Why modern music is terrible.
I am a strong believer that todays pop music is absolute garbage and turns girls into whores and guys into pricks. If you have not noticed yet, all the music sounds the same. the one two three four bass beat the autotune voices that hide the fake talent, obscene lyrics that make no sense , and the fact that these people do not even write their own songs is just disgusting.
so flash back… everybody hated disco music….. the music now is just disturbing offending disco…
rock and roll, metal, any thing that will bring real bands back into play. forget all the synthesizer shit, bring back the guitar a singer a bassist and a drummer and music will be restored and happy. modern music makes people lazy because its all computer generated and takes absolutely no skill at all.
It is time to stop being lazy and get up learn how to play an instrument. Use the talents you have and bring back talent to music.

You guys have clearly never been to a Folk music festival. There is so much joy and fun there. Folk music has a wide range and it is sometimes pretty rocking.
@spaceman5150, Come on man, it’s right that a lot of today’s music is garbage. but at the same time when it comes to music, I believe that every genre get it’s golden age and it deteriorates after that, you just gotta figure which genre has it’s golden age going on right now, it’s definitely not pop, for me though, it’s hip-hop and independent music
they all have talent, i just feel like pop music is used in a negative fashion.
i do not like rap, but lil wayne is my favorite rapper just because of the vivid pictures and the way with words, but his type of music, i feel, is to obscene to be blasting but better to listen to privately.
im just a huge fan of guitars and i do not want to see them disappear. i like that good ol electric guitar and amp and no fancy other stuff.
Yes, Disco is awesome.
It usually takes me about 10 years to warm up to music these days. In the 80′s and 90′s I loved all the current stuff and kept up as it came out. I have a 21 year old brother who is into a lot of new stuff, mostly rock, indie and punk, and I have a 15 year old sister who is into all that pop. But I hated the naughties, but now I like a lot of it. In 10 years I may like some of the junk from now. The last song I liked was Lonely boy, but the thing is there is still a lot of old stuff I can explore, probably enough for the rest of my life so I don’t have to waste time with this modern stuff.
Another thing is I’m a huge 80′s fan so don’t dis synthesizers :)
I think you’re forgetting about the skill and knowledge of sound it actually takes to produce these things. There is no shortage of new artists in almost any genre, so why hate on modern music? The best thing to do is when you hear a song you don’t like is to just turn it off. Music is music, even if I don’t like the genre.
They say that when we listen to music, our heart beats slowly harmonize with the tempo of the song and our bodies react as if it is gradually accepting it as apart of itself. Very ancient cultures around the world held the power of music as one of the most powerful forces of humanity, attributing it to harmonizing with the natural and spiritual world in its power. Music creates who we are on a highly spiritual level. To listen to this modern ” Pseudo-music”, with its constant repetition and sometimes extremely negative messages, seems to give strong offence to such a beautiful and universal language.
All music is creative and extraordinary in its own way, and many of you are right to say that musical taste is subjective, but today’s music that so many see as being “just harmless, catchy beats” is subtly writing the future of its listeners and the world day by day.
First of all music deliver ideas deep into your subconscious mind. Through music, people with jerk and whore attitude influence the personality of the people who listen to them.
Music relaxes your brain and make it vulnerable from ideas, and this ideas grow into parts of your personality. Inception movie is a perfect example to explain this theory.
Your musical knowledge clearly is very limited. There is a lot of fucking awesome music out there, you just have to put effort in finding it.
I agree though that what you hear on the pop radio stations and music that is called ‘pop’ music nowadays, is not really creative, only made for commercial purposes.
But yeah, everybody his own taste right? I got a shitload of music that will give you goosebumps and let every cell of your body jump around like house of pain intended you to by their nr1 hit.
@spaceman5150, I don’t know. I barely ever listen to it anymore, but I don’t like what I hear. It sounds either annoying, repetitive, or too electronic. But my parents and grandparents hated my music, too. Therefore, I just ignore the newer music. Occasionally I hear something like from a soundtrack to a movie, that sounds good, but I don’t think it is popular music. I do get pretty tired of the sexual divas (I call them pop tarts). They all talk about how their sexuality is “empowering” but I just think they’re using their bodies to make money. One thing I HAVE noticed is that a woman singer has to be beautiful to be popular now, mostly because of videos. Janis Joplin and Janis Ian would have had to get reconstructive surgery and boob jobs.
@7dabs, Maybe so, but UK Garage is an offshoot off house which is an offshoot of disco, and there’s fuck all ‘dub’ in dubstep. Did you know dubstep was initially called Croydon Techno? It’s just a fucking word that everyone thought sounded cool.
many argue that todays pop music is created for economic purposes, rather than artisitc purposes. It is the effect of a consumerist based economy. Artist live because they sell their music, not because people like it, and music that sells is that that appeals to the larger public. The public of today parties, and in parties they play the same music because people like to dance to one same rythm because thats all they know. That is why artists like Pitbul makes so much money.
@spaceman5150, it has to do with how the music is being marketed. lowest common denominator means selling to those who have no taste. It’s not the synthesizers fault. An artist can make music with a stick, a rubber band, or a tin can. It’s the artist, not the tools, and in this case the artists are just not very good. or if they are, they are signed to do what people tell them, and that is calculated music that people know other people will think sounds like something that might be cool somewhere (meaning garbage)
I make a very different music if you don’t mind the plug: http://soundcloud.com/healing-chime-audio
@spaceman5150, P.S. Not everyone hated disco and not all disco was bad (in fact, some was better than what I hear on top 10 now). I wasn’t a real fan of it, but I have to add that someone like Donna Summer worked with some pretty fantastic musicians.
