anyone else turned off by newer music?

Im a person who likes music from the early 1900s until now, and many different genres. However I find myself hating the songs I have to hear on the radio everyday or see on tv. It's not that they are bad, I just think they usually are mediocre and overplayed. Usually stuff like club rap, pop country, pop punk, alt rock, nu metal. And honestly being in my 20s most of my friends exclusively listen to that type of music, its just starting to urk me that its all the same and no one listens to anything else (young people that is) I know theres exceptions, just kind of feeling sad sometimes because whats popular now fails to compare to the greatness of what used to be, and many great music acts currently which are not popular. Just wondering if anyone else gets that annoyance with mainstream music that they hear over and over.

I certainly am not a fan of a lot of the recent stuff, but I don't think all of the mainstream stuff is all that bad. Some songs by one Katy Perry (definitely that I Kissed A Girl song) are quite good.

I listen to EDM pretty much exclusively. I listen to newer songs in that genre as well as older ones. As far as pop and rap like you're talking about, yeah I'm not a fan. Everyone in my state is rap and club rap crazy. You can't find a club that plays anything else. It's annoying!! I think most of it sounds the same or just isn't my personal taste. Sadly, not much that can be done aside from wearing earplugs to the club or just not going out. I have XM radio so I just don't listen to those stations in my car.

I don't like much of the newer tunes. Especially since many radio stations play the same 10 songs over and over. That drives me nuts.

I like some of the new alt. rock stuff on the radio. I don't know if it's just here, but Sail by AWOLNATION and some songs by Foster the People are quite prevalent!
