    - Merzbow and Michael Jackson are both geniuses in their own way, one of them is a genius at creating music and dances that can make people feel incredibly happy, the other is a genius at creating performances and music that disturb people deeply. In their own ways, both of them revolutionized music as an artform; Merzbow through his bondage based performance art and animal rights activist noise albums, Michael Jackson through his music videos, dance choreography and stage performances.

    - Prince hasn't been relevant as a musician since the 80s because he was consumed by his own narcissism. He completely destroyed his entire career and legacy by alienating an entire generation of potential fans by being a piece of shit about the internet.

    - Death Grips was a fad that will phase out over the years, however they will be remembered more for their personas moreso than the actual music they created. Kind of like how a ton of people know who GG Alin is, but not that many people actually like listening to his music.

    - Jazz and Electronic are two of the best forms of music in terms of how intricate the music presented in those forms can potentially be.

    - Kanye West is hilarious because he's obsessed with becoming as successful a musician or comparable to Michael Jackson (constantly trying to compare himself to Michael, citing him as an inspiration/motivation), but he doesn't even have half the talent or work ethic Michael had, nor even 1/10th of his fame, sales or love from his fans. The one thing he shares with him is being persecuted by the media and society for being an extremely successful black man. He kind of earns the flak he gets though, by being an overtly arrogant asshole who thinks he can be compared to Jackson despite not being able to sing well or dance.

    -A guitarist that can write music well without needing to "shred" is superior to a guitarist than can play with great technical skill

    He does have a knack for disappearing for months at a time, in order to find his muse...

    ...Or he just needs some major alone time from Kimmy K and the clan. :kanyeshrug

    If they're a fad they're a pretty long one.

    And I've certainly seen more people who know about Death Grips than GG Allin and/or the Murder Junkies.

    Death Grips are hardly a fad, seeing as their cult following has only gotten larger. They've been prolific throughout this entire decade, releasing many celebrated albums.

    If anything I see them in hindsight becoming a signature 2010's band that we'll associate this decade with.
