Hopefully nothing. In fact, since I’m technically old now I can talk about how I felt when I was young.
When I was young, ‘new’ genres like dubstep seemed really exciting and made everything else seem bland… for about 5 minutes. They were the coolest 5 minutes in the world! How exciting, it was like a new flavor of goodness was added to my palette. I didn’t even know such sounds existed in the first place, either. Once I got tired of it (this might’ve taken a few weeks) and it started sounding like ‘regular music’ again however, the rush was gone. Then everything almost sounded like shit.
I was chasing a weird high, if you can gather that much.
Anyway, since becoming an old guy (check out my new beard, it’s so thick) I’ve since realized that Skrillex and Dragonforce (those are real-life examples BTW) actually sound like garbage compared to their peers (save for a song or two, of course) and just kind of become weird novelties anyway.
So honestly, I hope youngsters without mustaches, cool beards and chronic constipation gravitate more toward things that they can cherish over the long haul rather than something they’ll grow sick of in 5 minutes only to look back upon as a novelty act. Novelties are essential, but real music is so much more satisfying.
