    The only good part of 80s music was the introduction of hip hop music to mainstream culture.
    Yup. There was some good speed/thrash metal in the '80's, Metallic, Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, etc. Not that I'm that big of a fan now, but it was bad *** back in the day.

                  Compared to the abominations that are being crapped out today, and tagged as "music", the 80's artists sound like HOF-worthy geniuses. For me to say something like that, considering that I lived through the 80's and hated most of that stuff back then, is a testament to how bad the current music scene has largely become. With very few exceptions, the current music industry is at an all time low. Its the same old tired formats with the same sounds that have been heard millions of times previously. The 80's now sound like a breath of fresh air.

                    Well the thing is there are limitations and I'm not sure how to explain what I mean ....how many chord combinations are there that work together an are pleasing to listen to ?.....many chord progressions in music overlap... meaning with little effort you can play many different songs with the same set of chords....Idk still not sure I'm getting a crossed my point....but in order for a song to be totally different from another the boundary's of what works , sells and is pleasing to the ear becomes more absurd over time...hence todays music.......perhaps rap music speaks to some of what I'm trying to say the words make the songs different while the beat in many cases is the same.....honestly all popular music does the same thing.....blues, rock, disco and so on......it can't be helped... for me if I like the sound of a song "the music" I like it ...doesn't matter who do it what type it is or in what period of time it was done.... that being said if it sells it sells which means someone likes it no matter how bad I think it is....just my .02.........and I do like the used I'll say this tho I find some of their lyric sappy but I enjoy much of what they do with the music/instrumentation which is what sells me first and foremost "the sound"

                        Agreed. 80's music is better than most of what is widely commercially available today, however, the 2 decades prior and the decade after were better. The music of the '60's, '70's, and '90's is a lot better than 90% of what came out in the '80s. Like Pizz said, the '80s were great for the introduction of hip-hop to the American consciousness.

                        Music today is mostly derivative and the fragmentation of music into hyper-specific sub-genres hasn't done it any favors. Neither has ease of access to technology.

                          I LOVE music from the 60's and 70's love it love it love it. I just love the pop/rock aspect of the 80's. I thought the style was cool and yeah, I love it lol.

                            Yup. I don't even listen to the radio anymore. It's recycled bubble gum pop crap with no substance. I'm sure there was some stupid sounding music in the 80's, but the majority of it wasn't that bad to me.

                              This is very very true. There have been many times where I'll be playing one song on my Uke..and I'm like wait...this sounds like another song...and then I play the other sound and it's the very same thing with a different rhythm.
