No not at all, i'm 17 and i love alot of the music that you have just named for instance i love Bob Marley, The Beatles, Queen and i'm really into Nirvana and REM at the Moment. I also like The Who, Some Guns N Roses, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and many many more musicians from the past. I love history and i love music so for me i like to look back at music from the past and i think that alot of the music from the past is so much better then alot (not all) of the so called 'music' of today but thats another rant for another time. I also think that you can learn alot from listening to older music if you want to be a musician like i do.
Everyone has a different taste in music and you like music from the past just like me whereas other people may like the music of today which is fine too. Everyone is different and everyone likes different things and so you should not be treated as though you are weird because you don't fit in and like different music. Like the music that you want to like and not what other people tell you to like. I'm not trying to give a f*ck the system speech here by the way lol.
I think it's cool that their are other people my age that are into older music and i'm glad to know i'm not the only one. I also agree that most of the mainstream music today is dreadful and i don't understand why people choose to listen to it but it's their choice and they can do what they want.
I know how you feel because sometimes i'm asked 'why do you listen to old music?' too so i know where your coming from. It does get better as you get older because i haven't been asked why i listen to older music and people seem to accept it more, i'm in College by the way :).
Hope i helped :). Peace!
