I was talking to my friend who listens to nightcore and he tried to make me listen to slipknot nightcore
He tried to make you listen to sped-up Slipknot, not Nightcore. Only a certain set of electronic genres can be considered Nightcore when sped up, specifically those done by (or similar to those done by) the original Nightcore group. A playlist of their tracks can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... 553EB99A95
i put in every single type of music I like from from Classic rock to death metal I still couldn't like it.
I also explored speed-ups of many such genres at first, but it quickly became apparent that electric guitars in general sound really bad when sped-up (at least to me). I'm also not a big fan of most pitched up male vocals, it just feels wrong somehow (TO ME!!).
1 The fan base
I've not experienced any push-y-ness from the fanbase myself. It's quite understandable that sped-up music is and will always be a niche thing, so expecting everyone to like it is quite silly imho.
Anime pictures have somehow become the norm for Nightcore, probably due to the connection between high-pitched lyrics and certain anime girl voices, but having those picture be half-naked has never really been obligatory. However, sexy pics do pull views, this has been proven time and time again, which is why the Nightcore videos at the top of the search results will often have half-naked girls in them.
If you like a song but don't like the image, try kindly asking another Nightcore channel to upload the song with a more child-friendly image :) There are many many channels out there that try their best to be pretty tasteful and child-friendly in their image choices, and even a few that don't use anime images at all (though with great emphasis on *few* in this case ^^)
Essentially I feel that nightcore is it's own genre of music and it should be treated that way unlike a band.
Nightcore (and speed-ups in general) to me is an extension of existing genres of music, rather than a genre of its own. It's also a simple way to transition one genre into another genre, simply by increasing the tempo. For example, what do you get if you speed up Metal? Well, Speed Metal of course! But does Metal and Speed Metal have the same audience? No, they don't. (this example might be completely off, sorry, my Metal knowledge is a bit lacking :P)
BTW zurd IP ban this user and close this thread
Quiet LLA... He made a perfectly polite and intelligent post, and it's a discussion definitely worth having (again).
