I (, ?, for my generation.
Music has never been more varied or available than
it is today, and youve relying on pop radio; the
ultimate dilution of basilmarket culture.
There is some much more in this supposedly
culturally dead decade. You just have to look for it.

Finally someone said it. I really hate those people who say all music today is **** just because of a couple of bad artists. They also pretend they like old groups just to seem mature.

Because he's trying to point out good music.

Sadly the reason I weep for my generation, is that we have awesome artists and music, but people are more interested degrading the ****** music instead of promoting the good music....

I've got to hand it to you, that was some of the truest 						****					 I've ever read on here; a whole lot of it has needed to be said for a long goddamn time. Thumbed and favorited.   
   
There's something I do want to clarify, though. I've done my share of ranting about modern pop culture, and what really bothers me about it is what it says about our society. It bothers me to see so many people who will actually get in cat-fights over meaningless pop fluff as if it were their newborn child. It bothers me that people have come to view fame as the end in itself, and that being in it for art's sake is treated like a form of pretentiousness - I mean, there are circles where simply saying what you said would get you dismissed as a "hipster" (as if most of these people really understand what a hipster is, or how much harm that whole movement has done to the independent arts scene, but that's a story for another day).   
   
And to the people who say, "Oh, but there's been bad popular music in every generation, yadda yadda..." That's true, but be honest with yourself, it's never been as bad as it is now. If you actually listen to something like, say, the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" - it's cheesy as 						****					, yes, but it actually takes a mature attitude toward love, especially compared to your average Miley Cyrus "you're my soulmate because you wear cool jeans" load of drivel. And people used to have their 						****					 at least somewhat in perspective, too: I may just be in a nostalgia haze or whatever the hell, but when I was a teenager, I don't remember my peers declaring the Backstreet Boys "amazing inspirations" and "way greater musicians than [insert legendary/influential band here]", or lauding MC Hammer as "deep" or "a poet" the way they've lauded Lil Wayne; and it would have been unheard of for some flash-in-the-pan like Aaron Carter to be handed a 3D movie blockbuster about his life story. As crazy as people might have gotten over it, at the end of the day, cheesy fun was cheesy fun.

I hate it when people say "I'm sorry for what my generation has done to music" and **** like that...
It makes them sound like such snobs.

I'm 14. And i am really ashamed of my generation. Mainly based on the music. Sorry bout that.

Wow, I don't know why but I ******* hate it when kids 13-14ish are all like "I hate my generation, I'm sorry." First of all, there's nothing to be sorry about... you didn't do anything. Stop trying to sound mature and grown up to be accepted by older audiences. To me, it makes you sound like a ******* douchebag wannabe.

But, nothing against you. I'm just saying. No hard feelings≥

I'm probably going to get thumbed down for this but, I've seen these kinda post 1,000 times before and it's always the same. You take a band like The ******* Beatles, and compare them to Rebecca Black or some other dumb bitch YouTube viral video star. Of course it's going to be **** compared to The Beatles. There are still plenty of great bands out there that have quite a list of songs with lyrically meaning, (Green Day, Linkin Park, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, etc.). The 60's,70's,80's had their **** bands too, you don't remember them because they died out of everyone's memory, just like this generation's of **** music will..Legends only live forever.

When people complain about "losing faith in humanity" because they don't like today's music, I lose faith in humanity.

There actually is some damn good metal out there these days. My personal motto when searching for it? "Don't listen to anything where the genre has the last word of 'core'."
