A few weeks ago on the bombcast Ryan and Jeff were talking about a 'new genre' of music that the 'kids' were into these days of which they couldn't understand.

It was like a mix of screamo and auto tune mixed with dubstep maybe? I found a video at the time but can't find it now, would like to watch again for the hilarity.

Are you talking about groups like brokeNCYDE?

#3 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4233 posts) -

Bring Me The Horizon, I Set My Friends on Fire, come to mind. I guess that stuff doesn't really have a genre.. Just call it Hard-Step.

Actually, maybe it might be metalcore..

#4 Posted by RazielCuts (2973 posts) -

@wjb: That was it, BrokeNCYDE. I guess not really a genre and more of a cluster fuck mish mash of 'popular' genres. Thanks (I guess, ha).

I've been trying to remember this one band Jeff mentioned one time. It was during the live-cast Jeff and Alex did traveling to E3, in that Camaro, last year. It has like a pink cover, and the album came out in 2008. And sort of sounds like this.

If anyone remembers, let me know!. I would write it down, then.. :D

That's a reasonable response, actually.

They combined crunk with screamo? Can we as a society become any lower?

My brow is intensely furrowed. How does someone do that and think "I should share this with the world" and not "I should set this on fire and then bury it"?

Man, how underage is the girl at 2:06/2:07 in the purple strap getup?

Scratch that, most of the girls seem underage to me because of their inability to do sexyface on command or keep a straight face while being called a liar.

I'm not even angry or offended by the brokencyde song, I don't even actively hate it. I think it would require some craft or imagination to garner strong emotions. It just feels lazy and flimsy, like something made as a parody of the actual song. I guess 16 year olds still need songs to offend their parents.

dude...

The mash of genres alone is enough to make someone sick.. But the lyrics on top of that!

#18 Edited by AngriGhandi (784 posts) -

This entire song sounds like that awful moment at a house party, where some dude who is drunk off his ass starts screaming belligerently at his girlfriend in the corner of the room.

Suddenly the music stops and everyone is like "oh my god, what is wrong with that asshole," and then they kick him out and maybe call the cops, feeling shame and regret on behalf of themselves and all the people involved

Except in this case that moment never ever ends

When I first saw it, my immediate reaction was laughing for 10 minutes followed by "Everyone I know needs to see this," so I understand the desire to share this national treasure with the world.

#20 Edited by TheThirdRLM (148 posts) -

Oh wow. No guys, this great. Don't you just want to get effing FREAKY now!? Unh. Unh. Unh.

Did I really just hear "I don't waste my time with thespians"!?

...kill me.

EDIT: Okay, I looked it up. They say "lesbians". I can't tell if that's better or worse, but either way I'm offended. Not by the lyrics, but by the fact brokeNCYDE is a thing.

We're old men getting angry at the newest pop music.

#22 Posted by wjb (1674 posts) -

This song is old hat, but my favorite part is still the line: "They pull their panties down/they take their pants off."

How?

#23 Posted by Animasta (14711 posts) -

this is not pop music.

if it was it would be popular.

Offended? That video is funniest thing I've seen on youtube in a while and the idea that anyone would listen to that song to derive pleasure from it makes it ten times funnier. There are times when you hear a song or see a movie or tv show and think that it's just the worst form of awful garbage bullshit ever to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public - from now on you will KNOW, with absolute certainty, that it could have been so much worse. It could have been brokeNCYDE.

#26 Edited by RazielCuts (2973 posts) -

@kentonclay: This was exactly my reaction, everyone must share in this!

#27 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2188 posts) -

@animasta: Yeah, this is the kind of music that would only be popular with kids in Wisconsin who 'party' by huffing random aerosoles.

#28 Posted by JazGalaxy (1576 posts) -

So the music, minus the lyrics, isn't really that bad. It reminds me a lot of Family Force 5. That VIDEO, though, is HYSTERICAL. WHy are they screaming at the girls faces while they try to dance like they're hot? It's just a dumb idea for a video. The budget for this video was whatever it cost to buy that alcohol.

