    Mainstream music is good, actually.

    I mean, the composers are fairly competent at their jobs, Max Martin and co had more than 50 songs to chart at billboard for the last 20 years.

    Problem is, the most musically inclined people get sick of it. Every song hit just sounds the same. Because the music industry cares more about selling a product, mainstream serving composers just follow formulas targeting at rebel teenagers or socialites, there simply isn't any identity at all to mainstream music.

    The music targeted at "rebel teenagers" is the least mainstream pop there is, and it also has the most diversity. Linkin Park isn't/wasn't a dishonest job, and neither are Green Day, Sum 41, or Blink 182. There's actual artists behind those names.

    Yeah. I suppose during the first decade of this millennium, the label "rebel teenager" was still something related to what Nirvana had accomplished a few years early. Linkin Park and the likes really put their names into history during the 00's.

    I'm very aware of the minds behind each group, and I believe firmly their work was sincere back then, but the tag "rebel teenager" haven't been the same in the last couple of years like it was when Fear The Clown, Foo Fighters, Thousand Foot Krutch, etc dominated all radio channels.

    It has been rather... generic, which is why I'm including it in the same group as pop music.

    Tomman, I would love to hear your opinion on the music in the Mortal Kombat 11 trailer...
