are the music videos the main reason 80s music is now so looked down upon?

    It has to do with the fact that so much of 80s popular music was dominated by the ageing baby boomer generation, which didn't want to listen to much of anything which was new, but instead had a preference for softer mellower versions of what they'd already heard. So you got sensitive-poet Don Henley singing melodic tunes about how much he liked cocaine and Genesis.

    I didn't realize that 80s music was looked down on. The mainstream music was lousy for the most part but lot of good music came out even after 1984 - The Smithereens, Propaganda, Midnight Oil, The Smiths, Peter Murphy, Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, Terence Trent D'arby, and others released some very well done recordings.

    80's music isn't looked down upon, it is cherished by anyone with a brain.

    No. There’s actually a lot of crap music from that decade. Most of the 80’s music that was actually good was made before 1983 or 1984. From then on it was horrible “hair bands,” overproduced pop, Rap, cheesy dance music, and stupid songs like “don’t worry, be happy!”

    As far as music videos, it was a revolutionary time. As far as actual music, a lot of crap!
