What starts out initially sounding like pure crap, because it gets overplayed.

After many years pass, it starts sounding good.
1996: The Spice Girls plays on the radio non-stop.

"Yo tell you what I want what I really really want..."


2010: 14 years after it is released, you hear it on YouTube.

"Yo tell you what I want what I really really want..."

"Ahhh, good old music. They don't make it as good as it was anymore."

From what it means and symbolises in our culture today, 'modern' music is nothing more than commercialised crap worshipped by those that cant comprehend the effort put into REAL music. Modern music is often the work of fat greedy managers churning out the sassy stylised crap in the hopes of increasing their bank balance. On the other hand, you could see it as a global conspiracy wherein the government is acting through the music industry to prevent bands who could deliver important social messages and revolutionary ideas from ever being successful and putting the control of the masses via the government in jeopardy. Your choice. Modern music described in the form above usually appeared after late 2006, and the only bands that dont fall into this category include bands who either started off before the 21st century and have remained successful to this day, or a few notable exceptions such as MGMT, Beach House, and a few other decent bands I have yet to discover. Unfortunately, the current music scene will continue to churn out this garbage and drown out decent bands who could bring forth a new musical revolution etcetera... so unfortunately for now, its here to stay :'(
Dont you just wish music today was made by bombed out rock stars high on drugs with tons of groupies instead of shitty corporate whores and managers who are only in it for the financial gain... pity the underdog, for modern music represents the latter :/

Modern music is about as trash as it comes, it’s like comparing basketball to a good sport. (it’s still part of the same group but no one really wants to talk about it) modern music is so trash that even people like 6ix9ine can make a career from saying random shit, the only closure I now have is that he’s now some black guys bitch. The only people that actually enjoy modern music are Emos, eshays and cruisers. (the last two can be argued to be the same) if you wish to listen to decent music listen to anything before 2000 with some exceptions of course.
