Someone at Yahoo answers had this question: Why does music today suck?
21 years old, I love rock, jazz, old school hip hop, Frank Sinatra, Issac Hayes, AC/DC, The Beatles, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Run DMC, Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Ice Cube etc. I could go on, i’ll always love the rock music, because my Father played guitar for like 40 years “lol” and is obsessed with rock music, I basically grew up listening to that, and I had some family members introduce me to old school rap.
I cant stand music today, people can sneeze into the mic, and it could be a top 5 hit, sure there is good music, but I feel like you have to LOOK for it, back then it seemed like you didn’t, the good stuff was always on the radio. Now we gotta hear trash like these guys called young money talk about drugs and “hoes” with complete auto tune, its almost like you don’t need talent anymore, just be an idiot, disrespect women, and talk about anything, and you could be a millionaire with a hit single. Its just sad, I don’t get it, why do you have to look for good music, why is the trash music so popular?
My answer to this is simply this:
It’s your upbringing and conditioning that determines what aligns with your inner excitement and joy. Each type of music has it’s own audience.
What constitutes a good music over another is a subjective matter in itself. A rocker will hate ambient music, a person who loves to hear the waves certainly will not stand the fast rhythmic rock etc.
What you hear on the airwaves is really a controlled outlet, meaning that the people behind it put not what is popular but what they want to make popular. This has been one way of mass-controlling the psyche.
Look at it this way: If you’re not part of the herd then you are certainly outside the psyche controlled masses.
