Dylan..."Modern music is like static"

Bob Dylan said today's recordings sound "atrocious," and even the songs on his new album sounded much better in the studio than on disc.

"I don't know anybody who's made a record that sounds decent in the past twenty years, really," Dylan told Rolling Stone.

His idea regarding the music industry's complaints that illegal downloading means people are getting their music for free, he said, "Well, why not? It ain't worth nothing anyway. You listen to these modern records, they're atrocious, they have sound all over them," he added. "There's no definition of nothing, no vocal, no nothing, just like ... static."

Dylan is returning with his first recording in five years Modern Times, next Tuesday.

He said it (when it comes to mainstream pop anyway)!! Why on earth would I EVER pay for an Asslee Simpson album, or a Paris Hilton album???
Well, they're not even worth the dl, so nevermind...
