Pop music is dead

The state of pop music is at an all time low.

Radio one provides the most infuriating presenters ever and theeworst music in decades.

I know people who say 'discuss' are infuriating and it's really annoying, but discuss it anyway

style over substance too many nasal whingers and not many creative artists
looks marketing one tone etc
yes pop died slowly many years ago
banned#2
Just to add that ed sheeran tops the list in the crap stakes

The only songs iv quite liked in recent times are Kaiszer and lana del rey west coast, but even then she sings like she has a mouth full of spit. Lana sings like a female version of Sherrif jw pepper. I'm put off Kaiszer cos Greg James loves her and he is a monumental idiot

I don't mind bombay bicycle club either

I think there's some great music around atm. This one is cheesy, but I just love it :D I agree about Radio 1 presenters though, they really are an annoying bunch. I think the current number 1 is great too.

I saw a bit of it earlier, truly dreadful. Then again, I find most pop music is pretty crap live.

Nick Grimshaw is the worst by far imo

He is an obvious and harmless tool tho

Greg James believes himself to be something special

So does Fern Cotton. I used to really like her, but she's very arrogant now. I like Jameela jamil though, she seems lovely :)

Fern Cotton is appalling.

The way she pronounces every word and places great emphasis is infuriating. She claims to be 'obsessed' with everything and is generally awful and dull. The other day she wanted news reports from people at Glastonbury 'on the ground' Whats wrong with the weather forecast.

What is with the going home song at around 4pm as well. What sort of moron would ring in to sing that song. And the mayor of where.

The show is just so bad

I heard her going on about whether she needed wellies, and how important her outfit was. I just turned over to Capital. I tend to flick through just picking out the music I like and not listening to the idiots on the radio anymore. Thinking about it, that must be really annoying for my passengers :)

My (kind of) friend phoned in for the i'm going home song a few months ago. It was quite funny hearing him make a fool of himself singing "my name is gareth, and i'm going hoooooooome" X)

Pop died when "singers" started to use "enhancing microphones" and miming to tracks

Yes I'm old but I enjoy a wide range of music from classical to pop (excluding country/ heavy metal, rap and punk) so I remember real faux pas on live tv music shows - not the "edited crap we see on music shows

I have bad news for you Elton, you are getting old! Unless you are at the lower end of age 15-29 (Radio 1's key demographic) then pop music and their presenters have no relevance to you anymore.

Sad, but something we all have to come to terms with one day. I'm 29 and I don't like radio 1 anymore or the music they play but that's just what happens. Its what your parents would have thought of the music you listened to, and what their parents would have thought of their music taste.

Funnily enough Radio 1 appointed Grimshaw to remove older listners as Moyles has over a million listeners between 45 and 50 and a large chunk over 30, so its obviously working.

Radio one has to be the worst radio station in the UK. I gave up listening to it years ago and it was made easier by that idiot Chris Moyle's who proclaimed himself radio ones saviour. His taste in music like the rest of the presenters on radio one is repugnant and caters for a minority. In the day when Steve Wright was a radio 1 presenter was when radio 1 was a great station to listen too.

I do not have radio 1 even programmed in my presets as its just such a god awful station. I don't know who thinks radio 1 is doing well but they need to have a radical rethink.

Stations like Heart, Beacon, Radio Clyde, and dare I say Radio two are miles better.

I personally listen to the 80's stations on Dab

Elton, did you do your eating challenge?

No i didn't do it in the end.

There was a few of us going to do it and few things happened, a couple of people lost their job and one person got pregnant meaning it just didn't happen
