To respond to this, I intend to analyze the question through as many perspectives as I see fit. Keep in mind this is just a few of my takes on this, just personal opinion.

The music one or two generations counts as "mainstream" or "popular" undoubtedly changes greatly over the span of a few decades. The reasons behind this could be many, but I feel inclined to blame a few. First, music follows the mindset of the people, as the people create it, so therefore when the mindset of the masses changes, so does the music. But those who enjoyed the music of a different era and mindset cannot or choose not to comprehend its place as mainstream music. Who is it that judges a certain music as "good music"? us, the people who listen. So if the majority of people believe some music is good, why isn't it good? If it isn't good music, than how was good music deemed good music in the first place? I doubt someone who lived at the same time as Beethoven would enjoy Black Sabbath.

So, if I state the above, why wouldn't every piece of music that somebody loved on a platinum record? The most important reason of all, which dawned the illusion of the prior statement. Personal Preference. I don't enjoy what the masses of the 2000's call good music one bit, neither do I listen to what the masses of the 70's 80's and 90's listened to. I search through all kinds of music to find that which truly suits my personal mindset and personal preference, and find myself with so many different kinds of songs on my ipod.

What I'm trying to say here is that music is only poorly made or bad to the particular individual listening too it, and music can only appear good to the particular individual that listens too it. So the whole idea of mainstream music should directly conflict with the idea that everybody is different and has their own special personality. But it doesn't, because there is also such thing as people pretending to be someone who they are not, but that's a discussion for another time.

Agree with me or not, that is my take on your query. Though I may has strayed from the initial question a bit, i'm to tired to tell

"The type of music I listen to is what's good music" sounds arrogant and just as retarded

Honestly, i have to agree that personal preference is KEY with most things, so i will close this discussion with this thought

Is it not better to just listen to the music you like, and when someone listens to something you don't like, just say i don't like that and move on without bothering the other person? That is something i try to do with a lot of things, if i don't like it, i move on and i try not to bother people.

That is my final thought on this topic, based on everyone's comments and views.

Thanks members of CR for writing so many interesting points on the subject, always a pleasure

Yours truly, TPF

Lately I prefer music without some paid shrill who is either in a cult or is too naive to understand their owned by who knows what to make a vast income by selling shallow lyrics and shallow values to an easy to conditioned society which lacks the empathy to give a rats ass..and people wonder why I dislike most Hu-mans .....So lately I am listening to lot's of different beats and sounds without a shred of a human dolt talking in it....music now should speak for itself....not have someone speak for it..The Composers had it right and now we must go back to only the sound itself being the voice....humans have ruined it.

Honestly, it depends on your tastes. I'll admit i don't listen to the radio much anymore, but there are artists who love music and making music and its actually good music. So i suggest we start a list of artists from this generation that rock. heres mine:

Florence + The Machine
Mumford and Sons
Janelle Monae
Franz Ferdinand
Ellie Goulding
Class Actress
Foster the People
Fun.



Music hasn't gotten worse, it's changed. There has always been corporate made music that can be considered terrible, but I like all the bands above SOOOOOOOO much better than anything not punk from the 80's.

I only listen to trance and japanese music. When I hear people listening to R and B or raps about money and girls, it seriously annoys me.

Well, there was just as much crappy, popular music back then, but you just don't hear it today and people forget it because it wasn't all that good. It's all too easy to think fondly of the old days when you only remember the good things.

There's lots of great music that has been made in the 21st century, popular music too.

When values are complete shit like they have been manufactured its easy to see who is a legit artist and who is a ****ing fake piece of trash. This is why I have a stronger opinion, the longer you live the more you study the more you know and most of the music before the mid 80s will be remembered forever (good and the bad), everything else will slowly be forgotten and its because of the values in music have changed forever due to how slowly the industry was controlled by other groups, most artists now unless they are legit (underground) or intelligent enough will not touch base with this, I find its easier to trick people into liking shitty music by using the media & its mediums. Not too long ago Youtube has caught fake accounts trying to booster likes for famous artists (more or less cheating for popularity) The music industry itself will fake being ontop when ever it pleases..it's done it before and will keep doing it until people wise up and see the mainstream artists are trying to feed people Propaganda, henche why people would rather listen to something before 1987 in hopes its not lazly written, played and sold to be something for someone else...that is if they choose to see it. Many people decide to not care and get too easily offended at this notion, which helps it stay hidden and making unfair profits, hell the internets thriving community of musical talent threatens them which is pushing for more mediocre vocalists to support censorship which is slowly happening..I am talking about Written music by Bands & artists who use music more expressively to tell their opinion..who had success.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/propaganda I am pretty sure you know what it means, and its not hard to see two decades of war propaganda sold to audiences Just look at Kiss, Iron Maiden, Megadeath,Kayne West, Alan Jackson and countless others, that is just one racket the Music Industry is promoting.
