I imagine you're aware of "Too Close", either from the radio or from that excellent Internet Explorer ad. Just for reference, here it is:
My question stems mainly from my ignorance of dubstep. I do not want to start some sort of flame war in which everyone says how dumb or how amazing dubstep is. In my eyes, I don't appreciate what it's done to the music landscape or the sound itself, but I digress.
The question is: does that part during the chorus count as 'dubstep', or is simply distortion? From what I know of my brief exposure to dubstep, it has a much higher frequency(?) and much more distinct notes(?). However, not being a music person, I'm not sure. I call on you dubstep experts to school me on this on.
PS - Fun fact: for the first month that I heard in on the radio while driving to school, I was absolutely confident it was the Black Keys. That voice (and slight processing on it?) sounds damn near identical.
