There's actually a lot of great newer music out there. The problem is that it's not what's being played over the air for the most part.

I may like 15% of newer radio songs at BEST, but I end up getting sick of that >15% since they're overplayed.

The fact that the radio sucks for the most part is one of my main reasons for making this subforum. Got some music you like? Share the info here.

Ofcourse not, but music has changed ALOT in just the past few years... Now with iTunes, almost anyone can put up an album of theirs- its not just the greatly popular bands. New music comes out much faster these days, making music take alot of changes in just a short time period.
Im not supporting newer music or older music, just a general statement.

albums were crap long before itunes.... now at least you can just buy the good songs from that album and save some money.
iTunes didnt make music crap, it just made it easier for people to get the music they want faster and easier.

There are some bands that I know of that were really popular with some epic crap music, disappeared from the limelight, but kept playing and ended up releasing an amazing album that never got any focus on it. I think a big killer of some promising bands are the contracts they sign requiring quick turnaround on albums.

Very true. As well as record companies/producers forcing bands & singers to fit to their pre-constructed mold. Terrible example, but take a look at Pink... first album was very R&B/pop due to the record company, second albums-now are a lot more rock influenced. But this control also has a down side. The lyrics that she sings have always been meh, but she started writing them on her own after the second album, which made them progressively worse. Again poor example, but this is what came to mind.

another issue is that only 3-4 companies own >90% of radio stations...that means they decide the genre's and who gets played...

lol pretentious music people. I've never listened to the radio. Before MP3 players I used the cassette adaptor with my Walkman and played CD's in my mom's car. This was when I was like 10.

Let people listen to what they want. Listen to what you want. No point in getting angry about other people's tastes.

Well... of course everyone has their own opinion to what music they like and such. I know that mine's right so that helps me get by. ;)

F'en A! Like Clear channel and other big buisness crappers. Oh and dont get me started on ticketmaster and the people that book shows. They sell tickets and charge fee on top of fee. I hardly go to shows anymore, unless they are local.

WHAT!?! You don't like Heidi Montag or Paris Hilton?!?! We are soooo not friends...

Agreed. It's hard to find talent in music now...auto-tune also is to blame besides over produced songs/albums.

The only radio station I can stand listening to is WHP 580 Talk Radio (AM), cuz they don't play crap music!

I couldn't tell you the last time I turned a radio on, I use my Zune when driving- the radio is annoying. My favorite band would be Dredg,
Nothing that unique on the radio, and yes that guy is actually singing, no need for a computer generated voice when you have vocals like that.
