Oh no, pop is dead
Long live pop.
It died an ugly death,
By back catalogue.

Pop is dead in this town…Long Live Pop!

Seattle, October 2013

Thom Yorke has predicted the death of the music industry.

The 41-year-old Radiohead frontman – who split from record label EMI in 2007 after recording six albums – has advised aspiring musicians to try and make it on their own, rather than sign a deal with a major company.

In an interview for a new school textbook, Thom claims the mainstream music industry is dying and this will be „no great loss to the world“ before telling musicians not to „tie themselves to the sinking ship“.

Pop is dead and we have killed it. This is my generation, and I’m not impressed.

  1. Pop ist nicht tot, sondern eben pop – ulär und deshalb Volksmusik, die allerdings nicht vom Volk nach Lust und Laune sondern von Profis nach marktgerechten Gesichtspunkten „fürs“ Volk gemacht wird. Über die politischen Konsequenzen der Art dieser Für-Sorge kann man unterschiedlicher Meinung sein.

    Wenn man unter POP den Musikgeschmack des denkbar größten Teils einer Gesellschaft versteht, stimmt die Aussage, daß POP tot ist.
