That's exactly what I thought. I was all 'why is Feldman doing a Grammy acceptance spoof'

Record producer: "Hey, I love your look! Listen, I'll pay you 10 million dollars a year to sing these songs. They're written by one of the best songwriters in the world, and we've hired one of the best producers in the world to lay the background track. You'll get fame, money, and women. Sound like a deal?"

Krallum: "Nah, I don't want to compromise my artistic credibility."

"i mean what the heck people, have you not been to Vegas??? pretty much the best clubs feature EDM and yes some of that includes stuff like dubstep. it's not all crap.

you can easily replace Skrillex with any other big name like David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Deadmau5, Avicii, Nero, Calvin Harris... doesn't matter, they're all big names and EDM is a huge genre and only getting bigger. ya'll sound like people complaining about Elvis and rock-n-roll era. face it, you're old."


Who gives a shit about Vegas clubs?

I don't dislike electronic music, I'm just not a fan of the whole DJ worship scene. Skrillex is not making music that's better or worse than thousands of amateur dubstep producers.

I agree. I saw Mimosa at Moogfest last year, and he spent half his set prancing around the stage while his music played in the background.

^^Who gives a shit about your opinion?

My point most of you are in the minority, you can't just say Deadmau5 or Tiesto is shit when they have a residency in Vegas at the newest most exclusive clubs. Fine, you don't like them. Just go on listening to your style of music and stop bashing on other people that may not fit perfectly within the constraints of what you consider "dubstep" Pretty much the entire electronic music movement is about making genre-breaking music. I'm sick of all this crap being spewed around when nobody deserves it. And WHO CARES if it becomes mainstream... seriously. Just stop complaining and just listen to what you want to listen to.

Yes, Skrillex has become the poster child of EDM even though he doesn't encompass the entire genre, and yes, there are other DJ's out there that may be better in your or my opinion. The point is to take someone that is probably the most popular, and give him an award so there's some sort of recognition for the EDM. Doesn't really matter who it is... but as most Grammy's are like that right??? I mean it's just a popularity contest.

The minority of what?

The majority of people have no idea what dubstep is, much less that they would laugh at it as a genre of music if they did.

Quote :
"Skrillex, a Gothic icon and Lesbian fashionista whose name is Latin for “Homosexual Satan Wasp”, is the biggest act in Dubstep today — a music genre founded on consuming massive amounts of drugs and having raucous pre-marital sex with numerous partners — and his winnings at the 2012 Grammys prove that his satanic presence will be felt for years to come. As long as Skrillex wins Grammys and is accepted by mainstream media, he will claim souls for Satan and molest our children through his perverse philosophy of futuristic devil machine music.

Skrillex is the inventor of “dubstep” whose sole purpose is to provide a “drop” — common youth terminology for procuring and snorting drugs. In addition, the rhythm patterns he employs in his “music” are known to cause seizures to certain people, which provides ample opportunity for other concert-goers to rape said afflicted person(s).

Skrillex, a known emosexual, was born Sonny Moore. He rose to fame with the satanic Rock ‘n roll band “From First To Last” (a band name that celebrates falling from God’s grace) and soon parlayed that success into something much more blasphemous; something that incorporates elements of Warhol-era rampant homosexuality and perversion, electronic “music” and lesbian-influenced haircuts. It is rumored that 1 in 3 women are raped at a Skrillex concert and forced to abort their children soon after.

Over 100% of homosexual gays listen to, or have listened to Skrillex in their life — mostly while participating in door-to-door recruitment for sex orgies or attempting to molest children in one of the patented “Rape Vans” used by the gay homo community.

In addition, Skrillex has launched a grotesque fashion trend, where upon weak-minded woman destroy their hallowed vessels of child birthing by SHAVING the side of their head — the same thing responsible for the downfall of Samson is being ENCOURAGED by this gnome-ish pervert. Skrillex will stop at nothing to get every teen in America hooked on dubstep and “ecstasy” (a potent street drug responsible for terrorism).

As a proud parent of four, healthy, able-bodied children, I urge all fellow parents to think thrice before allowing their own children to attend a dubstep show. These shows are full of unemployed “Occupiers” who seek to rape and maim your children and family life. Skrillex fans are MORE likely to rob a gas station and set a retirement home on fire than 1000% of Christians.

Please join with me in boycotting dubstep and this evil, satanic harbinger of deceit."

The minority of people that think Skrillex's music is crap. (of people into dubstep)

For the record I prefer calling all electronic music as such, and don't bother explaining the nuances unless people further inquire as it's not a big deal and not at all important to anyone to distinguish the differences. Chances are, most people at least know what electronic music is.

except bud light doesn't win any awards. lol. nice try.

best case scenario is it wins in the light lager category when competing against miller lite or coors light. but that is 1 out of 140 categories of beer.

most awards have some sort of standards to compare to. movies & music are pretty subjective. that's why everyone should just listen to what they want to listen to and not get offended if their favorite dubstep artist doesn't win a grammy.

Both these comments conveyed the opinion i have on this thread, but i couldn't quite think of the words. It's pretty ridiculous how many people on this site have a holier-than-thou attitude when it comes to music.

the game is evolving for sure. i said the same thing when motherfuckers started using CDs instead of vinyl. now motherfuckers are using iPods and laptops.

it's different though. i was decent on wax, but I know I couldn't do what these guys are doing today with the technology.

just different strokes, it doesn't make any less of a talent

The Grammys are like the Nobel Peace Prize at this point. A guy can get a Nobel Peace Prize for not doing anything, then spend the next 3 years mutilating innocent children and starting military conflicts.

Who deserves a Grammy? Who deserves a Nobel Peace Prize? These are labels that don't matter that much. As someone mentioned, it's a popularity contest. Many of the best artists are shunned by the masses and will remain obscure until, perhaps, many years from now, or maybe forever. Mass appeal is the name of the game.

Never heard of this guy until today, when I was playing Draw Something with a random person. His word was Skrillex, but instead he attempted to draw a crude picture of a stick figure with a massive penis pointing at "your wife". I used a anagram solver to figure out the answer, then responded with a massive middle finger played to the word Wave.

Now I'm listening to this Skrillex fellow on the YouTubes and it's not bad stuff. I have never knowingly listened to dubstep, so if this is what it is, it's ok by me.

I am of the biggest EDM fans out there and I think Skrillex is terrible

It's not because he's become hip and mainstream- I actually think it's a GOOD thing that more people are listening to EDM

It's because his music fucking sucks and hurts my ears to listen to it

There's plenty of decent dubstep out there that's not so noisy and obnoxious
