Newer music not so good?

I am a fairly young person, and I seem to be shunning all the new music that is coming out lately. I just do not think it is of the same quality as music was between the 60s-90s. I love classic rock and my music collection entails mostly older music. Do you ever feel the same way? Why?

Well I grow up through the mid to late 80tys and early 90tys and I enjoy a lot of music from those times, but I also still enjoy some of the music of today I do agree that some of the music of today is a little manotness and a lot of it sounds the same, but every now and then theres still a few good songs that come out, I love music and I always prefer to keep an open ear.

Yes, I always keep my ear open to and occasionally find something good. But most of the time my ears start to bleed if im listening to the radio, lol. Thanks for the response.

I am not a fan of most newer music either. I think it has just gotten to be too much for me with all the profanity and the such that goes into it. I love the old songs from the 60-90s much like you.

I do not mind the profanity so much, but the songs that they have now is mostly all profanity, well at least some of the songs and thats a bit too much. Thanks for your response.

I completely agree! Im 20 - almost 21- and I can't stand to listen to the radio stations anymore. I hardly touch anything that isn't my own Ipod. To find newer music that are similar to what I like I go to pandora.com and usually find some good stuff. The only popular things I like seem to come from movies unless they are people like Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, and Taylor Swift. (I only like new country I guess!) When it comes to pop, rock, etc I don't like the majority of what is coming out so I just don't bother. The new stuff just sounds so different that I either don't agree with the lyrics or it just doesn't sit well with me. Its odd for me to shun music, but I have been for the last year or so. You aren't the only one!

It is good to hear I am not the only one. I love music too, and give everything a fair chance but whenever I do go look for new music, I usually end up finding something from a few decades ago as the only thing I actually enjoy. Sometimes it is hard to connect with people of my age about this because they are all into newer music and im like who and what are you talking about? I was even at one of my moms parties once and I had my iPod playing. Everyone there liked my music, and they were all fourty or older. So it was kind of weird. Do you ever have problems talking to your friends because they do not have the same taste as you?
