What the hell happened to music!?

Okay..So I listen to every genre out there. There's many songs on the radio I don't like, but I can still see why some people would. So I normally never listen to the radio.

BUT SERIOUSLY, what the hell is with the recent abundance of music that nearly everyone agrees is terrible?! First Rebecca Black, then Lulu, now this....

Click that and prepare to suffer.

Really though, I'm genuinely curious to know people's thoughts. There's always been and always will be songs that so many people hate, but I don't think it's ever quite been like it is now.

I mean, the backstreet boys, A*Teens, etc. may have not been Dream Theater or Mozart, but they still had some well composed, performed and produced songs.

What are your thoughts on Pop music today? Do you agree there is an abundance of "bad music" on the radio these days? If so, what do you think is the cause of it? What do you think future pop music will be like?

I agree it's becoming more and more that I don't listen to anything other than VGM remixes and OST's because anything on the radio is just complete and utter crap. I don't know what happened to what we consider music at all but as long as OC Remix is alive and well I will have music to listen too so I count my blessing's the community is still alive and kicking

I haven't turned on the radio for a good decade or so. Stuff like this is the reason why.

I was at a Christmas party where everyone was supposed to feel welcome.

I have no clue what "music" they were playing, but it made me feel awkward and extremely unwelcome.

If what they played is what passes as "music" these days, then I weep for what we once knew it to be.

I'm 20.

My collection of tapes and CDs from the 80s and 90s prove that mainstream music was superior at that time.

Every once in a while, usually on long car rides during the summer, my girlfriend and her cousin give me a painful reminder that it's very, very real.
