Does contemporary popular/mainstream music mostly suck?
 
I've noticed that most cafes play music from the 90s or maybe before.

Edit: I added in popular/mainstream because i do agree - as egalite posted - that there is good music to be found if one hunts for it.

One thing that sucks is your spelling, no offensive intended.

:eek: What? Are you on some strange drug? My spelling is - in fact - great. Given that fact, one thing that clearly does suck is your perspective. BTW it's "no offense" not "no offensive" you moron (offense intended.):yeah:

No. As with any musical era, you don't hear the good music by just walking into a cafe. You need to look a little harder for it. [/bjork] [/joanna newsom] [/animal collective]

Not really, it's just less innovative.

The radio is absolutely awful. I think mainstream music used to be better.

Bjork - first album was in 1977 so we won't include her. I do agree that you can find good music if you search for it.

The stuff on the charts used to be better yes. But almost all of my all time favorite songs were released in the 2000s.

She was 11. :lol: Her next solo album (not coincidentally called Debut) was released in 1993 and her most recent album is two months old.

Okay let's say 1993 was her first. That makes her a 90s musician. The fact that she's still going doesn't make that any less so.

Most pop music has always sucked. People may age and older will tell you all we listened to were The Beatles and Jimmi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and The Clash and Parliament/Funkadelic but a quick glance back at the charts will quickly reveal that we are lying our asses off because the charts are littered with crap from the likes of The Archies, Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods, Paper Lace, Milli Vanilli, the Bay City Rollers, The Knack and a horde of other puke-worthy bands that would make you tear off your own ears in horror.

The difference is you get about 10 years out and you can start to tell what was dreck and what was decent.

30 years out you start to listen to all the crap because it makes you feel young again, but you go "Geez, i can't believe I ever owned this crapass album/CD.

Oh, BTW, this is an album:


It had one of these inside:


Don't even get me going on these:

But Bjork's first album with the Sugarcubes was fantastic. ('88)

Not one bad / throwaway song on that album (Life's Too Good). But I didn't like hardly anything the 'Cubes did subsequently.
