Music once an art, refined and tasteful, has become Tasteless and trashy over the years and now good music is hard to find in fact now we just repeat old music in a futile attempt to redeem ourselves! I'm not saing that there is no good music left only that it is dieing fast, and worse it may be toolate to save!

I disagree, because there are alot of great songs, you might not know this but music is,in my oppinoin isn't really declining. there are alot of great songs out there that really inspires people.Like for instance take ludacris's song "Runaway Love". As you can hear he is talking about how the world for young women are going through. And most people make songs to entertain these days.

I repeat there are good songs out there but the class is declineing. Compare Bach to Snoop Dogg, or Beethoven with Tim McGraw. Stedy refind sound and Choppy lyrics, pointlss genre, and a soun that only somone who has never heard music can love. I have no hatred towards to days artist and some are tring to save the music, but with songs like "Pu++y Control", "F+++ You Like an Animal", and lyrics like "Rob the Jewlry store an' have them make me a grill.", and "Teenagers Scare the living S++t outta me." How can we clame music is as good as it once was!

i understand your point but think about it for a sec. The most songs dont have choppy lyrics or pontless genre. If you listen to Alicia Keys, she speaks about love,for example,most artist dont sing about those types of things.Some artist sing about thier chidhood. most people sing songs that other people can relate to.but also if you look at gospel they don't sing about that.

Ah you've touched my next point Music is for entertainment so what does that show about American culture? that we want to "Smack that all on the floor"?
or that we "Don't wanna be an American Idoit"? Is that all that's left "Jesus of Suburbia" and "Little Maggots", "Gimmie Back my Bullets" and "The Beast and the Harlot"? Has America become a "Bat Country"?
the only thing of beauty we can hold on to are Love songs and Gospel, and the former are dissapearing left and right!

look aparently your missing the point,just because we make those songs don't mean thats what we want to do or what we are. I dont think that our country is bad because we make songs like that as long as we know who we are we dont have to think of ourselves as a bad country. My point is just because we make songs like that don't mean we're bad it just mean it's something we like to talk about.So that is why I think that the arts of music isn't declining. And if you listen close enough you would probably find that there are still some great songs out there and that you would see that those former songs are still growing.
