Have looked. Best modern stuff has no lyrics.
Do you even metal brah? Or rock? Foo Fighters? Blind Guardian? Dream Theatre?

I know there's lots of good indie/alternative rock with lyrics. MAGIC!, Bloc Party, Imagine Dragons, AWOLnation, Foster the People, the 1975. Pop punk rock has Paramore and Flyleaf, both with excellent female vocalists. Don't get me started on the really alternative rock/metal with Deftones or Tesseract, or Tool and A Perfect Circle, all of which started between 90s to early 2000s. Tesseract started in 2007.

Yeah, there's lots of good instrumental music, yeah, but that's not the only "good" modern music being made.

Look up Bill Weaver Blackbird. Guy was a test pilot for the SR-71, and, as he was flying along faster than the speed of sound, his plane broke into pieces. One second he was traveling faster than Mach 3 in a plane, the next second he was traveling faster than Mach 3 without a plane.

One, yeah, I said that "good" is really a matter of opinion. Still, if you define "good" music with lyrics in this case as "technically proficient singers" then there's definitely good modern music being produced.
Two, I knew one of you guys who loves WoT so much liked Blind Guardian. Yeah, BG is cool.

BG has forced me to want to read Dark Tower and WoT.

The songs corresponding to said books, Wheel of Time and Somewhere Far Beyond, are my favorite BG songs.

Dammit, BG.

I'm not really a big music guy anyway. I, simply enough, don't go out of my way to get new music, and my main complaints before were that almost no good music gets publicized at all.

I'd read the Wheel of Time if I wasn't so occupied with reading old books.

One of which is War and Peace.

Please.....I'm like TWO generations prior to today's kids, and I think the music scene is amazing today. Just as I love the music from last decade. And the 90's. And the 80's. And the 70's. And the 60's. Thing is, over time people forget all the shitty, insipid music from each decade and remember just the truly classic stuff.

For every Jimi Hendrix, there was a Tiny Tim.
For every James Brown, there was a Fabian.
For every "Stairway to Heaven", there was a "Muskrat Love".

I can only presume this means the sheer existence of Nickelback is counterbalancing every good performer on the planet right now.

Hey, now, Nickelback actually has a good guitarist. Not good enough to counteract the lyrics, but a damn good guitarist, nonetheless.

Insult Justin Bieber instead. Or that one chick who looks like a blowup-doll crossed with a clown who posed in a thong and sneakers. I forget her name. If only her talent were as ample as her ass.
