About every ten years, a new generation of young people embrace some form of music that annoys their parents. In the 50’s, we got rock & roll. In the 60’s, we got the British invasion. In the 70’s, we got punk. In the 80’s, we got rap. In the 90’s, we got grunge. So isn’t it about time for some new form of “that stuff the kids are calling music today - it’s all just a bunch of noise - and why do they have to play it so damn loud?”
Being middle-aged myself, I’m clueless on popular culture. But even I can see Britney Spears’ handwriting on the wall; we’re overdue for another round of out with old and in with the new. Can anyone in the younger crowd give us an idea on what we’re about to be overwhelmed by?
God, I hope it’s not industrial.
