      Definitively in the nebulous space between 1993 and 94 when everybody else wanted to be either the new Nirvana or the new Tupac,

          Music has went down hill, but this is a retro community, surely we all know some of the older music is still just as great as when it was fresh, i dont want to date myself here but a lot of early 80's to mid 90's music is still great,


          Who can listen to some journey or even poison, guns and roses, metallica, and not just the old metallica, the brand new metallica album is boss it sounds like they tried to go back to thier roots,

          In short, there is enough awesome music to dig up from the past to listen to for a lifetime, not to mention the interesting parallel between artforms, if music were paintings people would prefer the old classics from the masters. But since its a completely different art form, people are always looking forward instead of back. Not many really great works of music in the recent times, so the whole artforms went downhill. It's sad because the persons who could learn the most from the past are the modern artists.

          just look at rap, originally most rappers where taught to rap clearly so thier vocals could be perceived. But now, some rappers rap with so much speed and slang,poor grammar, loud blaring background riffs, that the actual vocals dont even matter anymore, i used rap as an example, but several other genres are guilty of this as well.


          * edit ,You know what, for the entire downfall of modern music, i blame eminem.

            Honestly, I don't think music is any worse now. Maybe if you just listen to the radio, but that is just a small portion of what's out there.

                I hate to sound like a nerd, truly i do, but here is a thought i'm sure all of us have had. The music market has took a huge hit. with the advent of digital music and mp3's and the ability for anyone with low end technology to rip mp3's , the same really goes for movies and tv as well. is it possible the digital age has changed everything so much , that music movies and tv, just cant keep up with the internet. think about how much money musicians have lost to the ability of people to make perfect digital endless copies from one cd to hundreds of people. with no income involved for the musicians, no box office money for the movie makers. there are places for movies and tv to on the internet aswell. is it possible this digital age is changing everything. possibly killing some artists careers as well..


                Yeah yeah, everything i just said is pretty well commonly known, so why bother saying it at all,

                ( because as i said it I was doing my best rod sterling twilight zone intro impression. so it was really fun to say,, :P)

                  *Labels. Think how much money labels have lost. Because they certainly weren't giving it to the bands before Napster, except as production expenses.

                    Music: 1993
                    TV: 1993
                    Movies: 1993

                    I said heyyyyyyy/ What's going oooooon/ Heyyyyyyyyyyyayayahhooo/ Heyyyyyyayaho, what's going on.

                    Bleh, 1993 was such a boring year. It was a big disappointment at the time because the years leading up to '93 were memorable. Things only went further downhill after '93.

                      Actually, I think music started going downhill in the late 90s when it started being loud and overdramatic like with the Titanic Celine Dion song My Heart Will Go On and Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing. That's when I felt popular music began to change but I still could tolerate it somehow but they overplayed the crap out of these songs and some others to the point where it felt like there wasn't anything else interesting coming out. Then I had MTV and VH1 to remind me of the changes. Brittany Spear's Hit Me Baby One More Time was so oversexualized that I knew the beginning of the end was near but it was still kind of fun to watch. The early 2000s just killed pop music in my eyes when artists like 50 Cent and all the other terrible rappers began clogging the airways. That's when I knew the end arrived.

                        No, it was much earlier than that. Macarena came out a year before My Heart Will Go On. Everyone's answer varies, I guess. Rap died a cruel death in 1993 with the onset of Snoop, Dre and the Wu-Tang Clan.

                          The Macarena was horrible, yes, but there were some good songs on the radio in 1996. No matter the year, there were always good and bad music being played on the radio. For me it really began hitting home in the late 90s where it really got my attention.

                            I admit the mid 90s had a few good songs, but they were far and in between the junk we were all subjected to. Celine Dion was a much better artist at the start of the 1990s. You are correct, there's usually good and bad selections for each year. I just don't listen to anything from '93 onward because it does not measure up to music from 80s and early 1990s (1990 - 1993).

                                Tupac? I thought they wanted to be Dr . Dre by drinking St. Ides, touching Marijuana and wearing Ben Davis shirts.

                                  You must be a lot younger than me. I don't know who Blink 182 is. In 1999, I was actually getting a little nostalgic for the early 1990s.

                                    It's pretty obvious music went down hill after 1944. Why that Glenn Miller was the bees knees, see!

                                      Yeah, Blink 182 was all the place on MTV back in the summer of 1999 when I first heard about them. The song "What's My Age Again" was catchy as heck and the music video was hilarious. I was 12, about to be 13 when I would watch this video. The summer of 1999 was a special time in my life so I always associate them positively to my youth. Good times.
