As the title says above, do you think that music is dead? I say yes because when I turn on the radio, all I hear is """artists""" such as katy perry, nicki minaj, bruno mars, etc, etc, with auto-tuned crap.
They put in words that rhyme with a auto-tuned voice and call that music... Like..no instruments, no actual singers, no nothing...

I hate this generation's music.

But I have some exceptions such as Coldplay, Nickelback, and Linkin Park.

Surprisingly I'm 13. Most people my age like those """artists.""" One time when I was at school, I was listening to "The Beatles" during lunch with one ear in.. My friend asked me what i was listening to and I said "Beatles." He just stared at me and everyone started laughing how I have a "bad taste in music" fml :/

You know very well you're not the only one. Don't use that as a ploy for attention.

Nirvana was alright, but not a godlike band just because a member died. That may sound harsh, but it's the ugly truth. Saosin, Anberlin, and Say Anything blow Nirvana out of the water.

If anything, quality is a legitimate reason to listen to "different" music. If I turn my car stereo on and encounter a song of poor quality, I will change the station. And yes, no one has the right to insult someone over their taste in music. I'm not the one insulting people over tastes. Refer to GG50's extreme generalization of people who like older music for an example of insults.

I don't want to read any of the other previous replies to see if anyone has said the same thing I am about to say because I am just mainly lazy.

When you say this "generation" of music you were mainly talking about what you had listed:
TheMrzombie2"""artists""" such as katy perry, nicki minaj, bruno mars, etc, etc, with auto-tuned crap.
They put in words that rhyme with a auto-tuned voice and call that music... Like..no instruments, no actual singers, no nothing...

but this generation's music are not confined to only what you had listed. There's other genres than pop that are great, but there are also some great pop songs that are great as well. You can not just say this generation's music is bad because you do not like the mainstream pop songs. Every genre has some mainstream songs or the more popular or well-known song at the time. Everyone has there taste in music and people should respect that and not have to force upon others to like their specific music interests.

errorknI think what that guy was trying to say Zach is that most people just say they like old music better because they want attention.


If that was his true purpose, then he should have stated as such. The post, to me, was more about attacking those who didn't agree with his idea of fine music with insults and implying all who listen to older generations of music are attention-seekers. A good majority of people who listen to old music do it for the quality of music, and to alienate that group of people is wrong.


Bam. That's the problem. That's not a legitimate reason to listen to "different" music. I agree with GG50 completely (never thought I'd say that in my life) in that just because you listen to older music doesn't mean you're better than those that listen to newer music, and you don't have the right to insult them as a person as well as their tastes.

So what if you listen to older music? So what if you listen to newer music? You're not better than anyone else based on your music choice. I love 1D, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Clarkson. I dislike the Beatles and the Rolling Stones among others. Now, does that mean that those who do like the Beatles and dislike 1D are bad people? No, it just means they're different.

Mainstream is mainstream for a reason. There is no "right" or "wrong" in music.

My favorite bands/musicians are Hall and Oates, Electric Light Orchestra, Stevie Wonder, Tears for Fears, etc. Pretty much all 70s and 80s play while I drive. I'll occasionally listen to 50s, 60s, and 90s but not as often. I don't bother with new music, as it just doesn't appeal to me after listening to my parent's music for so long.

Also, [yt]m6Jds2kfDsY[/yt] this was made this year and I wouldn't say it sucks.

To sum up, there is music that sucks in every generation and good music in every generation.

Dubstep etc. are only popular because they are mainstream. These days people go after mainstream things. ( Apple, and as I said these new music styles )

I don't really like that type of metal you posted ( Metalcore/Alternative Metal )
I don't like how the singer sings ( Shouting ), but I do like other type of metals, like Metallica

Metal, Rock etc. usually have good message in them, but this generation music has just stories of their bar and club life which is extremely annoying, and techno etc. doesn't have even singing in them.

Metallica's songs usually are about war and such and Muse has various messages, in creative way in their songs.

One of my favourite songs from Metallica: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPh_9sRJycI plus had to post another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg92QpjRcJk

One of my favourite songs from Muse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avM_UsVo0IA and another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8KQmps-Sog those two are my fav muse songs.

Muse is 00 band, so it's pretty new but they are still good. Muse plays Symphony Rock (Supremacy as example), alternative rock, rock and some other styles.
So Muse is rock Band.

Metallica is metal band.

It's funny you say that the band isn't like Metallica but it's the same genre. (Thrash)
But yeah I like death/thrash metal a bit more than others. Strangely I can't seem to like Metallica.....

(Not being that guy but just thought it was a funny coincidence you said that.

Metallica doesn't only play trash. And as far as I can see I never said "Isn't like metallica" I only said I don't like the shouting singing style, the instruments are good tho.

I enjoy both classical and modern music, nothing in between besides some metal. I generally only listen to electro/dubstep/glitch hop etc. Don't get mad at me just because of what I listen to, that's just being biased. I respect what you listen to, I may not listen to it or like it itself, but I respect it. I hope you (everyone) do the same for eachother. I just don't like most rappers (except for Dan Bull, ERB stuff like that.)

Goku, because some younger people like techno etc. Doesnt mean we can't like old music. Imo old music times were gold years for music. Everything was made with real instruments and it was fun to watch them playing the instruments on live.
I play bass myself and I think it's a lot better than sitting on computer and using programs to generate "music"
And I bet there is more than 1% people witg good taste. We would be doomed if we had only 1%.
Go ahead. Count every metal, rock, reggae, trash metal etc. Band's views on spotify or youtube and bring some actual facts.

It's shame how now everything goes to computers.. guitar legends are dying and it's hard to get new ones.

Only exception is that I like Muse. It's modern rock band, they do use actual instruments (Guitar, Bass, Piano and Drumms).

They need to learn to play instruments, not just remember which button makes which sound in some program.

Whilst some people may not like this genre of music(due to media mostly), I do indeed like rap despite the lyrics,( I'm in it for the tune/and/or beat of the song) and occasionally some dubstep as well. I wouldn't say I hate this generation's music, but most people just give stuff like the ones I listed above a bad time just because they think it's promoting bad stuff. And, of course some of it is, but that doesn't justify the fact some people will just generalize the entire genre due to what the kinda stuff the media has said about it, or what some of the public have claimed. All in all, I say this generation has some bad music, like most of generations, but also some good music too, depends on the way you look at it and what you kind of music you like.


Honestly, I have listened to dub step and rap. And it's not what they sing about that annoys me, although I would rather they didn't, it's honestly the tune and everything about it, I just don't like how it sounds.. I mean idk if Macklemore are classed as Rap but they are some of the few modern things I don't dislike.

EDIT: Also, I'm pretty sure that selfie song was just a joke due to the ongoing trend of 'selfies' that have consistently been continuing as part of that viral act. Of course it's bad music, but as it's a joke, I don't suggest anyone can really take that seriously.
Here's a quote I found whilst searching the interwebs on the wiki page, though I'm not too sure on how truthful it is, it was a quote from an interview they had taken:
'Honestly, "#Selfie" is kind of a phenomenon for us. We made it and thought it was funny and put it out as an edit. Then Dim Mak wanted to buy it, and they bought it from us and put it out officially and we made a video for it. This was all just because we thought it was fun.'
