    There is an on and off switch on everything. . . how is it shoved in your face again???

    You have a one-sided argument. . .

    What kind of music do you suggest that we use to make it better?

    While I can agree the sound can be better utilized, you have to be deaf not to realize how the dynamic range of low end in hip hop has been influenced by 808s. I think people's argument is with the current tempos and arrangements more than with the drumset.

    Songs like 'Mamacita" by Outkast or "Glaciers of Ice" by Raekwon(both way before 2006 BTW)display that 808s are utilized for more than just the current sound of hip hop and you have to be disconnected from "real hip hop' to think it wasn't a foundation to the sound.

    Afrikka Bambatta you smart-dumb muthaf**kas.
    Two things that annoy me are people who are positive out of ignorance, and people who are negative out of bitterness. People who are neither usually get along with me and agree with most of what I say. People who are one of the 2 think I'm the other.

    I can't believe there's another thread like this. I mean some people don't know their history or that the 808 are from a time (80's) when several genre's embraced drum machines. 808s are classsic and classic sounds should be respected (not saying every wantabe can make it sound good).

    808s will not be dieing anytime soon therefore i suggest you turn off your radio and tv and stop going to clubs and download a bunch of music you like without 808s and keep them on repeat for the rest of your life and when you go out use your ipod so you don't hear people playing any music with 808s in it this should solve your problem sir
