Today's hip tunes. New music that isn't Classic Rock or Jazz!


""I assume you are in your late 20s/early 30s, thus the 80s/90s preference""

Turn 49 next year, - been in "rock-music-groups" since I was in my middle schools. Was living in Leeds shortly after the punk revolution. Which I regard as not a music movement, but a socio-political one. Of course, - that's in dispute, as perhaps its historical importance. I recognize that we always think the best music was when we were 18. And since punk-rock was largely a rebellion against all things 70s, - I guess that that is weight on my head.

Punk Rock used music as a tool to reject the current music, and social values of that time.

In the same sense that John Lydon, Clash, GofF and the Jam were rebellious: Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Bill Haley, were too. Even before Mick Jagger lost perspective and said that the new RS record sounded like Husker Du: (sic), in the late 80s; (the RS actually were "shocking" and rebellious in 1968.

Since HipHop, there is no more rebellion and it's just POP music.

Rock music has been "disposable" for a long time, and in the grand scheme of things, my mind knows that the early 80s were really no better than the music of the early 70s, or mid 50s, - which I find not only distasteful, but distracting. The facts on the ground are that wealthy Record Industry Executives exploited art and artists for their own benefit; and continue to do it; just in different ways. Any chance that I get to hurt them, (and get away with), I will.


"Asylums with doors open wide,
Where people had paid to see inside,
For entertainment they watch his body twist
Behind his eyes he says, 'I still exist.'"
