Top 10 Reasons Why New Music is Better Than Old Music

Reasons why the music of the 21st century is better than music from the 20th century.

The Top Ten

1 Old music is boring

Old music is pure not added to by people in recording studios

Don't confuse boring with original. Mainstream pop is what's boring, not iconic classics.

Not true. Modern pop is way worse. But modern rock is better, sometimes

I can say the same for new music. - Misfire

2 New music is catchier

No! I remember playing Billie Jean on my guitar when I was 7 (I didn't play very well of course)and I still remember my instructor singing 2 4 5 4 which taught me what's notes to play.(I didn't use letter notes because I was a kid.)24542454245242452442525

More new music has gotten stuck in my head than old music. And catchy is better. - Thiefyzheng

Catchier doesn't mean better. - Misfire

And annoyingly talent-less. - XxembermasterxX

4 New music lyrics make better sense

Sure, some old music lyrics doesn't make sense when you first listen, but there is a certain beauty in things you can't really understand, like life, death or love. The lyrics in old songs that aren't really clear have a meaning behind them. This can (in really rare cases) apply to new music. But if its just some guy with gummy worms for hair saying gucci gang over and over again and the majority of new music, it either has no meaning, or their just telling you that they're the kind of people to sell their cars for gas money. If it does have meaning, it probably is a selfish, catty or malicious one.

hell no

New music is just some guy yelling Gucci Gang. - XxembermasterxX

Haha no. - Userguy44

5 You can dance better to new music

Have you heard of Michael Jackson?

This depends...if you do party hard edm,then sure. But do you choose thank u next over thriller?!

I like party EDM music. - Thiefyzheng

Um I am 15, and I would rather dance to Commotion by CCR (anything by them really) then ANYTHING on top 40 pop

6 New music has more songwriters and producers

And that destroys the creativity and talent in the artists themselves...

And why exactly does this prove it's better? - Misfire

7 Old music artists cannot sing

I can say the same for some music artists of today. - Misfire

No, they can! So you're saying Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley, and other music artists of the 20th century can't sing? Well, okay. - TheFourthWorld

These reasons are so bias. - Catacorn

8 Old music artists don't care for their fans

I'd love to see you prove your obviously wrong point.

Ariana Grande wishes death on her fans.
Justin Bieber spits on his fans.
6IX9INE chokes his fans. - I80

How are you sure? - TheFourthWorld

Proof? - Catacorn

9 New music is easier to make

That means we get more artist and more music. - Thiefyzheng

That means artists are talentless. - XxembermasterxX

Wouldn't this technically be a bad thing? - Lucretia - Hermione_Granger220
