Yamaha CR 840 - pure class
The problem with millennials is their taste in music. It’s a disgrace. It’s comparable to an Oliver Garden in Times Square. It’s a fabricated monotony and it has no soul. While there’s always a few exceptions, most kids graduating high school at the moment cannot fathom why Led Zeppelin could be the greatest rock and roll band of all time. And while I realize there was probably some old fart back in 1993, 1983, 1973, and maybe even 1963, who shared a similar sentiment as to old fart in training like myself, but let’s be real for a second. When I was in high school, there was Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Nirvana, Tribe Called Quest, and the Wu-Tang Clan. Kids don’t have that now. I’m a high school English and history teacher and a large cross-section of my students are these so-called millennials, so I say this with a tad bit of ethos in my corner, the fact there’s countless kids who are duped into thinking Kayne West is is an actual music and artist who happens to be talented. The entire existence of Kayne West and other cleverly marketed godawful pop music is doing a great disservice to kids whose brains should be filled with thoughts of creativity and inquiry, not wanton consumerism. I would hear the term “bullshit artist” all the time when I was adolescent and I have a good hunch our public schools have become such factories that kids will soon no longer be able to discern what is amazing and great about the world. At any rate, if you were a teenager in the mid-ninities and had a clue, things weren’t so bad.
