I hate to be that old person griping about the young’ins and their idiocy but come the fuck on.
My major beef is with the “celebrities” they look up to. These people seem to believe they are re-inventing music by combining pop, techno, hip-hop and maybe…maybe rock. They’ve bastardized music and turned it into a complete “waaaa-no-one-understands-me-so-fuck-you-I’m-gonna-do-what-I-want-because-I’m-young” genre. I doubt these people could even be “musicians” without a synthesizer. Where is the talent if a computer has to improve your voice? The materialism and style is what really gets me though…it’s just all…so fake. There is no depth…no soul to their music or in how they present themselves.
Can someone please explain to me why all the “cool kids”** are now sporting Vanilla Ice hair? Maybe if parents instilled their kids with higher standards when they were younger we’d avoid turning these polarizing figures into “rock stars” (and I use that word very, very generously). These people only stay famous if you give them money.
If people want to bring the 80’s back bring back the music, but leave the style behind.
Prime examples of shitty taste include Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber.
**Yeah, if cool = materialistic douche
