We're always talking about how bands USED TO BE good but now they're ****.
This is also goes with TV shows, movies and a lot of other stuff. Why is it that everything that used to be good sucks nowadays.
Is there anything good NOW that will suck in 5 years?

Although in 5 years, people will look back and think that Hannah Montana and the Strokes were really cool, simply by contrast.

Just look hard and you will find modern bands that you will like.


This is true. The decent bands these days don't get the attention that they deserve so you need to look really hard for them

The Strokes ARE cool.


My point exactly - the Strokes are MUCH cooler now than they were in 2001.

The state of TV right now is pretty badass. We have lots of good cable TV shows, plus a new HBO miniseries now and then. Some very good films came out this summer also.

^I wasn't to keen on District 9

I felt it was a very powerful film, but my point is that hating the popular culture of the now has always been in, you just need to stop bitching and look for the good stuff.

Cause we always look back to the better bands of that time era.

Cause you were younger. Every thing you saw felt new to you.

Everything sucks because the world is filled with tards like yourself that sit around on the internets complaining about how much everything sucks now, rather than trying to make a change.

Good thing you were here sitting around on the internet to complain about people sitting around on the internet complaining.

Cause we don't want people to just sit around and complain all day.

Music nowadays is better than any time in history. Same probably goes for film and television.


In other words, STFU.

Or because every band is better when they are new on the scene. Their first albums always beat their older stuff. At least in my opinion and that's all that matters.

a few years ago, you were a demographic that was very desirable to advertisers. namely, children. there are hundreds of shows aimed at children, drawing billions of dollars in revenue for advertisers. therefore, many shows were aimed with exactly you in mind. because children are stupid, and because television and music executives know what they like, shows were made that you were almost guarantied to find entertaining and enjoyable.

however, nowadays youre most likely in a less desirable demographic market, or at least much broader market. therefore, executives and advertisers are not as able to create shows and bands and movies that are custom designed with you in mind. so you are not delivered media that is as entertaining to you.

however, this doesnt mean that everything sucks nowadays. it just means that nothing is given to you directly. great bands/shows/movies are out there, but you have to go to a small amount of effort to find them yourself. if you cant do that, its your own fault.

so in short, everything doesnt suck, you suck.

People who think the past was great have never actually experienced it, in reality it sucked too.

Someone please expand on this.

thats for speaking for us.

i cant stand people who are stuck in the past with music. i can understand listening to it and enjoying it but saying things now suck when they clearly dont, is retarded.

Everything sucks now because we live in a generation where there's nothing left to fight for. There's no use for rebellion against anything. Nowadays, happiness (as defined by society) is directly related to the amount of name brand products you own and the size of your TV. Sorry to say, but it's true.
