    I did. It's just very weird that there was some very selective rot when it came to storage media that only affected tapes with music recorded after 1959 or so.

    And I also won my own bet, because I knew you'd bring in Agatha :D

    EMPs likely erased any large deposits of holotapes containing FUTURE music. Same reason all the cars died and are stuck in the roads.

    We never beted on anything, nor does it change the unrelated point made about Agatha, the Lonesome Drifter, and Magnolia making music post war.

    So EMPs destroyed holotapes with music, but not any of the other holotapes made pre-war. That's a very selective EMP blast.

    Tons of holotapes got destroyed during the war... or do you actually believe the few we find intact actually represents every holotape made before the war?

    I'm honestly not sure if you're being serious at this point because of how absurd what you just implied is.

    He is suggesting that at least one piece of music should have realistically surviced. Instead there isn't any. At all. Like none.....

    On the other hand, the music style being contemporary is the least of our "troubles". It's entirely plausible that a 50's-60's alternate history, may very well have not created those songs until much later then in the "real" timeline

    We'd be better served to just admit that nobody at Bethesda can differentiate between "vision of the world in the 2000s inspired by 1950s science!/world of the future ideas" and plain old "1950s"

    Arguing about what is plausible with the guy who will never admit how implausible his own claims are, is not going to end well or anytime soon.

    What? Gen 3 synths are basically programmable human clones!
    Not to speak of any holotapes in vaults...

    You call that absurd and yet defend the fact that it appears only modern music was destroyed yet not old music okay...

    There is post-war music, but I'm rather miffed that there's no future prewar music. However, they don't listen to 50s music exclusively. There's at least one song on RNV or MMR that's from the late nineties, so... Yeah.

    All the music was from pre 21st century. Survives several centuries but nothing else does. Makes sense.

    Here's my stray observation on that song:

    I fucking hate it.

    I had assumed"Crawl Out Through the Fallout" was a joke song written for the game at first.....

    I forgot about the radio besides the its use as the radio signal finder for those quests.

    It is simply likely that the EMP destroyed all the music that was kept readily at hand for regular use, but managed to spare a lot of the music that had been put into storage. I mean, my iPod is on a table by a window, but I've got vinyl LPs in the basement. If an EMP from a nuclear bomb were to go off, the iPod would be toast but the records likely would not.

    But that assumes that all the music that was placed in the vaults was over 100 years old when the bombs fell. Surely there was some modern music that ended up in the vaults or a backwater that didn't get a lot of EMP effects?

    THe apocalypse destroyed all the holotapes except the ones with 50's music or the hundreds of Holotapes we find just lying on desks on destroyed buildings (like the ones on Nick Valentine's crappy companion quest).

    Are people even serious with these kind of defenses? Gotta be an apologist even for the dumbest shit!

    Why is Valentine's quest crappy? I haven't done in yet.
