"yes actually after the 80's music began to become worse"
The young consumers of music had grown up with disco (perhaps 70s soft rock or folk rock) and had heard the anti-musical punk rock attitude. Where were the commercially-minded composers and performers to go during the period of glam rock and hair bands? Grunge and boy bands seem pretty predictable as we look back.
The level of sophistication of the young people with discretionary income has been key in the most popular categories, since the late 1930s.
