    It's ludicrous to think dubstep is anything other than music. If it's sound created with the intent of being, y'know, music, rather than just sound, then it's music. It doesn't matter if it's arrhythmic, it doesn't matter if it lacks melody; all that matters is that an individual or body of individuals created it and deliberately differentiated it from unrestrained ambiance. It's no less music than the Carmina Burana and no more than Metal Machine Music.

    Just because something goes against the artistic norms of a medium does not disqualify it from being part of that medium. "The Red Wheelbarrow" is still poetry, isn't it?

    This is possibly one of the most stupid topics I have seen in a long time.

    Whether or not it's good music, is a completely different matter. Besides, if you don't like it, don't listen to it? It doesn't have to be more difficult than that.

    Yes it's music. It's nonsensical to even try and dispute that. As far as theory goes (both musical-wise and production-wise), some dubstep is actually quite complex music.

    Too many people fall into the "I don't like it so it sucks" mindset. I wouldn't choose to listen to most dubstep, but that doesn't mean it's not good. Obviously you're gonna get some poor attempts, but you get that with every genre.

    Agree with this completely. I'm not exactly a huge dubstep fan, but I'm getting sick of debates about "is this music?" that really mean "is this good music?"

    Song is a specific form of musical composition, so a lot of good music are not "songs."

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    Of course it's music, whether you like it or not. It's a weird type of music, but still music.
