You know, lately all around the world nothing seems "hippier" than claiming we are fans of Limp Bitzkit.
seems cooler than wear a basketball hat, big sized trousers and screaming around over a so-called "music" which
to some ears though (like ours here) is nothing but a cacophonic patchwork of frustrating unmelodies.
It's all about
taste of course, and I can also agree that the artistic value not always has been expressed thru clear and elegant creations.
Punk was a scream too.. and so sometimes is the Industrial Rock (Nine Inch Nails, anyone?).
But the Nu-Metal
is nothing of these other things.
While punk was underlining a widely felt feeling of rebellism against a too much structured
society, while its screams were a self proclaim which was reading more or less "Okay; I can't sing nor play, but I have
things to say so let me speak" (and this is artistically understandeable) the Nu Metal screams like arrogant kids do
when they don't know how to take for them the right side, being in a discussions.
They scream as a substitute to
concepts and values.
They scream useless.
There's nothing not even of the majestic force and beauty of Nine Inch
Nails and their peers in Nu-Metal world..
There is no real anger, no real deepness, just a way to be fashion and become
millionaires selling to loads of corporated sheeps a blur of "attitude".
lately all that is not valuable got a overvalue: teen pop, fake idols as Robbie Williams or Ricky Martin, and no one cares
anymore at beauty and melody and heart in music.
Now that's a shame.. and when I hear "My Generation" I
always think to WHO, cos no other song lately was having a similar title.
No.. I know.. I know what you're ready
to say.. But I was speaking about a PROPER song :P
