Plus people like to mock crap, which leads to that same crap getting more youtube hits and gains more popularity. We have a ton of great artists in this generation though, The black keys are great, foo fighters are awesome, and bands like silversun pickups can match other bands what were like them in the past. Me and my friend were talking about what people tend to like, and he pointed to a study that said that the music you like when you are roughly our age... tends to be the music you like for the rest of your life. That makes sense to me, most old people around me love acdc and stuff like that... the music they liked when they were younger.
