    I'm talking about music from the 50s, 60s and 70s. It's all so accessible to us now so it's hard to imagine them losing popularity. Although obviously there's a definite shift in what's most popular these days.
    Do you think they will become irrelevant and die out.
    Once the current teen generation become mature parents in their 50s will the "old stuff" be Drake etc?
    Where do you see music in 100 years?

    If that was a 'thing', how come music that's 2-300+ years old still exists?

    The classics will remain popular and relevant in the same way they are now

    People like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley etc will always remain relevant because of the effect they had on music. Odds are "older" music will remain far more relevant than the likes of Drake

    Of course, and obviously still remain iconic, but they're clearly a lot less popular than they used to be in terms of what people listen to day to day. Wondering if bands from the 70s will stand the test of time.

    I agree those three will remain relevant for a very long time. But I wonder about bands like The Yardbirds and The Animals. I hope so.

    There'll always be afficianados and music geeks who know it and bring it back. Music doesn't die.

    I didn't mean permanently die and be completely forgotten btw. But you know when you go to certain clubs and they play old 50s-80s classics in one room, I'm wondering when that'll change and most people will lose interest. And when Nirvana and The Stone Roses will become the old classics.
    Obviously not for many years but I'm wondering how long it'll take.

    Obviously, eventually, less and less people will listen to 50's music and of course the "classics" section will be more like the 80's, 90's, etc. People will ***** about that, saying it's bad because music is worse now or something, but people said the same thing 10/20/30+ years ago.

    Anyway.
    It'll never 'die' per se. As long as it's on record, it'll have fans, it just won't be popular.

    That's true. I listen to a lot of electronic music and it's interesting when you see that the DJ has barely changed anything and that the classic that they're sampling is already a banger in itself. Yet the new DJ gets all the credit. And same with rap/hip hop as well. You hear little things and you think damn Kanye this sounds pretty fresh and then you find out it's all Larry Heard.

    Na this generation is pretty clueless as well outside of the music geeks.

    I think most are people of the times.

    There will always be guys seeking out music though.

    Yeah, it's dying out. You see magical, amazing music from those times, but you look at today, instead of enjoying bands and real music like from those times, today they enjoy a machine and dj as their "music".

    It means for people who play music that stuff will get harder for us. In the next 100 years I see music get even more different from how it is now. As for the proper music of the 50's, 60's and 70's, that will die out. Cos people are changing. It's sad as a guitarist to see how it's turning.
