Weeping For This Generation

It's a brave new world! Explore it!

I (, ?, for my generation.
Music has never been more varied or available than
it is today, and youve relying on pop radio; the
ultimate dilution of basilmarket culture.
There is some much more in this supposedly
culturally dead decade. You just have to look for it.

Imagine all the cool music you could dind it you put in more time from being as sick of mainstream

Finally someone said it. I really hate those people who say all music today is **** just because of a couple of bad artists. They also pretend they like old groups just to seem mature.

Sadly the reason I weep for my generation, is that we have awesome artists and music, but people are more interested degrading the ****** music instead of promoting the good music....

I've got to hand it to you, that was some of the truest 						****					 I've ever read on here; a whole lot of it has needed to be said for a long goddamn time. Thumbed and favorited.   
   
There's something I do want to clarify, though. I've done my share of ranting about modern pop culture, and what really bothers me about it is what it says about our society. It bothers me to see so many people who will actually get in cat-fights over meaningless pop fluff as if it were their newborn child. It bothers me that people have come to view fame as the end in itself, and that being in it for art's sake is treated like a form of pretentiousness - I mean, there are circles where simply saying what you said would get you dismissed as a "hipster" (as if most of these people really understand what a hipster is, or how much harm that whole movement has done to the independent arts scene, but that's a story for another day).   
   
And to the people who say, "Oh, but there's been bad popular music in every generation, yadda yadda..." That's true, but be honest with yourself, it's never been as bad as it is now. If you actually listen to something like, say, the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" - it's cheesy as 						****					, yes, but it actually takes a mature attitude toward love, especially compared to your average Miley Cyrus "you're my soulmate because you wear cool jeans" load of drivel. And people used to have their 						****					 at least somewhat in perspective, too: I may just be in a nostalgia haze or whatever the hell, but when I was a teenager, I don't remember my peers declaring the Backstreet Boys "amazing inspirations" and "way greater musicians than [insert legendary/influential band here]", or lauding MC Hammer as "deep" or "a poet" the way they've lauded Lil Wayne; and it would have been unheard of for some flash-in-the-pan like Aaron Carter to be handed a 3D movie blockbuster about his life story. As crazy as people might have gotten over it, at the end of the day, cheesy fun was cheesy fun.

I hate it when people say "I'm sorry for what my generation has done to music" and **** like that...
It makes them sound like such snobs.

I'm probably going to get thumbed down for this but, I've seen these kinda post 1,000 times before and it's always the same. You take a band like The ******* Beatles, and compare them to Rebecca Black or some other dumb bitch YouTube viral video star. Of course it's going to be **** compared to The Beatles. There are still plenty of great bands out there that have quite a list of songs with lyrically meaning, (Green Day, Linkin Park, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, etc.). The 60's,70's,80's had their **** bands too, you don't remember them because they died out of everyone's memory, just like this generation's of **** music will..Legends only live forever.

When people complain about "losing faith in humanity" because they don't like today's music, I lose faith in humanity.

There actually is some damn good metal out there these days. My personal motto when searching for it? "Don't listen to anything where the genre has the last word of 'core'."

Well, think of it this way. Do you have any idea what the phrase "Pop music" mean's? It's short for popular music. When we say "Oh god the music of today sucks" we of course mean Popular music. We don't actually mean this generation is dead, just it's pop music. And if you think pop music was never good, The Beatles was pop music in the 60's.

The last ten artists I listened to were; Fatboy Slim, Florence and the Machine, Little Mix (Don't judge me), Example, Fun, Feed Me, Daft Punk, Foster The People, Hopsin and Devlin. Not that anyone really cares I just felt like sharing.

SPOTIFY! That programme is ******* great, not sure it's available in the US though.


Basically it's almost ALL music, legally, for free. You can easily share music with friends or via Facebook and there's a bunch of apps that can guide you to new musicians.

Definetly worth checking out.

Thank god instead of complaining, someone finally just said "Well, there are other options out there,".
