Passion Project Progress 2

10-15-14
So far my progress is going pretty well, but I do wish do get a lot more done in the next two weeks. But, in these past two weeks I've started talking more about why alternative music isn't as popular. Rather than researching other people's opinions I gave more of my own opinion so that people could know what I personally think. Also, I started researching what people think the genre of Panic! at the Disco is and I surprisingly found many different opinions. With that I also put what I think the main genre of Panic! at the Disco is and why. In the next two weeks I hope to research a lot about the band members themselves and why they named the band Panic! at the Disco.

Passion Project Update

My passion project is based off a band I really like called Panic! at the Disco. So far, over the two Friday's we have had to work on our passion projects I really haven't been able to get a lot done. The reason for this is because the first Friday I didn't have a computer so I wasn't able to accomplish much on paper. I wrote down the songs of the band the first week but that isn't much help for my project considering I want to find out more than their songs and go more in depth about the members themselves. The second Friday I started researching about Alternative music and why it isn't as popular now as it used to be and why other types of genres are more popular instead. When I researched this I wasn't able to find out a lot because most of the information was from wikipedia and I know that that isn't really reliable. So, in my opinion I mainly think that Alternative music isn't as popular because many kids and teens nowadays consider it as old music and would rather listen to the tunes on the radio such as Chris brown, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, etc. All of these whom are pop and rap artists. Also, teens don't know about the bands such as Paramore, Panic at the Disco, All Time Low, etc. which are all a pop alternative type of music. This Friday I hope to get a lot more done and able to research a whole lot more.
