That's my opinion. When I say classic rock, it is a liberal term. Basically, it's any song you'd hear on the radio from the 60's to the 80's.

The songs here in the States now are just about sex. Now, there is a hidden jewel here and there, but like, many of the hits now are like, "my ass is fine," "her ass is fine," "everyone's ass is fine."

What music do you like best?

Classic rock is awesome, but I do prefer Jazz (Big Band, Bebop and the occasional ragtime) over it.

Probably going to update this post of a list of my favorite songs, but 60s - 80s rock has FOR SURE some awesome songs.

@AWESOMEGUY

Yeah, Jazz is great. I play in my school's ensemble, and it's so much fun. Unless it's really upbeat, I can't listen to it without getting a bit sleepy, though. Any arrangement of Autumn Leaves is my favorite. I just love that song.

Hey man, I love the 90's and 2K, but the actual quality of the content in songs start to decrease. I will say that they are nowhere as bad as songs today, in fact, I love them, but I think the older decades' songs tell more stories and have more meanings behind them besides telling everyone that Stacy's mom's got it going on.

Banging on drums, screaming for the empire's downfall is not music, it's noise.

Romero would beat the crap out of the music you describe and he's just a small composer.

Doom 95's music had good and bad, the modern times are less obsessed with banging pots over pans while yelling.

I enjoy techno mostly because most techno has almost no lyrics. Bass Hunter and Darude are my favorite groups there.

I also like Imagine Dragons. Some of their stuff seem tangible and more inspiring.

Rock is the best kind of music. But bands like Imagine Dragons, SHM and Krewella are quite good as well. I like pretty much all kind of music, but I prefer rock ;)

there's still quality rock music being made, it's just underground. the people running the music business now are more business and less art than people from the 60s - 80s. people are still making hair raising music, there just isn't any support for it.

also, it seems like there was more thoughtful music made back then because that's the stuff that stood the test of time. there was a lot of crap back then too, you just don't hear it on the radio now.

I like modern pop songs as long as they don't have swear words or sex words... I sound like a prude... but seriously you can make a song without them.

I would not say that "Classic rock is the best music on modern Times" for two reasons. First of all this statements devalues classic rock (by your definition 60-80s) by adding "modern times" as time limit-frame. Like in 90s, 2000s or in future classic rock will not be "best music". Second praising one music style over other only reflects musical ignorance. I will not start to argue what was the golden age of rock as musical history is not my strong side. But I will take on the argument that there is no best nor superior style. We can speak of periods where one style was more popular, had its peak, development-growth period etc - but that does not make it better in essence. Everything we feel is pretty much subjective, but there is quite a lot misinformation and ignorance about music styles and especially regarding pop.

I do not understand people who listen merely one style. Its called being stuck on repetition - and in psychology referred to lower pleasure addiction. I do not argue having likes over others. But praising one style to be superior by listening only the tip of the iceberg on one style is not exactly the strong argument. Other topic is around music vides! Is video secondary or primary? Too often nowadays it is primary, and music secondary. Therefore many artists do not in my standards even qualify in field of music.

The biggest misinformation is around pop-music? What does it mean. Do we speak of general popular music or the style of pop music? Two totally different things. Although they generally tend to overlap. Pop in 60s-80s was as big hit as rock. Most people just do not know who were pop who rock genre and tend to label it under rock. While saying pop was shit like it is nowadays. Pop by genre is not crap, nor rock. The popular music made despite genre is simplistic, catchy and what matters it works. That I do not like it wont call it poor. And the saying that nowadays music is crap and in old days it was not? Its pure false thinking. The crap music just goes forgotten, so does modern crap in future! The poor quality of music and its rise is not problem of genre, but current state of things. The commercialisation of music industry, enormous label companies. If average persons source if information is news, MTV, youtube-vevo etc... one will never find true underground-indie music and will believe everything is crap and the tenths before were much better.

The difference I make in music is: a music and the music!
The music is something I value, i feel it has more to offer, is unique, artistic, different. It does not depend on style. Range from metal to classic, rap to electronic and everything between. The key factor is how it is done, who represents, what he is trying to say, why etc. Its the music you listen and you think what you listen, feel it. You never get enough of it, even in 10 years time. And this type of music for me is MUST HAVE FLAC! There is a difference and enormous.

And there is A music. Something I just listen, I like, but I do not value it, because it is either copied, no message, aka just noise like radio offers. Music you listen doing other activities, after the catch period forget and dont care about. This type of music mostly do not support FLAC, because they are mainstream, can´t produce pure analog music - too much mixboards and hyped bass. And listeners does not yearn for it.

Generally all popular artists, songs go under a music for me.

Something underrated, new, good and interesting that desperately needs audience and all is 2007+

No, more like it reflects an opinion.

One band that's great and from the 90's is Collective Soul.

I love 70s to 80s, but still a little bit of the 60s. That stuff's got better soul than almost, if not all, of today's music. I like quite a bit of today's popular songs. I can't stand metal, all it is is screaming rage and death while smashing musical instruments. It requires no skill to scream. Rap is all about hell with the police, do drugs, weed is great, yeah. Not really good messages. Yeah, maybe there is a one percent of decent rap songs, but they're damn hard to find.

Yes, its opinion. But claiming an opinion to be superior is ignorance.

@Andrew
We had a rap thread. I posted some in my opinion good rap, hip-hop artists, songs. None of them are popular, only one has hits over few million in youtube. Rap grew out of struggle, battle. It carries that seed. The theme of sex, drugs, weed and swearing os overlayed everywhere. I can´t guarantee but check my post there you might find something you like. Especially if you are into rap in sense of message, rhymes, theme. Not merely bad 128kbs bass and swearing. https://www.warlight.net/Forum/99502-rap-music-thread

Thus far I know only classic instrument breaking scenes belongs to The Who - My Generation.

I am lacking info about how style metal came to be. But I doubt that it is all about screaming, rage, death? Second I do think screaming requires a skill? Most people cant even scream - they make a rather pathetic sound. Like any other genre-styles it has enormous amount of sub-genres. Just think of Nightwish (Old-Tanja times) or Apocalyptica (instrument and song versions).
Take for example symphonic metal:
Epica
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dys1_TuUmI4 (This song has a small screaming part:))
Symphony X
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPVC2UJRAbc
Therion
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQTED_-ec8s
Or Folk-Melodic Metal
Eluveitie - in ancient gaelish-celtic? (small part of screaming)

As a modern professional musician, I take this as a bit annoying. We've come out with some truly amazing stuff in the past 20 years, and I think there's plenty of potential for even more. To claim that an entire time period is better than anything we've done in this generation is, indeed, an insult. You may consider my previous post a refutation of your claim: listen to the links. You might not agree with everything you hear, but I dare you to claim that it is subpar music.

I said there are exceptions, and you are probably one of them. But the past generation's popular stars told stories, and at the very least, weren't insanely inappropriate, unlike many of today's popular stars. Like I said, there are exceptions. Bruno Mars is one I can think of right off the bat. And I didn't say the past generation is better than ANYTHING that's come out since.
I can name plenty good bands from the 90's and 2K and some not so good bands from the 60's-80's.

If your music isn't about a girl's ass or f*cking said ass, then please don't take an opinion as an insult.
