"Dubstep" is very much like "trip hop", in that there is plenty of decent music which has been defined as being in that category, but anyone you hear in a pub talking about the genre is a wanker. They were wankers ten years ago with trip hop, they're wankers today with dubstep, and doubtless pubs will continue to be plagued with arrogant twenty-somethings pretending they know anything until the heat death of the universe.

You sound like such a grouchy old man--but a funny grouchy old man who is probably completely right, even though I have no idea about dubstep and triphop.

Any more sub-genres and you will need an A-level in music genres and sub-genres to know what the hell is going on - or supposed to be going on. What happens when you have "crossover dubstep and triphop" - dubhop, steptrip, stephop, dubtrip - I give up.
