No, I am not trying to start some thread blasting modern mainstream music. There are some good modern music acts here and there (have to look for them, though) but yeah, I do admit that I think the majority of them suck.

When I say 'old' music, I mean music or songs that came out before you were born. Like the Beatles when the four of them were still together, they were formed in the 60s. Or Michael Jackson before he became freaky. Personally, I was a 90s kid, I grew up with a certain type of music but I do enjoy songs from the 80s and even the 70s. My favorite genre is rock, so I love the bands that have been doing their stuff for decades like KISS, AC/DC, Bon Jovi and the less 'loud' guys. And of course, there's always these guys.



If there's one thing I definitely prefer about older music acts over the more current ones is that the old songs tend to be more optimistic, more uplifting. I dunno, nowadays songs seem to be more about popping guys with a Glock or whining about how a guy is supposed to belong with them or something. Like I said, there are still some good artistes but they are rare. Example, 50 Shades of Grey was a very stupid movie but I kinda like Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do which featured on the soundtrack.

So, anyone? Or do I have to accept that people think it's cool to not like something just because it's 'old'?

Ouch, ouch!!! No need to throw bricks at me!!! I like classical music too including Beethoven, I just didn't mention it. I prefer Franz Liszt though.

Yeah, I live for some good oldies. I know a looot of people who like older music and not just newer music. I mean, you can't ever beat drinking, dancing and singing along to some classics! Right?

I mainly enjoy listening to artist like The B-52’S, Supertramp, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Eddie Money, Jimmy Buffett, Iggy Pop, The Police, ZZ Top, Blondie, and so forth.

I also enjoy an awful lot of punk that started in the mid to late 70's.

Right on. If it isn't something from an anime, most of the music I listen to is from three, four, five decades ago. Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Queen, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and the list goes on.

I listen to some old local music. There once actually used to be lyrical depth in Pakistan/Indian music industry, now it's gone.
[i]"Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!''

Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg... and my arm... even my fingers. The body I've lost... the comrades I've lost... won't stop hurting... It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you? I'm gonna make them give back our past."

My favourite gold mine of music is the late 80s to mid 90s hip hop. Many probably wouldn't consider this music 'old', but seeing as I was born in '96 it fits the criteria. Plus hip hop music has sampling which often results in sounds from the 60s - 80s resurfacing.

Back in college when I'd play Rock Band everyone would always go nuts when the chorus for this song came on. Ah, nostalgia

I think the oldest I get is 1994-1997 electronic music. I don't like anything that isn't electronic.

I have musical depth, clearly.

I hope that last sentence was sarcasm. 1994 isn't old for music, and if electronic music is the only music you listen to, then you're even more close minded than I am, and I didn't think that was possible.

Not old enough for me.
Gimme Andrew Sisters, Bing Crosby, The Ink Spots, or Frank Sinatra then we talk.
