Subject: What happened to music of today?

Written By: Creeder on 08/25/11 at 4:39 am

You know what I mean... it all sounds overproduced and bland.
Music meant something in the past. People listened to music that was actually good and stayed to this day as evergreen and retro.
Just 20 years ago, in 1991, such great albums were released: Nirvana's "Nevermind", Metallica's "Black album", Pearl Jam's "Ten", Guns N' Roses "Use Your Illusion I-II", R.E.M.'s "Out of Time", U2's "Achtung Baby", Mariah Carey "Mariah Carey", Red Hot Chili Peppers "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", Michael Jackson's "Dangerous".
And don't get me started on the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Please tell me a 2010s album that will be as big as Michael Jackson's "Thriller". You can't.
I honestly can't thing of an album (from a new performer) that I will remember 20-30 years from now.
Our generation is left in a dark age and there is no hope for getting out soon.

I agree.

A lot of people rather seem to hear unnatural, enhanced voices than 'the real thing'. Sad.  :\'(

And radio formats have become strict in a way there's almost no room anymore for something standing out; They are afraid of listeners going away...

But when it comes to less popular music, there's still some nice stuff. You just have to dig deeper nowadays. :)

Some of today's artists are good but I like the music I grew up with in the mid '90s to mid 2000s better. Not that that was the best necessarily, but it's the best I was around for. The truth is bad music has always been around, but it's the truly great music that's been declining in numbers over the years. I mean a lot of early '90s pop music was pretty freaking terrible really, but there was more GREAT stuff then like the albums you mentioned and as I said I even think 2004 had more great stuff than today. I kinda feel like I saw the last decent music era and I feel bad for today's kids / teens, though every generation feels like that I guess.

A lot of the artists from yesteryear with music artists like Michael Jackson,Barry White,Teddy Pendergrass,Lou Rawls and others are either deceased or retired from the music business,that's the music I used to enjoy but the music of today is ok just not as great as it once was back then.

What happened? Record companies just stopped caring. At least they had $$$ as a motivation, even back then, but now they're so stupid and greedy, and lazy they can't even think to make a good record anymore!

Me too (ánd broadcasting it by myself; one of the stations in my signature plays 100 % music released before 2010 and the other one for about 80 %).

Some stations are still playing decent recent music though, although combined with older music, check:
http://www.laid-back.be (black music)
http://www.novaplanet.com (relaxed/funky)
http://www.paris-one.com/reverse (techno, techhouse, electro)
And the stations FG House Chic and Underground FG at http://www.radiofg.com

And there's also http://www.kxredhot.nl, a Dutch station ONLY playing recent music. Not exactly my taste, but not bad, and maybe interesting for others.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 REALLY killed creativity and thus that's why a few years after 1996, music started to become saturated and uncreative!

Nice clip, but I don't agree with some of it.
It says that late 90s-early 00s music was bad, but it was very good back then. It started to suck in the mid-2000s and after.
Anyway, lets be optimistic about it. Here are some bands/singers from nowadays that I think are good: Bruno Mars, Foster the People, Owl City, Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, B.O.B, Katy Perry (good pop) and Taylor Swift

I really thought about that to. I can't stand todays music. Record companies just don't give a damn anymore. The industry sold itself out a long time ago. Anybody can get a record deal  these days.

Rock declined after 2003-2004. Some people say we're at the end of the "Rock era" and we are entering the "Digital era" where people listen what they want on the internet and don't give a damn about popular music.
Still that doesn't answer what current artists we are gonna listen after 30 years from today. :-\\

I'm a sophomore in college.  Trust me, you'll hardly find any of today's "good" music on the radio. 
Many radio stations and record execs have become too conservative and afraid of change.  Or they just don't "get" the music any more.  They certainly are not speaking for today's youth, at least not those that I know.  Very few of my peers listen to or respect the majority of what's played on the radio.

It's all underground and under the radar for most people (circulating on the internet actually).  The indie/lo-fi scene is pretty much where all the action is right now, and it exists online these days, rather than as a cohesive regional unit as music scenes tended to be in the past (i.e. grunge & seattle, britpop & the UK). 

MTV is currently attempting to break into this market and exploit its aesthetic.  Expect it to be massively co-opted, watered down and sold as fashion trends and lifestyles, akin to the whole "alternative rock explosion" 20 years ago.

some examples:

Most people under 25 regard Nickelback as a joke these days; they think they're awful.  The Foo Fighters are still pretty decent at times but I do like their older albums better.  Linkin Park is simply overplayed.  They're not awful, but they're not what anyone wants to hear anymore.  Granted I don't speak for everyone in my age group.

Foster the People are great btw, as are MGMT.  There's a definitely a broad psychedelic influence coming into music that wasn't present before.

So the smoothing over of music decreases it's "character", on a personal level I agree with this. It is more interesting to me when music is a little off, out of tune slightly, it makes music sound more quirky and whimsical which I like.

ugh! perfect example of what i mean! (though somehow, it was still pretty easy to watch.  ;D ) the thing i think of is this slogan from the 50s, and it actually i think was about grocery store food and so on, "untouched by human hands." they would put that on food and other products to tell you that it had been made strictly by an automated process on an assembly line and no actual human worker had gotten their cooties on your hot dog or your children's toy or what have you. and i don't know how that went over in the 50s but i remember when i was a kid in the 70s we used to laugh at that idea, because a product with absolutely no relationship to humanity was a BAD thing, it ended up antiseptic and joyless and basically too refined and perfect to be enjoyed.

i don't think we're there with movies yet, there are still good movies being made, but they're tryin', man. with music, i've basically given up. i've just gone back to the 70s buttrock with the messy playing and weird marshall stack tones and overamped 20-something dirtbag musicians screwing it up half the time, because i've realized that's what i love. the last rock bands i've actually liked, outside of metal, which kinda runs on its own track, are radiohead and system of a down, red hots, foo fighters, and that was a LONG time ago. the future of small combo music is probably in crossover jazz, there are some people doing great work in that. medeski martin and wood has been playing magnificent jam-band style stuff for years, for instance, and are on track to become legends if you ask me.

Who cares about today's music? As long as we have the Internet, we can listen to anything we want. Sure it would be great if we could turn on the radio and hear something decent, but it's not like we're stuck with what's popular. But despite all this, people my age still listen to whatever is playing in clubs. *sigh* OH WELL!

Now excuse me as I listen to one of my favorite songs NOT from 2009-2011 :P

Yeah, all that is true.
But you see its great when you actually experience a trend when its in its peak.
I would have loved to be around in the 80s hair metal or 90s grunge years.
Now there isn't anything decend to follow. :(

well there's a new wave of rappers (Wiz Khalifa,Mac Miller,Nicki Minaj,) old bands releasing new material (Red Hot Chili Peppers,Foo Fighters,Blink 182,Primus,Inucbus)  Metal is just great at the moment (Suicide Silence,Dream Theater,Children Of Bodom,Opeth,Chelsea Grin,Job For a Cowboy,The Black Dalhia Murder,Amon Amarth.)

2011 to most people means Rebecca Black,Justin Bieber and all that s*** but 2011 to me was a great year for music.
