For me, music plays quite an important part of my life. I like to listen to a lot of under-rated bands which most of you have probably never heard of but I believe have great talent. The music of today is sometimes quite good (mostly, it's just a catchy beat) but the themes are usually pretty meh. I think why the music is popular today is that the radio plays it a lot and then a lot of people think that it's good but mostly it's just because other people will know the songs and they won't be laughed at for listening to it. All the songs usually have, where I live near London, is catchy tunes, there is some talent to be fair but not a lot.
Sorry for the semi-wall of text but I'm just curious on other people's opinions.
