This is random and needlessly salty of me to say, but I honestly hate it so fucking much whenever someone says something like “music was so much better back in the day” or “i miss when people were making REAL music”, or even “all modern music is crap”. Like…seriously.
Maybe it’s just my diverse taste in music, but this is such a snobby thing for you to say. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo, you like old music. Who the fuck cares? Why are you preaching about this shit on Youtube? Fuck, I see this shit on Tumblr sometimes. Like…I expect it coming from older adults or baby boomers, but coming from teenagers, and kids younger than me, it’s just pretentious as all hell. And usually this shit is said in regards to some generic 20th century rock song.
I literally do not care what decade a song is from, as long as I like how it sounds, I’m gonna listen to it. I’ll listen to jazz from the 50s, rock from 60s, disco from the 70s, new wave from the 80s, dancepop from the 90s, and anything from the 2000s and 2010s. I don’t care what it is, what year it came out, if I like it, I listen to it.
You’re never gonna catch me saying “music was so much better in the 80s” just because a majority of the songs I listen to at the moment are from the 80s. Just because I like certain types of music doesn’t mean I’m above others. Who the fuck cares if you don’t like pop? You’re not above the people who do for that one thing. I’m not above people who like rap and hip hop just because I’m not a fan of the genre.
Get your fucking head out of your ass, and acknowledge the fact that music is subjective, and don’t you ever shame anybody for not liking the same music as you do.
Sorry for the unwarranted salt, I was just thinking about how people actually do this and I just wanted to say something about it.
