They aren't relevant when put against Burning Down's initial question in the OP.

This isn't about the definition of what relevancy it.

This entire discussion is supposed to be based off of mainstream radio.

Dude. It is ****ing not. You keep telling people to read and understand the OP but you really ought to take your own advice. "Today's music"=\=exclusively mainstream radio. Get it through your head.

She gave examples of what she meant by Today's music.

today's music (pop, rock, metal, electronica, etc)
It might not mean exclusively mainstream radio but it definitely means what's considered popular so why not go off of mainstream radio/billboard charts?

Is there any metal on the top 40 right now?

If you actually read your post right here and the one you quoted, you'll notice how you were the one bringing in the whole mainstream bit. Read the OP, answer the question right.

Classical music is eternal. Not only it is the embodiment of a time-tested harmony, but what would evil scientist listen to in the movies, if not to classical violin music ?

Burning Down is around lurking. She needs to come back to her thread and clarify what she means.

I don't fully understand the premise of this thread. Classical music is timeless and perhaps the most relevant genre since most modern musicians have studied classical to some extent or other. Even my husband (who pretty much exclusively listens to mainstream music), is a huge classical enthusiast and is constantly playing Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and Holtz.

So this is basically the question she wanted answered. I don't think the thread title does that question justice. Most people just look at the thread title and respond based off of that.

The second part of her question covers the category that your husband would fit into.

I don't see how he would fit into that category of niche listeners seeing as how I described his musical habits as pretty mainstream. I think that even the most basic listener today has been exposed (perhaps indirectly and without personal intent) and thereby somewhat affected by classical music seeing as how it's found embedded in modern pop culture everywhere (ie: dramatizing cat-n-mouse scenes in familiar cartoons, in the background of most car commercials, etc). To say it isn't relevant to the modern person would pretty much mean that that person has been living under a rock without internet access for his entire existence.

^Who is "he"? Your husband?

The Internet is the biggest element of DJ and my disagreement. It's changed the way that people consume music and has in turn made niche genres more relevant than they ever would be. 30 years ago, the charts would be a good indicator of that time's music and I'd agree with DJ on that because of how much the radio drove the music culture of the time. I just think it's changed, become more fragmented, and we can look beyond the charts and still maintain a relevant idea of what people listen to these days.
