My dear, we shouldn’t be too hard on the lad—he may grow out of his infatuation with things 90’s. There are some stellar 90’s bands like Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dandy Warhols, NIN, the Sounds and a handful of exciting post Y2K bands (The Submarines, Beruit, etc.). What you have to accept is that ROCK, as we know it, is dead—digital killed it. There will never be another SGT Pepper because people won’t sit thru an entire LP these days—we all buy songs based on 4 second samplings—I do!!
Agreed. There is no such thing as GOOD MUSIC or Bad Music. Just look at your friend condensendingly and sneer “So you’re an Alterna-Chick? At least you ain’t RAP!!! What is truth is that we are all entombed in the music of our youth so everything before or after automatically SUCKS!!! I listen to some sixties but my music is POST -Punk (1979-1994) College Radio. Its whats on my iPod & iPhone!
OF COURSE you loved the Sixties and Eighties—the sixties was the Apex of Rock & Roll. Rock became fat, bloaded and boring after 1974 and it was PUNK (class of ‘77) that breathed life into the bloaded corpse—but Punk was too angry, simplistic and PC to listen to for long. So it was replaced by POST PUNK (joy-division to Nurvana) which returned MELODY to prominance over Technique. Post Punk died 1994 and Rock expired Y2K. Here is your chance to discover all the great stuff you missed!!!
I think in that time there was a great archaeological find in china of ancient chinese soldiers made of clay with their horses each having their own distinct faces, hundreds of them standing in formation. This looks like one of them.
I LOVE THE EIGHTIES!! but ’twas born in the late nineties.. I know a guy who HATES the 80’s, and we got into a BIG fight.. But push goes to shove, 60-80’s BEST YEARS EVER, I HATE MODERN MUSIC!! (unless it’s Sissel, Enya, or Alexander Rybak!! Or good Norwegian singers)
