  • I was born waaaaaaaaaaay too late.

    I feel I should have grown up in the 70s and 80s. I just saw an infomercial for a show called The Midnight Special. Apparently it would have been my favorite show if I was alive then because it played nothing but great music. I'm 23 and don't even listen to modern music, I personally think 99% of it is crap, i always got my radio tuned to classic rock. Been watching videos of this great show on youtube. Whats impressive is they hit just about every genre there was and even have the occasional stand up comedy from some very huge names. If your like me and never heard of this show check it out!

      Pfft, I used to think modern music sucks. It turns out I was just listening to the wrong modern music.

      But I feel like I could've been born in the 60s/70s cause I know enough and enjoy enough of the music of the time period.

        The beauty of the modern era is you can enjoy music from anytime that you like

        Embrace the now

        And honestly modern music doesn't suck you just aren't looking in the right places

          He speaks true. I still jam all the music I loved from the 90's along with the few I've found from now. I'm sure what people are mostly considering "modern music" is mainstream radio stuff but there are other places you can look. Do some research online of different genres and I'm sure you can find some underground music that is to your liking.

              modern music as a whole is the worst there is by far IMO

              my son hates it as well and it is his era lol

              i am sure there are some good hidden gems out there but for the most part, it blows hard.

              give me 70, 80, and 90's music.

                Man, I want to know what modern music you all are listening to that sucks so bad .

                If it's top 40 radio stuff, then that kind of music sucks in pretty much every decade. Basically the only good things to come out of the 70s were Led Zeppelin (and other classic rock, but it's a "genre" that undoubtedly got stale), The Carpenters, and John Denver. Other than those 3 (and a few others ), the 70s is basically an abomination to music.

                  there are maybe 6 or 7 current bands I listen to.

                  Most of them Celtic Punk.

                  I'm mostly a 70s guy with a bit of 80s and 60s

                  and Love Blues music. And some classical from time to time.

                      I know, venture outside mainstream radio stations that air the same plastic songs on repeat and look further than the iTunes store Top 100 before deciding that the modern era of music is crap in it's entirety. Consider the sheer quantity of material out there, too. Of course a lot of it will be garbage when there's just so much being produced and when pretty much anyone can do it now, if they have the will and a few bucks.

                      There was a lot of great, classic music from back in the day. But I'm sure there was a lot of crap too that's been forgotten, like most bad pieces of music are (and honestly, there are quite a few songs and bands that are referred to as "great" simply out of sentimental value).

                        Do you like folk-punk stuff by any chance?

                        If so, and if you don't know of them already, check out Andrew Jackson Jihad. Youtube some stuff, it's raw and fantastic.

                            Turns out a ton of my favorite songs..

                            were all from 1969 to 1973....

                            it amazes me over and over .

                            when I go back to look/listen.. how many were from that brief period.

                            The Midnight Special.. was wild.
                            There was also a show on called
                            "Don Kirschner's Rock Concert"
                            same type a deal. different channel.

                            Yeah every weekend... we'd be at whatever party..
                            and turn on The Midnight Special...
                            or if you were stuck at home.
                            it was like a good friend.

                            I went to a ton of those great concerts live....

                            I saw Pink Floyd do the Dark Side of the Moon Tour..in 74...
