youtube: where every 14 year-old kid has a masters degree in everything. (A rant on trolling)
This is a debate I've found on youtube, typical of pretty much all youtube debates. I've copy/pasted it directly from the video, and only edited out profanity.
"@DietDoktahPeppur Sorry but metal and blues are not music. When you say that "metal has its major roots" in classical music, what you mean is that it is simply a bunch of melodies and harmonic progressions stolen directly from classical and put on obnoxious instruments and voices of (at best) mediocre singers. Writing good music is not only about creating pretty melodies; it is about creating those melodies and developing them in a way that makes sense. Obviously you don't understand classical."
"@fjghtuekslieathi356 Ouch. Metal and blues may not be your cup of tea, and I'll admit I like classical better, but just because it's bad in your mighty opinion does not mean it is "not music". You have every right to like or dislike whatever music you wish, but then so does everyone else. If you can't see past someone's musical prefrences being different than yours to hear them out, I honestly feel sorry for you. You're missing out."
