You’ve likely said this, unless you are like 16, “Music isn’t as good as when I was growing up” or “they don’t make bands like they used to”, and this isn’t because the quality of music and band’s has gone down since you were in high school…it actually has to do with your brain. Say for example, I thought Green Day was the greatest band of all time growing up. It didn’t get better than Dookie, and Insomniac. But I liked these guys when I was at a very developmental state. In fact, a new study suggests that between the ages of 11 and 16 is when most people create their musical tastes. Obviously you can enjoy new bands, songs, and types of music, but it seems the jams you grew up on will always hold that special place in your heart.
