Kotaku Soundtrack is a selection of the stuff we're listening to—and gaming to—at the moment.
I can't stand rap/hip-hop but I love the march. It's impossible to be sad while watching those cats march across the screen to that tune.
I mean, I accept that there is skill and artistry in crafting clever lyrics and delivering them with good flow without your speech devolving into gibberish, but that's not music, that's talking to a back beat. It's pretty skilled talking (not always, of course) but I don't listen to music for the message. Especially not when the message, as far as I've heard, is usually one of selfish overindulgence or things that are harmful to oneself and/or others.
