        It's just young musicians rediscovering musical styles from before they were born.

        There's plenty of other backward-looking genres these days, like "freak folk" (retreads of Donavan and Incredible String Band) and "alt-country" (a mishmash of country-rock and the Rolling Stones), etc. I have 20-something friends playing pre-WWII country blues, string band and gospel music, rockabilly, 30s swing, 60s garage rock, etc. One local hipster joint specializes in torch/cabaret singers who are younger than my own children and is packed every night.

        So why not a stroll through New Wave and synthpop?

        The grunge revival is next oke:

          See, the thing is, you can't be disappointed by today's pop music if you don't listen to it.

          I am not disappointed.


          Unfortunately this isn't possible for all of us.

                Absolutely. During the early 80's there was the psychedelic/60's revival. The Paisley Underground resulted in a few good bands but why did everyone try to sound like Jim Morrison?

                Then during the horrible hair metal years you were up to your knees in drummers who openly bragged they were improving on Bonham and singers who were total Plant wannabes.

                In the early 90's, every band in the OC and around Berkeley (yeah, I'm going there) believed that they sounded like the Clash by stealing licks from the Buzzcocks. Most ended up sounding like Generation X.

                Yeah, a lot of great musicians started out that way but I'm doing my taxes today so I'm in a ****************ty mood.
                What I lack in quality I make up for in volume...

                ...When I became bankrupt, a guitar was something that you patched into an Evolver so it would go mmmrrreeeeeeploploplop....

                  crystal castles, lady tron etc?


                  Yeah, whats up with this?

                  Today we have this song playing in the radio constantly, and I think I may have just found out why it's playing. Because all the other music is even much worse... At least this has the 80s groove down, while modern music just sounds like mass produced crap that someone threw onto Ipad without much thought. Thank god there still are people who make serious music though...
