The "old" meme always cracks me up, because people don't enjoy computer generated music, that makes them "old"?
You sound young, easily led and clueless.
The most current generation of young people seem to buy into ANY hype flung at them and it's not just about music. They are a generation of sheep and most of their music is not original, it's all been done before and when you try to explain this to them, you will be dubbed "old".
Hipsters, for instance, are utterly pathetic, talk about a bunch of sheep. They are always claiming they are totally orginal in their style of dressing, the artisinal food they eat (ie: fresh food my Italian grandmother made!), their music and everything else. Their entire persona had been mined from so many different generations, it's a joke, which most of them still don't get!
The hipsters' dress sense is 1950s/60s Beatnik, their are into Mid Century furniture, well, you get the idea, it's ALL been done before. Ye they think they discovered the wheel.
The biggest job is these trustafarians moving into ghettos like Bushwick, Greenpoint etc, calling themselves 'pioneers' on their wealthy parents dime.
Get your facts straight before you call others "old".
The fact is thee is very little new in music, that's how someone like Madonna got so popular when she hit the scene. Bringing such extreme theatrics to music was a first, yet the young people buying into it seemed unaware that she was basically a Las Vegas revue set to dance/pop music!
Madonna was lucky enough to hit upon a formula so many people enjoyed, her fame had very little to do with her actual music. There was very little in her actual music which could have been called 'new', it was basically rehashed dance beats mixed with pop music.
A dark haired Lady Gaga was pounding her piano in downtown NYC clubs, until she transformed herself into an aloof blond alien with a penchant for smoking weed, then instant fame.
Skrillex' popularity will pass just like any other 'next big thing' in music.
