Is rock music dead? How do we bring it back to life?
I looked up some of the lyrics to this stuff, and those guys are singing about specific streets in specific towns in northern Mexico and are calling out specific individuals in local cartels. It seems super-parochial.
Well I guess Mexican-Americans still listen to guys like Chalino Sanchez, but this really doesn't seem like music with a broad-based appeal if you aren't already familiar with the underlying culture.
No. those are cult like things, you have to be at least informed of the feats and identities of the character of the lyrics. Having said that some of the country/ narcocorridos music appeals to the blue collar workers and its a reflection of the current society.
instrumentation or lyrics?
Weed = Bob Marley/Sublime/DSOTM/etc.
Heroin - TVU, Swans
Crack - Viper
Lean - Lil Ugly Mane, Yung Lean
Speed - Death Grips
Meth - Xiu Xiu
Tobacco - Tobacco, Mac Demarco
Vaping - ???
As if there aren't enough threads about this, can we just agree it's fun to listen to even with the shit tier lyrics? Isn't it pretty damn decent musically fir what it is?

Writing an essay on Vaporwave and the capitalist symbolism behind it for Music Appreciation class.
Apparently you guys are where it all began. Can you redpill me on the beginnings of the genre and how /mu/'s related to it?
I know all about the music and the satirical/cyberpunk elements of the genre and the relation of Japanese consumerism/90s home computing technology world of tomorrow, but the history is where I need some extra info.
If /mu/ is interested I'll post a link to the essay when done.

It got attention online and around here somewhat and on Last.fm it was initially thought of as a joke until there were some quality releases and it began picking up attention from music review sites such as Tiny Mix Tapes, Marcel's Music Journal, Wire, and Dummy Magazine. it received critical acclaim from these sites and many others and it's considered now to be the forefront of modern electronic music.
does /mu/ like The Byrds?
what's their best album?
Greatest Hits volume one and two. Has all the stuff you love, and does away with the filler and songs you'd skip anyway. Oh, who the fuck cares? The Byrds are great, and you should just buy everything they ever put out!
Have you ever showed Death Grips or any /mu/core stuff to your family? What'd they think?
>show dad Death Grips - Exmilitary
>says it reminds him of slave chant music (as a "joke")
>dad's a republican asshole piece of shit, want to teach him how to swim at this point
>then says he likes the aggressiveness and raw energy of the band
>says he'll check out their other albums

Hey /mu/, I'm looking for stuff reminiscent of Ryuichi Sakamoto's work. Something along the lines of Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence would be great. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you!
