In terms of influence, I know metal isn't "hip" or whatever, but;
- What about early Slayer, Mayhem, Venom, Celtic Frost, and Bathory? Many of these bands formed in the late 70's/early 80's and have helped pave the
way for Death Metal, Black Metal, Grind, Thrash etc;

IMHO, nothing truely original has been done in quite sometime.
And in terms of originality; have you heard bands like Agaloch, ...And Oceans, Axis of Perdition, Aborym? You probably think most metal sounds the
same, but it's the most evolving (and arguably, devolving) genres of music around today.
And what about Classical music? There are myriads of contemporary composers who are creating new soundscapes that the well-known mainstream composers
of the past never dreamt of! (And with that change so do the musicians, for example the violoist Yuri Bashmet and his work with Schnittke)
If you look at hip/trendy/MTV music it's never going to change, it's watered down dribble of genres that are defined and purposeful - that's easy
to swallow and quick to buy
