Default Today's "Music"

Today's music disgusts me...
I really don't think I should even call it music.
There's just no musical talent anymore. Lyrics, and instrumental.
Every song is about drugs, or love. lmao
And there's just about no prog anymore.
Am I the only one who thinks this way?
Here's what I've always listened to, so I guess my standards must be higher than others' today.
Rush
Tool
Floyd
Pearl Jam
75% or more of today's "artists" don't even write their own music...

I am likely much older than you but I have to agree. Sixties and early seventies we had anti Viet Nam music. I think that politics has put a damper on this kind of music on the airways or we would be hearing more of it. I don't think that an Edwin Star would get a chance now days. I am also missing the variety of sounds -Crosby Stills Nash, Creedance Clearwater, Eagles, Baez, King and Sweet Baby James, and of course Motown. When I turn on a local radio station many of the singers have voices that I can't distinguish.

I'm 30 and this sucks!!! Pop music is pretty good now but I'm not a 16 year old girl. It died in the late 90's to me. 60's=good add Motown and great 70's=best ever! 80's=good early 90's=to me fricken awesome with all the new types. Now it flat out blows and I find myself listening to 16 girl music. I can't even get through any new country song without changiv the channel. Same thing with new rock or whatever they are calling that stuff.

There is plenty of great music still being made out there, you just aren't likely to hear it on the radio.

I agree completely. I'm 51 and have at least 5 decades worth of music history stored and none of it is country music. Rock, soul, funk, blues, even some disco, but no country, just never acquired a taste for country. I know a lot of people get into it, and I'm not knocking it, it's just not for me. There's plenty of good new music available, you just have to weed through it. If you really think about it, there was an awful lot of crap in the 70's too, it just never had any staying power; the same holds true today. Once you weed through the junk, the good music will be here 30 years from now.

I think it has become all about packaging and marketing.

That was true in the Motown days for instance too, but then it was about bus tours and singles.

Now it's much more mass marketing and today's groups are all "flash in the pan". The labels use them up quickly and move on. Today's groups are a long line of the old "one hit wonders", but with a little more staying power.

The last "super group" is probably U2, though I'm sure I missed somebody.

I'm not sure we'll see REAL lasting music again. The latest "past" trend seems to be hip-hop, before that it was "grunge".

I can't see anybody listening to Curt Cobain or Snoop Dog when they are 60 years old. But we ALL listen to Motown or good Blues for instance. I listen to less and less Southern Rock as I get older.
