I've yet to see a music-based quiz on this site that doesn't have a generous helping of "this isn't real music/this music is rubbish" comments. It's right up there with the whole Turkey/Cyprus Europe vs Asia argument in terms of repetition.

Y'all are gonna hate on me so much for this but I wish One Direction was on here, they had a lot of top hits! Also, you guys can say they're just a "stupid pop bubblegum" boyband, but their management completely controlled them and didn't let them write a lot of their earlier music, plus, all their unpopular music is really beautiful and meaningful and much better than the pop hits their management chose for them, they've inspired countless people to love themselves and be themselves, so anyone hating on them may think that people who like them are the shallow stupid people, but in reality, you guys are the shallow ones for assuming and hating without actually knowing. And I think some of their songs should've been on here (yes, I know Pillowtalk was but I don't count that)

I think music can mean a lot to someone without it being good. I think everyone grew up with certain songs that were special to them and helped them with things. And because certain things resonate with you, you see the song in a whole different light.

Y’all are ignorant. Music is completely subjective. There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ music.
+5
Level 67
Jan 19, 2020
Well, yes and no. As with anything, it's a matter of taste to some degree, but it's pretty close to objective that a meal from a three-star Michelin restaurant is a better meal than a McDonald's Happy Meal, even if a six-year-old doesn't think so. I myself have little patience for people and their "music nowadays is terrible! Wah, wah!" schtick because it's condescending, because most of these people can't play or write music of their own, and because these same whiners always think *their* generation's pop music (whether it be the Beatles, Van Halen, Pearl Jam, or Fall Out Boy) is music's apex. The irony is that classical musicians could likewise scoff at the notion that any of those bands is "real music," but they usually don't because they have truly devoted themselves to music and appreciate its craft. But anyone who says the Stones, Dylan, Queen, (all of whom I love) or any other 20th-century rock act is "real music" compared to classical or jazz is kidding themselves.
+2
Level 53
Sep 14, 2021
You make good points but I don't agree with the comparison between music and food. Food can sometimes be objective. McDonald's doesn't have as many fresh ingredients and is usually rushed, while a Michelin restaurant is the opposite. Music is just sounds. Whether the sound is coming from a physical or digital instrument, they're just sounds. So the way I see it, there is no such thing as a good or bad music.

1. People always will advertise their hatred toward any form of art that is popular that doesn't speak to them. 2. The music industry is objectively declining (this trend started long before covid) - there is a lot less money going around, so there is less variety of artists "making it big," and the artists who are not making it big are making less money compared to previous decades. 3. Genres outside of pop music (which has always been degraded by critics) are getting far less attention than they used to. Yes, it is true that disco music established a lot of poor quality trends, and was despised by a majority of people in that era, but there were a lot of other alternatives at the time. There's still plenty of good music out there, it just takes turning over a few rocks to find it.

A year ago I made a list ranking all the Number #1 hits of the 2010s, so I decided I'd challenge myself by not looking at the hints and just guessed everything blindly. Got 42/67, pretty satisfied, although I missed some big ones (Sia, Miley, Kendrick, LMFAO). I'm surprised almost a quarter of JetPunkers know Rae Sremmurd and how it's spelled, given rap is usually a weak spot for the website overall.

Music taste is always opinion and NEVER fact. Y'all sound like my 50 year old dad talking about how bad modern music is. You just don't like it because it's new; all new music is hated for a while until years later when it becomes appreciated. In the 60s, adults didn't like Elvis Prestly or the Beatles because it was a new kind of music they haven't heard of. In the 80s, adults said that rock music and bands like Led Zeplin or GunsNRoses are a negative influence to kids. In the 2000's, people loved to shit on Britney Spears. Yet today all of these artists are loved and respected for what they brought to the music industry. When y'all say today's music is bad, it doesn't say anything about the music itself. All it says is that you have become OLD AF

I think the main reason why a large portion of people think this decade is 'bad', is because people didn't grow up with it. I was a kid, and these songs are all super nostalgic to me. And 80s music is less interesting (the vast majority)

Not even close. On a technical level Pharrell Williams, Sia and maybe a couple others (I'd put up Gotye and fun., as short as their runs were) have him outclassed as songwriters/producers. As a singer Adele, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and of course Mariah Carey run laps around him. In terms of general acclaim/critical respect he's well liked but no Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna or Adele, and though he's close to the top in terms of sheer popularity he's still galaxies away from Drake or Taylor Swift.
