Default Why is Modern Pop Music so Terrible?

It turns out that science supports that which many of us already know to be true.

Maybe its just a product of aging past my youth and early adult years, but music seems to have steadily declined over the decades.

The 60's was the golden era of pop music. Love love love the 60's, ranging from British and American pop, doo-wop to Motown.

Great music continued through the 70's as the classic rock era took off.

Perhaps my favorite decade of music is the 80's. I love the 80's... from Hair Bands to British New Wave pop. Always loved 80's music and the variety it brought.

The 90's transitions quickly out of that 80's sound, but the alternative music popular through the 90's ended up being great. I remember living during the 90's (my HS years) thinking that 90's music sucked, as the hip hop era really took off (never liked) and country music (also never liked). Growing up in the 90's I always missed 80's music. However, looking back, I do realize all the great alternative rock and pop the 90's brought.

2000's and since... music plainly sucks. I mean, sure, there are pockets of decent music once in a while (I like some of the emo-rock stuff) but mostly, music of the last 15 years has sucked.

Musical decades ranked based on my own personal taste

1. 80's
2. 60's
3. 90's
4. 70's
5 50's
6 00's
7 10's

Exactly. Is it any worse than Spice Girls or Hanson?

Yep.

The reasons for this are explained pretty thoroughly and very well in the video.

Interesting enough, music sucking today makes those 60,70,80,90 catalogs worth a lot more money.

We live in strange times. Truly amazing artists that are available instantaneously at a mouse click. Yet the vast majority of these talents go unnoticed commercially. You have to give a tiny bit of effort to find the good stuff, and for 99% of the population that doesn't work. There is some really great "modern day pop" music out there. Same for every other genre. Just not the stuff you hear on the radio / see on the TV.

The amount of choices for people in general have decreased significantly over the past 20 years.

You aren't looking if you believe that. It's just not on the radio or the TV.

I know there's tons of music out there...I was really talking about the commercialized stuff.

A similar path is video games. Tons of games in the 90's. Now not so much. And most are just sequels.

There's a significant advantage for the old guard if they can limit the availability of quality new stuff.

James Blake is mesmerizing. Won't find him on the radio. My kind of pop.

He sounds like My Morning Jacket. Heavy on the reverb.
