i think of the 60s the beatles, the 70s, the doors, pink floyd, the 80s, duran duran EVERYBODY in this world knew who they were.
now it seems like the best songs on earth are going unnoticed. maybe boy bands and trl with 12 yr old girls deciding who was the coolest destroyed it.
i however think the internet destroyed it. there is so much stuff on the internet these days that the niches are getting smaller and smaller to the point where in the future, bands will have fanclubs of like 50 people, and outside of these little niche fanclubs, they are unknown to the world.
songs like mouthful of diamonds only having 1,000000 views. thats 1 out of every 6000 people. it used to be like 600 out of 6000 people who knew the beatles.
anybody see what im saying? yeah we are more connected, but in a way the things we love are always shrinking under the weight of the amount of info on the internet.
i miss the days when everybody knew akari warriors or wolfenstein 3d. things like this are getting lost in history as the internet keeps accellerating.
