why does yesterday's pop music suck so much

:iconneurotype:

Seriously, those synthesizers. What were we thinking?!

But anyway, the real complaint is that people continue to not figure out that we only get the best of the best older stuff handed down to us, so of course the newer stuff won't be as good :stare:

This applies to all kinds of media, really.

tl;dr: I got to be on the radio! Turns out they prerecord stuff, hence the funky voices. I always thought it was live....

Auto-tune has made most music these days sound the same while removing the need for really any singing talent whatsoever.

Garbage-in, garbage-out seems to apply here.

Eh, I can't exactly say I agree with you, but I don't disagree with you either. There are some pretty crappy bands out there, but there are some gems too.

In music we're studying how a lot fo music these days is more centered around rhythm and beat than the melody like in the past. I personally like rythm and melody.

There's a theory that pop music has 'evolved' to the point where it has parameters; record labels aren't comfortable with straying too far outside the lines, for fear of wasting money on an embarrassing non-hit.

Of course, when that odd song does it, it becomes that much more memorable. Contemporary case in point: fun's new song Some Nights, which uses its Civil War-era theme to full effect.

All good band (rock/metal) are going down and down. For example, Linkin Park was my favourite band until their penultimate album. Same as Korn or Metallica. Saying briefly, new generation sucks.

I don't listen to the radio... ever...

I'd be perfectly content to just listen to the contents of my ipod for the rest of my life.

I don't listen to the radio because it has a lot of shit. Instead, Youtube's related vidoes thing helps me find the really good music around nowadays. Like God Is An Astronaut, Globus, and TesseracT. :la:

I feel that you can't really compare things like that, just because it's pretty different and relative, like.

I think the music is great nowadays. :shrug:
