It amazes me that 8 years into the 21st Century the first new material will come out that is Queen related, that it will be only half of Queen(Brian and Roger) with a veteran great on vocals(Paul) and that I would bet at 20 dollars to winning only 1 odds that it will absolutely smoke the best up to then album of the new millenium. This just as how Innuendo smoked the 90's, Made In Heaven right behind it. Nothing today can match Queen, nor come anywhere close.

Most modern music just sucks. That's final.

Something tells me you need to start listening to other music that isn't Queen or what's considered popular in modern society. There's more music to be found in great indie bands like Yo La Tengo, Apostle of Hustle, Stars, The Decemberists, and so forth. There is excellent music out there - you just need to find it.

Have you ever seen my music list? Yeah, I think I listen to enough. I have gone WAYYYYYYYYYY beyond Queen. And I did listen to modern music. It's all the same. It all sucks. Like you.

There may be some good bands (Franz Ferdinand, Wolfmother, Nickleback, Jet etc.) but there are very few. It is all the same. There are particular songs that I like, but they cant compare with the older bands. Take Iron Maiden for instance, they'e been going for over twenty years, and they write better rock than a majority of modern stuff put together. And when Queen's album comes out, I rekon here in Western Oz, in my little dump of an area, they'll smash through the charts. The reason that so many bands of yesteryear are coming back together is because modern music fans are now looking back to the days when rock was king and not all this rap bolloks that clogs the airwaves. Yep, I rekon Queen's knew album will remind the world what they've been missing all these years. =)

Oh my golly! I have actually seen Yo La Tengo! They came and played at my university like 8 years ago or something. Cant remember anything about them, just the name.

As for the topic poster, don't be dissing the nineties - that was a pretty good decade for rock music. Had a bit of a revival after the poppy danceness of the 80s.

Yes it would help if you listened to another band other than queen.

I recommend Queen's of the Stone Age - Song's for the Deaf as the definitive post 2000 rock album so far.

You might consider checking out Radiohead and Nirvana - Ive heard they're not too shabby (just quietly).

And there are tons of good indie bands that u never hear on the RNB-soaked radio. Explore.

I like AmeriQueen's threads. They always state the obvious; that is.. they offer the most obviously flawed statement available - you always know where you stand.

I can't abide the radio most days, there's shit all on... but you've got golf balls in your ears if you can say with a straight face that nothing good has been made in 8 years. Sheesh...

To say all modern music sucks isn't quite true.

Pussycat dolls is a very good band for example :)

It is true though, that it has become harder to come by than it used to be. Reason? Small labels are the only record companies that tend to invest in truly new talent, and they've nearly all been pushed from the market by big money-grubbing multinationals.

I feel a little sheepish by agreeing that a large portion of todays music sucks compared to the 70's (because I'm 42 years old-once one starts saying "music today isn't as good as when I was 18" then you've officially become an old fart), but there were so many wonderful choices of great bands putting out good albums. Jethro Tull, Wings, Zeppelin, QUEEN...and no rap...I just can't imagine todays average 18 year old 34 years from now saying "Man, this music today sucks, just give some good old (insert a currently popular band like Coldplay)". Most of todays popular bands won't have the shelf life of Queen, Pink Floyd, the Who etc, you know what I mean?

I think I agree with that, Bob, but it's difficult to say. I remember my dad telling me in the 70s that artists like Queen, Elton John, etc. wouldn't be around like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. But they did make it that far. So a group like Green Day, 16 years in with their current line-up, is 2 or 3 albums away from a quarter of century, and still super popular. The good groups will stand the test of time, and will always make it. I believe that there is lots of goods music as Lester says, and it's harder to find these days, but overall, "popular" music is beyond woeful these days, and has been for about 15 years.


You know, good times are now.

I don't recall even addressing you at all in my reply, which was directed toward the OP, not toward you, so thank you very much for playing, but please try again. However, you seemed so certain that all modern music sucks, and that's final, so if you want to live in your deep hole underground and continue to dismiss differing opinions, then more power to you. Just don't come crawling back to the surface to us normal people when you're laughed out of your hole, though.

Absolutely. There's more care for the artist in the indie labels, whereas on the major labels, all they care about is money and figures: if you don't sell a certain amount, you're immediately dropped. It's hard to fault them for this, because they're in the business to make money, but this kind of approach also stifles artistic creativity, whereas indie labels thrive on it and encourage it.
