How will this decade be remembered music wise?

As we draw to a close of another decade, how do you think the music will be remembered say, forty to fifty years from now?

I think it'll be remembered as the decade where individual album sales dropped, but the entire musical landscape shifted towards independence from the record labels.

Oh, and Nickelback.

I think it will be remembered as the decade where hip-hop and rap dominated the charts. And for very crappy music. And or Itunes and all the MP3 crap.

The decade where good rock music went indie and underground.

Will this decade have the stigma of the '80's?

Re: How will this decade be remembered music wise?

It will be remembered as the decade where the recording industry failed to define a new business model to cope with internet distribution and compete with rampant mainstream piracy. This led to the "best seller" charts being a complete farce by the end of the decade as the percentage of people buying music from legitimate, tracked sources fell precipitously.

It will also be remembered as the decade where, for the first time, basically anyone could produce and distribute a quality-sounding recording on their own to the entire world, leading to a ridiculous proliferation of the quantity of music available and making it harder to find the good stuff.

Finally, it will be remembered as the decade where the entire historical catalog of classical and popular music became available on demand basically for free for the first time to average Joes, leading to somewhat of a cheapening of people's in depth of appreciation for music.

Also, to everyone dissing the "noughties": do you remember the cheeseball R+B, new romantic douchebaggery and novelty terribleness of the mainstream eighties? How about the post-grunge stadium rock tedium and awful gangsta cliches of the ninties? For that matter, the milk-sop singer-songwriters and prog ridiculousness of the seventies? The basically entirely crappy early sixties and fake hippy-dippy "Age of Aquarius" bullshit of the late sixties? Which decade exactly was so excellent from a mainstream perspective?

Re: How will this decade be remembered music wise?

The technology (iPod, downloadable music) will be the only thing really remembered from this decade. Everything else is completely forgettable.

Except, of course, for the crappy indie band that no one listens to but you love. Those guys will be remembered longer than the Beatles.

I suspect that a future generation of kids will look at Beyonce and Jay-Z the same way we did Lawrence Welk. ("Jesus, Grandma, how could you listen to that shit?")

Re: How will this decade be remembered music wise?

This decade will definitely be remembered for the rapid changes in technology that led to massive changes in the recording industry. Things like Radiohead and NIN offering albums for free as more than just publicity stunts and so on.

As usual, the most enduring music will be remembered regardless of how popular it was this decade.

We outta have a poll which music decade sucked more the 90's or 00's.
I vote for the 00's.
In the early 90's we still had some hold overs from the 80's.

Leaping Christ, when you put it that way...


Then again, the 70s started with The Beatles breaking up and ended with Disco...

Re: How will this decade be remembered music wise?

Well talking POPULAR music, '00s were awful. '90s were almost as bad. I don't know when music got so "gay" or how it got that way, but it's horrendous.

I would hesitate to even call it "music". Forgetable wannabe random "soulful" "singing" over random drum beats and handclaps is hardly "music".

American Idol and ClearChannel have ruined music.. yet people still flock too it(them).. Original music is dying and I think its going to be too late once people start to notice.

Oh yeah, that was the defining movement of 80s music.

Re: How will this decade be remembered music wise?

I'll remember it as a great decade, both in terms of albums and the evolution of the industry. I don't really give a shit how the general public remembers it, as their taste tends to suck anyway.
