Why is there no "great" music anymore?

first of all inb4 "you won't hear good music on the radio", "there was sucky music back then too", etc

I'm sure we've all searched high and low for good new music, and face it, nobody's as good as the beatles, led zeppelin, queen, buck owens, hendrix, waylon jennings, etc etc etc. Sure there's tons of good music out there but nobody these days holds a candle to the greats


Why is there no great music anymore?

This question is asked every generation. I'm sure my grandfather thought 70's and 80's music was garbage.

I'm gonna put these thoughts in the second post so nobody tl;dr's me


back in the day musicians got together with people they met in town, or guys that answered an ad in the paper, threw a band together, and had to pay an arm and a leg to get recorded and get their music out.

these days, instruments are better and cheaper than they used to be, you can learn whatever instrument easily on the internet, and you have a million ways of finding bandmates. and once you do all that, you can get essentially the same quality of recording equipment the great musicians recorded on for cheap off ebay, record yourself, put your music up so anyone can hear it, and some people might even pay you

these days anybody can learn to play, form a band, record and distribute their music for nearly free.

the great bands of the past had to squeeze together money for instruments, basically had to teach themselves to play or learn from somebody else, form a band with people they pretty much already knew, then pay thousands upon thousands to record and distribute their music. music used to be a full time job and a big chance and sacrifice to make to pursue a career in

these days anybody can make music and be heard, so where is all the great music?

There will be bands from our time that will be remembered as greats. Time twists things in funny ways. Get over it Gaucho.

also, stop listening to the radio

your grandfather is at least partially right if that's what he thought though because 70's >60's>50's >80's >90's

radio's conglomerate's like clear channel that own all the radio stations decide what's what and just play it regardless of if its worth a shite or not, used to people would drop by a record and try to get the dj to spin it and then people would request it?

my point exactly...

I promise you nobody who grew up listing to 80's music thinks 90's is greater.

"great" is relative

Stupid argument is stupid. Led Zeppelin has benefited from over 30 years of popularity inflation. 42 years of exposure beats 7 years of exposure every time.

I know I have several bands from the last decade that I much prefer over Led Zeppelin.
