First of all the industry is base on class, not color. That is why it take a commercial approach to get any and every audience available. So it does not matter if you see white kids acting back, or black bands playing hard rock. The music industry is like a dope pusher, whatever your fettish the will try to fill the bill. So you will see more sellout artist performing theactric instead of pure singers & musianship with todays music. Not to say there are not out there, but it's not enough!!!  | submitted by DA DA Sat Dec 28 09:25:40 PST 2002

I am so sick of seeing these popstar bands being created,while other bands struggle day in day out trying to get signed....more attention should be aimed towards nu-metal bands,punk bands, and some good alternative like Stone Sour,Goldfinger,and Chevelle  | submitted by Disco Darren Wed Oct 23 23:18:40 EDT 2002

The effects caused by music videos (as well as other media) are overwhelming. It is incredible to see how what is depicted in videos plays itself out in the real world. Just go to your local public school and you'll see what I'm talking about. Exploitation right and left, we are deeply embedded in the realm of contradictions, the bourgeoisie vs. the proletariat has manifested itself in new ways. What is it all about?..............Making a buck, or a billion at that. Everyone is out to make money, money, money, and they'll do whatever it takes to find new ways of making $$$$$. What else can we expect from the continual division of labor in our "advanced" society? Hijole!!!!  | submitted by Gabriel Tue Nov 27 11:06:33 PST 2001

Why is it that middle class white kids are trying to look and act black while their parents are trying to be as "white" as Martha Stewart?  | submitted by phil
