I remember growing up having all kinds of music that you had that was 'important' to listen to (The Clash, Springsteen, U2, Talking Heads, etc.). Huge swings in music landscapes like punk and grunge. Now....just a lot of the same old boring stuff to be quite honest though I really like Muse and M83. Bands like Tool are not hitting anymore which is unfortunate. They are getting up there in the 40's too and are losing the drive. We are in a 'disco-like' era right now.

There is no 'discovering' a band and having them work by putting out quality music every 12-18 months. Now a working band is every 3-5 years for music. Just a different musical landscape that is tough to get into.

Saw Springsteen for the 20th+ time last night and he was still very good. 3+ hours as well. Going again tonight. Bands now are mostly lazy...except for metal. Still love that metal!
