Oh folks, I share your pain.
My youngest, who is 19, had a stand up toe to toe...ahem...dissagreement with me over who wrote and originally performed "Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting".
Apparently it was Nickleback Eh?
Don't mis-understand me, I play Nickleback as Loud as my stereo (and wife) permit, but please!!! C'mon!!!

Please hand me my zimmer frame and I'll be on my way...

I'm 21 and can say that I would take old classic rock over present day pop and/or rap any given day. I am a big fan of the likes of Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Boston, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, etc... I also love Electric Light Orchestra! I also like a few of the newer groups as well, but I hold strong on the opinion that country + rap = crap. I'm the one and only out of my group of friends who listens to this genre of music.

Remember, all "pop" music is really "poop" music until proven otherwise; unfortunately, not too many of today's "artists" (which is not the term I'd use, but that kind of language isn't allowed here :D) are bothering to prove otherwise.

Heck, why should they, not when hundreds of thousands of people are willing to shell out money for "music" from people whose sole talents are the ability to - or get someone else to - mangl... er, sorry, remix someone else's previously recorded songs and get recording contracts with publishers that are greedy enough to distribute this kind of crap? Oh, there is some good music coming from some of the newer artists, but too much of it truly is crap and that is very much the fault of younger listeners who are willingly paying for and listening to it.:eek: "Pop culture", go figure...:rolleyes:

These sentiments were pretty much the norm when Elvis hit the scene...

ok, that's all well and good, but there ARE kids out there who know their stuff...one of the girls that did the 3AM-6AM shift before me on the now-defunct KUSF 90.3FM in san francisco constantly surprised me with her knowledge of older and obscure music...and she is only twenty years old.

but then again, dj zoe is a special case...

OH, C'MON REF!!!!

Tidbit in the local paper today (The Austin American Statesman) said the parents of Rebecca Black pulled this video off Youtube after 160 million hits and a whole bunch of ridicule. Didn't know it was so popular that it would make the local paper. Good riddance!!!
