I wish they had Spotify and Pandora and such when I was in middle and high school. I mean, I know I was lucky to have Napster as a means of finding new music without randomly dropping 20 bucks on a CD because I might just like it, but I can't help but think that my musical horizons might be even more broad had I been given the opporunity to incessantly stream music and receive formulaic recommendations. Impressive technology, for sure. What weird random indie rock bands from nowhere, USA might I have found, and what would it have changed?
