User OcelotPrince went in hard on the Reddit music community’s lack of… basically everything. As per usual, plenty of solutions were offered up in the comments…
Reddit prides itself on being the ‘front page of the internet’. /r/movies is, for the most part, about new movies. /r/soccer is about games of soccer that have recently happened. You could post your favourite scene from Fight Club. You could post your favourite goal from the 2002 World Cup. But the community has collectively decided that while those things are ok, the new stuff is the most important.
This is where /r/music totally falls over. In the last week it has popped up on my front page with Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’ and The Postal Service’s ‘Such Great Heights’, indie standards from 2008 and 2003 respectively.
