I wont lie, i used to listen to emo and **** and than I got into Pink Floyd realized it was way better for me personally because they're just amazing and their lyrics are wonderful and everything, so anyway I went on a journey for 6 months listening to classic rock, and now I cant even pick up a new cd without puking little in my mouth. I used to like bands like saves the day, under oath, but is it just me but the talent is on decline big time, there are no more amazing guitarists like jimmy page, hendrix or whatever, and most of the bands today just do nothing at all. Its not just emo im fed up with other bands arent really up there either.

Its the same with movies, where are the steven speilber and kubrick of next generation? Movies is still a little better but damn the music quality in the world is going down.
 
Congratulations for expressing a sentiment found all over this board. Everywhere.
 
Maybe music isn't dead, maybe we all just forgot what it ****ing sounded like.
 
You don't get fed the good music of nowadays, you have to look for it.
 
Music isn't permamently going down hill, but it's bad right now. It happens. It's all cyclic. Plus, you were listening to particularly bad music.
 
because kids today don't really care about what music came out more than five years before, so instead of listening to the bands they like and the bands that came before them and so on, thus building a rich tapestry of influences, they just settle for whatever they like that came this week, thus watering down the overall musica quality

if more people did what you did, trust me, the quality of music would go up
 
Go pick up every TOOL album made . . . and regardless of what you think, keep listening to it until you LOVE it . . . it will happen, then get Mars Volta; repeat step 1
 
The key is that most mainstream music sucks these days, with a few exceptions. Most of the music I buy these days is from bands that are under the radar, the kind of music some people might call me pretentious for listening to (lots of alt. country, neo-psychedelia and neo-garage rock...hipster music if you will). You just have to look a little harder to find good music. There's still plenty out there.
 
mainstream music usually sucks

Same here... well currently, anyways.

A friend of mine has been getting me into Japanese and Korean music lately. Alot of good stuff.
 
Just listen to Madonna, Black Eyed peas, Shakira, PussyCatDolls or any pop act.
 
I thought the point of this thread was to get ideas of music to get away from that stuff? :confused:

I think you should stab yourself until you are dead. :up:

It's all crap now, it's always the flavor of the month. The only good music is classic Rock and Metal.

Rap is not music,it's a joke, all they do is talk about what they own or who they'll kill, and they steal real musicians' music and put it in the background. They're all ex gang members. Look at lil Kim, and Biggie and Tu pac, dead or in jail, they're all scum.

And as for that whiny punk wannabe crap, I think that's kind of going away now.

It's a shame, it's all about money, not talent.

In a world with American Idol, it's all about who's next and can be in commercials etc.

Not all rap is gangsta rap.

Black Eyed Peas is actually pretty good. Well, now and then they obviously try to go with to much mainstream for money's sake. Shakira is good, Pussycatdolls is alright but sure do look stupid and slu**y. Madonna is an old hag and should hang up her cones before they start to hang down anymore.

I believe what you guys concieve as today's music scene is actually what is just in the mainstream and promoted and shoved into our face by corporate conglomerates who don't care about art but just money. If you guys want good music of whatever genre you will have to find it in independant music magazines and on the internet.

It didn't in the classic rock era.

There was plenty of tripe on the radio at that time as well. The truly good stuff is remembered, but there's a lot of junk from the 60's and 70's that NEVER gets played anymore because it was so bad.

All rap isn't bad. YOu just kinda have to sift through the crap to get to the gold...

Tupac was actually art in street form. May he rest in peace but art live on.
