My music teacher brought up a good point the other day. When you study music history you study the diffrent eras, such as the classical era, romantic era, and the jazz era. In 100's of years what do you think todays era will be called? With all the different genres of music today, which one will people remember?

The Hip-Hop Era.

This thread is pretty bad. Please tell me how bands like:

Grizzly Bear
Animal Collective
Sleater-Kinney
Spoon
Broken Social scene
Stars
Wolf Parade

etc.

are inferior to music from other generations.

Techno era? Not in reference to the genre, but in reference to how nowadays is when technology is really taking off. I mean twenty years ago almost no one had a computer, and now you plug a laptop in a coffee shop.

The only one of those I've heard is the Animal Collective, and they're ****ing horrible.
Not a patch on Beethoven or Mozart.

And like I said, this era has already been dubbed as Popular Music.

I think that since a certain point in the past, everything - in all fields - has been lumped together as "the Modern Era." In the case of music, I think the modern era begins around Elvis.

Well, considering Beethoven and Mozart are one artist/composer representing their respective eras I hardly see how you can draw a comparison. Was their no bad classical music from those time periods? Do we even have the historical resources to answer that question? Unlikely. And Animal Collective are far from horrible. Hit and Miss, yes. Their hits are probably the best of the decade though, although I probably wouldn't be able to convince you on that point. Either way, considering some of the bands I listed are representative of the bands who may stand the test of time from our era I think they should be acknowledged before said era is dismissed.

you could call it the homemade era. B/c so much music is either donw with computers as the instrument, or recorded at home. Which has definately opened it up for alot of ppl, but also has let anybody with a keyboard become famous. And some of em actually have. Or, you could call it the simpleton's era, b/c so much music has been robbed of its complexity. If you look at classic jazz, classical orchestral, or even classic rock, it was at many times very well-constructed and complicated. But now, things have been sooo stripped-down, all you really need to be called "good" is the ability to speak.

Stop saying tht!

Popular Music refers to the fact its is the mainstream and what is popular today

In the future popular music will be what they call their own preferences hence the need for this thread!

My point being that those bands may stand the test of time to you, but not to others.

Bands/artists that will be the most referenced from this area are most likely off the top of my head, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Madonna etc. They will all stand the test of time for this era for their influences on the mainstream and overall popularity.

This era is the best era of music. If you disagree then why are you even on this website at all?

And why do people think past eras are only comprised of classical music?
And why do people think there is no significant classical music in this era? I'm willing to bet that more classical music has been composed in the last 80 years, than there was in 300+ years before that.
Film and television have led to that; everything as a soundtrack, plus the fact that there are simply billions more people to compose the music.
Also, the classical music of our day is hardly any worse than it used to be. Hans Zimmer (The Thin Red Line/Pearl Harbour soundtracks etc.) creates some awesome music that I'd much rather listen to over Mozart and Beethoven (not that they aren't good too).

They dont you failface. There is only one era of classical music.

Unless youre closed minded and think Baroque, romantic etc count as classical. In which case you fail.

Also this is only western music...

*sigh*

That's the logical way of thinking, but alas, you are wrong.

Popular Music takes its' name from the 'Popular' form in songwriting specific to the last 50 years or whatever of being commonly comprised of verse, chorus and bridge sections. No other era has ever been christened as being Popular in its time according to the ancient music books I've read, and I tend to trust them more than I trust random Pit-goers.
