The TRUTH Why Modern Music Is Awful

The TRUTH Why Modern Music Is Awful


Hey Thoughty2 here. On the 6th December 1966 four guys from Liverpool
stepped into Abbey Road Studios and began to record an album. 333 hours and many questionable substances
later, The Beatles had emerged having produced their eight album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It would go on to sell over 32 million copies
worldwide and be named the greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine and
many other publications. It was highly experimental, using mould-breaking
techniques and a huge array of unusual instruments. The band had produced an emotional masterpiece
that epitomised the so called summer of love and was a true masterpiece of its time, yet
it remains just as relevant and powerful today. Fast forward 44 years to 2010 and Justin Bieber
released his hit single “Baby”, this is generally considered to be a bad move. So what went wrong? How did we go from Bob Dylan to Britney Spears,
from Led Zeppelin to Lady Gaga and The Kinks to Katy Perry. But who am I to criticise the musical tastes
of the vast majority of today’s youth? Personally, my musical tastes are stuck in
middle of last century, but you may think that just makes me old fashioned, stuck in
the past and I should move with the times. But here’s the thing, there is far to this
than simple nostalgia and when your parents keep telling you that the music died long
ago, they may actually have a point, because it turns out science agrees with them. Over the past thirty-plus years researchers
have been studying how trends in music have changed. And a recent study in 2012 by the Spanish
National Research Council revealed that the suspicions of somewhat antiquated individuals
such as myself are very true, music IS getting worse every year. The researchers took around 500,000 recordings
from all genres of music from the period of 1955 to 2010 and they meticulously ran every
single song through a set of complex algorithms. These algorithms measured three distinct metrics
of each song, the harmonic complexity, timbral diversity and loudness. The most shocking result that the researchers
found was that over the past few decades, timbre in songs has dropped drastically. Timbre is the texture, colour and quality
of the sounds within the music, in other words, timbre is the song’s richness and depth of
sound. The researchers found that timbral variety
peaked in the 1960s and has since been steadily declining. The timbral palette has been homogenised,
meaning songs increasingly have less diversity with their instruments and recording techniques. This divide is clearly evident if we take
what is widely considered to be The Beatle’s masterpiece, A Day In The Life, which was
recorded using an orchestra of forty musicians. But this is not classical music, this is pop. The five minute piece contains violins, violas,
cellos, double bass, a harp, clarinets, an oboe, bassoons, flutes, french horns, trumpets,
trombones, a tuba and of course the four band members playing their usual instruments over
the top. In contrast Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines uses
but one instrument, a drum machine. And yes this a rather extreme example, a song
known for it’s one-dimensional but punchy baseline. But it represents an overall trend with modern
pop music that the researchers found in their data. Instead of experimenting with different musical
techniques and instruments, the vast majority of pop today is built using the exact same
combination of a keyboard, drum machine, sampler and computer software. This might be considered as progressive by
some, but in truth it sucks the creativity and originality out of music, making everything
sound somewhat similar. Do you ever flick through the radio and think
to yourself “all these songs sound the same?”. What the researchers found is that the melodies,
rhythms and even the vocals of popular music have become more and more similar to each
other since the sixties. One facet of this homogenisation of popular
music was pointed out by musical blogger Patrick Metzger. Metzger noticed that hundreds of pop artists
were using the exact same sequence of notes that alternate between the fifth and third
notes of a major scale. This is usually accompanied by a vocal “Wa-oh-wa-oh”
pattern. Metzger named this the “Millennial Whoop”
and it sounds like this. The Millennial Whoop can be found in hundreds
of chart-topping pop songs created over the past few years, and its usage is becoming
more frequent. From Katy Perry’s California Girls to Justin
Bieber’s baby, literally every single major pop star today has included the Millennial
Whoop in at least one of their songs. But why? Well, quite simply, familiarity. Our brain likes familiarity, the more we hear
the same sounds the more we enjoy them. The millennial whoop has become a powerful
and predictable way to subconsciously say to the masses, “hey listen to this new song,
it’s really cool, but don’t worry you will like it because it’s really familiar, you’ve
kind of heard it a hundred times before”. And in this wildly unpredictable world, this
makes us feel safe. Sticking to the same cookie-cutter formula
comforts people and that’s important. But what about lyrics? Well, I’m afraid it’s bad news there too. Another study examined the so called “Lyric
Intelligence” of hundreds of Billboard chart-topping songs over the past ten years. They used different metrics such as the Flesch–Kincaid
