i'm the youngest to post so far at 22, and i have to say it's more statistics than quality, as in, listening to 65-80s stuff, you're only going to hear what everyone has decided is best, the tried and true kind of stuff. you're filtering out the crap that was on the radio for a week before everyone realized it sucked.

the radio these days does suck, but i don't listen to it (apart from at work)
you can find good stuff, you just have to hunt it down (just like everyone else has said.) you'll be the filter for the next generation, that'll make them think that music was better from 95-2010s. (or worse....)
i'm all over the place, taste-wise, new and old, bluegrass, metal, swing, big band, hip-hop, calssic rock.

Agreed (except I don't know who Indian Jones is?)

I'll go against the grain here and say that there is MORE great music being made now than ever before. You have to search it out, talk to your friends, listen to some alternative sources, go to concerts of bands you haven't heard of. There are so many more artists out there than we've seen in the past. many of the best don't even have a recording contract.

I love great music of all eras, but peaked? Hardly.

^Part of it is that we are living in the here and now, so our views are diluted. If music is considered an art...just look at how many great artists over the years were not respected until long after they were gone?

I love Carly Simon. Don't know about the naked thing, but I'm willing to learn But the song was ruined when it was used in a ketchup commercial. Great, great song, back when lyrics and lyricism meant something.

I'm turning 40 this year and have to agree with Meaty. There's great music in all decades, you just don't hear the crappy stuff from the other decades like you do more recent stuff. You're only getting the cream from the past. There's tons of great stuff in all genres out now. You just have to pick and choose and find it.

I used to like Alternative radio, but nowadays "alternative" is what's mainsteam so WTF does the term "alternative" mean anymore? As soon as U2 won a Grammy for Best Alternative Act, you knew it was dead.

For me, alternative is still more for older bands (most not around anymore, or are not alternative anymore)... Groups/bands like Garbage, Siouxsi & the Banshees, Lush, etc... Sadly, most of the good ones are no longer making music...

Most music these days is complete garbage. I do agree there is some alright music coming out, but it is far and few between. 60's to the 90's had some great music. The past ten years haven't had any great music. If Lady Gaga keeps going strong then the next ten years may be just as bad.
