    I am about to make you really upset.


    • Ke$ha's "Tik-Tok" sold more copies than any Beatles single.
    • Flo Rida's "Low" sold as many copies as "Hey Jude."
    • The cast of Glee has had more songs chart than the Beatles.
    In other words, no matter what you think, teenagers today disagree, and spend more money to prove their point than you and your compatriots have.

    In my eyes, the music from the 80s always has been, and always will be, the best music- ever.
    The big hair bands.....more hair the better ~LoL~......that was nice music, nice songs.
    I enjoy listening to a song where I can understand the words that are being sung....some of these songs these days, that the younger generation listens to.....hell I can't make nor tails out of what they're saying~
    I enjoy some of the music played today, but overall.....the 80s music was my favorite~

    Tik Tok was one I can listen to, but it's definitely not going to make my all time favorites list.....I don't like Ke$ha, but I don't like the Beatles either~

    Some of the newer music, is crazy. The Glee shit is stupid to me ~LoL~
    But to each his own.
    I still listen to my huge collection from the 80s....
    Def Lepperd
    Survivor
    Eddie Money
    Loverboy
    Foreignor
    ToTo
    Kiss (yeah, some of that crap is alright)
    Heart
    Pat Benatar
    Air Supply (even tho most gents won't admit they listened to them, I know some who did)
    And the list goes on and on.................

    you sound like you parents -- or somebody's parents. thats what parents in the 60s said about pop music back then. The Beatles were awful to them. Terrible musicians etc. All they could do was scream yeah yeah yeah was the stereotype. Thats what older people always say in any decade. If pop music isnt offending the ears of the older generation it just isnt doing its job.

    Fact is -- there was alot of garbage music in the 60s -- it just didnt endure. You only really focus on the good stuff There always is a lot of bad stuff - and some very good -- at all times and that is the case today

    Thats what I thought too.

    That the Beatles were studio musicians/songwriters who couldn't really perform live.

    Watching clips of their concerts on UTube (after I got DSL) showed me otherwise.

    They could bring it........................

    You can always go back and time and say "so and so was better than so and so". But, what is the point? Music isn't a single thing but a garden of fun and variety. You can't just eat a diet of bread so why would you only want to have a music diet of the Beatles. If some musician is here today and gone tomorrow, so what? Why can't you enjoy them today? I took my daughter to see Justin Bieber. He may be the next great lasting thing or not . So what? I allowed myself to get caught up in her excitement and fun and had a great time at his concert.
    There are tons of good artists today. I think Lady Gaga is tops. She is the most awesome performer i have ever seen and i think she is pure fun. There is some really good country music going on as well. Most people who don't like today's music are just being musical snobs. Open up your ears and partake and enjoy!!
