*ParadiseCityGirl* Posted August 4, 2007 Share Posted August 4, 2007 I was in the car with my sister yesterday and she was in control of the radio (booooo) so of course she's listening to her mainstream r&b/ hip hop shit and two songs in a row...were each renditions of older rock songs.First there's Sean Kingston (he sings that annoying Beautiful Girl song that's on the radio every 5 and a half seconds) and I wasn't really listening until the chorus..."oh oh oh oh oh ohhh, you don't have to go- oh...." and i'm like THATS ZEPPELIN wtf! I got kindof pissed off, not exactly sure why.Then the next song that came on was this crazy mix of Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama and Nelly's Country Grammar. I have to admit it sounded pretty cool.Anyway...does it bother you that mainstream rap artists take other music and re-do it?On one hand I think it can open up these narrow-minded teens to other great areas of music....but on the other hand I think it's just sad to hear such amazing music being dimmed down to such a meaningless state. And plus, whenever a song like that comes out on the radio, sure people listen to it and love it, but a matter of weeks later it's forgotten. Just like that Lil' Jon/ Eastside Boyz "Crazy Train" song....It was interesting but I strongly doubt that one paid any justice to Ozzy Osbourne.Sorry this post is so scatter-brained but I felt the need to vent Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