readability index, which indicates how difficult a piece of text is to understand and the quality
of the writing. This was the result, over the past ten years
the average lyric intelligence has dropped by a full grade. Lyrics are also getting shorter and tend to
repeat the same words more often. We’ve gone from the absolute poetic beauty
of Bob Dylan and Morrissey too well… this… and this… What if I also told you that the vast majority
of chart-topping music in the past 20 years was written by just two people. What do Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Ellie
Goulding, Robin Thicke, Jessie J, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake,
Maroon 5, Pink, Leona Lewis, Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera, Kesha, The Backstreet
Boys, Westlife, NSYNC, Adam Lambert and Will.i.am all have in common? The answer: their songwriter. I’m not saying 100% of their songs, but a
good chunk of all of these artist’s songs were written by the same Swedish man, Mr.
Max Martin. This one man is singlehandedly responsible
for over two-dozen number one singles and thousands of songs in the top 100 charts over
the past decades. He has written universally recognisable tracks
such as “I kissed a girl”, “Baby one more time”, “Since u been gone”, “California Gurls”,
“Shake it off” and so, so many more. And if Max Martin didn’t write it American
signer-songwriter Lukasz Gottwald most probably did. Known professionally as “Dr. Luke”, together
with Max Martin, they account for the lyrics and melodies behind the vast majority of pop
music today. You’ve likely never heard of them and that
is very intentional. These two men are the hidden pop factories
behind virtually every single band that is played on the radio today and probably every
music act you grew up with, if you’re under thirty-years old. And you wondered why everything sounds the
same. There are still popular, chart-topping musicians
that write the entirety of their own music today, but you have to look really, really
hard. Research has also shown that the hook, the
part of the song that really grabs us and pulls us in, is occurring sooner in modern
songs and they happen more often. Researchers believe this is because when it
comes to music, our attention spans have drastically shortened, unless a song instantly grabs us
our brains tend to shut off and ignore it, often skipping to the next song. This shortened attention span is a trend amongst
people that has only occurred in the past ten years and it’s believed to have been caused
by the instant access to millions of songs at our fingertips. It used to be the case that if you wanted
to hear a song you had to go out and buy that one single or album, take it home and play
it. You would probably play it countless times
because you had spent so much money on so few songs. Over time you would learn to appreciate all
the subtle nuances throughout the album. And then the iPod happened granting access
to thousands of songs on one device, which eventually led to streaming. Today we flick through songs on Spotify without
much thought to each song’s subtleties and unique talents. This has caused musicians and record companies
to favour punchy bass lines that demand our attention and to stuff each song full of so
called “hooks” to instantly grab our attention and keep it for as long as possible. And they’ve been doing something else in recent
years to grab our attention, something subtle but very powerful, yet so very, very wrong. For the past twenty years music producers
have been engaged in a war. The “loudness war”. The aim of this war is to produce louder music
than your competitors. But how do you make music louder when the
listener is in control of the volume, not the producer? Well, they use compression. You may have heard of dynamic range compression,
it’s the process of boosting the volume of the quietest parts of a song so they match
the loudest parts, thus reducing the dynamic range, the distance between the loudest part
and quietest part. This makes the whole song sound much, much
louder than the un-compressed version, no matter what volume the listener has set their
device to. It’s like me standing in the middle of the
street and mumbling nonsense to myself, occasionally whispers and sometimes speaking a bit louder. A few people might notice and avoid me. But then if I were to compress my dynamic
range I would suddenly be bellowing out every single word at the top of my voice, loudly
and proudly. Suddenly everyone turns around to look at
the crazy man shouting in the street and the police would be called. But this is exactly why producers do it, as
the market has become increasingly crammed with similar sounding pop music, making your
song shout louder than all the others ensures it will be heard amongst all the competition. But there’s a big price to pay for loudness. Dynamic range compression, when abused, as
it often is today, is an absolute travesty when it comes to the art of creating music. Where physics is concerned, the rule is that
you can’t make a sound louder than the volume it was recorded at, without reducing its quality. Compressing a song’s dynamic range strips
away its timbral variety. It muddies the sound, subtle nuances that
would have before been very noticeable and could have been appreciated are now, no longer
nuanced, they sound exactly the same as the rest of the track. Listen to this short recording without any
