I hope I'm not around to hear this.

There will always be real music. You are simply looking in the wrong place. You are under the impression pop music was always "real" music. Sure it was real pop music. Don't allow your ignorance of music to put down music as a whole.

Pop music is a product of advertising agencies. The 3 1/2 minute pop song was invented because it is the perfect length for which to place advertising between.

You have been coerced into liking the music you do by executives.

I wouldn't say I'm ignorant of music. Maybe of what kids are listening to nowadays but, I listen to a wide variety of music from classic rock to reggae to hip hop to country western to Estonian folk metal to....this list goes on and on. I have also played in a variety of bands over the years.

I have not been coerced into liking music by executives. Most of the bands I listen to are not mainstream and are under small labels and over seas (not in the US).

You are making false claims and need to check yourself

Remember that Miley fans will mature and listen to other music too. They may not remember music from their Miley stage, but that's also not the only exposure they'll have. Great musicians tend to stick around for a longer time, so they tend to influence more people. In general, Miley Cirus will be remembered the same way NKOTB are....as an amusing, if not annoying trend.

Yeah, but really shitty bands get remembered all the fucking time in favor of actually talented acts that fade into obscurity.

It's all subjective, though, so I suppose arguing about it is kinda moot. Personally, I think several artists who are absolutely revered were mediocre at best. Hell, I once almost got punched for comparing a well loved band of the 70s to Nickelback.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I'm definitely discussing, not arguing. I was mostly playing DA.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I figured, I wasn't saying you were arguing, I was trying to say that's why I'm not gonna list out the "Legendary" bands that are as bad as Nickelback. It would start a pointless, subjective argument on what good music actually is.

My point is that the actual talent of the musicians is only a small part of who is remembered. The bands that we remember well from previous eras are those who were popular for whatever reason, whether it be a hormonal response (bieber, nkotb, etc, etc, etc), because they were heavily promoted, or because they actually have talent.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.
