I want that back I don't want to hear screamo and emo and all that bull honky. I dont want to hear lyrics about gay sex (except prison sex by tool). And I esspecially don't want to see anymore fall out boy vampire videos in the morning. So stop downloading music illegally.
Genres do not define good music. Sure I don't like punk but that doesn't mean it's crap now does it? They do what they do so they can be creative
. The main concept of music is to show your emotions in a musical way. Everyone likes something different so don't say

Just turn it off or maybe listen to your CDs? And I must agree with you on the gay sex or any sex for that matter. It's ok if it's not so upfront like some songs are..
Anyway I still respect your opinion. Although it's not due to illegal downloads of music. What runs the world? Money. What do record companies want? Money. They are signing more bands so they sell more CDs so they get more money. Granted it is partially because of IDLs but not entirely. Music has been turned into a business. And BTW the music industry hasnt been spiraling downward since 2000, Try the mid 80's.