compression. Now hear what happens when the dynamic range
is compressed to match that of modern pop music. Hear how everything sounds less punchy and
vibrant, the drum beats stand out less, everything just makes less of an impact. But there’s very real reason why popular musicians
and producers today don’t stray away from their safe-haven of repetitive, monotonous
drum machines, unimaginative, factory-produced lyrics, rhythms stolen then from the previous
popular song then chopped up and changed slightly and of course, their ever popular millennial
whoops. It all has to do with risk. In the fifties, sixties and seventies record
labels would receive hundreds of demo tapes from budding young artists every week. They would sift through them and the most
talented acts would be offered record contracts. Even if they weren’t that special it didn’t
matter too much, the record label would just through a few thousand pounds into marketing
and if the public liked their music they would gain traction organically and make it big,
if not, they would fade away into the night. And this is crucial because importantly, the
public were voting with their ears for the best, the most talented musicians, singers
and songwriters. We, the people were the final judge and jury,
the ultimate arbiter. And so musicians had to be really bloody talented
to impress us enough to stick around and make more music. But this was risky, because many times record
labels would pump thousands of pounds into an act that weren’t destined to be and their
gamble wouldn’t pay off, losing their investment. But when they signed the really big acts it
would balance the books. However today promoting a new band is more
expensive than ever. Over time the cost of breaking in a new artist
onto the global music scene has sky-rocketed. In fact the IFPI reports that today it costs
anywhere between $500,000 and $3,000,000 TO sign a new act and break them into the music
scene; that’s a hell of a lot of money. Would you want to gamble with three million
dollars? No? Neither do music producers. So the industry has reacted by removing the
risk. Instead of trying to find genuine musical
talent they simply take a pretty young face, usually from a TV talent show and then simply
force the public to like them, by brainwashing them. Instead of allowing the public to grow to
like an artist and make their own mind up about the quality of their music, the industry
now simply makes you like the music, thus removing all the financial risk. Brainwash you say? How on earth do they do that? Have you ever noticed how “that” popular new
song seems to follow you around, everywhere you go. It’s on every radio station, it’s played in
your favourite stores, the supermarket, online and its even in the latest Hollywood movies
and popular TV shows? This is no coincidence. What that is in fact, is the record label’s
$3 million making sure that that new single is quite literally everywhere, completely
unescapable. Remember I was talking about the power of
familiarity? It’s called the Mere-exposure effect, a physiological
phenomenon by which people develop a preference for things they see and hear often. Our brain releases dopamine when we hear a
song we’ve heard a few times before and the effect only gets stronger with each listen. Can you remember the very first time you heard
your favourite pop songs from the past ten years? Whether it be Gangnam Style, Happy, All About
That Bass, Blurred Lines, Hotline Bling, did you truly like it the first time you heard
it? Or where you kind of repulsed? Did you have this brief moment where you thought,
what the hell is this? But then you heard it a few more times and
you began to think, well I guess it’s kinda catchy. And they your friends are all listening to
it and you hear it a few times and boom, it’s your favourite song and you can’t stop listening
to it. If this has happened to you then I’m afraid,
you have been brainwashed. The mere-exposure effect has gotten to you. Surely if a song is truly a great song, then
you wouldn’t need to force yourself to love it, you wouldn’t need to be won over through
a period of repeated exposure, you would just like it the first time you heard it. We all have different musical tastes but they
are sadly being overridden, diluted and emulsified by the brainwashing activities of big record
labels, the repeated and constant exposure to manufactured songs that we’ve heard a hundred
times before. Don’t get me wrong, there are many fantastically
talented bands out there, but in today’s industry virtually none of them will ever be signed
because they are simply too risky to promote, because they don’t fit the usual pop formula…
they are different. But being different is important. You may be thinking, “so what if I’m being
brainwashed, I enjoy contemporary popular music and isn’t that what’s important?” Yes, of course, music is an expression of
your personality and it should be enjoyed, no matter what others think. But it’s also really important to not let
creativity and originality disappear. Music as an art form is dying, it’s being
replaced by music which is a disposable product, designed to sell but not to inspire. So we shouldn’t be so complacent in allowing
systematic, cold, factory produced music to dominate or else the beautiful, soulful and
truly real music that we’ve all at some point loved and has been there through our darkest
times and our happiest times, could soon be a distant memory, never to be repeated. Thanks for watching.

