I like a modern song now and then, but classic rock from the 1960s to the 1980s or early 1990s grunge is the way to go. Most of what comes out now isn't really music. It lacks much of the craft that makes songs that have continued and stable popularity for generations. Nobody will give a flying **** about Gotgay or whatever in ten years (and probably less).

1980s music describes a lot of different genres and experimentation.

Lots of damn good music came out in the 1980s. There's plenty of music from the 1980s I bet you didn't realize is from that era or that you forgot about you enjoy. I guarantee it. Highly doubt tolerable music started being released again once the calendar flipped from December 31, 1989 to January 1, 1990.

No I really can stand 80's music. I'm talking bout the popular **** especially. And I hate hairspray music. I love grunge and 90's alternative music. But if I hear anything by Duran duran I will hang myself with a rusty piece of barbed wire. Ive hear the same songs way too many times.

Although it's been a little bit different for me listening to it now that I know Sia is bisexual.

There's gems in every decade of music. To say that one decade is better/worse than the other is silly. And how can you say that music from today won't be listened to 20-40 years from now, how do you know? For all these "classic" songs from past that still get played, how many have been lost to obscurity? The amount of music getting released is likely to be far more than a couple of decades ago, and with it there is undoubtedly a lot of more "noise", but to sweepingly say that all modern music will not stand the test of time like the "good old tunes" is stretching it. Also being a teen and listening to music made decades before you were born does not make you special, teens have been doing that for decades. And if someone likes what you consider "crap", so what, you both probably get the same feeling when listening to your favourite track.

I just spent the weekend in Houston and we scored pit tickets (pit there only holds about 150) to Iron Maiden through the fan club. Then got drawn for first to the barrier so we were rail. As always, their show was fantastic. Saw Social D this spring and U2 5 times in 5 different cities on their last tour. And a bunch of other bands. But Maiden....it is the Bee's Knees.

Live is the best way to enjoy most music. For me at least. I remember seeing u2 for the first time at the Aragon back in 83. Almost missed my HS graduation for the show and it was totally worth it. Haven't missed one of their tours since. Not really any bands around that have what U2, PJ and the like have.

Yeah, I'd love to see Pearl Jam again, U2 as well. Saw U2 on the Zoo TV tour, Pearl Jam on Vitalogy tour. Pearl Jam is definitely my most wanted to see again, would pay big for good seats.

PJ hasn't had an extensive US tour in something like 6 years. Last time I saw them was there in Chicago on their tour of the self titled album. Would love to see them again but they haven't made it to Minny since then. I used to chub over Radiohead but was able to see them during their peak. So I would be disappointed now as the last album sucked. Seems they forgot what a guitar is for.

I like anarchy for 2-3 hours and the fun of live music. And I meet friends from all over the world at shows from the FC. If I wanted a sterile environment for music I would stay home. For me, being a fan of a band is like being a fan of a team. I will go to their shows/games. I bet you hate sporting events because everyone thinks they can play better than those on the ice/field.

also I love the lyrics to creep. Alternative music in general is easy to relate to. Currently I love this Marcy playground song but I dont think I should say the name of it :S

Fantastic tune.

Me too.

Being a studio musician is all well and good, but music is a performance art. For me, studio music is missing half the performance. Especially for bands/artists that tend to improvise in their concerts.

To that end, RHCP (with Frusciante) is one of the greatest bands I've ever seen live. They do a lot of improvising in every single show, and it's amazing. One day, I'll make it to a Motorpsycho concert, since I've heard they're some of the best at the concert experience.

Also to that end, I can't handle most rap concerts. It tends to be the same beat, but a significantly worse vocal performance. Kanye West and Jay-Z's tour being the only exception to that I've ever seen. They really switched it up, and it was fantastic.

The Hawks often play Public Service Announcement by Jay-Z when they are warming up before the game. Sounds sick.

Don't get me wrong. I like linkin park but I think they are extreamly over rated. Plus I hate it when they scream. I hate screaming in general.
