Dude don't be dissin' the Mojo Man
He was the headliner at the greatest club show I ever saw
any sort of nostalgia for old rap
Doesn't make feel old. Just sort of.... confused.
Everything has a twenty-something or younger in the video.
Genre is irrelevant.
I've never been.
I saw him a few times myself;
all his stuff, well a lot, was topical;
it lends itself to being dated.
I listened to Beastie Boys growing up. I'm kinda young-ish. I'm not old, but I don't think a young person would know they paved the way for Drake, etc.
Simply being out of touch with today's music makes me feel old. The fact that I have no desire to get in touch with today's music makes me feel older.
Artists like Beyoncé, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake pushing 40 makes me feel a bit old
Unrelated to music but Freshman in Uni. this year were born in 2000 mostly and most kids in HS weren't even alive when 9/11 happened. You can all feel old now.
I was in HS when 9/11 happened. I was born in '85. I'm 33. Anyone ~25 or under most likely don't even really know what 9/11 was. It's just some thing they read about. Which absolutely blows my mind, because I'm not old.. or apparently I am. The effed up part is that so many other tragedies have happened, it's diluted 9/11's importance.
Almost ANYTHING recorded THIS decade ... I just can't relate.
I like the Jam a lot - in fact, far more than I did at the time - but listening to them makes me feel very old.
Not because their themes have dated (they're as relevant as ever, if not more so): but I end up thinking, 'Here we are - still facing the same problems.'
This is true, I was 5 during 9/11 but don't really remember the day. But at least I was alive.
EDM. But it's more, hey this is mostly really bad music but the kids like it, rather than oh gosh why can't I appreciate this.
The thing that usually makes me feel old is realising how long ago music came out that I regard as in some vague sense “current”. As in, Yeah, I keep up with music ... I'm hip to The Stone Roses and Radiohead. But those are, like, soooo last century, Daddy-O!
It doesn't help when I look at my music purchases at the end of the year and I've bought a load of new material: all from artists who are older than I am. Yet still I flatter myself that I'm on the bleeding edge because I bought a stack of releases from sexagenarian John Zorn.
Greta Van Fleet
(or any heavily nostalgic/revivalist act for that matter)
I could keep up with things before marriage and kids.
Then i became a DJ for 4 years and found out i was not missing too many riches.
Music makes me feel young - that excitement which doesn't come as much as it did when we were first discovering life.
By now...ALL of it.
I understood what they were going for musically and I got into it. I never understood those who dismiss Nirvana whole cloth and I never understood the visceral hatred of Oasis.
During the 80s, a lot of my friends were metal heads and those that weren't mostly listened to arena rock and heartland rock. In other words, everything spoon-fed to them by rock radio. The only time any of them ever heard anything alt/indie was when I put it on. Seeing Duran Duran on MTV was a close as they ever came to anything post-punk.
I heard Nevermind before I heard Bleach, but I heard them both just before Nirvana became big stars. I had already heard US bands like Pixies and Dinosaur Jr; British bands like the Smiths and the Jesus & Mary Chain. There was a vibe in the air, but as far as I was concerned, grunge wasn't cutting edge and it wasn't a part of a movement.
Work and other adult responsibilities had kicked in. Maybe I was just too old to be a part of it. But it was kick@$$ and classic rock radio was already stale even then. Every time they played Even Flow was a time I didn't have to listen to More Than A Feeling or Dream On again.
Britpop didn't really crossover to the US charts and airwaves. I only knew the bands that made the British chart, so I was only scratching the surface.
With both, the commercialization and the re-commercialization happened almost overnight. Next thing I see is the trades using the terms post-grunge and then post-Britpop. The bloom really came off the rose with Cobain's suicide and Noel's hop-knobbing over at No. 10 Downing.
I like to say, Old's Cool.
I usually feel like an Old Soul anyway.
"Flip Flop Fly", I know I'm gonna die...
I think a poet called that Pro-regress.
When I'm talking to another music buff who is younger than I am but still pretty up on bands from the 70's if not the late 60's... and he says:
"Yeah I know most of that music because my Dad liked it and listened to it"
So I feel boxed in as an old person like their Dad, and further from where they stand. Not young like them.
I tend to feel old and somewhat depressed when i hear certain/most Bob Seger songs.