  21. Old music is superior Hall and Oates, Queen, Beatles, Billy Joel etc…

  22. When the new stuff is garbage, the only solution is to retreat

  23. they use algorithms to peak your emotions interests, you all well know sound is a huge emotional trigger, companies are exploiting this to manipulate and control you all like sheep, whats a good way to get masses amounts of people to part with their money ? integrate music into societies culture and manipulate them through sound, allot of these popstars get their songs and backing music from the same people/person, they dont actualy make up their own songs, this is another factor to why they sound the same as well as algorithms coming into play

  24. Whelp! We all know the two evil faces behind this monstrosity they try to call music now!

    (and post punk, that actually just more complex and deep pop, but author embarrassed to call it pop)

  27. If people walking around with a cut off head of Kathy Griffin people would laugh at it

  28. What's funny is that the fact that this video is twenty minutes long. That means that only us old people will watch the whole thing. The young ones who like the bad current music don't have the attention span to stick with it. And they're the ones who need to watch this video.

  29. True. Creativity is very important!

  30. Art is subjective so everything you’re saying is bullshit

  32. You tell the truth, but you charge for it. If you don't work for the elite, you are still a part of the beast system.

  33. Not only that, they justify their use of autotune

    by saying it makes their voice sound sad

  34. today, pooping in a glass is considered art.

  35. Figured this out a long time ago….crap sounds like crap & all crap sounds the same. The worst crap of all must be rap-crap, some back alley dweller with an tasteless expensive car, a bunch of vulgar jewelry & a Glock in his hand ranting some vulgar lines in the name of "music"….

  36. New music…. Woah oh, woah oh oh oh we oh we oh woah woah

  37. We need Rush Type bands

  38. Let's save the music industry:
    Hans get ze shure sm58

  39. Guys, great music is out there. You simply can't find one in commercial radio stations.
    What about David Benoit? Ever listen to Linus and Lucy? Type in "David Benoit Linus and Lucy" with no quotes in Google Play Music. You'll see.
    https://play.google.com/music/listen#/wst/st/20765aba-3537-33ff-b941-26a1a10036a6

    David Arkenstone?
    https://play.google.com/music/listen#/wst/artist/A56ec5hqnllpeyfokt2sssc2lem

    Diane Arkenstone? Medwyn Goodall? Cusco? 2002? Kitaro! Yanni! David Lanz/Paul Speer! Peter Kater! There's Celtic music (pronounced "seltik') out there, such as Clannad and Loreena McKennitt.

    What about songs from movies that you all love? TRON Legacy (Daft Punk)? Tomorrowland (Michael Guacchino)? WALL-E (Thomas Newman)?

    How about The Talos Principle soundtrack by Damjan Mravunac? I mean, if you've played The TALOS Principle! Music from Chrono Trigger? Chrono Cross? What about Portal? Do the video game music inspire you at all?

    Seriously, there's still creativity out there. Music is not dying as long as there are still hearts and minds pouring so much time into music out there!

    I've made my own songs a few years ago, although mine isn't as good as professional-sounding music out there. I did try to put some creativity into my own music, though, and I do not plan in following the trend, what with loudness wars and all. Dynamics is my friend.

