Re: The death of Rock n Roll?
When it comes to new music, I don't think there is anything wrong with any of it...there is lots of variety, some styles being far more prominent and kinda like the zeitgeist. Personally, I don't care for any of the pop or mainstream pop country, rap and its variants, etc etc....but I still see the artistic value and talent. Don't mean I gotta listen though. Something like Nickleback is where I draw the line though....they are talented but that is pure formulaic pablum.
Amon Amarth is interesting....I check out all kinds of new bands online that I would call rock and roll, they are there....just not mainstream. I mean, it's never gonna die in my circle because I decide what to listen to and what bands to play in.
And I really despise these three name phrase bands.....Pierce The Veil....come on man, dumb!! Cage The Elephant?? These are actionable phrases.
