    A Stagnation In Current Music

    Usually, there is a musical genre or 2 that define each decade (60's psychedelic, 70's hard rock & ugh...disco, 80's new wave & metal/hardcore/punk, and the 90's alternative), yet I've noticed nothing noteworthy to define the 00's besides whiny "indie" bands, emo and more...

    Today's Mainstream Music

    I am very disappointed in today's mainstream music. Much of it is fake and overly processed.

    Me Too.

    I'm really tired of Gangsta Rap. Same thing goes with off-key singing, which apparently started with Mary J. Blige, and spread like wildfire. It makes my ears wince, if that's possible. I love a lot of other music, from classical to classic rock, to jazz, especially modern...

    Tried to watch the grammys

    but couldn't even stand it. Modern pop music is just a product, emotion or variation with anything.

    Must of Been Born In the Wrong Decade

    The music I listen to is all from my parents generation. I love acts such as the Rolling Stones, The Faces, Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, Deep Purple and early Alice Cooper. There are no rock stars anymore. Just a bunch of charisma free nobodies. My parents always tell that music...

    Most of It

    Seems like the same old bands still making the same old music. Have you noticed the kids nowadays are listening to music by old bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zep? That has to tell us something. Well can't stop, I'm off to form another Rolling Stones tribute band. See ya later...

    The Rap Music Being Created Today Is A Disappointment

    I was recently listening to rap music from the 80's and 90's and they were really good, in terms of lyrics, tune, beat and bunch of other stuff. But the rap music being played today is horrible, it seems as though all these rappers can rap about is sex and the mistreatment of...

    I try to appreciate all types of music

    and I'm not one of those people who will bash anyone's music taste because everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I'm pretty open minded. But sometimes it really irritates me that there's so much awesome music that nobody has ever even heard of while artists like Miley...

    Pleasent And Relaxing Music And Languages!

    I like many and varied styles of music but I can't tolerate much of today's material! It's interesting to note that at a loud rock concert, if you were to place a fresh egg against the speakers for approx half the duration of the concert, you would discover that the egg would...
