Top 10 Reasons Why Music Before 2010 is Better Than Music After 2010

As everyone with good music taste knows, 100% of music that comes out since 2010 sucks. So let's go over the reasons why music before this horrible decade is better than music from this horrible decade.

The Top Ten

1 The charts actually had talented acts

I wouldn't say so. If you look closely, you'll realise that the quality of music in the top charts was pretty much the same for a long time. - styLIShT

Just the user this site needed. - DCfnaf

You don't pay attention to the full charts. I'd say 2012 was a much better year for music than 2009. - 445956

2 Not as much autotune
3 Most songs weren't overplayed

Songs were overplayed before 2010s. - MrCoolC

4 Every artist sounded different, now every artist sounds the same

If you look at the top charts, it will surely be filled with overrated low quality content. This is just another way of saying that you are too lazy to search for better and creative music. - styLIShT

5 Artists actually put effort into writing songs
6 There weren't as many bad songs
7 It'll be remembered in many years time, unlike now when 0% will be remembered
8 Many things weren't processed in a computer
9 Rock and metal weren't dead

There's a lot more Metal bands in the Billboard 200 than back in the 1990s and even the 2000s. Many of the more notable Death Metal bands today have released albums that have peaked somewhere at the top 50 or near. Other bands like Testament are more impressive, reaching the top 20 and Slayer hit 4th with Repentless.

Also, how is it that bands like Green Day, Metallica, Breaking Benjamin and Slipknot not go unnoticed when they top the charts? Dave Grohl has stated that "Rock seems pretty alive", so there's that. - CrimsonShark

They're still popular I know a good amount of people in real life who like the genres. Also unpopular=/=dead there are still thousands of bands making music and millions of metal-heads out there. - Skullkid755
