Default I always told myself I would never be the old man ranting "today's music sucks"

But watching the Billboard Music Awards last night...holy fck today's shit is awful...has music ever been in a worse place?

Just one glitter covered talentless pop star in skinny jeans after another...singing some generic 'let's party' theme with lasers around them. No heart, no emotion, just garbage.

In the 90s the charts were dominated with artists like Kurt Cobain, Perry Farrell, Trent Reznor, Chilli Peppers, GOOD rap, etc, etc...people with actual talent, they could play instruments, no computers needed.

last night is was Bieber...Ariana Grande...Britney Spears...etc



Any of you young whipper snappers want to defend this shit?

The music industry isn't even about music anymore.

It's about being flamboyant, it's about being obnoxious, it's about looks- sound doesn't matter.

there's still good pop music coming out, but its in subcategories, like "indie pop" and certain kinds of "world pop."

you just have to hunt around until you find the truly creative types. they might be forced underground, but they'll never disappear.

Billboard always sucked its strictly the best selling artists and the masses have bad taste.

What's the first song playing? I think it's in a cricket wireless commercial.

It's hard to think of anything decent from the last few years..
I like Royce da 5'9s new album.

I even tried to listen to beyonces new album, everyone going on about how great she is, and I'm like wtf is this shit. Pure garbage.
Barely listen to the radio it's just torture now, guess I'm an old fart aswel I'll just keep listening to 90s and early 00s

To a space alien from another planet who looks at humans totally objectively - he's no different than a Justin Timberlake, or a Michael Jackson.

To people of different generations caught up in the nostalgia of their youth/hey-day/prime, what an egregious comparison!

...but really that's the truth. In 25 years the current 12-15 year olds will have grown to an age that they lose their temper when any of the future 12-15 year olds have the AUDACITY to mention Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift in the same sentence as _(insert generic pop star of the future here)_.
