Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck



This is really interesting. And just as I have always said, Apple killed music.

Also, those of you who have said that making a hit is cheaper than it used to be, as I've said before, you're wrong.

But, basically, this is what I've been saying for years. Making good music is too risky these days. The record labels do not have the piles of cash to burn on all the losers you need to go through to find one winner.

Local music, where money is not really the goal, is going to be the only place to find quality and variety.

Anyway, this should make you old "get-off-my-lawn" curmudgeons feel even more self-righteous. I mean, not that you'll do anything about it...

Re: Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck

surprise, surprise, underground is not any better. as of late, we have two shitty options because what are any of the two systems in any way creating world changing music?

I've been saying for the past 4 years that there is this polarizing effect between mainstream and underground. As a result, there is no middle space to create shared moments. Today, nobody can agree on what a shared classic tune is..

At the end of the day, underground is fwd thinking. If the crowd isn't sophisticated enough to push their underground artists/sound to the mainstream, and get get rid of the sucky pop, then we cant cimplain about the mainstream.

Re: Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck

What you're saying is that there is no way for the underground to cross over into the mainstream?

"Pop" music is made pretty much exclusively for 13 year old girls and is designed to sell Merch and tickets and product endorsements.

So of course adults think it all sucks.

There is lots of good adult music being made today across many genres, its just hard to find through all the shit that's also being spewed out today.

Re: Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck

I remember being a teenager and the Pop Music in those days that I enjoyed were from Michael Jackson, George Michael, Boy George and Madonna.

As I aged Pop Music didn't interest me as much.

Now in days there are some Pop Music tracks that stand out like music from Bruno Mars, but the most kids are into Taylor Swift/Demi Lovato/Nick Jonas. I would never be caught listening to tracks from those music artists.

Unfortunately if you are in your 30s/40s and 50s you are not considered the targeted audience for Pop Music. Yes, you might go see an artists that sang Pop Music back in your teenage years, but this is different.

Re: Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck

Just because pop music targets a younger crowd doesn't mean it has to suck. You just gave several examples of pop music that was excellent. If you actually watch the video, you see why pop music is going down in actual quality.

I am curious if this phenomena is also happening to pop in other places like Europe, Asia, South America (to me all Latin music sounds the same, anyway) and Africa.
