Here is the issue we as plug.dj users face. Plug.dj is a worldwide site, whereas Turntable was for the most part was American dominated. With the loss of turntable there was a mass migration over to plug, and with that a broader spectrum of genres that was rarely played on turntable. So as it seems that there are more "weird" songs being played, the truth of the matter is that we are now listening to music that more represents the music world as a whole. Do I personally mute, of course, do I meh, rarely. As for the person that was on deck at the time, she plays amazing music, but as an individual, she will play a song that she, and many others in the room, likes. I know for a FACT that I have played songs that leave the room shaking their heads and asking questions of what was that idiot thinking (Shatner). I have played songs that in my personal opinion are some of the finest works ever made, yet even they get meh'ed. As for the younger users that come into HoRM, they play music considerably harder and more aggressive than many of the mature users. It is what their generation is listening to. Personally, I like to understand the lyrics of a song, and not just listen to a bunch of primal grunts and screams. That is why the programmers put in the mute button. Also, just because Norma Jean Rottoncrotch doesn't want to watch her children, and uses the internet as a babysitter, I personally refuse to be their sitter. As for language, YouTube has an issue in my opinion, and it's called VEVO. Many of the record companies have gone to allow Vevo to use the music of their artists, but they also do the Wal-Mart bait and switch. You get an album, and it's cut up more than beef at the butcher. Yes, there are some foul language, but in many of the songs it is an important part of the song where the artist is showing the pain, regret, and even revenge of abuse that they have endured. A perfect example is the rant in the song The Sickness by Disturbed. During the rant he lets loose of his feelings of the abuse that he has had to endure. I personally am against the use of editing lyrics just so they could be safe for little ears to hear. An edited song is like a penis after having a vasectomy, sure it still works, but it's not as potent. As a Christian, I too find some lyrics foul, but also as a Christian, I don't judge. I use the mute button and wait for the next song to play. There are times that it seems nearly every song is a screamo or some kind of metal that was born in the deepest bowels of hell, we have all been there. That is when we either check out of HoRM for a few and go to a different room, or we simply turn plug off and move on over to Octane on SiriusXM. Take care bro, ans see ya around. :)
