What are your thoughts on the current generation of music?

I think its pretty much all crap. I do like a few of the Alt rock songs/bands that have come out recently (rise against, cage the elephant, etc. Idc if these are really alt rock bands, but you get the idea),but other than that i wont touch anytbing that hasnt come out after '98

    I think there is a lot of good stuff out there you just have to sort through the shit. I bet every generation is like that; in a couple of years no one will remember the shit and all your left with is a good impression of that generation.

    And I get the odd feeling you like Daft Punk lol

    you are a wise man. there is a reason people love older music. they only remember the good stuff and forget all the bad.
    - johnecash January 3, 2011, 1:03 pm
    Because Daft Punk is the good stuff.

    I like it, just because it's "feel good" music, you know? Party music. That's what everyone wants, with the economy the way it is. But then again, it's not real music. just a good beat and a LOT of editing.

    Thats whats up!

    I like the new korn album. But the current generation of music i mean i dont know. YOu got faggy justin beaver and fucking will smith's son doing a song bout twirling ur hair or someshit. Miley cyrus doing her texas songs while smoking salvia. THe new generations messed up yo. I like the real songs. System of a down, biggie smalls, gotta respect michael jackson. YOu know?

    BTW checked out that band Cage the Elephant and really liked it thanks!

    I mostly stick to '90s music but I do like some of the new alternitive rock songs. Pheonix, 30 Seconds to Mars, Mumford and Sons, Cage the Elephant, and the Black Keys. There are a few others but I can't remember them right now.
    Other then those bands I want to kill this generations music I can't stand the way they remix there voices. Alot of them don't sound like there useing real drums, it just doesn't sound right.
    The country music makes me want to smash my head into the wall intill I knock myself unconscious expetialy that Tallor Swift or however you spell her name, I don't really care. The only contry I like is songs like sweet home alabama and the devil went down to gorgia. That Tallor chick is not even close to that style of country she's actually the opposite, she's the type that shouldn't make music.
    Don't get me started on the rap there's no fixing that.
    Oh! I almost forgot I like bagpipe music too.

    I AGREE!
    my mother plays country 24/7 and i just want to kill sound with fire, even though thats pretty much impossible.
    - cary139 January 1, 2011, 9:41 pm
    I've tried to kill it with fire, It works okay but then I have to pay for the dead radio. I was with my dad and his family all week and apparently all they can hear up there is country, rap, and disney or they will implode from the sound of real music. It is kinda funny when I go to michagain to see him though becuse they all think they live in the country and they also think I have a southern accent.
    - ember January 1, 2011, 9:50 pm
    Yeah, sweet home Alabama isn't country it's southern rock. but i'll give you Devil went down to Georgia

    there are many country legends that influence musicians even today.
    - johnecash January 3, 2011, 1:28 pm
    here are just a few of the greats;
    the gamber
    a boy named sue
    country boy can survive
    anything by "the snowman"
    anything by willy nelson
    anything by mearl the pearl haggard.
    and if you want more let me know, this list could go on for days. remember just because you have not heard much country that is good, it does not mean its not out there.

    I beleive you responded to the wrong guy

    my bad, don't get stoned and post.
    - johnecash January 3, 2011, 2:50 pm
    dont worry bout it.
    - DarkicoN13 January 3, 2011, 5:14 pm
    johne, not a brooks and dunn fan? you just reminded me of the song johnny cash junkie.

    "I still drive a pickup, I still wear boots
    I grew up country, I’m proud of my roots
    Red, white and blue are the colors I bleed
    I’m a Johnny Cash junkie and a Buck Owens freak"

    what about alan jackson, waylon jennings, george straight, david allan coe, hank williams, patsy cline, nitty gritty dirt band (diamond rio), garth brooks, jimmy buffet, conway twittie, statler brothers, george jones, charlie daniels...

    the great thing about country, is theres still good country artists today, making great music. even if pop infiltrated the country market with stuff like rascal flatts and taylor switft... the country fans still know what is country and what is not.

    thank God for the grand ole opry....
    - c8r15 January 4, 2011, 4:39 am
    as i said the list goes on and on. get drunk under the stars with a good burbon and campfire. its called country for a reason. david allan coe while a racist bastard is funny as hell. nothing like a good country song.

