Default Bubble Rap

Rap is vulgar Bubble Gum, period.

It's useless garbage for music. What it really should be considered is Performance Street Poetry. Like Lenny Bruce, the Rappers are vulgar, trying to shock, make a point, and be hip. It has no place in our musical archives.

Mainstream music was insanely good from about 1991 to about 1996 or so. Then the boy bands, puff daddy, blink 182, and the nu metal bands came along and ruined everything.

I think that the music now is really so bad. While I am a country and western music fan, country music is trash now. Nashville doesnt mean anything anymore.

Rock music is even worse. There's no Rock Band I appreciate , except perhaps The Killers.

And I dont even hear any genuine Pop music anymore.

I wish we could go back to the 50s and early 60s when they had great Rock n' Roll and Pop music and Country Music meant something.

Now its all just meaningless fodder.

So, that being, said, I mostly only listen to independent or small label artists. For Country, I like Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, and occasionally the Mavericks.

For Rock its The Killers- although they have gotten a bit too mainstream these days, they still make great music.

For Pop I just dont know if it even exists anymore, but I like oldies like Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley.
I agree for the most part. I'm only 26 and about 70-80% of the music I listen to is from the 60's-ealry 80's. Then 10% or so from early-mid 90s (grunge/alternative scene).

The only bands I think I like that are from the last 10 years or so are Audioslave (no longer together), The Black Keys (jsut got turned on to them), The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket, some Kings of Leon, etc.

Oh God no. That was some depressing stuff that was out then. I don't ever want to go back to the days of Candlebox/Bush/Pearl Jam/grunge ever again.

Not that Puffy and and Blink 182 are any better. They might be equally bad. Or slightly worse.

Personally, my favorite genre of music is progressive rock and progressive metal. My two favorite bands, Rush and Dream Theater rarely get radio play, BECAUSE they refuse to go mainstream. I can't remember for certain the last time I listened to the radio, but I think it was back in 2002.

But on another note, to complain about all music in the past 30 years? that takes care of the 80's as well, and I thought there was a lot of good stuff put out by bands in the eighties. Pop bands, rock bands, country artists.

For example, Ronnie Milsap, David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck--all released music in the 80's. While a lot of 90's era country sounded more like pop or rock than it did country, there were still some purists like Randy Travis.

Agreed 100%

Rock has died a death (at least mainstream rock). Bands today such as Nickelback, Seether, Three Doors Down and Godsmack are a joke.

Pop music has never been worse. I've never seen so many talentless bimbos in the charts who can't sing for s**t, including the likes of Katy Perry, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and Lady Gaga. None of these "divas" could even hold a torch to the pop starts of the 80's an 90's, including Madonna, Whitney Houston, Belinda Carlisle and Alanis Morisette.
