Don't call it music!
I only listen to talk radio
I miss 20th century rap.
I'm mainly a country girl, preferably '80s and '90s country, but I do like some of the newer artists that actually do sound country. Don't really like most rock/R&B/hiphop music. My husband listens to what I call his "angry music" sometimes, which really doesn't bother me, but I wouldn't put it on myself. I can stand almost anything, but have been known to complain about certain music being played by my country stations or in country bars.
Most music outside of country, I listen to specific songs, not artists or stations that play them.

Not a fan of today's mainstream, but mainstream from other decades is fantastic.
I was a big music fan when I was a teen. I knew every pop song and knew about the group.
The last time I really liked a new group was Arcade Fire. I still like them.
Might have been MTV that destroyed good music.
Yep. Check this article out. It's sad.I think they should change it to DARSTV(Dumb ass reality shows television) or maybe change the "M" in MTV to mean moron instead of music. The fact that they are even allowed to call themselves MTV as in music television is laughable. MTV was one of the reasons I got cable so that I could listen to headbangers ball and then they stopped showing that and eventually it seems like they do not show music anymore.

I'd have to go back to the eighties to find mainstream music that was both popular and good, with the likes of Talking Heads, R.E.M., etc. Of course, the decade also produced Flock of Seagulls and Human League, so the cream didn't necessarily all rise to the top.
There is plenty of great stuff out there today, but it is all on smaller labels so doesn't receive same sort promotion like the prepackaged crap. What, with the industry by marketing marketing like it is, I doubt whether that will ever change.

Every generation "thinks" they invented "great music" and every generation "thinks" that "great music" died when their brand isn't the frontrunner any longer. And of course, we're all mistaken.
Music these days is so fragmented, I don't really know "mainstream" actually is.
I think it's more specialized, now - DJ's on the radio aren't being paid to play. . . so what's 'mainstream' to one person is nonexistent to someone else.
for me - my mainstream is the kind I've been listening to since I was 12 - techno/metal/alternative: Rollins Band, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, Stabbing Westward, etc.
