I only listen to talk radio

What "passes" for "music" today is simply noise.
But, can it be as bad as imagined?
I have not listened to any for 30-40 years.
The real stuff is from the old masters, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, may others.
I don't really know anything about mainstream music today.
I don't watch tv or listen to the radio.
Around the age of 25, all music just began to annoy me.
On the rare occasions I listen to music these days, it's 80s or early 90s punk music, or occasionally some sort of old goth music like Joy Division or Bauhaus.
I think it's all junk!

Mind you, for all the performing arts students desperate to make it big - there will be kids practising in garages and bedrooms with stuff that will hopefully keep the real spirit of rock going.
