I do more or less but there definitely has been bands I discovered but most of them are pre-2000's I just can't stand music today. I guess I have become that old man that hates the shit that kids listen to these days. What about you? do you listen to the same music as you did in High School?

Yes, and I listen to newer stuff and genres I didn't listen to in high school as well. I listen to almost anything now except for thrash/growl metal and dubstep. When I was in high school I listened to grunge, hard rock, and nu metal almost exclusively. Those genres are still some of my favourite to listen to but hard (not really) to find. They don't show up often on top 40.

No, I used to listen to Metal Rock and Old-School Hip-Hop. I don't listen to those genres anymore and now, I listen to Pop and Hip-Hop of today. I used to be unhappy listening to Metal Rock. I believe listening to Pop music makes you happier.

No. In fact I tend to avoid it.

Foo Fighters, Red hot Chili Peppers, Nickelback, Rage Against the Machine, Korn, and so on? Get that shit away from me. Yeah as a teenager that didn't know better and existed in the pre-internet days, what they played on the radio was what I listened to.

But now that I have a choice (thanks, internet!) I can choose what I want to listen to. I mean don't get me wrong, I don't regret listening to the shit I listened to, but my eyes have been opened, is all.

Yes, but also a ton of newer stuff. My genres have gotten smaller though, I used to listen to rock, metal, pop, hip hop, rap, now its mostly just rock and metal.

Yeah, that's honestly the best thing about music these days it's so easy find and listen to any song you ever wanted. Sometimes I like to just chill to a ambient videogame soundtrack while browsing the web.

Pretty much. Rock, metal, 80s/90s pop.

I like some rap from the 90s, but don't really listen to it.

Yeah, it's still pretty much hip hop. My options have shrunk, though, as most hip hop that comes out today is trash. I know that's a common thing to say "today's music sucks", but in comparison to bad music that came out in the 90s, the 2010s have definitely gotten worse.

Nope, in high school I mostly listened to metal and death metal. These days I listen mostly to pop, soul and funk. I'm actually a big fan of Taylor Swift 😄

Not so much. My musical taste expanded quite a bit but I still listen to some of that music when the mood strikes.

I listen to Linkin Park during my Freshman year and so on. Breaking Benjamin, Offspring, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, just about any Rock music that I hardly didn't like. For Hip-Hop was, I enjoy listening to Tupac, Ludacris, and stuff like that from the 90's only.

I've been eclectic since early high school, but as my experience has broadened so have my sources.

People that say "music these days is terrible" have just given up, have stopped looking for something they like.

Music is just as good as it has always been, if not better.

Some of it I do. The music from today.... there is just no comparison.
I often find myself going back because I find it to be better than most stuff out today.

Well, I listened to 60's and 70's classic rock up until high school, then punk/new wave my last 2 years of high school.......but these days I'm coming to the conclusion the late 60's had the very best music of all, most of it psychedelic. I still love my 70's, 80's, and 90's music as well, but the late 60's were a breed apart, a perfect storm.

I mean...only in the late 60's can you get a great psychedelic song like "Porpoise Song" by The Monkees of all people. Mickey Dolenz really did have a great voice for psychedelic music. From the psychedelic comedy movie "Head"

So, sit back, get your weed, and tune in.....

You can find good music yes. But pop did get worse.

Yes, definitely, but I think my musical choices have aged more gracefully since I was into a lot of classic rock, 80's, and even 90's grunge and alternative, etc., but also, I wasn't into bands like Marcy Playground or I guess around college age, Yellowcard, which were kind of one-hit wonders.

Still looking for new music today which is cool and haven't really dug down and settled into listening to the same 20 artists.

Yes I do, but I have also expanded into things I didn't like in High School. Don't care much for new music, but I also don't listen to am/fm radio anymore so I don't get subjected to a lot of new music.

Some of it, yeah.

Actually, two of my my favorite groups are the ones I started listening to and found an interest in early on. For much of my childhood and teenage years I didn't really listen to much music - it wasn't until I was in 10th or 11th grade that I really realized I had musical preferences.

But I guess everytime I think about it, music played a pretty big part of my life from my earliest days. I remember being less than a year old and crawling around my old household, watching and listening to 80's videos on VH1.

My older sister would always buy CDs and listen to MTV and helped influence a lot of my tastes over the years, she is really to thank for introducing me to a lot of great music as it was happening.

I can easily think back to some music I liked in 2006 or some music I liked as recently as 4 years ago and kind of cringe. I think people are kidding themselves a bit if they think they're immune to having poor tastes now lol.

I went through an elitist phase in High school and used to listen to so much Death Metal. I was one of those rap is crap guys.

Now as a 27 year old, I'm listening to heaps of Psychedelic Trance and I do enjoy Hip hop however I'm having a hard time listening to the brutal death metal I used to enjoy in high school which is really ironic.

Kind of. I listened to a lot of angry music back in the day. Then I got away from that and spent a lot of time getting into folk and new folk. Recently, though, I've gone back to some of my old stuff and really gotten into it again. It is strange listening to James Taylor one day, Sex Pistols the next, and Rage Against the Machine the next, but I enjoy it.

Nickelback is horrible, but most of those other bands are awesome, no shame in listening to them. Korn I'm a little split on. I can't decide if I think they're a little too emo and basic with their guitar work, or if they do enough with integrating unconventional instruments and singing methods to make up for it. I've been branching out into playing percussion recently, and I really dig what they do with not just relying on drums and cymbals for their beat. Plus, you know, bagpipes.

@theone86: I think the problem isn't necessarily that I think they are bad, or unskilled, or anything like that. It's just the radio killed it for me. How many times per day can you stand to listen to ADIDAS? Californication? Bulls on Parade?

For me, I can only listen to those songs three times per day for a month or two before I am over them.

I hear them on the radio today? I groan, and then change the song.

It doesn't just stop with the songs of my youth, either. This applies to classics like Led Zepelin, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and so on.

There's a whole lot of great music out there, it's really shitty that radio decides only one or two songs from each performer or group are worthy of air time.

I still listen to some of the stuff I liked in high school, which was mostly punk and metal, but my tastes have broadened quite a bit. Progressive rock and electronica are probably my favorite genres nowadays. Though, as a father of a 4-year old, I'm listening to Disney sound tracks more than anything else. And I'll admit, most of them are pretty good :).

Looking forward to Frozen 2.

That's true, but then again I haven't listened to the actual radio in ages. At most I listen to satellite, and there's always an alternative if something comes on that I'm bored of. Most of the time I just listen to an entire album. And yeah, I do get sick of some albums after a while, but I almost always come back to them. I recently went through a Rage phase after not listening to them for a while and loved it. I can always come back to the artists I really like after taking a break from them. It's sad that radio is dead nowadays. It used to be that DJ's would actually listen to new albums and mix in other songs from the album and B-sides and such with singles, but those days are long gone. David Fricke actually has a show on Sirius XM where he does that, if you can find it on the internet somewhere I'd highly recommend it. Sad, though, that he's like the last woolly mammoth. In his honor:

Considering that my music taste really started to branch off in my middle and high school years after hearing almost nothing but radio friendly oldies ,80s and classic rock in my childhood I'd say that it really has.
