Yeah, what do you think? Music or electronic crap? I believe it's music but @TheCapsFan; disagrees.
I don't believe it is anybody's place to dictate what "music" is since, aside from technically agreed classifications for the sake of organisation, I don't think one can or should really be trying to quantify creative and subjective things in such a way. I don't like dubstep personally, but it is a series of sounds woven together in a deliberate manner and that does make it music to my mind.
Well it is technically music. It's purpose is to be aurally pleasing and significant. Whether you think it is danceable or fun or rubbish is up the listener. I don't like much dubstep and I hate brostep. But every genre has its gems.
Kaori: I'm not sponsoring your prostate, jon
Yes, it is music. It'd be like saying video game music isn't music.
Hell no. Dubstep is noise. Shitty noise, I might add. Shitty, loud, abrasive, electronic noise.
Regardless of personal taste, dubstep falls clearly into the definitions of music. There are a lot more radical types of experimental and progressive music that most modern listeners would call "noise" but still remains music - whether you like it or not. :P
I say yes. Though I'm the type of person who likes a beat and flow of a song rather than words.
Dubstep ain't music. It's just noise, as @Orion; states. My reason for that is that you can make anything into dubstep, my favorite example is a car accident. As terrible it may seem, it's just a justification for my point. Dubstep is just music.
I think that dubstep is indeed music, but not the kind of music we are used to.
A musical composition is usually conformed by two main characteristics: rhythm and melody. The genre dubstep focuses more in what is the rhythm, so most people don't find it appealing because of it's constant change of it. Now, I have to admit that sometimes the is not even rhythm, which is the main reason that people questions if it's music or not.
I honestly don't like it, and I wouldn't think about downloading a complete album; but I think that there are people for every taste.
