|Im sick and tired of listening and watching crap songs and groups that are coming out now days.
I know freddies gone but if queen came back they would destroy everyone, i think we need queen back because music nowadays is pathetic.
I mean most people who listen to music go back to the 70's ad 80's because thats when real bands made music.
Todays music is all about doing stupid dance moves, mimming and doing cover versions of great songs and they turn it into crap. For example, i think there called electric six, they've brang out a cover version on radio ga ga and they have completely spoiled it.
I think the boys need to come back and show these groups how its really done, even if its just roger, john and brian they would still be the best.
|your not the only one, i too am absolutely sick of this shite that comes out, i've gotta put up with it everywhere e.g shops, school etc
you try and explain about rock and roll or 60's,70's 80's music to these teenagers now and they really dont know what the hell music is, i'm so fed up with it, we need some good old rock and roll too come back and too stay back for as long as possible
|Im a teenager (17) and i hate the music that people come out with
|Today's music makes one want to hurl!
I shudder to think what popular music will be like in ten more years. I hope we see the retro trend go on and hopefully there will be artists who won't think of dollar/pound signs and put the music (and artistic licence) first, like many of their predecessors did.
Does anyone honestly think Britney Spears will be remembered for her contributions to "music" in the next twenty years? If what she does is called music, I'm suddenly afraid...
|Im sick and tired of listening and watching crap songs and groups that are coming out now days.
I'm sure ppl said that about Queen, Pink floyd and LZ back in the 70's when they were new
|A few months ago, I'd be the first one to agree with you that today's music is crap, but I've realized that not all of it is. There are some great bands out there, like Velvet Revolver, Jet, Franz Ferdinand, Cake, The Darkness (don't kill me!), Maroon 5, etc. You just have to look past the pop-punk, rap and popstars to find them. :)
|I grew up in the 1980s when mtv began taking form , if you watch mtv now here in america its the absolute worst channel on television .. give me VH1 Classic anyday , atleast when they do the opening credits for All - Star - Jams they show a animated Freddie in the yellow wembley outfit in part of that. I think thats nice to see every now and again. There are some "new" bands that do the older generation thing pretty well. Coldplay and Radiohead are two groups here that come to mind. I dont think its ever changed really but if you notice most of the good stuff in my opinion still comes from the UK. American bands just havent really come to grips with a good sounding music, unless you like the blues , and then most of the legends if not too old , are already dead such as a stevie ray vaughn. When I dont listen to Queen , i usually pop in Styx , Styx is pretty good , my favorite styx song is Blue collar man.
I like a new group called Muse too , Maroon 5 isnt that bad either. Like i said before i was just 11 when i got turned onto Queen thanks to Waynes World and Mtv News showed excerpts from the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert. I think back then too VH1 had this show called My Generation, Brian May was featured there as well I still have the VHS tape somewhere where i recorded this. Brian May brought me closer to liking Queen as I like good guitars in music. You dont hear good guitar riffs anymore such as whats in Save me , or even Bijou. As far as Drummers go , I have yet to hear anyone thats better than Roger Taylor , or Def Leppards drummer Rick (i dont know his last name). I probably sound stupid to you guys .. but I try my best to get out how i feel on a certain topic.
|Don't like it as well, so I never listen to it, and I started complaining about it a long time ago. Works pretty good.
Besides, who decides what is good music? Maybe, in fifty years time, it turns out that La Britney was the best female singer of the 20th century. You never know, really.
Nowadays, everyone says that the eighties were so great, that the seventies brought us some great disco songs, and that the sixties were a revolt. Not to mention the revolutionary early years of Rock 'n Roll.
Everyone tends to forget, however, that most of the rubbish of these decades are completely forgotten. If you want proof, just download the top 100 of a random year, and listen to all the songs. You'll find that half of it is complete crap. The highlights were just a part of it, luckily the part that remained.
The same will probably go for the nineties and the zeros (?). Time will tell which great bands the recent years brought.
Oh, and for those who will mention all the lousy covers that are in the charts nowadays: it started at the end of the 1980's, and the comments were the same: it sucked (but it scored).

