The current state of the music scene is interesting to ponder, and even though it’s not universal wherever we go it’s interesting to see the plates shift in different directions. When I first started playing music bands like Blink 182, Taking Back Sunday, The Used and Yellowcard had clutching grips on the ears of young teenagers. In a sense, they still do. None the less, as time changes so does music. Fads change. Styles change. This is why music is wonderful. Even though this may seem miniscule, it is important. People used to follow bands wanting to be like them, but now there are shades of grey between the performer and the listener.
