Reasons Music Back Then Is Better Than Music NowModern music sucks so badly. Miss the old days of The Beatles, Queen, Elvis Presley, and Michael Jackson when there was no Justin Bieber or One Direction or Rebecca Black. Although there are a few good modern artists like Eminem, the rest is crap. And I will be criticizing Justin Bieber and One Direction the most here so if you're a fan of either one of them, please leave and don't give me the jealousy card because I am not jealous.
The Top Ten
Old musicians really used instruments. Today's musicians care more on the singing and I don't think even use instruments.
Compare Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Michael Jackson to Justin Bieber and all of One Direction. Each one of those old artists are 10x better individually than Bieber and all of 1D COMBINED.
It's thanks to the wide use of autotune that any old idiot can get a computer to play the music and enhance the voice for him/her, and not actually try to make music. It's also pretty pointless considering that we notice when a record is autotuned. Because it sounds ridiculous. And the thing that really pisses me off with autotune is how electronic music, which is done without it, is criticised by those who cannot tell the difference. For them, if it's not rock, it's autotuned. - PositronWildhawk
They don't need autotune to be amazing singers.
Compare a song like Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway To Heaven, Imagine, My Sweet Lord, or Thriller to a modern song like Friday, Baby, Live While We're Young, What Makes You Beaultiful, or One Time. The first five songs had good meaning. The last five were songs that have no meaning whatsoever.
Need I say more? Ok, I will. The Beatles wrote most of their songs. They played instruments. To compare them to any modern artists is foolish and is like comparing a Death Star (The Beatles) to a lousy patrol boat. (Modern artists) The Beatles inspired Queen and Nirvana. But they also inspired modern artists like One Direction. The Beatles are legendary.
Biggest-selling musicians of all time.
Most successful act in the history of show business.
Compare a love song from the 50s to the 80s like Love Me Tender, Something, or any other love song from that time and compare it to a modern love song like Baby or As Long As You Love Me. Old love songs are creative and original. Today's love songs, not original.
Need I say more?
Artists like the Beatles, Queen, Elvis, MJ, and The Rolling Stones are legendary. People still listen to them many years later. Artists like Bieber and 1D will be forgotten soon.
