When you read about music in history books, they only mention the most famous artists, like Mozart, Beethoven, and Stravinsky. When this time is in later history books, it's sad that all the crappy artists will be talked about and not the amazing ones, amirite?

It makes sense. History books should talk aboot what musicians made the largest impacts during specific time periods.

And some kids in the future think they'll be so cool because they listen to "classic" artists.

It doesn't get more classic than:
"Hell Yeah
Drink it up, drink-drink it up,
When sober girls around me, they be actin like they drunk
They be actin like they drunk, actin-actin like they drunk."

The crappy artists will likely disappear within ten or fifteen years. If they haven't, then they have obviously done something to impact our culture, in which case they should be mentioned in history books since they made a significant contribution to society.

A) Hipster much?
B) If we're going to talk about the last 50-75 years (since when talking about great artists, they aren't just talking about artists in one decade), artists like John Lennon and Elvis will probably be discussed in history classes. Unless Justin Bieber does something significant for this society, he's not going to be mentioned in history books.
