Dance music is nothing new. It's been around forever, more specifically in electronic form since the 1970s. However, young Americans seem to think it was invented the day after Britney Spears shaved her head. After a mad scramble to identify this shiny, out-of-the-box new toy, some fucking dick labeled the whole thing "Electronic Dance Music." This accomplished two things; the invention of the most vague and useless genre-name of all time, and the beginning of the end. Ever since, mindless hoards have invaded dance floors and festivals nationwide in search of something they don't understand and refuse to actually respect. "EDM" means never thinking twice about what you're listening to, and never caring as long as it "bangs."
