With the internet around there is no excuse for not being able to look
Why should you have too look to such non mainstream sources to hear good modern music, just for the sake of saying that it is new? It used to be that good music hit the top of the charts becuase it was in fact good music, and it was played on the radio, tv, and their albums could be found easily. Do you think people raided independant record shops and listened to some underground college radio station to hear money or whole lotta love? If it truly is good music, it will emerge to the top.

see this is where kashmir starts making a fair bit of sense, apart from that last sentence, society doesnt know ****, good music these days is stuff like the black ewyed peas to most. its not so much about talent now, theres no thought behind it, whatevers catchy or has boobies in the vidio generally is gonna make it better than a bunch of fat arses even if they're fantastic.

That is exactly how I feel about modern music, whatever is catchy and simplistic makes ti to the top. You probably didnt walk around in the 70's hearing people sing the lyrics to pink floyd songs or no quarter or somethin like that, because they lyrics weren't everything, it was about the music. Alot of songs didnt even have a chorus, imagine that. Nowadays, especially when it comes to rap it is just whatever has the catchiest beat or lyrics that becomes popular.

See you'd think that wouldn't you. But the world is populated by ****brained chavs who'd rather wear burberry and listen to mundane RnB with "I take drugs cus I'm a gangsta" lyrics. So you can't expect good music to be in the charts. Not least because nowadays good music is sold in Albums. Just because you have to look at the band name before you buy the CD, doesn't mean good music is no longer in production.

I dont agree with those who think that music is getting worse.
There is good and bad music in every decade.
Every genre of music has bands that bring to the genre, and others that take away.
Modern music is no different.
If you think that all new music sucks, then you arent looking hard enough to find good music.
Of course, if all you do is listen to your local Top 40 station, you are going to hear a ton of ****ty, piss poor grunge imitations.
But try to find good music.
There are tons of bands out today that put out quality music.
The Postal Service
System of A Down
Death Cab
Islands
Bright Eyes
The White Stripes.....
Just look for it and you will find it

doesn't really bother me much as much as it used to.. i still like a lot of the new music being made.. i still miss old rock music tho.. not that i'm old enough to have been around it as it ws being made or anything.. but i grew up listening to it as if it was... but i like emo punk.. and indie rock.. most of it is pretty good stuff.. into alot of bands i never would of thought i'd be into.
i'm not a fan of rap.. that a few of you know.. but i can understand why it has such a big following in the US and Canada... i think!
