Study Concludes that Jazz is More “Important” Than Hip-Hop

By Alyssa Pereira

In a study conducted this week, 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair Magazine polled readers about their taste in music, what music is important, and how this generation’s music compares to previous ones. The results are pretty surprising.

First, the study asked how users discover their music, and the winner was radio (which we already knew, thanks to another study recently conducted). Next, the survey asked whether jazz or hip-hop was more “important” to music culture. An incredible 73% of those polled agreed that jazz was more important of the two, with an additional 50% of people saying that hip-hop and rap music have peaked.

When asked which artist parents would like their child to study, the Beatles just edged out Mozart with a 33% to a 32% margin. Jay-Z only took in 5%.

Pollsters also believe that this generation (by far) has the worst music of the last forty years.
