Here ‘s another post from my old blog (This is the last one, I promise you). This one’s about the lack of good rock bands in the recent music scene.
Is Rock Dead..?? (Original Publishing Date: 25.09.2008)
I am hardened ROCK fan. All you ignorant people out there, Metal (or Metchul) is NOT ROCK. Anybody walking around with a guitar doesn’t automatically become a ROCK STAR. A POP video with guitars and drums doesn’t automatically become a ROCK VIDEO.
I’m a music addict. Like those people who’ll go mad if they don’t have their quota of crack, I’ll go mad if I don’t have my 30 mins of rock everyday. Lets see why I started liking rock so much. It’s the attitude, the fun, the love of music. I was into the Backstreet Boys, ‘N SYNC and stuff but it was Blink-182 with their punk music about a ignored generation that opened my eyes. Then the rest followed – Korn, Limp Bizkit (I know they’re alt metal bands, don’t think about arguing with me about music), Matchbox Twenty, Dave Mathews Band……….
But where are they now…..???? Korn is into Industrial Metal now…Limp Bizkit is crap ever since Wes Borland left the band… Dave Mathews..??? Where are thou…???
Now to the bands which are making it big now…. Plain White T’s….Death Cab For Cutie…and so on…..ADULT ALTERNATIVE!!! POP PUNK….???? WTF man..???? PUNK IS PUNK…!!! IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE IN YOUR FACE MUSIC!!! YOU CAN”T MIX IT WITH POP!!!
Metallica is back with their highly anticipated album, Death Magnetic, which fails to arouse even a slightest bit of interest…. What happened to the band which made awesome albums like THE BLACK ALBUM, LOAD, RELOAD…the list goes on…. Now Alice In Chains And Stone Temple Pilots are gonna be back to revive the GRUNGE genre… After all, PEARL JAM with their latest album showcased how their ‘back to grunge’ sound is…its no better than the kazillion mainstream bands coming up…..
So question is…. IS ROCK DEAD….???? Its seems like so…. New bands taking the poppy route and old ones are just letting their Labels take charge of their creative control…..Its time to stick it to the man!!!!!
Look at this , even mainstream Hindi Movies are taking a leaf out of rock!!!! and I’m someone who looks down on them and I think some of the new tracks based on rock is pretty good… Look at ROCK ON!!!, the songs may not be avant grade but sure are catchy…..
