    Music is sounds that form rhythm/melody/beat, etc. Therefore, dubstep is music, random as it may be.

    It's fact that Dubstep is indeed music

    Despite our hate for it, that'll never change
    Just like everyone else on this great forum, I dislike the concept of dubstep, I find it rather pointless, but then again, listeners of dubstep would find metal pointless, so it's a two way street...









    Metal is better

    crudstep, with rubbish generic lyrics or no vocals at all, with metal you get wonderful array of lyrics, I love the fantasy type lyrics, epically from symphonic metal.

    Most of it all dubstep music is computer generated with the use of software. I cannot see how this can be "Real" music compared to the instruments and vocals used in metal bands, rock bands etc.
    My brother listens to all that crap and we are forever debating over what is the best, though since metal has awesome lyrics and epic tunes i'm always winning the debate.
    Dubstep though I think would suck more without their computer generated music...

    my understanding is that dubstep is nothing but altered versions of existing songs, (my freinds commonly use the phrase "the dubstep version of that song") and that the music is altered with the use of software specifically designed for creating dubstep music, so it's not really music, it's more like a "computer-generated facsimile of music"

    You may not like it, that however does not change that it is, in fact, music.

    I don't know what is 'real music' but unfortunately dubstep is music. It may be simple or shitty, but still it's music. By the way i don't like it either...

    No, dubstep is more than just remixes. 'Popular' dubstep isn't real dubstep. When people usually say they like it, they mean Skrillex, Knife Party and all those types of artists who are making a dubstep-influenced genre.
    This is an example of real, British, original dubstep:


    This is Skrillex, an example of 'fake' dubstep. It's louder, faster and has more of those stylistic growl things. It's an American version of the British dubstep that started in the 90s:

    It's the same as saying 'the rock/metal/dance version of that song'
    There are metal versions of non-metal songs, so it still works the same way.

    I think dubstep is music there are plenty of critics who argue metal is not music because of dissonance tone speed and structure so since when have so many "metal heads" became snobbish elitist cunts about anything unfit of metal standards.
    I see this kind of shit all over the forum to tell you the truth I miss pre-internet era culture in the fact that people didn't just pick a side but they gave a fair assessment to any kind of music...
    A. Because we pick sides its that much more easy for the music industry we hate so much to make money because you catergorize MUSIC for marketability
    B.PULL YOUR BLOATED HEADS OUT YOUR ASS music is subjective emotional and experimental its easy to take a hitler stance when 90% of the music you listen to comes from one genre.:bah:

    I disagree.
    When used right, computers are certainly instruments in my opinion.
    Take this: (I know it's a sad reference with it being the soundtrack to a game, but the point remains valid)


    That song was made entirely on a computer, the guy who recorded it never touched an instrument.
    I'd say it's music, and therefore makes computers an instrument.

    This really isn't a debate if Dubstep is music. More of is it good music. Which in my opinion its good for partying, or on rare occasions but I don't listen to it all the time and I do agree it is not very original at times but of course it is a matter of opinion and one who enjoys Dubstep or doesn't has nothing to do with their sexual identity as declared by some posts above. I hardly see what this irrelevant dispute has anything to do with the Metal culture...
