My friends think I'm insane because I refuse to listen to rap/hip-hop. I won't listen to most music that people my age listen to..

Any more evidence that Rolling Stone is completely out of touch?

This fucking article could have been written 15 years ago when I was 16.

As far as the later discussion in this thread goes.
When I was a kid I got into new wave, even though I'm wasn't even sure what 'genre' it was at the time, but I loved The Cars, Flock of Seagulls, Adam Ant etc. all that shit was on MTV back when MTV was good. Then when I was a teenager, hair metal and cock rock ruled the airwaves, so I got into Pink Floyd and Zeppelin and all the old farts. Then rock became good again, if not great in the early 90's with bands across several genres, for the most part, only to go shitty again in the late 90's, for the most part with rap/rock and the like.

I think in the last 5 years there have been a lot of new bands and artists come around that are very good and when books about the history of rock are written 50 years from now, this era will probably get pretty good marks as a whole, but what you can guarantee almost like clockwork is that starting slowly this year, into 2007 and last probably to the end of the decade it's going to SUCK ASS.

Enjoy it while you can.

A musical shit hole. They've been gone nearly two years and we've already got overhyped garbage like Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs clogging up the shelves...roll on Summer is all I can say!

I haven't read through the whole thread, but...the article is kind of stating the obvious. Tons and tons of kids wear Zeppelin/Floyd/Marley/Beatles/Hendrix shirts. And not all, but a lot of people who wear them do listen to these bands. They're pretty popular and "cool" to like (U2 on the other hand are often uncool to like, but who cares).

On the topic of a lot of the shit music today...it's not just bad hip-hop or country, you can avoid those. What drives me insane is the "emo" pop-punk music like Fall out Boy, Panic at the Disco, Hawthorne Heights, etc. Of course everyone is entitled to their own tastes blah blah, but all my friends listen to it and think they're so superior and that U2 are really shitty.

eta- Dark Side of the Moon is the only Floyd album I really listen to, but I don't wear all the shirts or claim to be their biggest fan.

Not all rap/hip-hop is bad. You really shouldn't dismiss entire genres.

^yes, but a majority of what's played on the radio is pretty bad. in my opinion, at least.

Lost for Words is a terrific song off of Division Bell. Who can forget the classic last verse? I don't think they did that one much (if at all) in concert in 1994, at least not the show I saw. I also like Poles Apart and the two instrumentals on that record in addition to the album staples High Hopes and Coming Back to Life. Definitely a high note for Pink Floyd to go out with, and good for Rick Wright to be involved with the songwriting once again for the first time since Wish You Were Here.

I enjoy pretty much every phase of Floyd, but the Water-less days less then the Gilmour-led days.

I'm confused too. It's just the way he phrased it.

LMP, you like pre 1985 Pink Floyd when Waters was in the band more than post 1985 Pink Floyd, right? If not, I completely misread that.
