Its better in 04' than it was then
It was better back then
I was to young to remember...
January, 1989 billboard top 50
Do you think music was better back then?
Haha, great post but no . Music from about 1988 to about 1995 sucked real bad .
Give me your broken , give me your beaten ... I will build them up , I will lead them ... to the threshhold . Make you stronger , make you believe .
hmm..i liked edie brickell, rob base and the escape club.
damn near everything except the hairbands i've got techno remixes of, i think.

Hip hop was certainly in a better state from 89-95, if I hear get low or milkshake again bad things will happen.
Way better back then. Music was great up until around 96-97.

Music was great when it was about talented musicians. Now it's about "Who is attractive enough for the magazine cover and who would look good on MTV".

Its all perspective. Alot of the music I listen to came from that era. Hard rock and metal.
A good deal of the people on this site are young/kids so I am guessing this poll will lean towards todays music.
SF-Rock has always been about image. Maybe not pretty boy image but image.
There were a few really really good muscians in 89 and a WHOLE LOT of ****. Today there is more good, and more ****.

I think alot of it is what you grew up with. I know I am stuck in a time warp. Lately though I have been hearing a little more new music, since I moved. Theres a couple songs I like not a ton though.
Speaking of videos remember when Metallica was the band that wouldn't make videos? There definetly proof music was better back then.
SF will bring back skater cuts! Vote SF!
Two GNR albums in the top ten speaks volumes about how much better music was back then.
.....goes off and wishes there would have been more than 3 main GNR albums....
SF: Pop music has been image-oriented and largely unchallenging since the beginning. I love the Beatles, but they were the boy-band of their time, just like Herman's Hermits or the Monkees or... not to mention the girl-groups.

music was way better, they busted mini vanilli or what ever, today the assstars can go around and fake it like apes, thats what they are apes in costumes, whatever.
today we have, foo fighters, sum 41 and ......
back then we had metallica still going hard, guns and roses, ac\dc still hot, lots of kewl stuff, today its only for colored people or females.
A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.
Before 89.....I think 50s-70s was the pinnacle of rock music. Beatles. 80s rock.......argh. ok at times when youre in the mood for a token hair band song. Mid 90s rock can be good too.
WHat do i know. I have Radiohead cds next to my Frank Sinatra cds......

Pop music is getting worse and worse every year. The best years for the music I listen to (hard & fast) were probably around 94-99.
It's very difficult to identify even "average" musicians these days.
Where are they?
I've never, EVER in my short lifetime witnessed a music industry so completely dominated by consumers who only appreciate a narrow age group.
15 years ago you turned on MTV, and you got Steve Winwood, Stevie Nicks, Guns n' Roses, Warrant, Tone Loc, Phil Collins, NWA, Van Halen, The Bangles, LL Cool J......I mean d*mn......that's an age/style demographic that's all over the map.
You didn't enjoy the video they were playing.....fine....wait 3 minutes until something good came on.
Now I pretty much flip to MTV to see if Outkast's "Hey Ya" is playing, otherwise, I switch it.
Music absolutely SUCKS these days. More specifically, MTV.
today, i like the music today better, it was good back then but its just better today imo,
