    American music is a reflection of music education and choices. If a kid learned to play guitar, piano, and drums...and was exposed to a lot of music...people wouldn't be dummed down to just Xeroxed music.

    When I was growing up, my peers had bands. Rock bands competing against funk bands. Crazy. But it was nice to see what the peeps had.

    Nowadays, everyone wants to frat stomp with some agile dancers, rap, bring a Roland drum machine, and a Shure mic to the gig. That is it.

    But anyway, that is what is making the music industry now beats and rhymes. Michael Phelps just jumped that wave and rode it in.

    I like some of the songs, for example 'roses' from Outkast is great.
    If that is th emusic that relaxes him before a competition, why not. We all have our own taste. Go Phelps!

    There is music that naturally appeals to you and then music that you play for functional reasons (to relax, to concentrate, to raise your adrenalin level, ...).

    I know I hate hard rock with a passion but when played loud at the gym it really helps with that last set / last rep.!

    Yup same here! The beats of hard rock helps with exercising a lot, but I never would listen too it at home. Only if the song sounds good for me.

    ^Of Montreal. They're indie and I like them. And believe me, that says a LOT, given my iffy feelings about indie. Of Montral kicks ass.
