I think this is a gross oversimplification. I don't believe it's "go-to" for everyone, and for those who are partial to it, there is an element of nostalgia. So it seems to me you're mistaken on both counts.

There are many genres of music today, and each one has its own following. At the same time, there's a lot of overlap. I'm not confined to any one style or artist, and what I listen to is determined by my mood. I can enjoy music from all decades equally, and I do.