Floyd, Zep and Queen all sold records without having their faces on their covers. All but three Queen albums in the 70s did not have their faces on it. Once MTV came into play, it was about STYLE and I don't give a rat's ass about style!

See her without makeup, get a barfbag!
|i'm not sure why people put down the darkness, like gunpowder said their not bad, pretty good but not great. Why do Queen fans put them down? obviously their no where near Queen, but at least the songs are decent and they have guitar solos (guitar sound has brian may influence). I think their better than most that's out there, because most of todays music we seem to agree is crap. why not have the surviving members of Queen give it a shot. cos it might be the right time to catch lightning in bottle. it's all about timing.
|I saw The Darkness live this past summer and totally loved their stage show. They have a lot of energy and they do remind me of the early Queen -- more than a lot. They put fun back into rock and roll, and that's been needed for a while now!
|There's plenty of decent music being made. You just have to find it instead of waiting for TOTP to spoonfeed it to you.
|i agree there's good music out there, i'm just not sure it's in the rock/pop catagory. yea jazz blues type stuff.
|I hate nearly everything that comes out today, there are maybe 5 bands that are even worth listening to. It's very sad...
|Well, my favorite era of music is from 1966 to 1980, with the exception of some things in the greater part of the 80's. But that does not mean ALL music today is crap. Correction: most of it is crap.
There are a lot of underground stuff that no one, or hardly anyone has heard because it is not mainstream.
|and Mike Hunt is right:
Blues and Jazz are great, but its not like that ever gets the praise it truly deserves.
|fact: music has always been (largely) crap - the best decade ever for music (the 60s) had more manufactured bands than any decade since - what was the whole mersey sound about? add to that the tamla motown stuff, the specter studio and the flower power offshoots and you have about 1000 shite bands that actually had hits....that's not forgetting those like cilla, lulu, petula etc - god there were so many...
the 70s were just as bad - osmonds, jackson 5, paper lace, mud, alvin, showaddywaddy, boney m, most of the punk/disco/reggae/new wave stuff
and as for the 80s - all of it!!!
what you need to do is not focus on how much shite is about, but dig out and buy the good
muse, maroon 5, evanescence, jet, kasabian, u2, chilis, foos, ther is enough to go round....just find it

In my opinion, there are numerous other proofs that she doesn't, but that's just my taste. And even I have to agree that she made some quite good songs. But time will tell what to think of B. Spears.

What's this f**king obsession with Muse all about. I saw them live about six years ago and thought they sucked heavily. Then I saw them again four years ago, and still thought they sucked bigtime, and now everyone starts to praise them. Wonder why.
*frustration mode off*
TranscendingQueen wrote: Bands these days may write their own songs but what really pisses me off (aside from the fact they all sound the same) is that all the songs are on the same subject!! Pop-shit is all this 'Girl! I love you' shite OR 'Boy! You cheated on me you lying cheating bastard!' DON'T get me started on Britney Spears - she has the worst voice I have ever heard. Who was the deaf sonofabitch who gave her a deal? HONESTLY! Not all of it's bad though, like you said; Maroon 5 and the Darkness, etc are all good. Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of my only fave '90s bands (though they did start in the '80s). Nonetheless, '80s and backwards had the real stuff.This is utter bullshit. Ever since there is pop music, and even way before that, these have been the themes. In the 80's, most bands wrote about love as well, just as in the 50's, the 60's and the 70's.
The only thing that really changed is the tone. Cursing has been not done until recent years. That's really the only difference I can name between contemporary music and music from past decades.
And finally, I'm not especially into Britney's music, but it's not worse that many other artists. She may be a bitch (though I don't know her), and she may not be the best singer in the world, but she has a style, and that has always been just as important.
People like Freddie Mercury, Peter Gabriel, Elvis Presley and Mick Jagger all have good singing voices. Without their appearance, I seriously doubt whether any of them would have been a success.
|ok.. never wrote here anything, but now it's time :)
Absolutely agree with author . Started to listen 70'-80's rock when i was 3 yrs, now i'm 22 but there is no new Queen, no new Led Zep, no new Aerosmith, no new Pink Floyd, etc..
Sure there're some good voices, some talented groups (again Coldplay, RadioHead, Maroon5) , but how long they'll be good ? Aerosmith could easily play some Backstreet boys songs ( thanks god they can do harmonies too :) , but can Backstreet's even cover Cryin' for example ?? Not sure :)
How can U2 still play good music ? How Darkness guessed that their music will be an excellent present for 70'-80' rock lovers ?
two years ago found a american group called "Sugarbomb"... it was superb .... very Queen-oriented .. at the same time they experimented with theit style, they showed what they could . But unfortunately they released one album and disbanded. As i read somewhere - their music just wasn't popular in USA. 'cause people want britney, madonna, avril lavigne and etc...
Sounds sad even to me...
Another thing is videos .. Can you fully remember any really good funny video of Britney ? Not sexy ! not tragic (can't understand why to suicide in bath :)))! And now remember "i want to break free", "Kind of magic", I'm goin' slightly mad. For the others - any of Aerosmith clips, Some Genesis ("I can't dance"). Even Robbie Williams has good videos (btw, like his early albums - but not what he's doin' now)
Sorry for my english...
That's the least of their problems %)