    My opinion of the majority of mainstream music is that it is crap. Notice I said the majority, I do like some of it, but not a lot. I feel it doesn't have the emotion/soul (I can't think of better words) behind it compared to what I normally listen to so if feels like a hollow shell destined to rape your ears, stick in your head and annoy the s*** out of you til you put in your earphones. This is all coming from someone who listens to a lot of genres (rock, metal, country, classics, classical, alternative, some electronica and rap ect. although I cant stand pop for previously stated reasons.) I'm very open minded and respectful (unless I'm joking with friends) when it comes to music but I only listen to what I like and am not afraid of new stuff (example, I just heard dubstep for the first time a while ago, love the stuff.)
    Recap: Alot is crap IMO but whatevs, listen to what you like and don't be afraid of new stuff.

    Also, don't get bent out of shape if I insulted your music because this is "MY" opinion

    I have to say, a couple of years ago I would have said no to anything that wasn't punk or rock music, but since I've been driving I listen to more radio and it's helped me become more open to different types of music. I mean recently I've enjoyed listening to a guy called Tinie Tempah, yeah it's not rock or anything like that, but I like it.. It'll never replace my love for bands such as Rise Against (I really do have quite an unhealthy love for them) but I like listening to other things on the radio, because I don't get bored with a certain genre which was what was happening.

    All modern 'pop' is pure filth, there's bits and pieces from other genres that are good though. But since pop dominates because of tasteless retards, overall the current generation of music is crap.

    classic rock FTW. i'm not much into Rap/Hip-Hop because its mostly synthesized or edited/remixed. some bands out there are good even for this generation(not sure when demon hunter came out) rise against is one of my favorites.

  • 1

    Well, there may not be as much choice as there was twenty years ago but there are some quality bands bringing out new records. like foo fighters, Red hot chilli peppers, kasabian, muse, them crooked vultures, kings of leon. And I would say that most of these could be classed as mainstream (I'm in England btw).

    And I know that there is a lot of crap hip hop/R&B shit going around but hey, if you're a real music lover then you should know to ignore the crap stuff and help advertise the good stuff.

    Since the introduction and popularisation of electronically produced beats and that thing that auto-tone's peoples' voices, making pop music has become too easy and, as a result, mostly utter shit. There have been one or two songs I can think of since this popularisation that don't utilise it and actually produce interesting and good music. If I thought about it, I could probably think of a crappy electronically made song that I don't mind.

    My point is that the standard has significantly dropped because of the developments, and the musicians previous to them are the REAL musicians, who sit down and think hard about what to write as a song, and through effort, produce good music.

    Led Zeppelin are gods, R.I.P. John Bonham.

    Sucks, so much. i feel as if i was born in the wrong time of music. But it is of no matter at all i still listen to the good stuff like, CCR, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, and Metallica ( the older stuff)

    Kill it With Fire Aliens

    It's all mainstream crap to me. t.A.T.u's probably the best pop/rock band there ever was. Another reason why I listen to a lot of Screamo bands.

    listen to this song. I honestly doubt anyone on here has heard of them.

    classic rock will never die. as long as people continue to listen to bands like zep,the stones,floyd,metallica, etc etc,and pass on the torch,the flames of classic rock will continue to burn.in a way, i kinda feel sorry for this generation coming up, because they will never know what its like to completely trip balls and listen to floyd turned up to 11 on the stereo...or be stoned off your ass and rock out with jimi hendrix......but i guess the point im trying to make is todays music is not that great because we have already seen and heard the best music there ever will be on the face of the planet,and nothing imo can top classic rock of the 60s 70s 80s.

    .....fuckin' rock and roll man.....

    btw-if you havent seen the movie "pirate radio" go do yourself and favor and watch it. epic win
