Music that may die out26th Oct 2007, 06:52 #1
I think that someday, obviously, any form of music now will be replaced.
But, music that I think is not going to stand the test of time as long would probably be this:
Rap or hip hop, unless it was REALLY defining and worthy
Thrash, head banging (like really hard) rock
****ty electronica rip offs that are just like beeps and 'think' it's dance-able
Stuff that will stay:
Good rock/Jazz rock/Industrial rock/progressive rock like Nine inch Nails or Mars Volta
Classics, like The Beatles
Jazz - like Miles Davis or Louis Armstrong
Trance to a certain extent - people like Tiesto who are good at it
Any others and your thoughts?

groups that create genres,rather than following a trend and jumping on the band wagon,not resting on their laurels and being original will always stand the test of time.(i pretty much described daft punk there).for instance,nirvana more or less created the grunge movement,even i who can remember that far back cant name any bands who were involved in that or are still around today.

Massive attack defined trip hop with "Blue Lines" in 1992... best album of that year

Tiesto is a good trance artist. There are a SOME trance artists that suck and try to copy him

i don't think there's any way we can predict that... popular culture is mostly what determines that, and it's pretty fickle. lol
i don't think any genre of music will totally "die out," though. after all, we still have classical music and even older musical traditions (in example of Japan, things like koto, taiko, shamisen, etc.) and way back to things like tribal drumming.

Music genres never "die out", they just become obscure and (sometimes) obsolete where the mainstream act as if it never or does not exist at all. 80's music is an example, nobody makes those kinda tunes anymore, but that doesn't mean it aint good or it suddenly went extinct, I still love it and prefer it over any new stuff these days.
And what piro said about the tribal drumming and traditional dances.. etc, it may not be popular in the mainstream, but some people in my country still find only Tribal Drumming/Khaleeji Music to be the most enjoyable to listen to, and can't stand listening to anything else. I mean, to this day, no wedding is safe from that kinda music, if you know what I mean. (By the way, I only listen to Western music, and dislike Arabic/Greek). XD
It's tradition, after all.
