Forums - Music Discussion - Why does most music made after ~2000 suck?


Do you believe the music industry has gone downhill during the 2000s?

Yes 79 69.91%
No 29 25.66%
Maybe 5 4.42%

Just because you dislike music made after 2000 does not mean it "sucks". For instance, I personally dislike music made in the 50s 60s 70s. I prefer the new genre's of music such as dubstep, drum and bass, and liquid. That does not mean because I don't enjoy listening to older music that it "sucks". Grow up and stop complaining about you not liking music made in the 2000's. Listen to what you like and don't pay attention to what you don't like.

I think pretty much everything since 1900 onwards sucks. Beethoven never gets boring for me.

Here's a question for music fans, how many of these people can you name?


The first picture has Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain in it.

The second, I think is the girl from Blondie.

The third, not sure about this one, I'd say Heart.

The 3rd one is Joan Jett and Cherie Currie.


Music since 2000 doesn't suck.  But radio and popular has indeed fallen hard since then.  The good music just takes more exploration to find.  But with the Internet, it's easier than it ever was.   Go to, type in a genre or group you like and enjoy.

The rEVOLution is not being televised

There is good bands still. I will say a lot of the mainstream sucks but a lot of bands are still good. You all should check out the band Imagine Dragons though. I expect them to be huge eventually.



Yep, I'm mainstream like that.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Good stuff from '00 and up.

Just because you can't find it does not mean it isn't there. You said you are getting "too old", probably meaning you don't use torrent sites as most of the younger generation do. It's a lot easier to find music online than it is at the store. I also hate mainstream music.

Some bands/artists that I love: Mumford and sons, Fun, Anberlin, Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Eminem, Nas, Lupe Fiasco.
