Teen Cashcows





This is really getting out of hand. Not only is the general public being force fed this horrible music with horrible lyrics. It seems like now a days huge companys are investing large amounts of money into these teens that make horrible music knowing that children growing up in recent times will eat it up.

When companies realized how much money can be made of cookie cutter teen idols like Justin Bieber, the market is being flooded with these teen "musicians" (and I say that loosely) with kids like Cody Simpson and now the internet sensation Rebecca Black knowing that kids will buy into anything.

When I was 12 I was listening to music that had a cause.. music that was real... not music that is a carbon copy of the last teen pop star.

  1. Meh, every generation has good music and crap music. Yea music seems to suck nowadays, but it's no different wading through crap to find decent things. Best thing to do is try to ignore I guess :P. Following btw.

  2. The biggest thing is everyone has their own taste in music so to berate or look down upon someone just because they are more into "pop" doesn't make it wrong. Just saying. Following.

  5. Corporations flooding the market with mediocre talent isn't new. Nor even exclusive to the pop genre.

    Notice how there are a lot more rappers now that we have autotune?

  6. you're damn right! these lyrics make no sense as song lyrics, just look at the lyrics of old good rock songs...

  7. Peoples' attention span and standards seem to be getting lower and lower. The music industry and even the movie industry is only taking advantage of that.
