Why Music Isn't as Good Today

Music was more innovative in previous generations and appealed to more people as a result.

I’m disappointed by the music that is being put out today. Although I was born in the weird era between Millenials and Gen Z, I have never felt like I fit into either and nor would I want to. The music that is being made by and for these generations aren’t as rich as music was from 1920’s-2000’s. During this period there was major changes in music: audience and innovation.

Audience was one of the biggest parts of how music changed. The beats of music changed to fit a dancing rhythm and people were expressing themselves because they connected to it. Music was how people could connect to the world, unlike today where you can easily do that over the Internet.

The innovation was also rich because there were so many things that hadn’t been done before. Bands like The Beatles and Queen were doing whatever came to mind and that made them even more famous for it.

I also feel like society’s overall mood was a big factor in this. People were living through big wars and the world was changing so fast around them that music was the only distraction. We of course still have so many problems in this world but the movie industry along with the Internet are so big that we have so many more things to distract us.

I won’t deny that there has been good music put out recently, but none of it captures what music did before. It doesn’t globally unite people like it used to and most of it has pieces of old music in it. I’m hoping that this will change because I would like to experience the world coming together through music.
