It’s always weird to hear those outside of the EDM scene talk about the ills of EDM. For all of their “these kids and their newfangled sounds,” they don’t sound any better than the grown-ups we imagine they slandered for slamming the music of their day. I don’t know how USA Today even got on the subject of EDM with Tom Petty (we figure it was a larger issue he took with today’s youth and their music, but did he bring it up or did they?), but I always try to ignore commentary like this:
“Watch people play records? That’s stupid. You couldn’t pay me to go. I’m not oversimplifying it. That’s what’s going on. I don’t think it would be any fun without the drugs. It’s a drug party.”
