    Music trends

    Maybe its the fact that other than some independant radio stations, that radio is locked in a time warp not playing any songs since the late 90s.

    What are the mainstream trends in music after grunge? I don't know how popular emo is, although I think its more fringe than mainstream.

    There are no new trends.

    We're presently reliving the 70's until a new creative wave comes along.

    Huh? We're smack in the middle of one of the most prolific and creative waves of new music. You just aren't hearing it on the radio.

    Your talking about pop music. There is plenty of good bands out there they just don't set the trends.

    maybe...but he did say creative. The new stuff is not creative...its really just a lot of electro babble crap thrown down with a digitally altered lead singer. Dear god, what happened to real musicianship?

    I gotta disagree. I could list at least a dozen creative bands that have released something in the last 2-3 years that demonstrate real musicianship. And there's enough constantly being released that I can't even keep up with it all.

    well...that's why there's different stations on the dial.

    I guess the OP and Modo are talking strictly about commercial radio. But I agree with pup there's a lot of real good music out there. There is a local college radio station here that plays a lot of good new music (a lot of crap too but that's college radio).

    I'm with pup on this. There's good stuff out there, but you won't hear it on radio. That's been the case for a lot of years, actually.

    Depends on who you talk to and how bitter they are. I like some of the music to come out of grunge. Industrial and their little subsets, I liked whatever manson defines himself as. Future subsets like disturbed etc I enjoy too.

    I don't know if you can find all that on radio though. Some of the more popular bands you can, but for the most part you gotta search it out. I get turned on to a lot of my preferred music by watching mtb videos. They tend to be closely connected with indie groups and/or good rock bands that really give me that pump I used to get. The urge the jump into a mosh pit, play football or just plain ride.

    I have been listening to Sirius Alt Nation.

    Decent new stuff by bands like Lost Prophets, AFI, She Wants Revenge, Paramore, Angels and Airwaves, Snow Patrol, etc.

    There are lots and lots of great bands and artists out there. You just won't find manyy of them on the radio.

    Some new music I've found in the last couple years that is not on radio is Cold Driven, Jen Murdza, Shannon Thomas to name a few. All these artists are talented musicians, singers and songwriters, but you may never hear them on radio. I also like Sara Barellis, but she is now getting radio airtime.

    The 2000s has seen quite a bit of Post Punk revival.

    the radio has been pretty bad. on the upside, the playing field has been leveled a bit due to the internet, so there's more good music out there than ever before.

    I am mainly curious what the "mainstream" trends are. I mainly listen to a subset, so I am biased towards what is occuring in metal/industrial, as opposed to what is popular among the populace at large. I just mainly wonder what Joe Sixpack is listening to (in lieu of "classic" music), as my tastes are nowhere near "center".

    And, of course, we all know about the meta trend compressing and normalizing the sound to have as "hot" a sound as possible, even if the symbols have static, or if the lead singer's voice sounds crystalline. This is one of my pet peeves, because if I want a song loud... I can just crank the volume. What is sad is that sound is compressed and normalized to be as hot as possible by the radio station, so most music gets heavily mangled in the process.

    Whatever happened to mixers listening to mixes in various places to find what sounds best in general? A mix that sounds good cranked at 11 may sound like absolute crap at a volume that doesn't cause hearing damage. I know when I mixed stuff, I'd listen to the mix in a car (and the high audio threshold), on consumer grade speakers (with the exaggerated bass response), on flat response monitors, on cans, etc.
