so many amazing bands that bring back so many memories from my childhood. I would say "rock and roll is dead", but I would say that the crap on the radio is complete garbage these days. there are tons of underground bands out there making amazing music, and with the exposure to youtube and social media they are easier to find than ever. I love that about social media. I can listen to all these awesome bands I've never heard of before. The battle of mainstream vs niche music is an argument we can have for hours, but I will agree that nothing mainstream in rock these days is really worth listening too. I think that music as a whole on the radio has homogenized into this weird pop sounding crap and all genres are running together. The actual pop artists are actually pretty good, but anything that deviates away from that has a lost identity that is hard to listen too.

As far as rock music that I love. It begins with Black Sabbath and ends with Pantera. I would argue both of these bands are incredible, and have put out countless songs that kick your teeth in. Pantera is probably my favorite band to listen to over the past 10 years, and the more I listen to them the better they get. On December 8, 2004 the world was robbed of one of the greatest musicians to ever play. Dimebag Darrell's ability to crunch and shred on a guitar belligerently drunk on the daily without missing a single note is that of legend.

When I listen to radio, I always jump around. In my presets I have a few rock stations, a couple university stations, a couple classical, and one country. I haven't listened to country in a while, so I put it on a few days back and have been listening since then. WTF happened?! Every other song I wouldn't even call country, more like pop rap sung with a southern accent. One of the things I always liked about country is the prominence and clarity of the instruments. This stuff sounds like a dance club bass with some vague sounds that could be just about anything in the background and hip hop style vocals over everything. Seriously? HH89 is right about all the genres blending together, and it sounds like sh!t. You know this is just a money grab on the part of the record companies and the performers (I refuse to call them artists) who go along with it. What's next, rap invading classical music?

Rock and roll could be dead because all the good lyrics and ideas and riffs have been taken up and done already. Or maybe there is good music out there but just not commercialized anymore because nobody's going into stores buying cassettes and CDs anymore and what's the marketability?

One thing is for sure we are running out of music I know on a long weekend with friends and family at the cabin by the end of the weekend we've already listened to just about everything you can think of and I'm pretty sick of almost everything. I don't really need to hear another song from the Eagles Steve Miller Band or Tom Petty ever again in my life I've already heard them enough.

Also Disturbed Sound of Silence may have single-handedly took down any hope of new generation of Music being good.

There's no such thing as all good musical riffs have been taken. They thought the same thing back in Mozart's day when Vivaldi, Bach, and Haydn had already produced thousands of 'greatest hits'. There are always new combinations of notes and sounds to be discovered, and that is that true magic of music. I agree that music at the top of the charts is total garbage. So, you have to look at the nooks and crannies - local singer songwriters, blues/country artists, and  local rock bands. I hear some good stuff on my Philly pub radio station WXPN out of U of Penn. Also, older rockers are still making some good music - John Mayer keeps writing new songs and has gone back to actually showcasing his guitar skills, and I recently saw a performance by Jeff Beck where he highlights this killer female bass player and their performance blew my mind. Austin City Limits comes up with some ear catching acts. But, these days it actually takes work, you can't just turn on your top 40 station and expect to hear decent music. Back when I was young, I did that and heard Beatles and Don McLean and Bob Dylan. Now, it's 50 J Stomp and the Club Beats or some garbage...(I just made that up...)

My understanding is many music companies now use computer algorithms to establish whether a song has "hit potential."  Which might explain the leak of pop into country music. It also may explain why many new artists don't write their own music.

I cannot confirm this, but think about the run of the mill pop performer who checks all the boxes, and does not write their own music.

I believe it to be true. And perhaps the writer writes the song then they test it using computer expectations, and then try to sell it to Ariana Grande, et. al.

Rolling stone list Smells Like teen Spirit as the 9th greatest rock song of all time
But for anyone growing up in the 90's its #1
The song single handedley killed off all the the awful 80's hair bands and ushered in a whole new era of rock
It brought alternative music to the mainstream

I grew up in the 90s but it's not even one of nirvanas best songs. I like nirvana, but it's probably the worst song on that album. Kurt Cobain has always been a favorite of mine, and the world was robbed of his genius when courtney love murdered him.

I believe his best work was still to come

One of my more memorable recent concerts was about 10 yrs ago (I'm old). Chris Cornell strolled out on stage, put his foot up on a monitor smiling like 'you people better get ready for this', and then they launched into Cochise. Every hair on my body stood up. I felt like the guy in that old commercial listening to a Sony sound system where the music made his hair flow back. Between Cornell and Morrello it was an over the top sonic experience. I always felt Audioslave was much better sounding than Rage or Soundgarden.

Not to nitpick your point TTB.   Do you mean the Maxell print ad?  Nobody's hair flowed back while listening to a Sony rig.  Classic JBL L100 speaker also.

Yeah that's the one. How did you find that? It's funny how time distorts things. I do remember that Maxell made some of the best tape cassettes. The wheels actually had bearings and the density of metal particles was really high or some such technical garble.

Speaking of vintage sound stuff, I have been looking at refurbished vintage stereo receivers. Man those things were so sexy with the stainless face and weighted flywheel tuners. And matched with a pair of solid 3-way speakers like the JBLs you mentioned (I had a pair of rock solid Advents), that analog sound was much richer and warmer than the modern digital sound. Same thing with guitar amps, digital sucks. I think I will pull the trigger on this.

Analog >>> Digital.  Absent the spilt beer and smokey haze buildup in the grooves.  

Sounds very much like you're describing the classic Marantz receivers.  Had a Marantz 2275 (circa 1974), brushed face, "flywheel" tuning, ensconced in a nice walnut case.  Thing of beauty.  Stellar sound also.  Wired up to a pair of Rectilinear IIIa floor standers.  Had that setup for 10 years until some SOB broke into my house and stole my rig.  Still furious about it!!!  The replacement Yamaha/Klipsch setup never sounded as good.  Vintage audio equipment seems to be priced at a premium these days.  Once checked on a vintage replacement to the Marantz.  Whoa, almost as much as what I paid for it new BITD.  

Advents.  Absolutely rock solid.   Great speaker for the money.  And the classic audiophile "in" thing was stacking them.  Had a college housemate that was fully into his stereo gear.  Stacked Advents was what he was rocking.  Driven by a Heathkit Dynaco amp he had built.  We had quality house parties blasting his setup.  Compared to the typical poor college student's low-fi stereo.  Crappy Realistic receiver wired to Utah speakers.

Vintage gear for the old school analog listening room.  An integrated amp.  Solid state, something from Luxman, Marantz, Adcom, early NAD.  Or if you want to move the needle up a bit, a vintage C-J tube integrated.  Driving a pair of B & W CDM 1 monitors (1nt's if you got deeper pockets).  Good value if you can find a pair.  And Thorens/681E for spinning the vinyl.

Loudpeakers are like golf clubs.  Everyone will have differing opinions on what is "best".  But its the midrange that counts.

Smells Like Teen Spirit

/thread

for real? dear god.

Rolling stone list Smells Like teen Spirit as the 9th greatest rock song of all time
But for anyone growing up in the 90's its #1
The song single handedley killed off all the the awful 80's hair bands and ushered in a whole new era of rock
It brought alternative music to the mainstream
Seriously? I'm trying to think of any 90's bands that were even good. I'd take Whitesnake over Nirvana (somewhat sarcastically) but I hate 90's music. When I think of 90's music it the whole decade sounds like the spin doctors and hootie and the blowfish yuck.
Anything after 92 is garbage. If your under 40 you really didn't experience the 80's.
