What is dubstep?

Dubstep is a music genre, a feeling, and a lifesstyle.
-Okay maby not a lifestyle, but it's pretty damn awsome.
Dubstep is a genre of electronic music. Mostly known by it's head-slamming bass, and neat wobbles.

What is so good about dubstep?

Tough question, with a lot of answears. 

one of the things i personally like is how one song can be extremely chill, while another song
can be extremely hardcore, and how it's a 100% up to the dj to decide the mood and the overall feeling of the song.
a good example would be Skrillex's ~Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites~. This song is extremely high speed,
and really awsome. Now let's take a look at Munkey's remix of ~Time is now by Moloko~ This remix is extremely chilled,
and makes for a great background track for when doing something like browsing facebook, reading twitter,
or hell, even writing blog posts. one is high speed, and makes you feel like you can conquer the World, and the 
other one makes you feel weightless and makes your head nod. While they both have two things in common.
It's dubstep, and it's awsome.
So in conclusion, it's really up to the individual person to decide what they like about dubstep.
