IMO, we usually like the music that's exposed to us during our lifetime. So, the music that we grew up with interests us. This is a reason why some people might miss the "good old days" when the music was great (to them)
Now, I'll admit that some old songs are pretty good, but imagine if millennials and Gen Z people grew up listening to what our past generations listened to? We would've like the music that they listened to.
I also understand that some of today's songs can be sexual or inappropriate, but it's just the nature of music in today's world. I can't tell you how big music is apart of people's lives, including mine. I mean, I feel great when I like a new song that just came out or a song from the past that I really like. I admire people and how hard they work to create such great music. Even if some people may criticize autotuning and certain noises in today's music, it sounds great to me and they should feel proud that they created something that people like.
On an extra note, they also don't seem to care if their music is viewed as inappropriate. That's because it's a business to them, so whatever works for them is good enough in their own opinion.
