Am I getting too old or is it true that most of today's popular music sucks?
Advertisements [?]
The only current music I can listen to is Underground, non commercial stuff

I saw this commercial of a compilation of so called rock bands and every one of them had the same soulless, blaring sound. I couldn't tell one from the other.

What the hell has happened to rock?

And the rap that they play on the radio and TV, it sounds too simple and unmusical.

Where is jazz? Why is soul so unsoulful?

Is this why music tv channels don't play music videos anymore... lack of content?

Thanks God for the Underground music scene. Without them, I would have nothing to listen to and play on my radio show
