Moby Explains Why Music Today is Shit

by Paul Cashmere on May 5, 2019

in News

Moby had one of those “old guy conversations” with Bill Maher this week and they discussed why music today is pretty ordinary.

“I’ve got Spotify on my phone and when I first got it I thought I would hear all this new music but immediately I began using it as my nostalgia machine,” Moby told Maher. “Spotify is basically my high school playlist. My musical tastes end around 1984. Modern music might be great but it can’t complete with The Clash or Public Enemy or John Lennon or Neil Young, on and on and on.”

Moby says he started doing what he is doing because he isn’t a good singer. “Originally I wanted to be a singer but I’m not a great singer so I had to learn to do everything else. I wanted to be Bono or David Bowie but my singing voice is mediocre”.

“But with Auto-tune no-one is a shitty singer,” Maher said.

“I do like complaining about young people,” Moby added.
