Then the Intel fanboys will be interested! :D
Close enough, there's Nintendocore (actually it's a joke genre name but people still call it nintendocore anyway).
The 60s and 70s. I imagine that's partly because of my younger days and my personal belief that beyond a few songs here and there (such as 'here without you' 3doors down), today's music is hollow or downright obnoxious (most rap).
Hell, they've even managed to ruin country -
If you don't mind, here are a few bands that are very actual and that I consider are worth listening to. They are Quebec (east of Canada) bands.
Karkwa - Le Compteur (alternative rock)
Malajube - Labyrinthes (album, alternative rock)
Polémil Bazar - Avale Ta Montre (album, alternative / ska / bohemian / big band / jazzy-sounding rock)
Oh noes, not the 70s or 80s. Thats like apes banging on drums, not that banging on drums is a bad thing. I do it. But seriously, you want a kick ass synth; thats what computers is about. and the nintendocore thing is funny. me likes :)
Ever since the 90's til now, the bands(particularly boy/girl bands, rap) rely on synth and techno to do all the bulk of the work. All they do is sing and dance.
Even lack vocal ability isn't much of a problem, because technology can remove any bad elements, and add to the voice.
Let's hear them unplugged, and see what they're really worth! ;)
EDIT: And in the case of Nintendocore(and Gorillaz etc), you don't even see any real people, just animation.
So the human element is missing.
