There is good music out there, but I detest a lot of the music that is considered popular nowadays. Popular music is getting more and more artificial in my opinion and is becoming industrially produced, repetitive nonsense.
It is becoming also less about the music and more about the artist-- whether that be as a statement, fashion icon, sex icon, or whatnot. Heck, the music itself has become a statement (it's just kind of like beats headphones. Beats are not that great of headphones for the price but people pay hundreds of dollars to wear it partially for a fashion statement/brand name). As a result, the music itself suffers.
Before it seems like I'm trying to be all special-snowflake and say "I wish I was born in the 90s," I like today's music the best actually. The mainstream stuff from the 90s in my opinion was better than the mainstream stuff nowadays, but I like the modern progressive metal that has developed. The bands I tend to listen to are from within the last 5 years.2
