    Nowadays RnB is considerd to mean rhythm and bass , rather than the early Bluesey ray charles experiance.

    I completely agree.

    As long as the song is accompanied by a beat designed by a metronome, and has lyrics that include buzz words such as Love and want, these people will be there, gyrating in a nauseating fashion.

    The sad part is, these people believe that these songs actually have some emotion. They couldn't be so far from the truth.

    It's brainwashing on a very large scale!!

    if you're referring to the illuminati then the reason for all of the symbols being moist abundant in r&b music is because it is considered to be a form of popular culture, that is the culture of the masses. this is apparently their way of appealing to the masses.

    I am indeed referring to the illuminati. Couldn't really come out and say it for fear of being ridiculed.

    One of the many forms of brainwashing!

    On a lighter note - "When you set out to appeal to the masses, you have to go back & enroll in some classes" - Guru!

    Its a shame the Rhythm & Blues of early Who and Stones when it actually meant something,as well as being good music,has turned into nothing more than urban emo's crying about their childhood sweethearts....

    Please don't confuse the 'RnB' which dominates today's charts as real RnB.
    This is real

    Notice that it's not about crying over a girl either.

    There is good R&B out there, it's just not as popular and won't make it in to the pop charts.
    Most of the famous people who do "R&B" (aka pop imo) just sing the typical boring songs to make money.

    is that chipmunks music classed as RnB? cos hes a talentless **** to. gets girls to sing the main (nearly all?) of his songs as hes a mumbling tit
    I wouldn't class Chipmunk as RnB. He used to do Grime but he intentionally broke away from it to become a pop artist.

    He was alright as a grime artist as well. I remember seeing a Wiley freestyle on Westwood where he brought Chipmunk and some other kid on, they were good. Dunno what he's up to now though.

    A happy medium would be nice.

    I guess you're referring to skreamo music?

    There are more than two types of music in the world.....
