...you said it...
Preach it, brother!
I may have to go back and re-read the article, but I thought the point was "recognizability"......not necessarily what the millennials liked to listen to....no? That doesn't take into consideration all of the music from the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's being used in commercials, TV shows, and films. That helps a millennial recognize music that they wouldn't otherwise care anything about. This music is in our social culture's blood......
You are correct, sir. The study concerned itself with recognizability, and what was memorable, NOT preference, despite the article's title. THAT bit was just more pandering to boomers' well-known susceptibility to confirmation bias, I'd guess
We're in an era dominated by big money and mass tastes, but we're also in the best era ever for self-production, self-promotion, and self-distribution of music. There's a ton of great music on YouTube right now.
Well, alright then.....I'm ALL for more pandering to the most indulged generation in my memory.... (sarcasm alert)
I got the biggest kick this Summer, when I rolled into a gas station. Windows rolled down, and blasting Five Finger Death Punch's Hell to Pay, and a kid filling his truck hollered to his buddy, you should hear what that "Old Man was jamming to. I looked around at the 6 or so other cars and saw no Old Man, then I figured it out!! Laughed all the way home!!
Reviving my favorite quote by Theodore Sturgeon:
“90% of everything is crap.”
Statistically, the 60s-90s would have more good music then the 2000-20teens. There was lots of bad music from the 60s-90s - just not much of it reaches anyone’s ears at this point.
bob dylan is still relevant for over fifty years. maybe not a great guitarist but him and his strat have a little history
The headline should read, "Millennials much more open-minded than Boomers." Kids in the '60s and '70s thought a 5-year-old song was an "oldie" and wouldn't be caught listening to it. Xers and Millennials tend to listen much more broadly.
by the way shopping a 66 strat sunburst got a lotta help on this site. got offered 6 grand at guitar world what a joke. people selling a beat guitars for 10 grand
fender experts who is the person to see on east coast to sell a diamond in the rough. has original case and a unaltered 66 fender sunburst tried posting my email but was shut out.
The world needs the next Beatles......it may take a few hundred years for them to get here
hello hello is anyone out there
Whatever they’re being exposed to and subsequently saying they like/love, it’s just surface-skimming and least common denominator crap for the most part.*
It’s also massive marketing machines that base themselves on the Beatles model of never ever ever letting a year go by without yet another anniversary . (See : Queen)
Hate to tell you but people always think that kids/younger folks get exposed to the Beatles totally organically and they just hear them and decide they’re great just like gramps did back in the hippie days.
That’s funny. People rarely know when they’re being marketed to...
* there are no millennials into The Replacements, Flat Duo Jets, Minutemen, Flipper, Husker Du or even The Clash.
>>> But it's also true that there are tons of horrible hits, from all eras, that definitely do not stand up to time. Especially novelty hits like "The Streak" or "Kung Fu Fighting"
If you think those songs are bad, you have no idea what mainstream contemporary music actually sounds like. It's so far beyond what anyone from my generation can even conceive of as bad.
From Wikipedia: "Ed Sheeran 45 million albums and 100 million singles worldwide, making him one of the world's best selling music artists"
This is what Ed Sheeran sounds like:
BTW.....just saw a car commercial (don't remember which brand) that used parts of the Stones' Sympathy For The Devil as its music. Now, I'm no prude....but I AM surprised a huge company would express sympathy for ANYTHING devilish to promote their product.....where are the zealots in this????
i disagree kids will eventually get to the music good music will live for infinitity
R u drunk ?
