Music Today

Recommended Posts

Kids these days...

The kids today thing is so last millennia.

 

The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.--Socrates.

As to your point. You are suffering a severe case of selection bias. Who remembers the shit music from decades ago? No one, that's who. And in a few decades time who will remember the shit music of today?

 

My advice. Stop listing to the radio or watching video hits.

 

Thus far, and this is a biased Australian perspective, I imagine some of the memorable artists of this decade will include

 

big list...

 

To name a few.

 

Some go between 99 to 00, but there you go.

 

 

Edit: Cunt spell.

 

A few of those are bands that got started last decade.

The point is modern music is heaps better than music of yesterdecade. People who disagree either listen to the radio, are too lazy to go searching for it, or have their head so far up the arse of history that they can't hear anything.

 

But that's just my opinion.

Massive FAIL!

Ripped the radio aerial cable off my stereo years ago. Can't stand mainstream shitty simple lifeless pop music that lacks inspiration, energy, and emotion.

 

Each to their own with music tho. Everyone's different. But still...

Yeah you can fill your head with all the shit music and watch Mtv for all the sex and violence you want on TV, but you can't play Aliens Vs Predator.

Is it any different to the past though?

I mean its easy to program a radio station today to play the best hits form the 60's 70's and 80's because they have 3 decades to program the best from, at the time however I'm sure there was shit songs rotating around they just weren't kept for today with the classics.

I wasn't around at the time but I'm sure its the case because whenever I hear people talk about how much better music was in the past or watch rockwiz or that other one its always the same bands/artists that are brought up.

Bands like the monkeys seem to have been junk achieving super popularity.

 

 

On such a subjective topic though it is hard to find concordance of opinion.
