    Does that mean we should pay no attention to lyrics?

    I think commercial Hip Hop actually neglects lyrics. Talking about clubs and babes is boring, and puts it in the same bracket as pop.

    Lyrics are important, but should not be at the expense of a good tune.

    radiohead, for instance, combine poetical lyrics and music. Indeed the two complement each other, both revealing a meaning in each other, which makes listening to radiohead so rewarding.
    No... I was just saying what I think.

    And agree that sometimes it has some good bass lines.

    not sure if its been mentioned but iread to pages and i have to run...
    the whole why do so many people in some bands play guitars etc...
    cause they make there own music and don't rely on a machine to do it.

    and you mentioned that the topic was a question.... there is no question mark and its blatenetly a statement of your music tastes...

    but them...

    i'm just a simple metal head i like music with effort of writting the music.. writting the lyrics and the comilation of a band putting effort in.
    plus i prefer to listen to intraments being played and seeing them being played.

    just my preference

    hip hop is for some... just not me

    That's a shame. I feel if you listened to some quality Hip Hop you would think differently. Your opinion seems to be shaped by mainstream Hip Hop (Gangster Rap), which isn't a true representation of most Hip Hop.

    Twas open ended...."Speak on it"...I set a debate and asked people to talk about it

    I respect your opinion but lyrics are one of, if not the most important parts of it. You like poetry? Its poetry! And instruments are played..

    Definitely, you know the way Playaboy. Lyrics are what you listen to. A beat just compliments lyrics and brings them to life. Most Hip Hop artists have an amazing knowledge of the English Language, which makes it rewarding to listen to.

    No. You get *MAINSTREAM GANGSTER RAP* Have you heard of Krs One? A Tribe Called Quest? Eric. B & Rakim? The Sugar Hill Gang? De La Soul? I bet you haven't. You are shown comerical music on MTV, not true Hip Hop.

    Exactly. The "Hip Hop" you are shown on MTV is moulded to appeal to a wider audience, thus, make money. The reason you are not shown true Hip Hop is because it is for sincere fans, and appeals to a smaller audience.
