I like the older stuff too. My kids roll their eyes, but much of their stuff I don't get. Seems to be a lot of rage, trash talk, booming bass, minimal talent, and no soul. But my folks didn't like the stuff we listened to either:
Eagles, Credence, Stones, America, Neil Young, Leon Russell, Motown. Throw in some Waylon and Willie. My favorite music year was 1971. So that's where this old man is coming from.

Jack Johnson... makes Wayne Brady... look like Malcom X.
Usher.. another head worth poppin. Cher is exceptionally annoying.
Some 90's garbage: Limp Bizkit and pretty much anything 'Nu-Metal' or rap-rockish is f*cking terrible. Korn and all those bands are not even worth a creatively negative comment. They just SUCK.
How did you all forget P-Diddy? I think 50-Cent's talent is... non-existent.
Fleetwood Mac's songs and lyrics are invariably well crafted.
Cepriano, you angry young man... 104.3 has played the same seasonally varying playlists for my entire life. How often do you hear any of the truly good stuff- Janis Joplin, an ENTIRE Pink Floyd song, or maybe THE REPLACEMENTS? Or some Townes Van Zandt? Some more Creedence off of Cosmos, perhaps? Nope. That radio station, and all 'classic rock' radio stations, are just the same old crap marketed to white working class people who crave an alternative to mainstream pop. Come on Tri-State Cracker association... I know you're all smarter than to fall for that marketing tactic, right?
P Diddy, as all rappers, are extrmely lucky dudes with limited talent who prosper from "The Bar Being Set So Low."
However, P-Diddy gets some accolades from me for: Being the general in the East vs. West rap wars. He told them crackers out west to suck it, and he held down the fort. Our waves may suck, but we're so much cooler out on the streets. Plus, the west's posterboy was frickin born and raised in New York and Baltimore.
Those dudes out there need a gang to be bad. The east coast is comprised of individuals and generational drug sets based on the block or immediate neighborhood. We don't wear colors. And you fake-arse bloods in NYC and Trenton need to drop that smack. Take that sh!t back to Piru St in Compton. This is the east side baby, we don't play that stuff. The only gangs allowed out this side is the Latin Kings and the Netas. That's it. Thank you. Remember, when trolling the ghetto for party favors always hit the Puerto Rican sets. Skip the brothers.
Also, during the 90's Puffy appeared on Saturday Night Live playing one of his songs that lifted a Zeppelin riff. I believe the Zep riff was Kasmhir. Don't know what Puffy song it was and don't care. Anywayswho, Mr. Jimmy Page joined him for the performance, and at the end of the song, Puffy bowed to Mr. Page. At least he knows where he really stands in the hierarchy or hier-Archy. So he gets credit for that.

I tell ya, that royals tune is pretty cool. Nice to hear something 'mainstream' that's not materialistic.

Agreed...most new stuff blows. The only albums I have from the last 5 years or so are Phish.
As a lover of classic rock, let me throw this out there. The UK beats this sh!t out of the US when it comes to classic rock. Some examples:
- Bruce Springsteen: AWFUL
- Bob Seger: HORRIBLE
- Tom Petty: TOLERABLE AT BEST
- John Mellencamp: HORRIFIC
- Aerosmith: SUCKFEST
- Lynyrd Skynyrd: GOOD
- Allman Bros: GOOD
- Bob Dylan....ok...he's prolific
- Grateful Dead: do they belong in this list? They're obviously like the best ever.
- The Who: INCREDIBLE
- Led Zeppelin: UNBELIEVABLE
- Pink Floyd: EPIC
- Jethro Tull: MARVELOUS
- Rolling Stones...eh...they're OK.
- Not a fan, but the Beatles
To me, there's no comparison. The UK had the best music until 90's grunge came around. Who else should be on these lists? Does anyone disagree with me? Certainly not...
