    okay the title might be confusing, but i just saw this on youtube saw how many views it has and how much comments, and i listened and wondered why people are over it so much? can someone tell?

    heres the vid btw, its netskys remix of ruskos everyday (it's shit imo...)

    the drum & bass scene and even dubstep scene has been very fucked past few years

    what with all the shit stuff being really popular and the gems not even getting close to that kind of mainstream popularity

    you just gotta realise most people have passive music tastes and dont bother to look for the good shit

    sounds good to me, does everything an uplifiting high energy dance track should do, and does it very well, why do you guys think its shit? answers that revolve around your personal taste in music I aint interested in...

    ok... I find its shit mainly because that horrible organ synth at the drop does nothing for me, and the drums are weak.

    Not really a fan of Netsky. Few tracks I do like and this is one of them. Reckon on a big system it could sound quite beasty tbh.

    I prefer Original Sin's remix of this shit. But at the end of the day, this remix goes off really well on a big system, that bassline is killing it. Still not a big fan of this one.

    Vocals are good. The drop's okay...but oh my god are there alot of people who've fallen deeply in love with him. They look absolutely devoted.

    To be honest, i expect hearing this on a 'big system' would be pretty good, especially that second drop. It is stupidly cheesy though, and i hate those high pitch synths. The most anoying though is the people who reckon this is 'UGHH UTTER FILTH'.

    what is cooler than this track imo is the vid. It's a compilation made of videos from netsky gigs from the last 2 years or something like that, shot by Shutter photos (from belgium). The guy who edited this video is a mate of mine at college.

    Pretty sick that his editing work is getting viewed all over the world by so many people. :)

    Its nothing to do with liking cheese. The song is utter, utter toilet.

    IMO of course.

    How can i explain it

    If I decided to lick crap from my partners chest, that's ok!! Hey, its my choice to do so, each to their own, horses for mutha fuckin courses!
    However if i did decide to perform such an act, I would still know its not right!

    Do you understand? Licking poo is not right!!! even if you do enjoy doing so, you know its not a good thing.
    poo and tongue are not rhubarb and custard ok!

    I'm not comparing enjoying this track to enjoying licking up fecal matter, no!
    I'm saying if someone likes it, that doesn't make it good!
    it means they're wrong!

    To stoke the fire a lil, netsky played 90% his tracks in his hospitality brixton set. i don't know how someone can enjoy listening to his own tunes that much, he was clearly loving it. not impressed
