Ignore it. When you do that, it's eliminated from existence.
That is exactly what I said but in different words LOL
So, now you are contradicting yourself. (I hate it when people do that. Why can't they organize their thoughts?) You either boycott or ignore the crap that's going on today. Pick one.
I'd rather boycott it, but in a way they are essentially the same thing.
No, they ain't.

Not doing anything again, and there are no similarities. Want a hint? Name one similarity.

Anyway, Back to topic

Oh, I don't know about prog musicians, I was more talking about myself as a prog music listener lol!

Unfortunately, it only takes watching a few minutes of a pop video music show to see that I'm totally the wrong demographic for what is being sold to kids/teens these days as popular music, and even worse when each song ends by telling us we can buy it as a ringtone for our phones, etc.

I had deleted my post, but I guess you caught it before that. Here I had just been saying that people can listen to what they like and enjoy, and then I contradict myself and tell you to change your listening habits. CryConfused Sorry LOL

No problem Jude, I didn't think bad of it!

I really don't have a problem with kids/teens listening to that sort of pop music these days (although I find it a little depressing), they could get just as much enjoyment and satisfaction out of it as I do coming across some rare difficult unloveable demanding prog album!

It's kind of crazy how this thread, which was originally intended for discussing the terminology for the sake of dividing pop music as we know it into eras, descended into yet another environment about opinions on the marginal and mainstream musical poles ... in much less than 12 hours. ... Ermm ... No, it's not crazy.

Wouldn't it be 'kid's music'? As in, "Back in my day, I walked to school barefoot through the snow, and music was good."
I call this Old Fogeyism, when the Olden Dayzers reminisce about how much better everything used to be, and how everything's gone to sh*te since then, and the music of today is not as good as the music of yesterday, and how the kids have no taste anymore...

Last night, I heard my mama singing a song
Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep
Woke up this morning and my mama was gone
Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep
Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep, Chirp

... they don't write songs like that any more. Unhappy

Funny but when pop music was young, there were lots of people who really detested these new acts, like The Beatles, The Kinks, The Moodies and others. The jazzers among my older relatives made fun of me because I had such bad taste in music as they saw it. Not to speak of my grandmother, who only listened to classical music, she couldn't even stand jazz.    LOL 
Let the kids listen to Bieber, and the rest of todays popular acts. When they've grown up they'll either find something more interesting, or stop listening to music altogether because it wasn't their thing.

I think some prog fans grumble about pop because pop doesn't have much to do with rock anymore (unlike the 80s) and is mostly dance music.  Even then, I don't really see how Adele is more unpalatable than, um, Olivia Newton John.   When I was growing up, they used to broadcast live shows of Celine Dion....and I liked it very much at that time.  Shocked LOL
