Throughout the years, decades really, there have been some notable musicians, bands, even entire musical movements. Many have said that hasn’t happened in a while. Well, let’s get off the track of the boring and unoriginal and put on a new one. The Chainsmokers. They’ve tapped into the heartbeat of the world and it just keeps on going. For over a year matter of fact. Everyone knows and has heard of the Billboard’s ranking. You make it on that list, that’s a feat. You make it to # 1 in a genre and hang out there for a while, you’re , well, smoking.
So who are they anyway? The Chainsmokers are an American DJ and invention duo– Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Their big hit, Roses came out in October 2015 and they’ve been hanging at the top ever since. So why are there some “not so nice” things being said about them? I mean, clearly they’re good, otherwise why would they hang out at the top for so long? Well, to quote Rolling Stone- “Review: Chainsmokers’ ‘Memories’ Is a Drab, Monotonous Whinge.” Ouch. But in this day and age, it’s fun to hate. To Quote Morgan Baila on rifinery29 “- I have a theory as to why the Internet is so psyched to hate The Chainsmokers: because it’s fun.” If they sucked, they wouldn’t be at the top. So sit down haters. Get off Twitter and feel the love. Better yet, Make some Memories. Just don’t open them… Yeah- I just did that.
