Nothing - don't mind the old farts who hate anything new...

I love the folks who say electronica is the same over an over - really but the Stones and the Beatles were so vast with their 3-4 instruments? I like them BUT - the Beatles sound pretty much the same - it's not like bands are going to do anything revolutionary with a drum set, bass guitar, electric guitar and singer.

Bottom line is it comes down to what YOU like. I don't really get why people rip into different music or artists. 80s music was considered complete crap during the 80s and now it is held onto as the last good decade of music by most. Too funny.

The same people who whine about Rap not being music because the guy can't sing - but has a bunch of Bob Dylan, Mick jagger, and Leonard Cohen albums makes me sneeze my drink through my nose.

Those three together couldn't hold a sustained noted for 3 bars if you held a gun to their head. They're TERRIBLE singers. So you buy it for their "poetry" well if we're buying it for poetry because it speaks to us and our plights then I don't see how that is ANY different than buying 2Pac for the plight of his fans.

Not sure how this is "bad" music. And it is music and it is JUST as relevant as anything else.

Just like anything - there is good and bad jazz, rock, pop, rap, and trance, house, hip-hop. And that is subjective anyway.
