True. I think the 60s and 70s had the best rock. Jefferson Airplane, The Yardbirds, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, Credence Clearwater Revival, Cream, The Steve Miller Band, The Animals, Moby Grape, The Who... (need I go on? Because I can). Mid-70s and 80s had the best (technical) metal and thrash metal (although Megadeath has been relatively consistent) and the mid-90s to early 2000s head the best alt rock (Hootie, Pearl Jam, RHCP, etc.) as well as the last good segment of punk rock, before s**t-tier pop bands completely poisoned and overthrew the genre, selling it out to the industry *puffs cigarette, adjusts eyebrow piercing*.
Metal went spiraling down the drain when the emo fad started rolling out crappy alt rock bands that the whiny brats in school called "metal", then "screamo" showed up. Metal became 700000 subgenres because the self-entitled emo kids had to create a new genre for every little group that rolled out crappy music and called it metal. Like what in the actual f**k is "spacecore" or "nintendocore? And have you heard "djent"? I don't have a problem with it, but let's not pretend like it's highly sophisticated instrumentally. They use no more than 5 frets per song. I think Opeth has made a few exceptions to that rule, and there are some slightly varied breakdowns in Meshuggah and Gojira, but that's about it.

As you can see, I could rant about this forever, so I'm gonna stop there.

This generation's music is crap. Point made. Valid meme.

It doesn't seem to matter which genre either. I'm a big rock fan but today's country sucks just as bad. All the songwriters share the same "hit outline". Originality is gone from music *almost* entirely.

That's true. I know who Kenny Rodgers, Conway Twitty, The Allman Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Buffalo Springfield, etc. are, and that's the standard I hold music labeled "country" to.

Nowadays (I say that like I'm old. I'm not.) the stuff I hear get called country is indistinguishable from pop rock, aside from the heavier American accents.

You're right, its almost as though with hip-hop, someone has decided there isn't room anymore for good rock and roll. Frustrated rockers have to change their lyrics to add "blue jeans, truck and beer" and call themselves country.

"This Is How We Roll" by *something something* Line[?] is all I need to say about modern "country" music. Pretty much sums it up.

Oh no, that's bad I give you that, but when some asshole tries to rap in a country song, I want to slap Nashville right off the map!

I just want The Who, Waylon Jennings, Skynard, Peter Gabriel, Don Williams, Hank Jr, Elvis and a few others to all be alive and young again. Is that really too much to ask?

last year i mixed a 4 song ep for a country rock band and it turned out pretty good. see it this way: 80% of the good music belongs to 20% of the artists, therefore 20% of the bad music belongs to 80% of the artists. some kind of equilibrium logic.

I won't say the artists aren't out there, but the industry is certainly not letting them be heard, at least in the traditional ways,

All the good bands and singers aren't mainstream. I just got turned on to a band called "Steam Powered Giraffe" and they are brilliant. And a few other bands and singers here and there most people know nothing about.

One of the best concerts I've ever seen was by an Icelandic band called Solstaffir. There was maybe 60 people in the crowd and it rocked f***ing hardcore. Check out their album Otta if you wish.

in terms of compositions most of today's music isn't all that great, but in terms of mixing techniques...10 years ago you couldn't make what some people are doing right now. but, then again, that's the technician working, not the musician xP

I agree. Literally every song nowadays is about sex, drugs, or alcohol. I may be young, but my favorite band is the Beatles, back when music was decent

1. Not every single song that's new is about those things, you silly goose.
2. They had songs about those things back then too.

I know, I know... but at least back then, the songs weren't so, for lack of a better word to describe it, graphic.

I'm young and you make say I'm wrong, but not all music is bad, especially rap. Logic, for example, a lot of his songs are inspirational to people young and old. This is because he was taught not to do when he was growing up. I hate when people think one part of a genre is shit it must mean all of it is bad.

I recommend post-rock and atmospheric sludge metal ("post-metal") for starters. Explosions in the Sky? Blew my mind.

My favorite song artist is DAGames. A lot of people on the internet would hate them at first because they started out with a FNAF 3 song called "It's Time to Die". But they've released many good songs that aren't just FNAF. They've done HuniePop, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Undertale, even Fallout 4. They have a unique take on music. They tend to have dark and gritty lyrics, but that just makes them even better. They even made a Christmas song called "The Spirit Divine", and I find it to be the best Christmas music compared to most, seeing as it can fall under the "rock" genre, and it just sounds better than most. My favorite song by them (thst isn't FNAF) is Atomic Renegade, a Fallout 4 song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAO3A0CElMA

There's also TryHardNinja. He's done a song on Sunset Overdrive, some Minecraft songs (which, admittedly, suck), and even a song about what real life would be like if it were like video games such as Super Mario. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOrKHU0VpS4

And there's also the artists over at NoCopyrightSounds, particularly Lensko and Alan Walker. NCS music tends to have mostly musical beeps, and I love how it's kinda like dubstep, but at the same time it's not.

My radio station plays mixed music (but it used to never play today's music until a couple of years ago... otherwise I had to put up with my parents blasting Elvis and/or singing along whenever he came on the radio ._.). I just hate it when they go from Culture Club or MJ (or any other good songs) to something like Katy Perry's Roar or that "I'm all about that bass" song like dude you just killed my vibe lol -.- Uptown Funk is a good song though, not gonna lie! But for me it's like the only good song out of today's "music" :/
