Default Re: The death of Rock n Roll?

Very good! I love the SDing band names....those are great. If I may, I will make a simple mod to your last suggestion....although I liked it in its original form, I can more accurately mirror my mindset with the following:

"Unleash" The Dinosaurs

And for those who like the sublimely stupid long band names...

"Unleash the dinosaurs so they may trample and eradicate bands having actionable phrases as names"

Lol....

True. Today's metal reminds me of 70s classic rock ... loud, fast, flashy, aggressive, exciting, grating ... mainly aimed at teenagers and early 20s.

What I have noticed is today's rock bands tend to be less eclectic - once you get a critical mass of things they start to specialise - be it job structures in workplaces, TV stations, hive animals, etc.

It's happened with bands too - I'm not seeing the eclecticism of The Beatles, The Stones, Hendrix, The Doors, The Who, Zappa, early Tubes, Led Zep, Bowie, Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Joni Mitchell, King Crimson, Queen, Eno, ELP, Hawkwind, Roxy Music, Radiohead, Gong, etc.

Get off my lawn!



Very true. I don't think I've seen as much interest in older forms by the younger generation before. Don't know what to make of that.
