A style of electronic music that is based around drops and wobble-bass. Unfortunately, since this is the case, it all sounds pretty much exactly the same. It's all about break downs, and since that is typically only one part of the song, the rest of dubstep music that isn't wobble-bass and drops sounds like your typical synth beats from pop music, often featuring a female vocalist fed through auto-tune. A lot of people can't listen to dubstep for longer than two minutes at a time because their longer attention span prevents such a collage of wrecking beats and soft synths from mixing in such rapid succession.
1 - Hey, is that Skrillex?

2 - No. Skrillex isn't even dubstep, retard.

1 - Oh, I couldn't tell because I listen to music that has soul.

One of the worst genres of music known to man. Unoriginal, bland, and easy to write, dubstep mainly consists of a boring house melody and a "bass drop", which is basically a random bass line that has nothing to do with the other parts of the song, proving even further that dubstep "artists" have no real musical ability. Basically, dubstep is electronic music's version of metalcore, an equally unoriginal and talentless subgenre of metal music. Dubstep is mainly enjoyed by college "bros" and scene kids. Comments on dubstep YouTube videos generally involve a listener having to take a certain course of action to clean themselves after listening to a "dirty" bass drop. These comments, like the music itself, are unoriginal and useless. Overall, dubstep is a musical fad that will be completely over in a few years tops.
