>"GUITAR MUSIC IS DEAD! Rock is shit and guitars are for plebs!"
>Jenny Death turn out to be a rap rock album
HAHAHA HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW
I gotta admit it's pretty funny that Jenny Death can be accurately described as rap rock when that word probably mostly makes people think of awful shit like Limp Bizkit or Lil Wayne's attempts at rock music
I mean Jenny Death doesn't sound anything like those artists but rap rock is a fitting term
I feel sad because it was best utilized on On GP and that song is really sad in context with the album and there being no more MC Ride?
I loved the shit out of this album though. Going to listen at least 2 more times today
yeah i think it's a new thing altogether
>inb4 someone re-names the genre influences for the nth time
i realize that it didn't just appear out of nowhere. but lots of artists try to mash stuff together, and it's shit. DG are innovators.
I mean we already have in a way, it's just called experimental hip hop. Artists like DG, Clipping, and Face Candy have been gaining popularity and influencing a lot of other hip hop artists over the past several years
Nu-Metal was great, people only hate it because the traits displayed by white lead singers (angst, immaturity, edgyness) are only accepted if they come from black men (usually meme rappers)
I wouldn't consider this "rap-rock" at all. The guitars aren't really utilized in a regular rock fashion, or like anything that most people have heard before. If anything they're sort of used like the synths and the electronic stuff from all their other work. It's just a new sound that DG uses to change up their style once again. If anything it's like deconstructionist rock music
>deconstructionist rock music
No. Look up what that term means, listen to Royal Trux and then come back. Just because they use rock instruments in a non rock context doesn't make it deconstructionist. If that were the case Don Caborello and Godspeed would be deconstructionist.
