To be fair, as a millenial I can definitely say that millenials are killing music. These days radios only play pop music, only the most hackneyed pandering trite gets popular and anything with effort and artistic direction gets buried and becomes difficult to search for.

Uh no his point is that non millenials also made shit music popular.

Where he slips up is comparing Billy Ray Cyrus, who's career peaked at #4 on the billboard, to Justin Bieber who has had a career filled with #1s.


Okay thanks for the enlightenment was wondering what bloody point he was harping on. But the 60s,70s,80s, and early 90s gave us their fair share of great bands as well. Can you say the same about the last 19 years or so?

I think that it's an interesting topic, but this is nothing new. Generations have been worried about their successors since at the least the Ancient Romans. The bases for the baby boomers complaints with the millennials is that they are different from them. Which is fine, they can try to preserve their own 'sub-culture' (for lack of a better term), and millennials will probably do the same with the next generation.

Now, with the whole music argument: Since art imitates nature and vise versa, then one could make the statement that pop is bad for the same reasons as the millennials generation. For example, pop is repetitive and generic, so millennials are repetitive and generic (meaning they just copy the "cool" stuff from past generations and don't have a culture of their own). Or that pop require little to no talent and heavily relies on a computer to make the sounds, so millennials have little to no talent (or skill, as talent is a form of skill) and heavily rely on computers to do anything.

...but that's just my two cents :/

Each generation creates and destroys many things. It would be difficult for millennials not to destroy. Technology makes it a lot easier for society to fluctuate, so it is probably more to blame than other factors. The notion that technology is neutral - who is to blame for that? Anyway, collective blame is tricky.

Mastodon, The Killers, Muse, Coldplay(yeah they make shitty music now, but Rush of Blood and Viva La Vida are really good pop albums), The Gorillaz, Interpol, Queens of the Stone Age, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, The Artic Monkeys, The Dear Hunter, Car Seat Headrest, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Arcade Fire, The National


The thing is, a lot of those bands I personally don't like, but I also don't like a LOT OF bands from the 90's that are critically acclaimed. All the bands I listed are critically acclaimed and most of them have radio hits.

You're also not including individual artists in which there are a lot of great ones, like Sufjan Stevens

you're also COMPLETELY disregarding that a lot of 90's bands have their best work in the 2000's. I mean, Radiohead and Modest Mouse are both considered "90's bands" but their best albums are from the 2000's (Moon and Antarctica and In Rainbows)
