especially since Youth was doing there thing before garden, and still after.
I was gonna say about ALL the acts that stayed tuff throughout the years.
I am never at a loss for good music. there is tons of stuff I still dont know about. Its endless. To bitch about the state of music in your current day is somewhat of a lazy statement to make. To me , it seems that the person that is willing to say "rock (or even hip-hop) is dead" just hasnt heard it all. There is too much to go through. You could die and never have heard all the music of your time.
There is plenty of great music out there. Plenty. Popular songs sounding like trash won't bother me aslong as the bands I like keep making good music.
