Dope or Nope

A lot of the newer pop music songs (and bands) are utilzing some sort of "technology" to make their voices have an electronic/synth voice boxsound. It's gotten so "popular" that it has even been "mocked" in a Budweiser commercial.



The commercial is quite funny, but man do I hate this synth voice sound. And the thing is, more and more of these teeny-bopper pop singers are doing it. It's driving me crazy. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it!!!! I'm starting to sound the way my parents sounded when I played my rock-music back in the 80's.

Is this cool, or am I just losing touch? Dope or nope?

NOPE ! Can't stand it either. It's like an electric guitar's wah-wah pedal, except for the human voice.

It's a fad that SHOULD quickly die out. I hope.

When used correctly (to achieve a certain effect), I'm OK with it, but when it's used to cover up a lack of talent, then I'm not OK with it.

Do you really want us to say whether or not you're cool?

OK for anyone who needs a voicebox, like Ned from South Park. Otherwise, gag.

NOPE!!! It hurts my ears, but what's worse is that these goofs using this are making ten times more money than other artists with actual talent. If you need auto-tune in order to sound good, then you shouldn't be in the business of making music. Then again it's not really about sounding good anymore, is it?
