    Music based around harsh vocals isn't often about melody, it's about the aggressiveness and grittiness of the music. That kind of music is an element of the human psyche that often goes untouched in other kinds of music.

    It's guttural, visceral, and feels very raw and organic compared to processed melodic vocals. And sometimes people just want to listen to something like that. You just feel that viscerally in your gut.

    I don't like most pop music. But I also don't sit around saying "I can't believe people listen to this!" Because I understand that some people don't relate or listen music the way I do. I have my opinions on modern music composition and songwriting, but at the end of the day if people enjoy music it's not my business to tell them they can't.

    ANYWHO...unpopular opinion.

    Coldplay isn't as monumental or as much of a holy grail as people make them out to be. Never have been. I enjoy Coldplay a lot but the way some people treat them as some sacred musical icon baffles me. They write very enjoyable music but their musical abilities and compositional skills aren't that much above average.

    On the flip side, I feel like the vast majority of the internet makes fun of Coldplay rather than praises them. Not nearly as harsh and often as Nickleback, but still up there.

    In reality, Coldplay really exists somewhere between these two trains of thought

    Rock, Rap, and RnB all peaked in the 2000s decade.

    If you mean “peaked in commercialization” - then yes.

    Had another thought about concerts, and I'm gonna be honest, I don't have any interest attending another concert from bleacher/stadium seats. If I'm not up close to the stage and down in the pit, then I'm really not interested.
    Of course, this is all dependent on when concerts ever will resume.

    Nobody's Listening' is a more hip-hop style track. Beats and samples are the backbones of the song. It's a top 3 for me.

    I hate passive aggressive behavior towards other people just because of different music opinions.
