    After reading the 'is trance cool' thread...

    I thought actually... you know.. dnb isnt really cool.. I mean its good.. i love it but its not actually cool...in the true sence of cool.

    As a scene its full of 19 year old kids doing pills or old moaning people (like me) who go on about how shit it all is now etc etc

    Most producers stay in the bedroom or studio on their own playijng with the computers.. yeah they are making music but they arent in a band rocking out being cool.. they are computer geeks really...

    You dont have to look cool.... infact a lot of the new producers dont look cool...

    Dnb parties these days are full of chavs.. dnb is possibly one of the most chavtastic genres of music around... there for its really not cool.. chavs arent cool.. they cant be cool.. they have no taste.. unless they are being a chav ironically...

    There arent many girls into it.. therefor the general sausage fest nature of the music mena its not cool.. its not sexy.

    its full of blokes discussing how great noisia are (geeks..lets be honest) and how Break makes those bass sounds..... they would rather be talking about that than chatting up girls, getting drunk or having fun.... which are cool thinsg to do

    ity used to be cool... all the cool kids at my school were into it. and at college if you were into dnb you were cool.. we were the cool kids who went out to get mash up and dance to late 90's cool techy dnb.. whcih was cool... other kids were into indy which wasnt cool back then.. but actually is now.. or metal which used to be cool but stopped as soon as nu metal arrived... Linkin Park really arent cool... they are uncool.. Metallica are cool though.. and iron maiden.. cos they werent seen as cool, but they were..until the lead singer outed as a Christain then made them uncool...

    so you see... dnb isnt cool..

    dubstep is cool though... i think dubstep is way cooler than dnb....cos it takes effort to get into and when you are into it you play it to your less cool mates who go 'huh? its all slow.. i dontb get it..its shit' and then you smile and think to yourself how cool you are and how they are clueless fools. the more weird the dubstep the better .. Loefah works well.. thats cool.

    Jesus, what is with calling everything cool?
    What IS cool??
    I have to agree tho, it does need more female listeners.
    But I dont consider any form or genre of music to be any "cooler" than another.
    Everyones taste is different

    lol i like it alot u put alot of thought into that lol dnb is cool your right about computer geeks tho, yet all types of music is made on a pc, house, trance, elctro, garage, dnb, dubstep?
    So there all computer geeks, wat u need to do is get yourself a bitch, then hibernate on ur pc, an make them get interested in wat ur doin, u know how many bitches love to have a dj/producer as a bf tis a turn on lol well i doubt it really lol but thats positive thinkin for ya!

    I got a bitch, i aint got shit to worry bout! Its only wen ur single and ur lockin urself in ur room makin tunes, thats wen theres a problem, but u find those producers are normally the best in the game, no distractions! Its tough tryin to focus on makin a tune gettin inspired by shit then ur mrs walks in askin to spend time wiv her, ruins ur chi lol but comprimise is the key!
    Personally i dont comprimise, lay the rules down at the begginin if they like u they wont get bothered they know where they stand! lol

    p.s dont get me wrong i only say bitches cause i dont know your names individually! ;)

    Dubstep is shit! Weve had the jungle days and its done its thing, it got us to where we are today but don't really think dubstep is much different apart from being slower!

    Well in MY mind dnb is 'cool' I guess...
    And I probably listen to it more than any other genre atm
    So if I meet any male with a taste for dnb, a switch goes on in my head
    But If I happen to meet a male who can mix...Panties want to fly! :lol:
    But Ive actually never met a guy like that

    On subject: Dnb also isnt cool by by a mainstream perspective.
    Im not even sure what is cool to the mainstream right now...Rap??

    dubstep only seems cooler because it's a newer form of music, once it's established as a common style people will be piss bored of it, and will be slagging it off saying it's dead.

    jazz and the blues are the coolest styles of music.

    You bring up a good point, that despite the value of the music it carries with it a lot of associations, and in its execution DnB is definitely not as enjoyable of an environment as a lot of more popular genres.

    Coolness is entirely subjective though, and imo if YOU yourself are cool enough (and assuming you aren't pushing the lame DnB) you could make a dead/dying/lame genre work for you.
