Yes I agree those are all great artists, but there's some very talented people this generation as well. I do believe there will be legends from this day and age.

Classics will always be classics but music in general continues to improve. I'm not talking about mainstream garbage the masses listens to.

There's some who have potential to be famous. Some that stick in my mind are Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Beyonce (I think shes ok, though overrated). Those are just a few I can think of.

Modern doesn't mean mainstream. I hate when y'all pretend to be big music fans when y'all only know the popular stuff of each decade

Music is so old that a lot of modern songs' melody originate from ancient music.. Going way back to Babylon, Mesopotamia and even Sumeria.. And Ubaidian culture possibly.. I think.. ?

Agreed. Nothing today will compare to the classic bands of the british invasion or the new wave of british heavy metal.
The last stretch of good music was grunge. After Kurt Cobain died and post-grunge (nickelsuck) dominated the radio along with later things like kesha, nicki minaj, and everything hip hop, music has acquired terminal cancer.

Adele sounds a lot better than Aretha Franklin.