|Týr is a great rockband: link
|i think 70/80's was the best time for music
between these years, there were giants and greatest bands: queeen, led zeppelin, u2, aerosmith, rolling stones, the who
incredible isn't it?
today music is very comercial; "artists" aren't prepared, they sing crap, and they sing what the music company want they to sing
that's because bands like u2 are surviving: after almost 30 years, they are yet originals
|Music died along with Freddie.

Then I saw them again four years ago, and still thought they sucked bigtime, and now everyone starts to praise them. Wonder why. *frustration mode off*Btw, Muse are good just because they have their own style i think.. Any similar bands?
However it's a personal ... For example i don't understand what is so great 'bout Deep Purple :)

And I wasn't talking about songs having themes! I don't have a problem with themes - or love songs. What I'm on about is boy bands and shite-heaps like the 'not-so-bad' Britney singing the same old same old. I seriously can't name one song by either of them that doesn't have similar lyrics. After flipping through a Backstreet Boys CD cover thingamajig of my little sister's one day I noticed most of the lyrics were pretty much the same. And when she was playing that piece of crap CD, I couldn't distinguish one song from the other 'cos they all sound the same! That's what I was on about! Christ Wouter! Don't you tell me I'm full of crap when your post is saying Britney's not as bad as the rest. Now do you get it? Or are you going to blast me again so I have to waste my valuable time telling you I wasn't talking anything about THEMES! But about the similar lyrics and almost exact same sound!I didn't say Britney is not as bad as the rest. There are some of her songs which I kinda like, but most I don't. I can't tell whether she's a great artist, time will tell. However, I don't think she's worse than most other artists.
And bands and singers singing the same song over-and-over-again, that's, as I was saying before, nothing new. Listen to the early work of the Beatles, it's the same song done twenty times over, and the same was for the rest of all Mersey-beat bands. And all the other decades afterwards. Modern music is no exception and no improvement or a worsening.
And by the way, 'Girl! I love you' and 'Boy! You cheated on me you lying cheating bastard!' ARE themes.
Nb. sorry if I was reacting kinda harsh. Didn't mean to.

|Music comin' out nowdays are STUPID?!!!! Well,not all of them are stupid.Linkin Park is also my favourite.They rox my sox.We are all to blame by the rock band called Sum 41 is cool.I also like to dance like the female pop stars of nowdays(but not all of them).American Idiot by Green Day is a nice one.
If you're sayin' that nowday artists are bad,it means that you're saying that Linkin Park is no good,huh?And my crush Joseph Hahn is in that band!Sorry no offence.
Queen is the only old artist that I like:D
P.S I'm only eleven and a half years old.
|There are also a few exceptions, like Norah Jones, Michael Buble and Josh Groban. All three of these people put on an incredible live show.
They prove you don't need things like profanity and subject matter about killing people to sell CDs and concert tickets.
There's enough hate and anger in this world and it's showing too much in some of today's music...and it's sad. Very sad.
|The new music...just sucks like:
Britney,50 cent,Usher,JoJo,Nelly,Hilary Duff,Lindsay Lohan,Ja rule,Chingy,LL Cool J and more more more more more
I hate it:]!
|I agree with above, i like norah jones and josh groben.
