    I will admit to being a massive of fan 15 - 20 years ago of Faith No More, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Prodigy, Rage Against The Machine & The KLF
    To boot I will also admit and probably edit out shortly after that my first ever Single 45 vinyl was.....

    Spoiler:
    La Bamba by Los Lobos.
    Well I was born in 1971 so when I got into music it was the 80's so that's what I grew upon

    haha sounds like the PlayList in my car
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    I think the overall standards of music have changed, although it was never that great in the 80's when I grew up.

    Music is far easier to produce and can be done virtually free these days but talent is still out there, its just probably going to be harder to find in the charts since any gimp can now influence whats popular. At least back in the 80's and 90's you needed a couple of quid in your pocket to have a say in what charted and we can be pretty sure that the whole industry is massively manipulated by turds like Simon Cowell.

    That was probably the same with Stock, Aitken and Waterman back in the day, but without them we wouldn't have had Kylie Minogue, and who doesn't have fond memories of wanking off to her picture in Smash Hits?

    Same here, kids in the car 'Dad can we have Capital on?'
    Soon as they're out, back on Radio X. Although that isn't as good as when it was XFM now. Half the time I wish Johnny Vaughn/Chris Moyles would just shut the fuck up and play the music.
