RE: Older Guys: Does Today's Music Annoy You?
I'm starting the mid-30's age range and I don't like today's music after reading things from places like The Vigiliant Citizen and other sources on how musicians and actors are passed around to sweaty producers like a party favor.

I'm more into the the grunge/alternative era, there seemed to be less propoganda. I've recently started to listen to Pearl Jam and Collective Soul.

Musically, African-Americans had it all: blues, jazz, R&B, soul, Motown, funk, etc. All good.

Rap and hip hop not only set back black music, but also black culture, for generations. A real shame.

I literally cannot listen to rap or hip hop for more than five seconds before becoming disgusted and seeking an escape from it. If rap or hiphop plays during a film, I fast forward the film without even caring about what I might miss.

I will give money to anybody on the street if they are playing real music.

What you just described is part of the war on Western civilization, e.g., equating the efforts of mediocrity with a culture of great and glorious beauty based on the efforts of the best, the brightest, and the most inspired.

Lemon's post should be in the textbook under "Boomer Posting".

-worried about being old instead of owning his tastes regardless of whether it's "cool" not.
-applauds natives clacking sticks together, implicitly groups it with Bach.
-shows no evidence of actual knowledge or passion about music. If he actually liked the aboriginal stick clacking, he'd show some knowledge about it. But it's just virtue signaling.

At 63 I listen mostly to Reggaeton and Bachata




Clean Bandit managed to incorporate Reggaeton in one of their songs.

RE: Older Guys: Does Today's Music Annoy You?
I can't stand music on the radio. Have spent the weekend watching nearly all the bands at Glastonbury and it was just painful.

I've resorted to listening to ClassicFM in the car nowadays. I like music to be either introspective/melancholic/thoughtful or the reverse; joyful, uplifting, inspirational.

I can't remember if I saw this on the forum on another thread, but I've been listening to stuff like this lately when lifting;

That is very interesting. I am not a heavy metal fan, but I could definitely enjoy listening to that. The first thing that popped into my mind was the theme song from "Once Were Warriors." I have listened to that song, inspired by Maori music, ever since I watched the film many years ago.





Edit: I just learned that Tama Renata died last year.

I know. I'm honestly the last person you'd expect to enjoy listening to Mongolian heavy metal, but it works for me. That, Rammstein and Dropkick Murphys are helping me get through my sets and reps.

Sometimes I have to bite my tongue around boomers. I am prompted to ask them, "were you high when you were listening to this music?" Seriously man, some of their music is whack.

On the other hand though there are some real winners, like Motown, disco, Rock, and I know I'm leaving out others. 80's was a bit garish for my taste but there were still some winters in that era. I just don't consider myself a Madonna fan, or George Michael for that matter. Rick Astley on the other hand, is my guy.

80s music is Gen X. Not Boomers.

I simply cannot stand to be around it, even if it's playing as background music in a restaurant or bar. And that brings me to the problem: you cannot get away from this crap.

I don't like today's Hollywood films, but that's an easy fix. I just don't buy tickets to shows and instead I opt to stay home and watch older movies which don't promote the Globohomo agenda.

But contemporary pop music is thrust into our lives whether we want to hear it or not. I can't go to a restaurant or bar without being exposed to it. Even if the place is filled with older people, for some reason these places think I want to hear the pop star puppets of today instead of the much better music I grew up on.

It becomes a real problem too when you're out with friends, especially younger friends who grew up listening to these singers/bands and don't seem to mind it. If you protest, you come across as a complainer.

And even if you are with others who think like you, where do you to escape from this brainwashing? Nearly every establishment pumps this genre through their speakers. So you're assaulted by it wherever you go.

I'm interested in knowing if there are others here who feel the same way and how it's affected them.
I'm a lot older than you and I'm not planning on reading this whole thread. At least not now anyway. Almost everything about today's music, art, culture, etc in the USA revolts me. I'm listening to Jack McDuff 1962 vintage as I type this. I love my jazz. It keeps me sane. I'm almost totally divorced from today's American so called culture. I'm hardly a snob. A shot and a beer sawdust on the floor kind of guy. OK. Back to Brother Jack and the end of this rant for now.

Does anyoen like Old Town Road by LIL NAS X.
He just came out, so that may lose him fans.
The song is number 1 on Billboard hot 100.
I guess Country Rap is a semi popular genre now
but who knows if it will last.
Its an okay song with Billy Ray Cyrus singing on it.

Are you serious? That old joke came true:

Musicans are now combining country and rap. It's called CRAP."

RE: Older Guys: Does Today's Music Annoy You?




The real mindfuck has been realizing not only that I hate modern pop music, but I now dislike the pop/punk music that I grew up listening to in the 1980s. It seems like the more you start "noticing" how the World is constructed the less you can enjoy this stuff. So now I listen to a bunch of classical and some jazz. The above is a great example, start at 42:35 for a great piece of music created 192 years ago by a German, and performed for the first time in public at his friend's birthday party. It is objectively beautiful.

These times, I read a study that said that our ears are more apt to like the songs of a certain time... then the ears close for new songs!

Google search: 'radio [genre of music] [years xx] online' that maybe find something.

Yes and no...

What they play on the radio, yes, that shit annoys me immensely. But what they played on the radio in the past decades also mostly annoyed me so it's not the era but the fact that it's popular crap music that annoys me.

It's like food... I don't like the popular fast food... I do appreciate nutrient dense food. Music is the same... Popular music is faint and not "nutrient dense" a lot of unpopular music is very satisfying for the soul and ears...

So yeah I can appreciate a lot of modern day music but they mostly don't play that shit on the radio...

I find the 90s was the last great decade for music. Most music after that is trash.

I'm not really feeling the Trapp beat on Old Town Road. Here are some older country crossovers, though I never really cared for Nelly's songs.

Ghetto Cowboy is actually telling you a story plus it has an actual melody, while Old Town Road seems like a lazy attempt at a country crossover.

1998:




2004:




2014:




Not that I'm really allergic to Trap beats but that depends on the beat and the artist.
