We All Agree Right?

Sure hope the music stays the same as we’ve had for the last 10 years. We need 10 more years of that music that is always the same sounding electric keyboards, drum machines, and auto tuned vocals. What music could be more original? Nothing should change. Music should never change! Sure hope there is no progressive music to challenge this teen pop by the handful of wonderful aging teen pop stars that the music media talks about over and over and over and over.

And above all else there must be no mention of the music revolution sweeping the country out of Dallas. We need the sameness that keeps radio so good on every channel, concert tickets so low and fun to purchase, streaming payments so high, awards shows that award the most promoted, and reviews that praise this safe bland music over and over. What we don’t need is music rebels that want to change any of this for the better!
There must be no one to question why the music sounds alike, why 1% of musicians make 70% of the money, why 3 CEOs that control 80% of the music are all men, with no women allowed, and why the musicians most love are marginalized out of careers. We must support the music industry that keeps 99% of musicians making minimum wage at best by selling a few CDs and t-shirts to half empty clubs.

Continue to support the very few at the expense of all the rest! We all agree right? … or do we?
