When did the music stop for you?

For me, music stopped in the late 1990’s. Before this time, music was something to be enjoyed and listened to, where you could appreciate the talent and passion behind the performance. However, it seems as though someone has stolen the passion from modern music and replaced it with a mass produced commercialistic noise that lacks any resemblance to music. So I want to pose two questions to you 1) When did the music stop for you? 2) Am I just being an old fart?

It hasn't stopped for me. But I have changed what I like and what I listen to.

@destry It happened when I met my husband and he got me into country music.

Something smells in here. While there are tons of piles of crap (or what I consider crap) out there, I do get the occasional joy from newer releases. But most of it that I like is coming from older acts like Leslie West or Tom Petty. But then there's Chickenfoot and The Circle (two bands fronted by Sammy Hagar) and a few others that I think rawk and make good stuff happen.

And then you have Foo Fighters...Dave Grohl broke a leg during a performance earlier this year...and had a chair brought out so they could finish the show. THAT is rock 'n' roll.

I completely get where you are coming from. These days youngsters don't 'discover' bands or artists, they are told what 'band' (quotes fully intended) or artist to like by the likes of Simon Cowell. For me music stopped around about 1980 when all of the genuinely innovative electronic music stopped being produced. Although there are some notable exceptions such as The Smiths, Muse, Bjork and more recently Royal Blood.

Never heard of Royal Blood, wondering if it is reptilian in nature! Will have to have a look and see ;) It does seem as though the younger generation are being force fed bands for a financial gain of the producers.

@destry Royal Blood are a duo consisting of a drummer and a bassist/vocalist. The bassist produces an incredible range of sounds and the drumming is almost melodic in places. Definitely worth a listen even if it's only to admire the musical ability of the two guys.

The music never stopped for me, it is the clips that bother me more than the music itself (too many clips with violence an indecency). Thought music had much more soul in the 50's-80's and early 90's. But still there are a lot of good songs and artists.

If you feel old, I cannot imagine what you think about me, the music stopped in the late seventies.

That was probably the height of modern music!

For me, it must have stopped in the early 80's.

I like the old rock from the 70's and 80's but I will still turn up the radio to songs performed since then.

For me music has never stopped and never will as long as there are still people who don't give in to the temptation of creating commercial tunes of very little value. Luckily, thanks to the Internet radio stations or Youtube it is much more easily for us than it was twenty years ago to discover such bands that make great music even nowadays, but of course there is also a degree of subjectivity in each of us regarding the styles of music that we consider to be "good music." I try to keep an open mind and listen to music from all decades, starting from the sixties up to the present day, and I am convinced i still have a lot of great bands and tunes to discover both from the past and the present.

The music hasn't stopped for me yet, for me...it's just something that I keep rediscovering:)
