Much Music aired an entire half hour of their old videos tonight. Needless to say, it was the best thing that channel has broadcast in over a decade.

I haven't had muchmusic in a couple of years, but from what i remember it became the most useless channel pretty much solely aimed at those under 20 years of age.

Has anything changed over the last 2 years? What do they show on muchmusic anymore?

b55bgc 04-21-2011 09:56 AM

Havent seen a music video on much music in years.
Dont even know if they still air rapcity. I am sure they do. But youtube has taken over

Chiggmo 04-21-2011 10:11 AM

Rapcity was cancelled a long time ago, but they just re-jigged it and brought it back. They also brought back The Wedge.

Funny you say that. I have MuchMusic and haven't watched it in years. I used to watch a lot, but when they started showing shitty movies and reality shows i tuned out fast. They're basically copying MTV in showing very limited amounts of actual music videos.

Yep. It's all the same company now, anyway. Same channel more or less.

The Beastie Boys are living legends. Whether you like thier music or not. You got to respect them for what they have accomplished.

Very few artists change with the times and constantly re-invent themselves. The boys have done this and have still remained relevant to todays music.

Outkast have also done this.

P.S. No Sleep til Brooklyn

I don't really know what this means. More so i don't even know what it matters. Is there some special 'sound' out there that determines what is relevant? or a subject matter that people are singing about?

Other than if the music is relevant to me as a listener, what does relevancy to anything else have to do with music or art? Musicians make music because that's their passion - well the real ones at least. That's what they do. You and i can give it a listen and determine if we like it, but how it fits in with regards to the rest of the 'industry' is totally meaningless. Well to me it is anyways.

Wow... Didnt realize so many people dont know what the word relevant means.
And if something is meaningful and still hold popularity to the masses in the music industry, then it means they are still relevant.
If you guys wanna continue to be trolls go ahead.

'trane 04-21-2011 01:12 PM

trolls? wow b55, all fancy did was give his opinion. if anyone in this conversation needs to stop trolling, it's you.

hahaha talk about totally missing my point.

If you didn't notice, I like the beastie boys. I was just saying that it doesn't matter if they're relevant to 'today's music'. As in they are good artists so how their music sounds (or sells - not that this matters) in comparison to Katy Perry or Rebecca Black or the black eyed peas totally doesn't matter.

whether or not something is relevant to the popularity standards set by current artists is literally the least important thing when it comes to good music in my opinion.

get it?

It was more directed at JeffB. I quoted the wrong person.

Sorry it was meant towards JeffB
I retract my statements towards you fancy.

And your right. If mainstream didnt except the beastie boys, it wouldnt take away my love for them either.

P.S. Whats everyones favorite Beastie Boys Album. Mine is Check Your Head.
