what happened to GOOD music?

mainstream music anyway, seems to keep getting worse. any genre. i remember rock used to produce great bands like the beatles. hip hop used to have great artist who actually had a message and sang (seems like everysong has that voice modifier now).

can anyone recommend any refreshing tunes?
