When I look back to music to past decades I can always pick out legendary artist of the time starting with the 60's up to the mid 90's but around 98 the start of the boyband era began along with Britney Spears and Nu Metal bands. Ever since then mainstream music has only gotten worst would you agree that this was the starting point of the decline of mainstream music as a whole? or do you see it at another time?
For me personally not only was it the decline of mainstream music but also music in general as a whole. I can find some underground stuff that is decent sure but everything just feels forgettable and meaningless when it comes to music these days the old shit was better. And yes that maybe due to some nostalgia for the late 80's and early to mid 90's music but not all of it can be nostalgia I wasn't even born in the 70's and the rock back then was amazing.
