You were born in the 1990s, and you have literally no time for classical music. But we want to know why...

Bach strongly disagrees.
Also, you can’t gram a concert hall.
The Royal Albert Hall wonders if you could repeat that?

Ryan is offended by this assumption.
Classical is all on CDs
*Ahem* we beg to differ.
There was never any gossip in the composer world

Tay-Tay and Kanye: eat your heart out.
It’s boring to watch live because everyone is dressed in black

To be fair... there is some truth in this. *Googles ‘sad violin song’*
There’s no beat to classical music

There’s never any WiFi in a concert hall
Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall has no time for this fake news.

D.S. knows this is B.S.
Concert halls are no place for flat whites or leaf-decorated lattes
Bach wrote his Coffee Cantata in preparation for this moment.

Brahms can’t believe you just said that.
There’s no place for hipster specs in classical music
Shostakovich knows he had these rims way before 2017.
There’s no place for emojis either
These instruments know they deserve more attention.
There's no one good-looking in classical
Eric is mightily offended.
There you have it: conclusive proof that millennials hate classical music. And if you don’t believe us... go meme it or something.
