A letter to the editor…
Angel Grove – Hey guys, Tiger here. It’s been awhile since I’ve written in, but I felt compelled to speak my peace after reading one of your recent articles. I have a bone to pick with Harriet, specifically over that stupid article she wrote about “millennials no longer liking the old stuff.”
Here’s a snippet of what your so-called “journalist” wrote…
For decades, when it came to musical tastes it was always cool to like “the old stuff.” About two to three records in, if a band changed their style or went pop, they were considered “sellouts.” The narrative has changed, as millennials now say the “new stuff” is better, and that “selling out” is actually a good thing. According to a recent P.U. poll, 82 percent of millennials would like to see their favorite bands sell out by their third album.
That “poll” she cited… It’s bogus. I am a proud millennial and I know, for a fact, 82 percent of us don’t prefer “the new stuff.” Selling out is not a good thing!
My man Toby Keith was fire in the early 90s. Fast forward two decades and guess what…. his 2010s albums are complete crap. I mean, come on, what are you indicating? That millennials all of sudden thought, “Hmm, crap music is better than good music?”
That’s doesn’t make a lick of sense. The “old stuff” is, and always will be, the best. I’m asking that you replace Ms. Faulkner with a new journalist. It’s time to clean house. This publication is going to hell.
