    Never had any beer, so that isn't the problem.

    I don't really like the Beatles but I can say they are a top three band of all time. At some point, the masses win out.

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I actually have no idea what my comment meant. I didn't when I typed it either.

    As for the topic, I think it's interestin that echoes of what used to be found in mainstream music can still be heard in so much indy music. Some of it creeps into radio play occasionally as well. Fun. is basically a Queen tribute band. btw, I notice they're nominated for a best new artist Grammy, even though my favorite song of theirs is "All the Pretty Grils" from an older album. Oh well, last year Bon Iver won for their second album.

    The Black Keys are nominated all over the place, and their music clearlly hearkens back to previous generations. I'm not sure where Mumford and Sons fit into the conversation, but their stuff is quality.

    fwiw, I've talked to a lot of kids lately and discovered that while middle-schoolers tend to be completely into the hip-hop artist of the week, older teens are branching out and often seem to be developing more sophisticated tastes.

    Yeah, some of the newer successful artists are incorporating elements of older styles in their music. You hear some of that with Adele as well, and she's kind of up there as far as popularity goes at the moment.

    When I listen to the R&B station now a days I am transported to a stripper bar for each song. Lovely.

    Aside from that, I really do enjoy hearing some of the new sounds coming from the digitized productions, especially on R&B channels. I think most of the songs are produced to really sound great cranked up in a car. The lyrics are jarring, but the sounds are often really amazing. That goes for all top 40 as well. Try it out in your car and really loud. Then listen for what the producer is trying to do with the song. The producer is most certainly the one responsible for any creative aspect of top 40 stuff. Their puppets get all the credit and rarely have a smidgeon of input. Ignore the puppets.

    Not so much for Johnny Cash. Put Johnny Cash on your record player and start finishing off some beers.

    Katy Perry-Last Friday Night




    There definitely more blatantly put into today's lyrics. Last Friday night, I have a stranger in my bed, I had a threesome? I mean, sure songs have always been to some degree sexual in some nature..but today's lyrics just go full frontal with no shame at all..and honestly that's all I ever feel like I hear..songs about love, or songs about banging..What happened to music like Bob Dylan, or Johnny Cash, music where there was more variety than just singing about some hot guy/hot girl that they met at the bar and want to screw?

    I could post the lyrics to 2 Live Crew's 1989 hit "Me So Horny" but then I'd get banned.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I am sure I am wrong but there has to be some kid who will get into Led Zepplin, Thin Lizzy, Nirvarna, Soundgarden, MC5, the Beatles, the Who, Neil Young and The Clash and he/she will form a band and record an album that takes all of his/her influences and regurgitates it into some form of rock that hits and becomes popular. The Hip-hop, auto tune, drum machine music will become tired and a rock sound will be the in thing again. Musical genre's come and go and hopefully rock becomes cool again.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    To be honest, thats the one show I actually don't mind watching. Because it's actually feels the closest to the old style of "slightly educational" but still entertaining as the older cartoons.

    that's a damn good question, 'cause for 20+ years i've heard "Old Dogs, and Children, and Watermelon Wine" and i still have trouble not breaking down and crying when i hear it; and it's gotten worse since i've become a (relatively) new father.

    There's nothing wrong with hip hop or drum machines. They have their place in music.

    It's not a genre problem, it's a quality problem. Though honestly, I don't think traditional sounding rock music will ever take the mainstream back over (as long as that idea continues to last, which won't be long.)
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
