    The "old timer" effect

    So as a kid I would remember my parents and other adults ranting about how modern music sucks and how they rather listen to the classics that they grew up with. I thought it was pretty absurd that they felt like that and figured that it was just that they didn't adapt to the changes.

    However...now that I'm deeper in adulthood am feeling like the older times I grew up around. Yeah I like some modern music but for the most part, find myself listening to stuff from the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.

    It's kind of funny actually as I never thought I'd reach that stage but I guess when you start growing old, nostalgia becomes a dear friend.

    Any other "old timers" here?

    Yes.

    Because dubstep is shit (it's not even music), and it's everywhere.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    RE: The "old timer" effect

    Due to the obscurity of a lot of music I listen to, it's often not affected by modernness. And then there are soundtracks. Video game soundtracks in particular have actually changed a lot, and some are monotonous and generally quite boring, often adapting to the style of generic film soundtracks. But some modern game soundtracks are excellent. And I am as huge of a nerd to listen to retro game music too.

    So, no, I'm not an "old timer" for my own reasons. But I could understand why others are who have different interests. A lot of modern music is crap. Like Baron, I can't stand dubstep, despite others trying to convince me that dubstep isn't supposed to be what it is today, and that it was originally a good genre until some asshole came along and created a new trend. But that doesn't really matter to me, does it? It won't change the fact I hear this wob-wob-wob bullshit on a good amount of YouTube videos I stumble upon.

    It's deplorable.

    WUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUBWUB.

    That's not music. You can argue your point until you turn blue in the face and die from lack of oxygen, but it simply fails to meet any reqiurements that would class it as music. If dubstep is music, so is a ****ing pneumatic drill. Dig that drumbeat.

    Ah autotune...another nemesis although at times I will admit that it is funny in certain cases. But definitely annoying if overused and it's BS that some people get rich off it while others are actually releasing REAL music and don't manage to get very far despite their efforts simply because the mainstream idiots eat it up.

    RE: The "old timer" effect

    Yep. It's definitely setting in with me. I hate all these modern crazes with a buuuurning passion. Although I love the Original Dubstep sound, I feel ashamed to even utter the word, in fear of being lumped in with Skrillex and the like. I needn't make the "Old Dubstep was better" argument, because as pointed out, it doesn't matter. It doesn't change the fact that if you type Dubstep into youtube, you will get the ugly version. Hip Hop is another genre that I can only stand to listen the traditional version of. It's so shit these days. I feel very strongly about that issue, with Hip Hop being my favourite genre and all. As with Dubstep, sometimes I'm afraid to say I like it, just in case people think I listen to Lil Wayne or Soulja Boy. I still cop the occasional new album, but that is only underground stuff that comes from scenes and circles that I work with. I listen to a fair bit of 90's and early 2000's electronic music, such as Trance, UK Garage, Drum & Bass, House, and Trip-Hop. All of which are nowhere near as popular today. It's not like I'm just mad because those scenes don't exist anymore. Even chart music was better back then.

    ... Okay, so the lyrics in mainstream music have pretty much always been shallow, but at least the beat wasn't some repetitive synth bullsh*t. This is just nice to listen to. Theres a fine line between catchy and annoying. I believe that line was crossed sometime in the mid-late 2000's.
