re: mainstream music

I honestly haven't turned on commercial radio in almost six months. I live in Minnesota, home of all the public radio you can handle. It's either The Current (kind of an indy-rock station by Minnesota Public Radio, almost like a college station without the college), KBEM (public jazz station), or KUMM (my college station from Morris, which I can still get on a feed even though I don't live there anymore). The closest I've come to Clear Channel lately is the Melissa Etheridge concert, which was, of course, sponsored, or course, by the Evil Empire...

edit: anyway, I never really answered the question, did I? No, it's not getting worse. It is just as bad as ever.

I don't pay that much attention to it- but I have an 11 year old sister- who's idea of great music is the crap that is in the Top 40. SO yeah, I'd say that it's awful- although occasionally a gem shines through.

So I go to the toilet in your wicker chair, it's a faux pas.

Don't pay attention

I dont pay attention because I know that anything remotely to do with pop i would gladly burn. Why dont they play sum gud music once in a while on MTV and Radio 1 etc. The only gud 1s r MTV2 Kerrang and Scuzz. Get some music sense you dumb shitheads!

I don't pay much attention to mainstream music, but I think it's gotten worse. These days, it seems like all the bands sound the same, and they can be conveniently grouped into a certain category. For example, there are the "Talkin' 'bout my feelings" metal bands, garage bands, and a few other genres. Bands that actually go out on a limb and do something interesting are getting more and more rare.

At my campus radio station, WCRD, at least 50% of the music we play has to be from the audio vault. A lot of the music is cool, but I seem to get a lot of the mediocre stuff as well.
