    Good music, wrong time

    Not the best title but I couldn't think of anything else.

    Have you ever listened to a band, been shown a band, etc, and thought "man if I listened to this like 10 years ago I would have loved it, but I just can't get into it anymore"? And not even in a, like, "I'm too mature for this" kind of way. More like, this isn't good enough anymore. Let me give you an example.

    Back in high school (2005-2009), I mostly just leeched off of my old brother's musical taste. Mostly what I now consider radio metal; Breaking Benjamin, Godsmack, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, etc. After high school, especially in 2015, my musical taste evolved into much harder and more technical stuff. Now, I mostly listen to progressive death metal (Gojira, Keith Merrow, Fallujah) and djent (Periphery, Animals as Leaders, Veil of Maya). So when my brother shows me Volbeat, I just think "meh, it's kinda generic." And I know that if I had listened to them back in high school (if they existed) I'd probably like them.

    You guys ever experience this?

    Sure, my musical tastes have changed a lot over the years. My tastes have always been pretty eclectic everything from Baroque (Classical) to Death Metal and what I listen to at any time is dependent upon mood and what I am doing. What I am finding now is that my old stand by "Hair Metal" and like music gets under my skin now along with a lot of "Death Metal" but I still enjoy early "speed/thrash" metal. So there are albums/groups now that I really don't listen to that I have complete discographies. Some will come back into the rotations but others I have just plain outgrown as my tastes change and mature (lot of "pop" from the 70s/80s). Lately I have been listening to a lot of FUNK from the 70s but not Disco.

      When i was young besides older rock that my dad got me into, i listened to whatever was the new top 40 hit (cause that was what everyone i grew up with listened too). I genre bounce all the time now and try to listen music ive never heard before, because its what i enjoy to do with my free time. Though ive always been a metalhead throughout my life.


        Not really. My tastes have long remained pretty consistent, centering on melodic hardcore, with other genres of punk and proto-punk, reggae, alternative metal, Americana, New Wave, and electronic. I add new material fairly frequently, though.

          Ha , Back in Highschool in the 80’s I listened to Punk and Thrash and I have not changed. I guess stick with what you like. I’ve been told to expand my tastes buttttttt Nah.


            All this new 80s music...that is actually better than most 80s music. It’s a weird feeling, Cold Cave and Interpol and a ton of dark wave bands are actually putting out better stuff, more sophisticated, better playing, etc, than the bands they ripped off (Mute, Factory, early industrial, etc) AND they put out more of it. But because it’s “retro” it’s just...stuck in time, malnourished even. I can’t get into it. Sometimes I can’t even stand to hear it, even though it’s often excellent.

            I did Madchester...still doing it. This is like some weird fake stuff...better than the real thing. It puts me in a headspace that feels fake and I loathe fake more than anything. Musical cosplay?

            Related: any great act from the 70s that survived long enough into the 80s to be techno popped to oblivion. Mike and the Mechanics, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, even Yes, MTV humiliated them all. Even Stevie Wonder’s biggest 80s record sounds like cheep thin crap compared to his 70s output. Those thin ties and Yamaha DX-7s...that stuff is very hard for me to take now.


              My musical tastes have changed significantly over time. Now I can't listen to most of the music that I used to love very much.
              It seems to me that all people go through this with age. All people change throughout their lives

                All the time. I also run into the "10 years ago I loved this, now it is ear-rotting rubbish. What the hell was I thinking?"

                Like most my musical selections change frequently depending on what I hear that is interesting, mood, availability, etc. My collection runs the gamut, ranging from weird experimental noise, Classical, Jazz, Funk / Soul, Metal, Punk, Gabber, Hardcore Techno, Hip Hop, Ambient, Acid (House, Techno, Hardcore), Musicals, Americana, Rockabilly / Psychobilly, Country, etc.

                When I was in high school I listened to a lot of metal (Cancer, Cannibal Corpse, Metallica, Obituary, Ministry, NIN, etc.) That transitioned into industrial, which led to techno, which led to a whole lot of other things. Most days now I listen to techno (Richie Hawtin, Project 313, Hyperactive, Octave, Truncate) especially during work hours- I find the lack of vocals makes it a lot easier to work and lose track of time. I still bounce around to different genres depending on what I'm doing and my mood.

                  Not quite what you're talking about, but after watching Requiem for a Dream, I got in my car to drive home and Jimmy Eat World's Bleed American came on the radio and it put the lyrics a little to sharply in focus. Not what I needed to listen to to pick my mood up right then.


                    I almost NEVER like anything the first time I hear it. Commonly if I like it straight off I tire of it quickly.

                    When I was in high school WAY the hell back when, I couldn't stand the pop music that was popular at the time, nor many of the hair bands and such. As I have aged I think that music has a way of taking me back to certain places and memories and enjoy it much more. My taste has developed to a point now where I listen to a lot of different things. I would say my 'slant' has gone towards Southern Rock/Country as of late, as it seems to be the only place actual harmony and talent come from on a regular basis.

                    What I REALLY hate is how many bands I like in which a significant driving force of the band is dead. Sucks.
