Honestly, I`ve just kind of lost track of your point? I understand your issue with lyrics in love songs but I`m not sure what that has to do with your original position? You said that all youth today care about are lyrics about my humps (a nearly ten year old song) and one line from a Katy Perry song? But that`s such a sweeping generalization...there are a lot of modern artists with more substantial lyrics, talent and taste isn`t limited by age (obviously, Passin` me by - Pharcyde is a dope song)

"Being versed in many worldly things"

Winner of the most pretentious thing I`ve read today.

Yup, you`re a hipster alright.

"you like Manga"

Are you just basing that off my username? Musuko means "son" in Japanese. What`s that got to do with manga?

By you calling me a hipster, is that suppose to make me feel a certain way? Being versed in many worldly things (i.e. languages, musical pref) is somehow bad (my assumption is purely on how you attempt to subjugate me with your hipster comment)? And by you having an opinion is good, but, me having an opinion is bad when it doesn`t correlate with yours?

"I have no freaking idea what a hipster is"

I doubt that.

"It`s funny that you refer Tolstoy because you assume that is what I am into?"

You took what I said too literally.

And I really don`t care about your music tastes. Why are you telling us? It just smacks of showing off (see "hipster").

I`m well aware of the plastic bag ref from American Beauty, but the point is that the bag made it into a love song... My qualm with the lyrics is that it is in a love/love yourself song...

There are far worse lyrics in songs, but love songs should not be subjected.. now when it comes to physical love, they could put anything they want in it... Rack city was horrid... lol but it`s not about love...

the Buck Cherry - Crazy B*tch was used in a wedding as the bride walked down the isle to express her love for her husband lol to each is own I get that, lol but... like I said, why not just use plastic dog crap in a love song?

I have no freaking idea what a hipster is... I`m not even sure it is worth a Google search...

The Fox song is brilliant because the group touched on something that is rarely done today... originality! They have many songs out which are silly and entertaining, but done in such a way that everyone from the random children at grocery stores who belt out the chorus or the adults who get it stuck in their hear by accident tend to sing it :)

It`s funny that you refer Tolstoy because you assume that is what I am into? FYI (not that you give a ...) my music pref range (just to name a few):

About 7 years ago I was training an an 18 year old kid and we were talking about music. I brought up Guns N` Roses, and he had no idea who they were. I was blown away. Not being able to name a song is one thing, but never even hearing of them, is another. That would be like me never having heard of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones just because they were decades before my time.

All of Musuko42`s comments are so on point right now that I can`t do anything but sit here and clap like a retarded seal.

Hahaha I always thought Katy Perry was referencing this

It`s funny but it not the problem with the youth today. Nirvana was a fad and Cobain`s been dead for 20 years. Us 30+ year olds need to understand that teenagers today didn`t grow up on that music and Cobain isn`t exactly news anymore. As for her wearing a Nirvana t-shirt and not knowing who Cobain is: my wife has a led zeppelin t-shirt but do you think she knows who Jimmy Page is? Hell no. Doesn`t make her the problem with society. It`s the people that post this crap.

"I`m originally from Europe where I was exposed to so many worldly musical aspects where cultures who proclaimed their love via love songs didn`t use plastic bags nor lumps to express their feelings."

*breathes deeply*

Ah, I can SMELL the snooty hipster on you. Smells like smug.

Here`s a clue for you: Not all literature needs to be Tolstoy. Not all music has to expand the mind and enrich your life. Sometimes people want to read a trashy bit of fun where the author`s name is printed on the cover in a larger font than the title. Sometimes people just want to enjoy The Fox and sing hatte hatte hatte ho like lunatics.

And your down-the-nose frown at anything you think doesn`t live up to high artistic merit...oh wow, it must be fun in your world!

"Lastly, your *shudder song* refers to a popular game/saying which was then put into a song. simple."

I`m well aware of that. I posted it to illustrate my point: we remember Hey Jude, but not that song, because we skim what we consider the cream of the crop and remember it, and forget the forgettable songs like that one. And then we compare that cream to EVERYTHING today. It`s unfair to do that.

Good for you, I suppose? Thank you for the lecture on your personal tastes. I am very much improved in the quality of my day from having read it.

"someone of "your" generation wrote"

I`m five years younger than you. We`re of the same generation.

