1 BrewMaster's translation needs some work. Mass-market artists are not necessarily "better" than obscure artists; they're just more well known (and generally more marketable). There are only two meaningful differences between U2 and, say, Sonic Youth: One, the size of their respective labels, and the exposure they've gotten as a result; and two, U2 is very conventional and formulaic, and doesn't engage in any sort of experimentation, or indeed in anything that challenges the listener, whereas Sonic Youth has been pushing the creative envelope for the last 30 years. If you prefer artists who play it safe and don't color outside the lines, and who are as much products as they are musicians, big-box bands are for you. Some of us, however, are a bit more adventurous. It has nothing to do with being "cool", and everything to do with a disinclination to follow the herd (or the corporations egging on the herd). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 2:42 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I just listen to music labeled 'indie' because I like it, does it matter what the genre is? Why are there huge battles over things like that? Honestly, just listen to what you want to. -- Submitted By: (blurbdragon) on July 26, 2010, 4:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
