Crappy pop songs have always been popular, that never changes. From The Beetles to Donny Osmond to New Kids on the Block and Menudo to Justine Bieber and Jepson crappy pop music sells because there is a built in audience. 12-15 year olds are very susceptible to cliches and hackneyed loves songs it is a stage in development. Where there is a market a product will emerge and as long as that market remains the product will as well.

The hell you say.

Okay, maybe not the first through fourth generation Menudo. And perhaps sixth through eleventh generation Menudo didn't have much going for them.

But dammit, there was that one mexican kid in the fifth generation Menudo that could really kill it live! How dare you talk shit! Weeping

RE: What killed Rock-n-Roll?
It depends on how you define Rock being dead.

Rock isn't dead in the sense that people still like to play it and hear it, but it's dead as dirt as a creative thing or a social movement. Everything has been done - you can't artistically expand the medium any more with out repeating shit over and over. The rebellion/teenage thing is important, too. Rock music was the music of the baby boomer generation, (and it was at it's best then) if you're a Generation Y person or even a late Gen X-er, the boomers are your parents, you don't like the shit your parents like, so you turn from rock and get into Hip-Hop, extreme Metal, or Industrial. Then most people grow out of that rebellion mindset in their early 20's, and the kids 10 years younger then you start it over again!!

The whole thing is basically a scam.Smartass

Give me one example of music that doesn't adhere to the same formula you just described and then tell me that music somewhere, somehow by your definition isn't dead and a scam.