  40. To tell you the truth, I prefer J-rock or Japanese songs.

    American Modern Music Sucks except Old Town Road.

  41. The Johnny Bravo Brady Bunch episode predicted this back in the 60s. The modern record labels don't want Talent. They just want someone who fits in the suit.

  42. Yeah music sucks now I make music for living I don't even how to play one instrument but I'm quite successful

  43. Old music is good. But today's music is terrible

  44. 6:05 – conspiracy theory. Jk

  45. What’s between Brittany Spears ears, (. )!!!!!🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪

  46. It's always been that way, today it's just more organised and aggressive. Don't forget, The Beatles were "bought in" by Brian Epstein producing, then buying all their records himself in order to push them up the charts. A cunning move and they turned out some amazing stuff. The whole "music industry", well the whole "entertainment industry" is just that – an industry, It's just a financial gravy train, as Pink Floyd told us.

  47. I once moved to the San Fernando valley in Southern California. I lived there for 1 year, 4 months, and 5 days. In that time I saw and listened to more solid live music acts than I had my entire life prior or since combined. People are right, if you're interested, seek new live music.

  48. I was brain washed in to likeing bad guy exactly what you said happened to me

  49. I stopped liking music after the mid 90's, I like classic, all the way through the 80's and early 90's but in my opinion music died in the 90's.

  50. This is why I listen to metal and rock and roll because todays music is just all about sex,drugs,boobs,butts,penis and it just goes on and on

  51. I noted this similarity in music back in 2001 and simply stopped listening to popular music and radio altogether.
    It is now obvious I'm not alone and other people that appreciate good music feel the same way.

  52. Really?
    https://youtu.be/VfNdps0daF8

  53. Max Martin makes all Swedes feel shame.

  54. Video bad. Delete now.

  55. 15:29 3M? looks like 300k to me..

  56. Wkwkwkwkwkwkw ahahahahaha

  57. Is it because everyone is a perv now and people like watching that stuff??? Just a theory don’t get mad 🙅‍♂️

  58. Last time i listen to radio music was in middle school. Then i found death grips. Now im an even bigger dissapointment to my dad.

  59. What happened to music was that hollywood keeps promoting this soyboy,lgbtq and this progressive propaganda in music and TV.

  60. Honestly I am 15 today but my music taste was in the old to modern rock music.
    Actually that is wasn't bad pretty nostalgic and still great to listen

  61. 12:45 sounds comfortable was sounds good.
    13:07 Then this is bullshit.

  62. 15:47 BTS and K-POP Groups and Artists are the good examples for these shits.

  63. Who are those 2 wankers writing the music

  64. Pink Floyd forever.

  65. I can't stand modern pop music, it's so flat, dull and tedious. Music used to describe a story, take you on a journey, now it goes nowhere and seems to be only about some wining bitch crying because his/her lover doesn't give a fu*k about their pathetic ass anymore.

  66. good thnx
    but it's a very long video

  67. Very interesting. Sometimes you hear something new and don't like it and it grows on you not because of brainwashing, but because it was different. Something can become a part of you, like Syd Barrett's solo stuff. I thought "what the hell is this" at first with that, but now it has charm. Other stuff I like at first listen, like Arcade Fire and Empire of the Sun.

  68. The Beatles have sold 188,000,000 units
    Ed Sheehan has sold 150,000,000 units

    I seriously hope Ed want overtake the Beatles

  69. While some modern music is awful, the generalisation that 'modern music is awful' has several problems.

    1. The study referred to was done by the Million Song Dataset, which is mainly built up of pop songs, which do primarily use the same chords as each other. Also, the way the MSD is compiled is based on songs similar to those popular pop songs, and to be similar, they would have very similar chords.
    2. The generalisation of pop music as being representative of all of modern music is ignoring the large majority of composers and songwriters, who are innovating and writing new music.
    3. 'Volume, timbral diversity and harmonic complexity' are not necessarily a good indication of whether music is good or bad. Some composers intentionally use samplers to create music of lower timbral diversity deliberately be different.

    And again, the dataset used is unlikely to show much harmonic complexity there is in music today as a whole.

