He told The Mirror that he is fed up of groups reuniting years after their heyday.
"It drives me potty to be honest and I am sick of seeing it," he said.
"It is big business at the moment and I find it really disappointing... all the time that is spent on bands reforming and nostalgia.
"What about the new bands, or young bands, coming in which don't get a look in?"
Weller continued: "I don't know what the reason is. Why is it so prevalent? Is it because people stick to what they know or what they are comfortable or safe with?"
The 54-year-old former Jam and Style Council frontman also emphasised that it is the lack of new material and experimentation that he finds frustrating.
"I think I come from a time when all the artists I grew up with and I loved always used to try and push the boundaries and there doesn't seem so much of that really," he said.
"It is the same sort of thing, and I find it disappointing."
Weller, who recently compared The X Factor to Peppa Pig, admitted that despite being outspoken, he doesn't listen to criticism of his own work.
"It is nice to make a record and people like it; and it's encouraging. But, equally, if people wouldn't have liked it I would still think it was a great record," he said.
Weller is due to play at The Greek theatre in Los Angeles this October, before embarking on a series of concert dates in Japan.
