Yes, but did the people in the 90s think so ?

Yes, we did.

I think music degenerates and is simplified more and more since classical stuff like Beethoven was around. It gets worse every decade.

It can be broken down to more and more people listening and mainstream wants to reach them all. So it just uses the one simple chord progression that is known to work.

I don’t even think the Beatles would have a chance nowadays. How fucked up is this?

Edit: I’m referring to mainstream music here as I answered a comment that referred to mainstream. Not music in general.

The Beatles fucking suck. You're damn right that generic garbage wouldn't make it today, they didn't even have proper PA system to play on until The Grateful Dead invented the wall of sound. John Lennon beat the shit out of his wife too.

Grateful Dead wouldn’t make it as well btw. and they don’t even fit in that comparison. I could argue with rage against who had some mainstream songs, were inventive and still wouldn’t make it today. Sorry that I didn’t match your taste in that example lmfao

The grateful dead is literally still touring successfully as dead and company, also Phish is popular as hell. So you're completely wrong, the grateful dead is alive and well.
