It does nothing but strike up debates in obscure forum threads and fill up space on a couple thousand kid's harddrives.
    If you've got a group of friends with a similar taste in music then I think music can still be pretty influential at least within that subset of people. I know Kendrick Lamar's new album was the talk amongst me and my friends for several weeks...

    I keep mixing him up with Billy Ocean. Not the same person at all.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    It's really difficult to discern what constitutes Mainstream (insert format here) music today for two reasons:

    * More sub-genres of musical formats than ever. In years past, there were not as many specialized sub-formated (again, insert format here) radio stations, online or over the air.

    * As others have pointed out, it is much easier to access music today, so music that would've been considered Underground/Indie years ago may not be today.
