Iron Maiden are where they've always been and they are still going strong. To be honest, I don't want billions of kids who don't know musicianship and proper music watching their music videos. I'm happy to leave them to their easily digestable formulaic generic pop hits. Let a few of the lucky ones find Iron Maiden when their tastes mature and they go searching for authentic music.
I say this as someone who doesn't care for pretty much anything mainstream: get over yourself. This music is for tweens & young teens, which is why it dominates YouTube. There is plenty of good music today, but it's not what tweens listen to, because tweens have always liked and will always like cheesy, mass-marketed stuff. Every generation detests the culture of the one that follows it. Your parents probably think what you like is stupid, and their parents thought the Beatles were stupid. Katy Perry's music is terrible...but so what? You really resent 13-year-old girls dancing to it in their bedrooms? This is somehow a problem for you? Let them have a little fun. There will always be someone who can look down on what you enjoy. Maybe instead you just let people enjoy themselves.
In your opinion, what you call good music is good for you, whereas other people would find current music good. You only think your music is 'good' because it is the music from your youth, and it may bring back happy memories. I am 16 years old, and the music I like most is chart music from around 2006 to 2014, although I like some current music too, however I do find that some music recently I haven't enjoyed whatsoever. This is because it isn't similar to the music I listened to when I was younger, therefore it sounds strange and new, not familiar to me, thus I "don't like current music". Keep your opinions to yourself, and don't go spreading hate, there is already enough of that in the world to go around.
I mostly only use YT for looking up old songs I've got in my head for whatever reason, but I do occasionally like to put my baseball cap on sideways and pretend I'm a youngster again...
Faded so now at 3.1 billion and I every single one of these have brown tremendously.
We need an update
It's common to not even feature secondary artists on the record. Usually it's done if they contributed melody vocals, and only very, very occasionally if they didn't (usually only because they are very famous and even then often not). Music is almost always a collaborative process, from writing beats, composing tunes, writing lyrics, mixing, editing, singing, playing instruments, and more.
You could as easily complain that you know who played piano on Love the Way You Lie, or who co-wrote Despacito, but they weren't accepted. One artist is credited for the song. Maybe it shouldn't be that way, but it is.
Personally, I'd love to see King's X on here.
