You're all partially right. Popular music has long been trite fluff, back to the 50s at least, with a few better songs and a few better artists finding mainstream success here and there. Same as today. On the other hand, while bad pop music is nothing new, popular music does tend to be even stupider than ever, and compared to the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, pop songs today do have less to say. Even if it's not as big of a difference as some make it out to be. But there is definitely a trend toward focusing more on music that has a beat and is "danceable," along with a trend toward lyrics that are much less subtle and, objectively, just more stupid. Even if it's more of a slight and gradual evolution than the night and day difference some imply.

Oddly, the first song that was ever auto-tuned was Cher, who absolutely did not need it. Such a shame that it was invented and became a crutch for talentless musicians. The only people I've ever heard that used it for something good are The Key of Awesome.

Electronic Dance Music for the 2000s is no different than Disco for the 70s. Dumb lyrics with a beat you can dance to. "Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah yeah. Show 'em how we do it now..." Not exactly awe inspiring lyrics. This trend isn't new. And amongst all of the EDM, Adele still shines bright above it all showing that people genuinely have an interest in strong vocals and lyrics.

True...most of this list is fairly forgettable pop or "R n B" aimed at a teenage market (as music has been since the 50s). Hazard a guess to say that you wouldn't hear any of this list on the radio in 5 years There has been some good stuff come out in the past 4 years, but it generally doesn't make the top 10.

Every generation has standards that become classics, but there is a lot more music being played today, 24 hours a day. Only a few truly great songs are written each decade. The rest of the time has to be filled with something, which opens the gate to lots of fluff and filler which is chosen to appeal to the market which buys the most music. I'm a child of the '60s and I think that's the best music, and I still play it along with classical, jazz, and classic country. Those of you who are '90s children probably prefer that decade's music. It's just how we define ourselves. I strongly dislike today's music, just as kids of today strongly dislike mine. That's okay.

My deliberate ignorance of modern pop music caused me to only get 12 answers. But I went through the list afterward and recognized a bunch more artists who I have heard of but didn't think of. The only one I am familiar with that I can stand is Gotye. Eminem used to be okay but I haven't heard anything I like from him in many years now.
