Yeah music today absolutely sucks! By that I meant all pop songs and popstars. I mostly listen to Rock from The Beatles, Led Zeppelin to Florence and the Machine and Lana Del Rey, and there are also good music being made today but they are so RARE and their all mostly indie. I also like classical. But I really despise mainstream music!

People seem to be too lazy to search for music they enjoy and assume everything is bad. It doesn't help that most people have a pretty limited taste and probably won't bother to listen to anything pre-1950's. There's such a ridiculous amount of music available, even within the last decade, that it's impossible for someone to not find a large repertoire to listen to.

The Beatles more or less made pop what it is today. You're confusing.

Well they were pop for their time. I consider their works from 67 onwards as rock though, just my opinion. Whatever I hear.. But I don't listen to any music which it is made by jamming on a spacebar or a macbook and uses stupid autotune.

Me. I wish auto-tune got destroyed.
There are too many people who think they have talent because of it.

Plus, I think music by people like Lil Wayne and LMFAO is just trash, period.

Can't waste my time listening to that type of absolute crap.

Apparently music has always been poorly made since according to the people I know who are 30+ years old the music back when they were growing up was terrible also. At least according to most of them, some insist that the music "back in their day" was better or "more real".

Me thinks that the latter group has just forgotten the crap that was on the radio at the time due to a combination of forgetting the awful generic stuff and nostalgically praising the good stuff. Check out the Billboard Hot 100's for the 70's and 80's some time, the shit that got big then...

The reason I find for 'poorly' produced is accessibility. It's easier to make music than it was ten, twenty years ago - because of cheaper hardware, a wider range of DAWs, push controllers, a greater emphasis on style and image over sound quality, etc. More people can make music for the wrong reasons. However, some of that accessibility also means that music can be made even more creatively...

Just a few of this century's offerings. I don't claim to have a 'great taste' in music, but if anyone likes what they found here, PM me - I'd be glad to recommend more.

I don't really understand this thread. Is the point just rant about music I don't like?
Posted 4/17/13
Not really. Every era has had their fair share of bad music.

Only if that music came out in the last 13 years.

So if you wanted to rant about the awful saccharine pop from the 70's-80's, terrible hair metal in the 80's, the atrocious gangsta rap and copy paste alternative rock from the 90's, or all the gimmicky crap from the 40's through the 60's then you'd need to make another thread.

No. I listen to whatever I like in the end. I might not care for much of the USA's chart topping songs but they don't affect me. I try to not bash down on others' musical tastes either since I imagine I wouldn't like them talking smack about my own tastes which admittedly, are rather on the diverse side.

Not all music nowadays are bad. Some people just don't know where to look or are too lazy to look. I'm choosy about what songs I put on my phone and as long as I can listen to those songs anytime I want, I have no problems if most record companies keep producing crap.

Not all music is bad. Pop, maybe. But you need to check out more music if you believe that ALL music made nowadays sucks.

This is why I like sites like pandora and grooveshark, since you can test which things you like or browse at random. though pandora doesn't have op's and some other music.

Oh. My. Gkjhfkdhsfknaljoaijr.
PSY? Drake? Rihanna? Justin Bieber?
All this crap they call 'music' sickens me.
The only music I listen to is the stuff no one else listens to.
Ooh yeh~ And it's all about the 50's/70's/80's.
