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?

Re: Modern Pop Music Really Does Suck

"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.
