I don't. I'm at an age where I know what I like and I rarely go without new music to listen to. I don't think you'll find many kids out there who aren't savvy enough to find their own music, not like the days of old.
There will never be another Messiah.
Not sure that is the point. I'm talking about the future of music. Does it have one?
Pre 1950 - Motown records/Big band/classical music/Gershwin etc dominated
50's - The dawn of Rock and Roll..Chuck Berry and the guitar debut
60's - psychadellic music takes over...The doors, Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, Velvet Underground, Beatles etc
70's - Hard Rock - Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, Who, ACDC
70's - Punk Music takes off.. Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols
70's - Also see rise of Disco and Surf Music --Bee gees, Beach Boys
80's - Hair bands/Metal take over. Metallica/Def Leopard/Bon Jovi GNR etc
80's - Electronic music debuts - Petshop Boys, New Order Depeche Mode
90's - Alt Rock/grunge...Nirvana, PJ, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Janes Addiction
90's Electrronic Music peaks with Rave explosion....Prodigy, NIN, Chemical Brothers etc
00's- Present.......who has taken over the mantle??? Can you name ANYONE??
EDIT: Yes, I do care because I get bored very easily of "new" bands that sound similar to what i've heard before. If you look at the chart above this, you can see pretty distinct sounds. The new bands of today sounds very similar to what has come before. Are we just out of new sounds? Is there nothing left to do? Have we reached what many people say happened to Art (paintings/sculpture) meaning that there was nothing left to paint or scultp that hadn't been done or re-interpreted already?
Is new music destined to just take from the proverbial parts bin of time from now on?
