I am truly ashamed to be...

Associated with the music of this generation. I hate that this is the music that I will grow up referring to as "music from my time." I wish we could have legendary artists like the Beatles but instead I have Lady Gaga. I hate it! Anyone agree??

  • I agree... the music isn't as good as it use to be but thankfully I have the right to listen to EVERYTHING, not just the lousy music my generation has been making lately.

  • Dont bash all music till you listen to all genres. I cant stand Lad Gaga. Try listening to some country or pop. They have some great music out there

  • LIsten to a different style of music. Have you tried country music. The artists are tamer than pop. You claim what music defines your time.

  • I prefer alternative - I can't stand hip hop, pop or rap.

  • I like some of the music from now but I agree when it comes to Lady Gaga.. she is just ridiculous all the way around.

  • 1: I can't stand country...I really try but I just can't do it. But I do like Garth Brooks when he was big and some other things I grew up with. I don't like pop because it's either about boyfriends/girlfriends and other stupid shit. I do like alternative though. "They have some great music out there" I don't think so. What you and I think is great is clearly different.

  • I love some of the new music...I'm more of a rock girl though. I love music so much I could probably find a song out of every genre that I can relate to.

  • Music from back in the day was just as sexual, just listen to the words. Led Zep, Ted Nugent, Janice Joplin, Jimi, The Doors, they were very metaphorical when referring to sex. Their parents thought that was garbage. My mom's parents thought the Beatles were evil.I don't mind Lady Gaga, she must have done something right to win Grammy after Grammy. People have to actually buy the records for her to get there.

    I agree for the most part! *I do like Eminem
    I listen to alternative rock, and goth mostly with a little other stuff thrown in
    I hate the messages in a lot of the music on the mainstream radio...seems a LOT of it is about sex or drugs and honestly
    i like music/lyrics with a little more...substance (most of the time!)
    My favorite band is the Cruxshadows- very uplifting, fun and good messages
