I was at a club the other night, a supposed hip and up and coming place. Every other song the dj played was filled with N-word, F-word, C-word over and over again and again. If there was any artistic value it was lost in the over use of derogatory terms and cuss words. Is this common and acceptable these days or am I just being an old fart?

A little of both. Unfortunately that type of music has become acceptable to many people, in lieu of music that has a useful message and/or desirable melody, for lack of a better word. I'm 46 and don't consider myself to be old or a prude in any way, but I have no use for much of today's music. It comes and goes quickly, and I doubt much of it will be on anyone's radar 10, 20, 30 years from now. Then again, I'm sure previous generations had many of the same opinions.

You probably shouldn't expect to hear good music at a club unless it's live. Night clubs usually play bad music.

Much of the music wasn't bad, but the Lyrics killed whatever artisitic value there was.

When IQ is rated in the double digits....they grasp for vulgarity...unfortunately many of the double digit audience members seem to approve.

I think Elvis was deemed 'inappropriate'...at one time.
(Even Stravinsky had a riot, at one of his concerts, for that.)

But, yes, the vulgarity....is getting worse.


Can't/Don't want to imagine what's next?
Listen to whatever you want to...but keep your windows closed and the volume to a necessary level.
= My humble advice.

I can't stand how people mistake obscene, crude garbage for music these days.
I just had to recently stop hanging out w/ someone for this reason; major disagreement on musical preferences. Listening to that kind of noise is worst than nails on a chalkboard to me.

I am 30 years old and to me, if the lyrics to a song are going to be nothing but one swear word after another after another after another, I flat out refuse to listen to it.

God bless you always!!!