#29 Posted by NegativeCero (3012 posts) -

I'm kind of baffled that this is the first time a lot of you have heard of them. I guess I spend too much time on the forums.

#30 Posted by villainy (566 posts) -

"Imagine an impassioned triceratops mating with a steam turbine, while off to the side Daft Punk and the Bee Gees beat each other to death with skillets and spatulas. Imagine the sound that would make. Just try. BrokeNCYDE is kind of like that, except it also makes you want to jab your thumbs into your eyeballs and gargle acid."[19]

That quote from Wikipedia made this all worth it.

#31 Edited by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

I thought brokencyde had more money than that, that music video was super low quality and screamed Turquoise Jeep(except Turquoise Jeep is an actual parody group and not a "serious" band).

#32 Posted by CrazyBagMan (846 posts) -

I went to their wikipedia and realized that they were from Albuquerque New Mexico, suddenly everything made sense.

#33 Posted by zudthespud (3283 posts) -

I forgive that monstrosity of a song because the genre is "Crunkcore" and that's pretty hilarious.

#34 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11908 posts) -

Bahahaha. This is music? That someone would listen to in an unironic fashion? Truly we live in an enlightened age.

#35 Posted by theveej (839 posts) -

I think actually seeing the music video and the actual faces of the people "singing" made the whole thing a lot more pathetic/hilarious.

Listening to the podcast I thought this was going to be something like Death Grip, but its the complete opposite. COMPLETE OPPOSITE.

#36 Edited by Scrawnto (2456 posts) -

@kentonclay: Well, I meant on behalf of the people who made it, not people who found it on youtube or whatever.

#37 Posted by Demoskinos (15010 posts) -

BrokenCyde is one of the only "musical" and I use that term VERY loosely acts that make me just cringe every single time I hear anything from them. Even with music I don't like I can usually be like Yeah, I get how someone with different tastes could be into this I guess. Not with this. I just get angry and wonder if I just caused damage to my hearing.

#38 Edited by Godlyawesomeguy (6399 posts) -

I made it 24 seconds into that song before compulsively pausing it. Holy shit.

I'm eighteen years old, by the way. You guys aren't a bunch of old guys hating on the newest trend or whatever. However unreliable of a source of whatever popular new music is out right now I may be, if it gives anybody any consolation, this is the first time I've heard anything about this type of genre.

EDIT: Wait, is this even popular? Is it popular in the way Rebecca Black was "popular" two years ago?

You guys are way too hard on this achievement in musical history. I mean, the guy in the pink shirt does an absolutely amazing impersonation of the zombie sounds from DayZ. It had me checking my back every two seconds.

I'm not sure if people bought this song because of how terrible it was or because they are terrible people.

I like the part when the guy is screaming in the girls face about the dance floor.

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say that they listened to them once, and immediately went and grabbed 3,999 people, saying "You've got to hear this ridiculous thing!". Unfortunately, he only had headphones, so they had to go one at a time.

@razielcuts: Sweet Jeebus, when they mentioned Brokencyde I pictured them as just some Creed-esque mook-rock, not THIS. Some girls like cheesy midtempo dance music, but who wants to be screached at while dancing to that?

The scarier thing is I clicked through to another song and caught myself thinking "This isn't so terrible." This one sounds like a catchy goof that Midnight Brown would do:

The way they rhyme "dick" with "dick" reveals the soul of a poet.

#47 Posted by wjb (1674 posts) -

@godlyawesomeguy: I don't think they were ever genuinely popular. From what I remember, the played small, hole-in-the-wall venues and rode in a van.

It was a group the Internet made fun of a few years ago. They were "look how dumb this shit is" popular.

I think. I have no perspective of what kids like, though.

I appreciate that you just found me my new #1 summer jam. This song takes the "it's so bad it's good" rule to the point where it's so fucking horrendous that it has to be some sort of brilliant satire on music that my tiny brain just can't understand. Listening to this song makes everybody smarter.
