I’m gonna be honest with you – today’s music sucks. Correction: today’s top hits suck. Music was better when we were younger. Part of that is because, naturally, we have emotional ties to the lives we led before we were adults, including the pop culture we consumed.
But part of it (the larger part) is because music actually was better back then. I’m talking blink-182, 3 Doors Down, Third Eye Blind. Maybe throw in some Hybrid Theory and Yourself Or Someone Like You.
Let’s even bring in the Backstreet Boys. Don’t laugh, they had some serious harmony. At least that’s what I always told my dad to justify me listening to them.
This is the music of the late 90s and early 2000s. This is our music.
