OK...I dont quite understand your response other then the older you get. But at the same time i would love to know if younger people know as much as we did back when Beatles, Beach boys, Stones Led Zep et al were around.

I dont think ANY GROUP today comes even CLOSE to the notoriety bands had decades ago. And if so, What the hell happened to all the musical talent?? seriously

Mostly only listen to classical music now. In the 1960s it was easy to know all the great songs.

Could not name a single song in the top 50 for past 5 years.

It’s telling when a crap song from 15 years ago comes on the radio, and I realize it’s 10 times better than the current stuff. The system has killed the music.
If you're going to leave me red, please be specific about why I am a cunt. Otherwise I'll assume you're just tarded.

The matrix has been milked dry of spirit/talent. What's leftover are the drones... the yes men and yes women protecting banker and corporate interests.

Once a monetary system is in place where they can't just print cash to cover their asses, spirit/talent will be what generates money again... the cream will rise to the top in all sectors but especially the entertainment industry. That's my hope anyway.

All of music's popular delivery mechanisms have gone 100% corporate, from the concerts to the radio & every digital platform out there.

This reduces music down to a commodity, and corporations tend to stick with 'proven formulas' to move their inventory.

Risk and rebellion have been shelved after a focus group's feedback.

Corporations who fall in line with the bankers are successful.

Artists who fall in line with the corporations who fall in line with the bankers are successful.

Is this a debate?

Remove the bankers and corporations sink or swim based on their merit... ergo, artists sink or swim based on their merit.

We then get an entertaining entertainment industry again without bankers distorting where cash should and shouldn't go in the economy.

You're exactly right. And by doing that, it has removed all artistry from the music. Artists are too much of liability. It has rendered 90% of all music disposable. No more timeless music that will be listened to 100 years from now like all the stuff from the 50's - 80's.

It started in the 80's with MIDI and quantization (perfect click beats for musicians to play off of while recording). Sure, computers brought some great things to music, but over time they have nearly stripped all of the humanity/soul right out of it. In the 90's the compression wars stripped away all the dynamics. Then comes the 00's and AutoTune to rip out the last vestigal humanity and MP3 files to degrade audio quality completely and here we are.

It's all shit now. Another thing is that music itself is no longer appreciated in and of itself. It's all about the singers (most of whom blow) and their 'brand'.

Korn was probably the last truly innovative band to really shake things up musically and that was what? 30 years ago? Jesus.
I did it. I did it on purpose. And I'll do it again.

I have XM radio and sometimes turn it over to channel 1 Pop Hits which rotates something like the top 20 in the charts that day.

It is something beyond awful to listen to.

I mean it will just make you want to pull your hair out.

Autotuned, predictable beat, and the most braindead lyrics you can imagine. Not even interesting pop jingles. At least Katy Perry and Taylor Swift had some interesting pop jingles. These aren't even at that level.

It sounds like something a mildly retarded person would like.

Im a millennial born in 92.

And I can say honestly that todays music is fucking SHIT.

I only listen to music from 1990 back.

Any music from 1990 forwards is total shit.

Even most of my peers hate todays music.

They "present" it as "popular" in the media but in reality not many people actually like it.

And the ones that do are fags and freaks with neckbeards and manbuns.

Re: I swear i used to be able to name most TOP FIFTY Songs. Now, I have NO IDEA??
This is the number one song in the country right now. So, you tell me if music is worse today.

The big hook is, can't nobody tell me nothing, can't nobody tell me nothing, can't nobody tell me nothing, can't nobody tell me nothing.

The song has absolutely no tune, and we are all thankful it's only 3 minutes. The people who buy music today must be on some hard drugs.

The drunkest, worst Elvis who ever staggered his way through a concert was 100 times better than this. This isn't even garage band level local scene material.

This is something I can imagine a heroin junkie listening to right before he decides to end his life with an overdose from the needle in his arm.

Re: I swear i used to be able to name most TOP FIFTY Songs. Now, I have NO IDEA??
The top 50 or top 100 was based upon the sales of singles, do you remember singles ? 45RPM Vinyl records with a B side track. We heard about them new songs on a thing called a radio. The USA had a very regulated airwave censorship so most of their music came from Europe where censorship was much less systemic. There was some cool music back in the days.
And some real crap. [link to www.youtube.com (secure)] But there was the beginning of cool music too, [link to www.youtube.com (secure)] THEN the 45RPM vinyl record kept on selling and fortunes were made. [link to www.youtube.com (secure)] But the young folks today know nothing of all that.

Only time I listen to the radio is at the Gym on the gym speakers. I just realized I like two modern day songs-- "For a Thousand Years" and "Xs and Os"

Long way from Beatles, Stones, CCR, Simon and Garfunkel, Chicago, Beach Boys, and Billy Joel

Same with supposed movie and tv stars. They aren't stars anymore, they're dimwits! Don't know who they are, most don't care anymore!
Reality is that many are extremely flawed beings who should not be idolized or looked to as a example of anything to emulate!
