A Heavy Bass Beat Is Everyone's Silence

I've become aware that my endorsement of the line "A heavy bass line is my kind of silence" was illustrated by a Youtube video, which compresses the sound and, especially in combination with my slightly tinny computer speakers, removes much of the bass.

Well, that's awful. It's like back when I was a kid and listened to all my music on the radio. They compressed all the bass off. Allegedly this was the cause of all the high bright pop sound of the 80s. Will Youtube as a juke box for kids bring this kind of sound back? As I have no skill at precognition, I leave the question open.
