    Re: Should Music Define Culture

    Music should be defined by the culture that produces it, not the other way around. Like any other art form, music is meant to express the thoughts and feelings from the person who creates it, and obviously that person's culture will have an impact on what they create.

    On that note, no one should feel they have to listen to a certain style of music because of their ethnic/cultural background, and no one else should give them crap if they decided to listen to something else.

    I agree. One will incorporate his/her culture in thier music, but NO ONE should have to listen to a certain kind of music based on thier culture. If that were the case, no one in this country would be listening to J-pop. Y'see, I'm pretty ecclectic when it comes to music. I was raised as an artist/musician; so I listen to just about any kind of music there is... I'm not really choosy.

    Just because you're black, that doesn't mean you have to listen to rap/r&b as your primary source of music. Same thing with white people and Asians, and anyone else of any other culture. That would be racism burned on a disk (metaphorically speaking).

    In Japan, the same music we have here (the genres at least) is being played there. It's not a black or white thing there--compared to our country, where different types of music only get played by the majority of the race that it was "made for". Shit man, there are more white GIRLS who listen to more rap than most of the black MEN I know. LOL.

    So I say, to each thier own. You wanna stick to music made by your people, go right on ahead. But me--being the hybrid I am--I'll keep on listening to as many different types of music as humanly possible.

    Re: Should Music Define Culture

    I guess the music that I listen to would be considered "emo", but then again I listen to alot of older 70's 80's music aswell, does that mean I'm emo and old?

    Of course not!

    People can listen to whatever music they want regardless of there culture. Infact I have never come across anyone who thinks other wise.

    No music does not define your culture or anything like that. I also do not agree with music defining the color of your skin either. That is like saying oh your white because you listen to country or your hispanic because you like to listen to hispanic music. It's crazy to start with. and for the last part of your post I don't like those names because to me that's singling a certain race out. I consider them racial content and slur.

    Re: Should Music Define Culture

    "Music defines culture and culture defines music." Well, that saying is actually: "Architecture shapes culture, and culture shapes architecture." LOL. Anyways...

    No, music shouldn't really define culture. I mean, if you like a song (or music), say, "Welcome to the Black Parade", you shouldn't really think that just because you listen to that particular song, you're not some guy (or girl) who would like to head-bang, LOL. For example, you're an old man but you like to listen to Simple Plan; You're eighteen yrs. old and you listen to Frank Sinatra (wouldn't blame you) and Mozart. Everyone has different tastes of music, like everyone is different.