    And finally, my largest problem with the study used is that none of the experts who wrote the study were musicians, musicologists or composers/songwriters. This largely limited the scope of the study as they did not conduct any research into the actual musical content of the songs.

  70. Actually, .. music is awesome nowadays. Timbre, harmonic complexity and loudness is not what defines a good composition. There are significantly more parameters that define good music. The rave of the 90s was … probably bad but it gave birth to EDM. That is just one genre which is actually getting to the point where it puts an orchestral ensemble to shame when it comes to depth.

    The digital things you mentioned are capable of creating instruments of almost infinite complexity and certainly infinite possibilities of articulations. Both a violin and an oscillator chain have their own subtleties. Declaring one better than the other is unacceptable, simply untrue and it would be a downright a fucking insult to anyone in the music industry.

    A massive amount of knowledge goes into the production of a pop hit, marketing, musical genius, psychological, etc. I hate justin bieber's music's shallowness as any other person next to you but i do appreciate the work that went into producing that. And .. hey .. the managed to create something for the most annoying human demographic ever. Thats commendable.

    Oh if our friend Ludwig would still be alive he'll probably roll up your timbre and harmonic complexity for you right before inviting you to shove it up your ass.

  71. millenials will listen to static and call it a masterpiece…sad

  72. Very mis-informative video.

  73. Some modern music is actually good. Most of it is just bad.

  74. What artists do you listen to?

  75. Where my green day,beatles and queen fans at ?

  76. My Musical Taste is stuck in 18th century

  77. the milenial whoop scares me

  78. Maaan, you have covered great topics, cheers from Russia

  79. I could make better music by banging on a large pot with a metal spoon, compared to the crap called music today which sounds like a cat being run over with my lawn mower.

  80. Modern music today sucks really sucks I have no liking for I wouldn't even stand to listen to it it's horrible it's and I still listen to the 60 70s best music ever made never beat that kind of music no one reads musicians anymore like they did like then sorry but this music today is horrible no meaning no heart to it nothing is completely soulless

  81. They called Beyonce and all these other singers musicians they're not musicians they don't write the music they don't write the lyrics to Just sing them they're not even that good at it my God Is Watching and Joe Walsh are you one time he's talking about Beyonce got four Riders and three producers and there's six words in the whole song he's trying to keep from laughing about it I wish you would have laughed about it cuz it's disgusting

  82. The who were the loudest band ever the play live and it was clear and they were freaking unbelievable great rock and roll never done like that again never I was glad I grew up in those days there was beautiful music and it meant something

  83. I saw her up in just a few words modern music sucks.

  84. Who the heck is that 25k human dislike this video

  85. Pop and rap are both trash

  86. You should put links to the research and studies mentioned in the video in the description.

  87. how depressing. I listen to independent music. I want to throw up when I hear all the pop songs mentioned in this.

  88. I bet kid's this generation will tell their kids that the best classic music or one of the best was gucci gang by lil pump. My reaction would be the Jonah J Jameson laugh.

  89. I hated how around 2010 every pop song had the ''rap part'' halfway through.
    Or am i the only one?

  90. I usually put the song to start at the middle, no need of hooks, I just hear the middle of it and fast understand if it is good or bad.

  91. The decompressed music sounded a loot better and I would chose the decompressed music of those two.

  92. Some songs I did truly like it directly, like the old "Eye of the Tiger" by "Surviver" however that is old music.
    Wile modern good talented singers and artist who does write her own music is Emily Autumn who is ORIGINAL and modern enough. Sadly not one of the big shots.

  93. Comparing the best of the 60's to the worst of today is not fair, not all modern music is awful

  94. That's why most Heavy Metal subgenres are maybe the best music around nowadays, in lyrical, musical and performance quality. Just go and listen Nightwish (If you're a classical head), Ghost Love Score (Live from Wacken 2013) is a perfect song to listen to. And there are many, many bands with original, complex and great content. It's just mainstream pop music thar it's pure garbage.

  95. Just wish companys focused on making good things rather than money means that we get better stuff and PAY more because MORE people like them

  96. Hey I’m a modern dancer and I’m sad
