a 'radio fucker', more commonly refferred to as a 'radio warrior' is a person who only listens to popular, mainstream music and often criticizes quality music for not being popular. usually listens to akon, flo rida, fergie, black eyed peas, gwen stefani, lady gaga, etc.
Radio fucker: omg, did you hear that new song it's great
Me: yes, i did, and i was deeply annoyed and saddened that it can pass for music. i much prefer school of fish
Radio fucker: oh, yeah? well it's on the radio, let's see your precious school of fish top that, i mean no one's ever heard of them
me: well, school of fish had quality songwriting, intoxicating melody's, rich inspirastional lyrics and a great voice
Radio fucker: those things exist?
The music of the 21st century. Often music that has no passion or creativity and is made solely for money purposes. This music is mostly hip-hop or rap. Although there is no such thing as quality rap music anymore and is usually watered down shit. Justin Bieber is famous for stabbing good music in the back.
|10.||Mannes College of Music|
One of the three main conservatories in New York City, the other being the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music. Smaller than its counterparts and criminally underfunded, Mannes has earned a reputation for having demanding theory and ear training curricula. While the quality of its students vary from moderate to abhorrently terrible, the kids come out knowing slightly more than the average conservatory student given that the school actually teaches the student something outside their instrument. Notable students and graduates include Frederica von Stade, Murray Perahia, George Rochberg, Myung-Whun Chung, and Lara St John, among others.
Mannes is currently under the ownership of The New School, a pretentious, poorly administered university system based in lower Manhattan that always succeeds at making itself look better than it actually is. Fortunately, Mannes is one of the more independent schools currently owned by The New School, even if it still has to bear the mark of the university system's name in its "proper", verbose title: "Mannes College The New School for Music"
An aspiring pianist from Afghanistan
Became a devout Byron Janis fan
Wrote he, “Who can learn me
To master my Czerny?”
Replied pianist Janis, “The Mannes can.”
Violinist (applying for a job): "I hold a B.M. from the Mannes College of Music in violin performance."
Interviewer: "How do you feel this school has helped you as a performer?"
Violinist: "Well, I still sound like I did when I was a sophomore in high school, but at least now I can read in seven clefs!"
A person who is compared to the KKK by ignorant, MTV-watching wankers who think music is what the RIAA-affiliated corporations tell them it is. Who in the right mind believes that the shit produced by the big corporations is quality music?
I agree with Rock Fan. Today's pop, R&B, nu-rap, and nu-metal are all utterly inferior to even the music from 1994.
A person who listens to only the current popular music, regardless of its quality. Some are likely to criticize those who hold interest in any music outside of the mainstream.
Al-"Fuck man, no one listens to the shit you listen to."
Steve-"Shut up Al, you're such a music slut."
A genre of music performed, in reality, by extremely talented artists who gave up the secular industry and making possibly millions, to praise their Father. Some however, switch over from Christian to secular, sadly, or make crossover hits, like Switchfoot and Stacy Orrico. The assumptive sir above me doesn't know his music or he would know Switchfoot's vocals and strings have won various awards on both sides of the fence. As well as all of this proof of the quality of Christian music artists...it delivers a far better message than most secular trash. Sure the sound and talent is tight but that does not excuse the immorality of most lyrics on the secular beat.
Switchfoot rocks. POD rocks. Pappa San rocks (let's put shaggy to shame shall we?), Twelve stones (duet and tour w/ Evenescence) ROCKS. Kutless is just plain hot...Barlow girl is freakin awesome. Superchick is the Gwen Stefani of Christian music (great sense of style as well as great punk sound) AND currently indi band, Fixed Eternity is going to be a hit if they last.
|14.||Golden Age of Black Music|
The period of time, roughly between 1977 and 1988 when Black music was at it's prime is what is referred to the golden age of Black Music. Disco was going downhill and Black people wanted something new. Artists like Chic, Chaka Khan, Atlantic Starr, Prince, Cherrelle and Alexander O’Neal ruled the dance floor back in the day.more...
The soul music back then wasn't quite mainstream enough for MTV or the top 40 radio stations to play and if you didn't have BET or an Urban radio station in your town, you only got to hear about what was happening from friends, clubs or when the artists actually came to play in your town.
Early Rap music focused more on the music and beats and the rhymes then were somewhat light hearted, often about having a good time or boasting about the MC’s prowess and abilities with the mike. It was always about the mike.
Around 1989, “Gangsta rap” was born and artists like NWA and 2 Live Crew took off. Soul artists started to make their music sound more mainstream to appeal to a larger audience. Some artists, like Keith Sweat, Teddy Riley, and his group GUY, created what was known as the New Jack Swing sound to give people an alternative to the new rap scene, but by then, BET and now MTV started to feature more hardcore rap in heavy rotation. Even mainstream radio got in on the action and the new jack artists, while talented and promising, never enjoyed the full glory of the golden age era.
In the new millennium, Rap/Hip Hop became the domina...
