    Hahaha you are a funny dude!!! Your post had me crackin up!!
    My ex was a hardcore country..... Went to my first rodeo with her( rodeos are pretty badass) and had to listen to country all the time, what a lame, depressing genre. It seemed like all he songs were either the chicks bf cheating or someone getting raped
    Hey now, don't forget about pickup trucks! The only country artist I like is Toby Keith, the guy is hilarious. Red Solo Cup - who the hell makes a whole song devoted to that, haha.

      Electronica was mainstream in the past and fizzled out like a bad fart but thanks to djs like skrillex, tiesto, David guetta...


      Tiesto did remix to pirates theme before daft punks from legacy...

      Around the world is an older track by daft punk which they remixed...Kanye west also sampled from daft punks older works..

      Skrillex made an appearance in wreck it Ralph and also did music for the movie

      Also EDC which has been HUGE like we're talking LEGEN wait for it... Dary proportions for the past 5 years if not more

      Check out resident djs at the largest clubs in the world... Or Vegas they are all electronica and dance dj's

      Electronica and dance are arguably the top genre out there now.. Hip hop is lucky to make it to the spot light without any of their tracks not having sampled electronica or dance music...

        Airmid, I'm with you. I remember the day my world view changed. I was talking to a pianist who had in his CD binder, Gould's Goldberg Variations next to Britney Spears. If someone who actually studied music can like Britney, I realized I was probably being a pretentious fool by dismissing all pop music. Now I try to listen to a little bit of everything. If you listen to enough stuff, you can usually find something enjoyable in every genre.

        That being said, I'm not a huge fan of the current state of pop music. Reminds me of pop before Nirvana exploded and turned things on its head. Though pop music now is probably a bit better than pop was then.

          Dubstep got ruined when people like skrillex, deadmau5, and Nero hit the radio. It was a badass genre when it had the reggae feel, but now I can just turn my garbage disposal on and have a platinum hit. Deadmau5 live is a joke, what a tool. In Miami ultra 2012 he built up a drop for what seemed like 4-5 minutes, right at the peak this fool made it seem like his computer crashed and he just walked off!!! Oh man he got booed hardcore.
          this may be nitpicky, but deadmau5 isn't dubsteb. he acknowledges that he made one dubstep track, but that is an aberration. i'm not sure what to make of him. he usually comes off as a prick, but at least he's honest. many would argue that he and daft punk have the same recipe for success. it's all about branding. deadmau5's mouse head and daft punk's pyramid (in the tour that really caused them to blow up). their music is fine, but not so much better than a lot of other artists.

          totally agree on pre-skrillex dubstep though. a couple of my fav tracks below. almost unrecognizable to current dubstep. though even back in the day, some would have classified burial as non-dubstep.

            i guess it depends on how to classify certain artists.

            i consider fatboy slim to be electronic. he was huge circa 1998.

            moby is almost certainly electronic. in 1999, he released play, which is still one of my favorite albums of all time. i like almost every track on that album.

            if i remember correctly, madonna's ray of light (1998) did pretty well on the charts. it had a heavy electronic influence.

            also around that time, the prodigy, chemical brothers, massive attack, and a few others got pretty big. maybe not as big as these guys today. also, i think they were bigger in europe than in the US. europe has always been more accepting of electronic music

              they are such huge genres, so there is a lot to choose from. but with respect to currently popular mainstream electronic music, i like

              avicii - levels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ovdm2yX4MA

              david guetta - titanium http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRfuAukYTKg (great acoustic version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGoCtJzPHkU)

              swedish house mafia - don't you worry child http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y6smkh6c-0

              i know some of you are going to hate, but i purposefully picked mainstream electronic music. i know there is a lot of more challenging/technical/interesting electronic music out there

My top 5 hip-hop stations are Immortal Technique, NaS, Dre, 2Pac and Gang starr. (I also downvote anything Jay-z. I just dont like his work)
                i totally feel you on jay-z. never really got into his stuff. i like kanye better. yeah, i know. i'm going to get a lot of crap for kanye, but his recent album is interesting. if you don't think so, read lou reed's review. http://thetalkhouse.com/reviews/view/lou-reed

                i'm going to show my age, but one of my fav hip-hop tracks of all time:

                the message (grandmaster flash and the furious five) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYMkEMCHtJ4

                also, as someone i know likes to remind me, we are coming on the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest days in hip-hop. on November 9, 1993, wu-tang released 36 chambers and tribe released midnight marauders. though i personally prefer low-end theory to midnight marauders

                      man, i literally just heard that song in my co-workers truck on the way to work. it's sad because that song sux compared to a lot of the other ones on that album.

                          Just some little facts; Daft punk have been around for decades, 'harder, better, faster, stronger' was super popular in the early 2000s. Now I don't want to sound like some EDM elitist but electronic music has been popular (/mainstream) for decades as well, nothing new. I have noticed though the big push for EDM in our media/entertainment which is why some people would probably think it is only now just going mainstream.

                          I thought this ad was pretty crazy that Mercedes blatantly took Access Denied's track and did not pay any loyalties because they made minor changes.
