It might be because almost every type of musical cue has already been done. Not just in music, but in stuff like TV shows and videogames, etc.

So you don't know about grammophone records?

I think the technology you're looking for is 8-track, not grammophone.

Yeah, the old 8 tracks. Why you kids don't know about those...? lol Though to be honest, I've never seen one used, but there were still two or three laying around the house when I was growing up. Heck, they're probably still in some box of junk somewhere.


Never been a fan of rap/hip hop. Do kids think it is something new for their generation? Because that stuff has been pushed since I was in middle school in the early 90s. I remember that's what largely made up most of the music at middle school dances at my school. Well, that and the Electric Slide. Tell me kids still at least know that one.

Looking back though, that 90s stuff was so much more tame compared to most of what's produced today though. It's almost enjoyable now, if at times just little hokey seeming in comparison. These days so much of it seems to have become... well... like that crap they made for the 2014 Turtles film end credits. If such superficial, selfish garbage, there and via other genres, is what the world is and will continue to be, then maybe the world should just go ahead and bomb itself to pieces... The "everything is about me" mentality is getting old.

It's difficult to sum up a generation when only basing it on a handful of kids. I think there are some who only know certain genres of music but also you have lots of younger folks who do know all types. Every generation has the people who stick with current pop culture and people who bounce all around and explore various decades of pop culture. I remember the ol' 8tracks and records from my parents. Still have some Zeppelin records that I collected in my early twenties.

I don't listen to the radio nor do I touch those top 100 playlists on spotify since I know they'll be fully of pop songs that I don't like. That being said, I'm sure there's more "underground" musicians than ever. Just like there was crappy music back in the 60s/70s but no one remembers the worst acts. As for the 80s... well that era had lots of sh*tty music.

It sucks that so many larger than life bands are dying off or old as hell, though. It feels like arena rock bands aren't much of a thing anymore. and the greatest metal bands ever are also gonna hang up their boots someday and can't think of younger bands which are big enough to fill in their shoes.

All I know is that that is the namesake of the Grammy.

I wouldn't know how to work that, either.

8-tracks are easy to use. Shove it in and hit play. Hell, do you even have to hit a play button? It's been awhile. I had a small collection and a couple players like over a decade ago.

Yes there was a play button. 8-Tracks were the direct precursors to cassette tapes. My parents still have their 8-track deck and tapes and even still play them. Mostly my mom uses it to convert old albums that are not available in current formats to CDs. And they still sound as good now as they did then.

They were never around for as long time as grammophone records, so it makes more sence children not learning about them. Grammophone records were mainstream between the late-19th century and into the 1990's and important part of 20th century entertainment culture.
