Who are you guys to say its not music? Obviously you wouldn't think its music because you cant even understand the lyrics. I'm sure to the Koreans who actually UNDERSTAND the lyrics think its music

But I'm saying its probably music to Koreans. to Koreans that music you posted is probably undecipherable words to them. Same with Gangnam Style

Thank you, is this video funny? Yes.
Is it music? F*** no.


Actually it is music:

Music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence. Its common elements are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture.

Is it good music? Well that's all a matter of musical preference and taste and everyone will have a different answer.

This is music:


Metal, pop rock, dnb and dubstep? Do you honestly think that is the world's music?

Your tastes aren't versatile enough for you to judge k-pop music.

I've had phases for each genre you've posted, and I've also had many k-pop phases. I'm not judging the music you like, because I only trash the bad music WITHIN a genre (example: Led Zeppelin > AC/DC). I'm just assuming (cautiously) that you haven't listened to enough k-pop to determine what's good and what's not.

I would never say that dubstep or dnb or any music genre sucks. I think that's exactly what you're doing with k-pop right now.

I think a LOT of the appeal in this song is visual. I don't believe that this could stand alone as a musical hit. Until that changes, all I see this as is a summer fling fad, not a musical accomplishment.

If someone were to be introduced to the song freshly, without bias, having only heard it and not seen the music video, it would seem like pretty generic house/kpop.

Only the first minute or so is any good, to be honest.
By the first Oppan Gangnam Style, I am tuning out

Gangnam Style is the best fad thus far in 2012.

I'm alright about the original song, it's being overplayed nowadays and it's "Oppa (This) Style", "Oppa (That) Style" now

This one's pretty good though :lol:

*sigh*

Guys, it's a parody. It's actually poking fun at the superficiality of the people who live in Gangnam. All of you guys taking this song so seriously really need to get a grip.

Is it overhyped and overplayed? Sure, but that's no fault of the artist. Blame the hordes of mindless drones who latch onto the newest fads every summer. (see Soulja Boy)

It isn't meant to be taken seriously as a great work of music. Is it music? Sure, it is. You just have to take it for what it is, and not try to judge it by some high musical standard.

RIP LB RR PD

So I can't poke fun at it because it pokes fun at something else?