Anyway, you`ve completely ignored or failed to understand my point that every generation thinks the next generation`s musical tastes are terrible, and that today`s music is not worse than yesterday`s music. Just different, and alien to us.

There is no objective "good" music and "bad" music. It`s all subjective.

it was "not getting it" due to the generation gap as it was never made for me?

for the record, my "taste" in music is so diverse that I don;t have a set time frame on what year or generation it was made for, so you proclaiming that I am stuck in some sort of musical time frame is false. I don`t listen to the Beatles, never have... In fact I don`t listen to rock at all, but I am aware of who some of the greats were and what they sung.

I`m originally from Europe where I was exposed to so many worldly musical aspects where cultures who proclaimed their love via love songs didn`t use plastic bags nor lumps to express their feelings.

The point is this, you are attempting to defend artistic expression via miserable lyrics and justify that if someone of "your" generation wrote a love song about plastic dog s**t (and it was sung by all the teenagers,) it would be considered (by your standing on the matter) a great love song. So, whoever criticized it was "not getting it" due to the generation gap as it

Also:

You`re also see things through a filter: you see all the music now, the good and the bad, but you only remember the memorable from the past. You`re comparing the greatest hits from the past against the entirety of the now. That`s not a fair comparison.

For example, this came out in the same year as Hey Jude and made it into the charts in the UK: *shudder*

Ask a young person about the lady lumps, and I`m sure they can defend it just as reasonably as you can Hey Jude.

And then *they* will complain about the music of the next generation, just as the generation prior to us complained about ours, and the generation prior to that complained about theirs. And on and on.

It`s natural. But rather sad that you`re blind to it and just let yourself take part in it.

The next generation`s music is not worse than your generation`s music. It`s just not made for you.

No clue who the girl is. Then again I don`t really know anyone from this generation. I couldn`t even tell you a song that one direction sings or who they are.

I actually had the chance to see Nirvana live in 93`. It would have been the last tour before he died. I was only 13, but we didn`t end up going. I figured I can catch them the next time they were in town. Which of course didn`t happen. My friend called me in april 94 the day we found out. I was really getting into them and we all just watched the unplugged together the first time it aired on MTV. It is amazing to think, that this generation doesn`t even have any concept of this. But then again I wasn`t around for the doors but hopefully she knows who Jim Morrison is.

Just because someone wears a Che shirt they are not suppose to know how evil he was. Same with a Nirvana it is not like they are required to know all about Nirvana. It is just a hipster shirt.

To be fair- and to make us all feel really old- my humps actually came out almost 10 years ago. This girl probably was 5 years old when that song was circulating around haha

the "nah nah nah nah" part which is sung by the Beatles, in unison, which is meant to unify everyone... (like a kumbaya) is considered to be one of the most non descriptive yet moving pieces of music. The "lovely lady lumps" (which I even have trouble typing because it is cringe-worthy) and "have you ever felt like a plastic bag?" lyrics have connected with the youth today.. which is in itself a sad situation since both songs are about loving your self/body.

If you were to ask a person, "Do you ever feel like a plastic bag?" they would walk the other way as fast as they could, in which you could compliment them with, "I want to get love drunk off your humps!!!" and see what they say then... lol

You can`t blame the youth, they obviously weren`t around at that time, or were too young. I could ask a thousand kids who The Ramones are they wear on their shirt and they wouldn`t know.
I didn`t know much about the Beatles, not because I didn`t listen, but because I didn`t care.

That girl is Amanda Todd, committed suicide over blackmail and bullying if I remember correctly - speaking of which, how are they supposed to relate and the knowledge of one but not the other lead to assumption that those who do not know are what is wrong with todays world?

in her defense, kurt cobain was probably already dead for a few years before she was even born. just remember that the things that were important to you when you were young somehow dont seem to matter very much anymore (theres no england now). and theres a chance she got the shirt from an older sister or her parents as a gift. and come on, nirvana does mean something other than a band, and then it has that x-eyed smiley face, thats an awesome shirt even if you dont know who the band was. and while were on the subject of not knowing who celebrities are, i thought kesha was black. you know? that chick who sings tick tock? yeah i was watching her being interviewed on conan and boy was i surprised to see a hot twenty something year old white chick.

Seriously, Cobain hasn`t been in the news during these kids` lifetimes, Amanda Todd has. The implication that they should for some reason not know the name of a girl who`s been all over the news for having killed herself after relentless bullying, is ridiculous.
