* SensoryAbuse- Fans of the brostep and noisestep flavors would add "but in a good way!". Particularly harsh tracks tend to be fondly referred to as "dirty" or "filthy", playing off of those being the next level of grit up from "grungy".

Originally minimalistic, dark, and atmospheric, dubstep evolved over the course of the last decade. Beats became heavier, bass more abrasive, and as the sound gained mainstream popularity, more attention was paid to big drops and "filthy" wobbles (usually preceded by a 30-60 second long intro) than atmosphere. This new form of the style became known (somewhat derogatorily) as "brostep"; that is, dubstep that "[[{{Main/Fratbro}} bros]]" could enjoy. Contrast [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovQS1o6Dxfc "Midnight Request Line" by Skream]], one of dubstep's first crossover hits, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1VLaXoRRdk the Flux Pavilion remix of "Cracks" by Freestylers]], a popular song from about 2010. This division in sound has led to massive amounts of FanDumb and BrokenBase in the dubstep community, and it will most likely [[ThisIsGonnaSuck only get worse]], as dubstep has, as of 2012, appeared even in advertisements for films, television shows and products. Many artists that once associated with the genre are splintering off and working on other forms of electronic music, such as post-dubstep (dubstep meets R&B/soul), bass music and glitch hop.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Many dubstep releases (especially the older ones) tend to be very hard to find; much of the traditional dubstep that still exists today has virtually gone out of print, and new artists rarely release professional studio records, therefore the only practical way of obtaining most dubstep is through file sharing sites. Some artists have taken advantage of this by deliberately releasing albums for free, and making money through other means, such as performing live or selling dubstep-related merch.
