Old school as in 70's-80's. And yes i know this probably has its place in the forum besides the pit, but the pit just has more "traffic". So the question herein is Old School Music or Modern Music, which do you prefer? No specific Genre.

Guitars, Synths, and reverb, or Bass, auto tuners, and drum pads?

Real stereo mixings for real speakers or mp3's mixed for 2 headphones?

Side question: Vinyl records, cassettes, cds, or mp3's?

Me? Im an old school guy, i like reverb on my drums, mids in my guitars, and just a good raunchy bass line. Haha.

Be as biased as possible!

I'm not biased in terms of when or how it was recorded.
I'm getting kind of tired of the whole "retro" thing. People need to get over the fact that just because something is old doesn't mean it's better. There are bands that try to recreate something that happened before they were even born, but they end up sounding like inferior copies of popular bands.

I think Break on through (To the other side) by The Doors has to be one of the coolest songs of all time.

I do probably prefer old school to modern, however good ol' Gaslight Anthem sound Old School and are modern

Old school, new school, special school, shoe school, black school, white school, all the schools can't compete with the best school.

My School.

I like a lot of different stuff. Mostly I listen to stuff that is old-school, whether it's Carole King, Hindustani classical music, old-time Appalachian music or Mozart. Of course old-school embodies a lot more music than modern does by it's very nature. But there is some new stuff I like as well: Gin Wigmore, Avett Brothers, Jack White, some post-rock stuff like Earth and Explosions In The Sky

also, I love vinyl and collect it, but by far most of my music is in mp3 format. I also have CD's and even though I mostly get them to put onto itunes, I'm using them a lot lately because the cable in my car to play my iphone is broken.

I'll give anything a go but I don't like the dadrock sort of stuff you're talking about. In rock and metal music, the production quality is important for me and there's very little from those genres before the early 90s that I find listenable.
That's not to say I don't enjoy any "old school" music at all. There's plenty of jazz and fusion and plenty of other things from ages ago that's fine.

When i was around 15-17 i was one of those pretentious guys with long unkempt hair that considered everything not recorded in the 70's as shit. Now i mostly listen to modern music. I can't really say why but older music just doesn't do much for me these days. I can't relate to it for some reason.

80's Glam rock is what I relate to the most, and also 80's Thrash, to a degree. Crank the mids, shred until the fretboard catches fire, pound the living shit out of those drums, have the fattest, juciest bass lines known to man, and you sir have one ****in' badass band.

I can't really relate to a lot of the newer metal bands like BVB or ETF. I've felt all of the emotion that they sing about, but it's just so BORING to me.

Who cares when it was made. Old School or new school, if its good its good.

I don't like a band or artist because of the production date, I like 'em because of what they put out, no matter the time period.

Old school. Listen to some Zeppelin, Queen, or Who live recordings and you hear something amazing happen. It just seems to be missing even in the best newer stuff.

I like this too, but the '70s & '80s are hardly the only decade to have music that fits this description.

If it's newer than Robert Johnson I just don't see the point TBH. That's about when musical creativity died.

Generally I prefer newer music, but the music I like has only been around for about 25 years, So It really doesn't count as "old school."

I don't think I could sit through a Zeppelin or The Who concert without being incredibly bored. I don't think you could find blander music than most 'classic rock'.

I enjoy classic rock. Much of what I listen to is older than that, though, and much of it is newer.
