Mainstream is what's the new trend. when one "style" gets old, a new one is reborn, a mainstream person is someone who jumps from trend to trend so that they fit in with the rest of the crowd. Mainstream is being what society thinks you should be, and look like.
Avril lavigne took the casual wearage of the tie,something "underground" and unique, and turned it into something everyone wears, she turned it into something "normal", a trend. mainstream.

A gigantic brainwashing cover that the media and the government uses to blindly mislead people into all going the same way. Mainstream should die. I hate people nowadays because they are all the same: Same trend, same bland as pigshit personalities, and same predjudice. Rap is known for influencing mainstream. So is Hip-Hop.
Mainstream should die.

My popular friends accept me because I'm hot and I like all the mainstream artists on MTV.

Mainstream is the larger public, the masses, the big crowd. Things that are or become 'mainstream' are the things that currently sell the most and gain the most popularity.
Hip Hop has become mainstream and is being worn-out by the masses

The brainwash big businesses put out. They feed young adults with worthless movies and music. The trend. All very fake, they put out whatever is in style. Many are too filtered out by the mainstream's brainwash to wake up.
Very few mainstream artists are worth listening to.
"Reality" Tv shows would be an example. They saw how people watched Survivor, and they fed off it.

Something that is liked by a majority of people and doesn't pertain to any particular subculture. Mainstream is not a particular style of music, it has nothing to with rap, it has nothing to do with the media forcing various types of music down our throats. It's just stuff that a lot of people like. That's it.
And as for the people saying shit like "Mainstream should die"... What do you think would happen if everyone started listening to the more underground music that you like?

It would be mainstream. Faggot.
