I used to have problems at school when people would label me as a 'dirty grunger' for listening to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden etc.
Most of these people calling me this were what we call 'Chavs'.
Basically ignorant youths who would say, "I can't believe you listen to that rubbish music, listen to some real music like 'Garage' or 'Drum &
Bass' or I will beat you up"
I admit. I'm guilty of not being a fan of synth dance music. And these people are the ones who drove me to it. I have called it 'fake' and
'talentless' in the past (Which some of it is).
Then I started to get hooked on classical music. Boy, that made me really arrogant!
Insted of getting angry and offended, i'd just laugh at them and ask them what a mixolydian scale is.
Theres nothing at all wrong with using synthasisers. Look at video games, horror movies etc. Theres an art to harnessing these sounds.
I have nothing against techno. Unlike some people I listen to music before critisising it.
