How did electronic dance music get so popular? As a classically trained musician, it's hard for me to understand why anyone would want to listen to such garbage. It's just the same chords over and over again.
Now, not all electronic music is bad. I do think electronic rock and electronica are great genres, but what I'm talking about is music where it's all computerized, so all an artist has to do is go on stage and press play on their computer. Electronic dance music is taking away the performance element from music, and that's a really sad thing to witness.
