I get why people would end up only listening to newer music. At least if you're not really exploring much on your own. Then new music is what will be shoved in your face and what there will be built hype around. Only weirdos go and find music from way before their own time and place.

I'm a weirdo compared to most people, since one of the newest CDs I got in the mail was a compilation of songs by Finnish 60's pop singer Anki.

Your average person on the street will listen to stuff that you expect based on their age, I guess.

There are a lot of different ways to appreciate something as vast and diverse as music. Get off of your silly martyr soapbox.

Anyone who does not personally seek out The Police without being prompted by anyone else cannot call themselves a music fan.

I remember getting a radio as a child and being so ecstatic to be able to listen to so many different types of music, all at my fingertips.

I would also play my grandmother's old vinyl records and try to scratch them like a DJ, and subsequently get my ass in trouble LOL.

My first digital music player held 1 GB of music and cost over $100 USD.

I loved to use my PSP to listen to music, but those proprietary 'Memory Stick Pro Duo' memory cards [or whatever the f*ck they were called] were hella expensive. I worked in the electronics department at Walmart, so I was able to steal one. Go me. I still mourn the death of my PSP

I had a 32 GB Zune back in the day. I loved it, just wasn't keen on the software that I had to use to load media on to it.

Music has no inherent value, we have to be convinced it is good. There are no gatekeepers as there were in the old days to tell us what is good. No Dj's breaking new artists no american bandstand no MTV. There is great stuff out there - probably more than ever before but how do you find it? IT costs so much more for a label to promote something these days with hardly any record sales they have to go for lowest common denominator dribble. Where are you guys finding todays great music, I know its out there

I dont know how to explain this.... I'm a country rocker in a working band... firmly rooted in and influenced by older styles of music...

but for some reason I really like a lot of EDM. Shpongle, Crystal Method, Chemical Bros, The Books, Tycho, all kinds.

I even try to make some of it myself - I suck at it and it makes me laugh when my other musician friends mock EDM by saying its just some idiot in mouse mask pushing buttons on a laptop. Um, no, not so much... its quite involved, if you want to be really good at it.

from my experience anyway.... just my opinion.

Music is truly universal,young or old there is something that will move you musically,I'm about as old school as you're gonna get here I bet,but I love music which means that I don't close my mind totally to today's artist..heck I even like some-Justin Beiber..Bruno Mars,good music is good music and once in awhile some of these youngsters will come through with a groove to make me say-COOL!!
