People need to quit with the "dubstep is not music" as it is patently false by nearly any definition of music you should choose. Elements of music such as rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre, texture, dynamics etc. are all well represented in both European and American dubstep styles.
Just because it does not please you aurally does not make it any less musical than your preferences. Saying differently just shows your lack of knowledge of music and to generally disregard your opinion on music, as an art form, entirely.
Say I came up to you with a orange cat and told you it was a cat, would you disagree with me because you do not like the color orange? The color of the cat does not affect its "catness" any more than the elements of music affect its "musicness" no matter how much you dislike them.
TL;DR: Dubstep is music regardless of your opinion.
