I absolutely agree with. It seems to me that today's music is all about butts, boobs, money and other things that are irrelevant. It makes no sense. And the majority of singers do use auto tune.
I like the 80's and early 2000's music. 80's songs were meaningful and had good melodies. Plus, nobody did use auto tune back then.
As for early 00's they remind me of good times.

I feel like the 80's have been "coming back" in recent years, if you will, and in a very big way! Some of the best elements of what made up 80's Prog/Arena/New Age are really showing through in the Alternative scene as of late. It's great!
One thing I would love to see more of though is some actual, Prog/Arena rock but more "modern" sounding. A band that is really capable of pushing some boundaries, giving you chills, and knocking you off your feet with some insane solos, timing and tempo changes... That would be sick. A couple band do come to mind that really (kind of) pull it off, but at the same time they both still kinda miss the mark, in an area or two, in my opinion. The stuff that they put out is still really awesome though, no doubt... don't get me wrong.
