I miss the 90's
    #3538560 - 12/24/04 11:22 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I remember in the 80's, listening to the radio and thinking:
"If this is what music is, then music really sucks."

Back then it was all hair metal and trashy euro-pop. I remember turning on the radio and hearing whack shit like Duran duran, Depeche Mode, INXS, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Ratt, Poison, etc...

Then in like 1992, I was like 12 or 13, and some kid brought Pearl Jam's first CD to school and I thought it was kind of OK.

Then all the sudden all this badass music came out of nowhere: Red Hot chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Sublime, Candlebox, Offspring, Tool, Blind Melon, and of course Nirvana hit it really big.

Even hip hop was better back then. It went from whack 80's shit like Will smith and the Fat boys to Biggie, Tupac, Cube, Dre, and Snoop.

For a single shining moment it seemed like my taste and the world's taste was in synch. All this tight music was on the radio and everyone liked it. Compared to the 80's, the 90's were a breath of fresh air!

I feel sorry for the 13 year old kid these days. It seems that music has reverted back to its 1980's state of general overproduced undertalented crappiness.

WTF happened?

INXS are cool and some Duran Duran is cool. The Smashing Pumpkins rocked (especially Jimmy Chamberlain), but most of the early 90's especially grunge other than Alice In Chains (who were more metal/punk) and the Melvins was pretty generic and shitty. compared to 80's hair metal (not underground death/doom/thrash metal) I guess it was a breath of fresh air. whatever, I consider a lot of the underground music these days to be a ton better than 80's/90's music. it's just how much you dig for good shit. of course, the popular music now is terrible compared to past generations. I think the record execs are just making a joke of seeing how much shitty music they can crank out these days to see if people will like it. so, when something a little less generic comes out in a few years it'll seem amazing compared to the crop of shitty artists that pass for popular music these days. anyway...yeah, there has been great music from every generation that usually goes under the radar of most people. so, whatever.

thats the thing, man

there's good music coming out today, but I feel like a total outcast for listening to it because its not popular at all.

back in the day, they actually played good shit ON THE RADIO, and everyone was feelin the vibe. It was like: "Wow, I actually like what everyone else likes for a change! I dont have to hide my musical taste from people anymore! Sweet!"

yeah, I'm only 20 but I gave up listening to the radio long ago because they weren't playing shit that satisfied me..even college radio. there is a good jazz radio station here, but jazz doesn't always have be amazing or "with the times" so I can enjoy it and not feel guilty for having to like shitty popular stuff.

I just use the Internet to find good artists these days and buy the albums and spread the word to support them and hope other people catch on. radio = dead to me.

The Chili Peppers come out of the 80s. I first saw them in 1987 in Panama City right after the release of Uplift Mofo Party Plan. Other bands I enjoyed in the 80s included The Cure, The Beastie Boys, Metallica, and Jane's Addiction, just to name a few. However, overall, my music collection during that time consisted mostly of bands that came out of the 60s/70s- the dead, floyd, the doors, etc. Hey, at least we had the dead still touring time to time.

a lot of peopl blame 90's grunge for fucking up metal, but I blame the producers and the bands themselves.

Metallica didnt have to change. I liked them the way they were. But I guess they felt pressured by the alternative scene and they changed their style, which was whack

I remember listening to an interview with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth about how when they went to record Youthanasia in the mid-90's, the record label made them work with some producer who handed them a Smashing Pumpkins CD and said: "You should try to sound more like these guys." That's fuckin whack.

As usual, the corporate dickheads fucked everything up.

Yeah, Duran Duran did have some cool stuff that I still like. INXS was great for concerts, particularly for the chicks that would hang out at them.

yeah, I listened to a lot of Doors and Floyd back then, too, but that music just didn't feel like it belonged to me at all. It wasn't unique to my generation. That music was like the remnants of a failed revolution. And, worst of all, my parents liked it too.

Some of Depeche Mode and INXS's stuff was OK, but I still think the majority of it sucked. The only popular bands that came out in the 80's that I really liked were Nine Inch Nails, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica. (edit: and Ministry!)

I know Chili peppers came out in the 80's, but the first songs I heard by them that I really liked were "Soul to Squeeze" and "Under the Bridge".

I lived in the sheltered suburbs back then, so I didn't hear the great punk coming out in the 80's (Dead Kennedy's, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, etc...) until the 90's, and that was mainly because of Nirvana always plugging those bands to ignorant suburban kids like me.

I feel the same way about the 80s really. Like you in the 90s, I did most of my growing up in the 80s.

Nah, the Doors, and particularly Floyd, are multi-generational. Remember, The Wall was released in late 79. I saw the movie in the theatre sometime in that year or in 80. I was only like 10 or 11 years old and went with my sister and her friends. I had no idea what psychedelics were, but the movie was a trip still.

OK, but all that said, I'm not defending the music of the 80s. It overall sucked. The acid sure was good though. In 1985 I could get a sheet for like 80 bucks. Anyone getting that today?

the beatles were a boy band who popularized the meaningless 3 minute pop song. Think about it.

I remember buying acid for a dollar a hit in the 90's, and it seemed like EVERYONE had a sheet at all times.

now I'm payin $400 a vial for some lavendar/amber crystal, which isn't nearly as good as all the Silver crystal and needlepoint that was going around in the 90's.

Hmm no. They were a group who revolutionised music. They played their own instruments, wrote their own songs. How can you call Beatles songs meaningless?

up to a point, their songs were pretty meaningless. "I wanna hold your hand" seems to me to be the same kind of song as the backstreet boys and Insync would write

The Mahareshi days were when the beatles came out with some good stuff, but I just cant take it seriously considering that they all sold the fuck out hard core. How am I supposed to take "All you need is love" seriously when the people who wrote it were suing eachother over royalties 20 years later?
