I can't be the only one who think thats modern music (EG. Rap, Hip hop, dubstep, techno) sounds like s**t. Music back in the 70s and 80s is how it allways should be.

The eighties were sh*t and the seventies got boring in the nineties. Music is getting better and better, you're looking in all the wrong places then bitching about it instead of actively seeking out good music.

Hah, I love when these kinds of topics show up. From what I can tell, you're a person who has never reached out beyond what you hear on the radio or what your friends suggest you listen to. Music is superb right now, but we all have our own definitions of what today's music is. If you're going to deem today's music sh*t and not take a chance to broaden your horizons, then please refrain from complaining about it.

And as far as the 70s/80s: Might want to take off the rose tinted glasses.

Anyone without a tin ear should be able to tell, How do you eclipse the masters?? Even one band following up their own success have trouble, but ultimately the bar got raised with each master release

No music nowadays is great, catchy as hell, some great vocals, and bag autotune all you like, if it sounds good who gives a f*ck? I like dubstep a fair bit now.

There is soo much more to what you hear on the radio pal, you need to branch out.

These topics always spring up with a certain animosity between the type that say "them were the good ol' days" and the folks that, you know, actually look for current music they like. I was in the camp that thought current music was horrible back in 2004, because I was still barely exploring music passed what was played on the radio. Since then I've found whole subgenres that are quite amazing and could never have happened before this generation.

Ever since the first caveman hit the skin of a pig with the bone of an ox, music has been sh*t.

Music today is the best it has been for a long time. I'm not a pop man by any accounts, but I find it's far easier to listen to now than it was a few years ago. Production is stellar, the texture of people's voices are different and artists are pushing boundaries. That's not just with pop either, I'm just keeping it relevant to what you hear on the radio. From hip-hop to soul, R&B to metal, there's some good in it all.

Keep digging.

What a load of bullsh*t I've read in awhile.
One thing among other things I hate about my generation is you haters.

I'm very glad and happy though that people in my generation listen real artists/bands like Led Zeppelin and Bruce Springsteen, just to name a few.

I just don't get that what do you guys like about todays commercialised and autotuned mainstream garbage.

New songs I like today are from artists and bands from the 70's and the 80's.

Seriously though, as good as it was in the 70s and 80s? Remember the auditory abortion that was disco and how it ruled the airwaves for an entire f*cking decade?

It's a unique time we're currently in, because while mainstream garbage continues to pound the airwaves, it's just as easy to find a multitude of fresh, innovative music that would have been harder to find just a decade or so ago. And it's pretty much entirely due to the internet evolving in a manner that makes diversity easily accessible via youtube, social networks and all kinds of music services.

So if you don't like the way the radio continues to offend your ears, then cease to use it as a source for music. I basically have and I couldn't be happier about that.

Pop music is sh*t, has generally always been sh*t, and will most likely continue to be sh*t. It's manufactured for the masses; give them some easy listening as they go about their day. There's no point making a big deal out of it, you'll just drive yourself up the wall.

I adore where electronic music's at right now. The internet's revolutionised the spread of ideas and sounds, and made it so easy to seek out the kind of music you want.

Overall, I agree with you, although I've found the music I enjoy listening to. Isn't that what it's all about?
Maybe it's time to stop bitching around. Music changes overtime, maybe it gets better again sometime.

the eighties were sh*t? are you for real? you were obviously the one looking in the wrong place when you were judging the eighties. kids these days... dozingoff.gif

and obviously pop music has gone down the sh*tter but there are loads of great bands/artists out there, I'm sure there was this indie thread around here somewhere with some good links. But to be fair once you find good stuff from the past it's difficult to listen to newer music because you realise a lot of the original ideas obviously came from the past. you are in no way going to find decent music looking at the charts and subscribing to a sh*tty dubstep channel on youtube.

God forbid someone insult the 1980s. I love music from that decade just as much as the next guy, but seriously. Calm thy breasts.

Music isn't getting worse; there has always been artists who solely rely on simple, quickly-produced hits to make their money, as well as those who eat it up. Most don't see this, because we see older music as nostalgic. Though, it may be seen as becoming worse considering technology is allowing music to be edited much more than before.

I guess it all depends on your perspective. Kids these days (and in the past) are angsty, and culture chooses some random musician to be their idol. There have also been really bad artists in the past that (as cracked put it) people choose to forget in favor of the better ones.

QUOTE

This pretty much sums it up.



EDIT: (because I didn't give a real answer) Personally I think music has gotten better through the 20th century, and then fell somewhere in the 90s or 00s, but I'm judging from the perspective of someone who listens to drum n bass, and chill out.

Kids these days? My generation? I'm older than the both of you, and have probably listened to a wider variety of music than you're even aware of. So kindly cram your elitist past-bashing sh*t up your asses, if there's one kind of music elitist I absolutely abhor it's kids who can't look past the early nineties and claim anything and everything new and innovative as sh*t because they're stuck in an endless loop of classic circle jerking. You're the kind of idiot that feels the need to incessantly repeat an endless rhetoric about how Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are somehow the antichrist made flesh. Go preach your crap to someone who cares.

Hair metal was by far the most disgusting creation music has seen since Country was popularized and twisted with pop to create the horrifying bastard child the CMT awards recognize nowadays and it was the defining musical movement of the eighties and very early nineties. Every generation has good music, but in that same right, the defining music of said generations hold the capability to bring an entire decade down. Not to mention the eighties breeding a fairly hefty collection of pop that can't be described as anything other than utter crap.

Gah, it's so easy to start bashing this type of music and that type of music, but you could take a sample top 10 singles from any time in the 60s, 70s or 80s and I'd find something in there likeable. Today I could not say the same. I'm just going to leave you with this.

Oh I know not all modern music is dire. I happen to love Opeth for a start (I'd have gone for 'I Feel the Dark' if I were to pick a song from Heritage, but whatever tounge.gif ). I was basing what I said on popular music and what gets all the radio coverage and what charts highly and sells well.

Vampire Weekend, Tyler the Creator, Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris all get or have got fair amounts of both radio and TV play. Stop looking entirely at the lowest common denominator.

Yeah and I suppose you could say there was a fair amount of populist bilge in the earlier decades that sold moderately well too. Fair enough. I just stumbled across that Minaj "song" a couple days ago and cannot get my head around it.

But yeah, I enjoyed that Lindsey Stirling video, that's what makes Music Chat so good, finding new stuff icon14.gif

There absolutely is great great music being made now, just as there always has been, and I venture to say, always will be. It's dizzying how much good stuff is out there. Many brilliant jazz and electronic albums in particular, that I've found coming out. Indie music of the Pitchfork variety is not what it was four or five years ago, IMHO, and of course the most pop of pop (what is played on radio) seems to continue to be made to appeal to the ever lessening common denominator... but you can always find good sh*t. You may have to dig for it, find it from more than two or three easy little sources, but it's there.

It always seems as if the pop of yesteryear was more solid than today's... but that's probably mostly because it's only the really good (or at least honestly decent) stays in the public consciousness for decades. As someone said above me, every era has had more than its fair share of insufferable pop music.
