I don't understand people that feel they should have been born in a different era. There are just as many crazy societal issues today. *** rights, the first black president, the advent of the internet, having the entire archive of all human knowledge at your fingertips, being able to store your entire music library in something no larger than a pack of cigarettes...all really crazy stuff to be living through if you ask me.

Plus...there are a ton of bands from the past 20 years that I love too much to be bothered to go back in time when they didn't exist. This is also a great time to be living for music, especially as a collector...as Urban said I can download and listen to anything I feel like in about 2 minutes.

I would've enjoyed being born about 10 years earlier. Today, I'll never be able to see my favourite band live...

you did a 180 on the correct interpretation

So you seriously feel that we currently live in a culture free of racism and sexism?

how awesome would it really be? ...
Well hey, not much has changed.

But anyway, I think it's irrational to say any past era was the best time for music for the simple reason that as of today, we have an amazing back catalog of musical history, including the 70s but also all the decades that followed, stuff I would miss out on had I been born earlier.

so you disagree that racism and sexism are no longer socially acceptable in most places in the U.S.?
or that the vietnam war is over?
which is what i said
you thought i was being sarcastic when i wasn't, and you also thought i was saying ALL war and racism had ended
which I wasn't

Well everything MrDave said applies to today, our generation also has unpopular wars and we are also in a recession, and while bigotry isn't as acceptable now as it was then, it's still around in large doses.

I was referring to the original post I responded to, the one that I thought was sarcastic. The one where you described racism and sexism using the word "eliminated". I guess that's where the confusion came in.

I get where you guys are coming from when you talk about all of the racism and stuff. But I think everything back then was much more real.
The music was unbelievable, you know, back when people had a passion for the sound and for what they did. Now it's all autotuned and you can only make it you have a stuffed wallet and a pretty face.
I'd do it for the music.

I feel like even if we lived it up in the eras we idolize, we would feel nostalgic for even earlier eras.
I hear popular songs from the 90s and they make me nostalgic. Maybe I heard them when I was a little kid. Anyone else get that?
