I talk to my 15 year old niece all the time to try to get an idea of what people in that age group are thinking about music because I'm at the point where I can't stand it. All except one person in her group of friends are starting to listen to songs from several years ago (Earlier 2010s) because everything being released now "Sucks" They're doing this on Youtube, sometimes radio, Pandora and Spotify.
The way CHR ratings (usually for the 2nd CHR station) in several markets has been falling overall, I have a feeling this same thing is hitting radio.
For those either with cable or a subscription to a service like DirecTV Now, Sling, etc, MTV and MTV-2 stopped playing music videos all together this year. "TRL" came back, it's an absolute train wreck of canned screaming, random interviews with no direction and "mumble rap" performances.
There's always that thing that goes thru my mind "You're just too old" Ok I'm 30. I still want to be able to enjoy something new. But there is nothing being released that is enjoyable. It's lifeless.
