham died at the age of 32. {non-music video} by GuyFromOjai in Music

[–]GuyFromOjai[S] 57 points58 points  (0 children)

It's because of this sub's ridiculous posting rules and automatic removal system. If I hadn't put "{non-music video}" in the title, the AutoModerator would have automatically removed the post since apparently Led Zeppelin is too good to post here (literally, take a look at rule number 1).

It's an absurd and archaic system to ban an entire band or musician's discography outright, simply because they have a string of huge hits. We should be able to post stuff like this or even rare B-sides or deep tracks most people haven't heard of. Do you think those would be more well-known/overplayed, or the songs that are currently on the front page of this sub? Also, can you name a single other place where having your favorite band inducted into the "Hall of Fame" isn't a cause for celebration but instead a cause for mourning?

The rules are so bureaucratic and I was so sick of dealing with them that I decided to just use a loophole to get this video posted. I agree that it's ridiculous. Bonzo's the fucking greatest drummer in the world and a damn true musician.

Edit: Thanks for the gold! Zeppelin rocks!!!

It's not a bunch of 40 year olds complaining, but acting like this is some massive deal or these guys are pioneers is a spit in the face to the real pioneers. These guys made EDM-Pop songs at a time it was blowing up in the States/worldwide and got famous. They didn't pioneer anything or build up and innovate from the roots. They aren't the Bellevile three in Detroit using their bleak and poor surroundings to inspire and create a brand new genre and make an entire scene out of it and take it worldwide. They aren't kraftwerk creating their own electronic instruments and introducing electronic sounds to the world. They aren't Fabio & Grooverider one night speeding up breakbeat tracks in a club to create jungle/dnb.

This is not major news that will be recorded in the history of electronic music.
