1 I like rock, and a lot of alternative (rock) music as well.. can't stand modern hip-hop, electronica, and this 'new' country.. i heard someone blaring Taylor Swift the other day, and i almost had to run to the restroom -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on July 17, 2013, 4:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I'm sure there are plenty of good rock bands out there still. It's just a matter of finding them. If there's one thing I miss about being a teenager, it's going to record/cd stores and venues that had unknown/barely known bands. There were good and bad experiences that came with it but ultimately you found the bands/groups you were looking for. Same can be said today. Probably, on a more broader scale with the internet and with more bands being independent. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 10, 2013, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Rock isn't dead, not even close. If you base your music knowledge off of mainstream radio, then yes, you might think that it has died. How could you not when it's Justin Bieber, Robin Thicke, Bruno Mars, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, hip-hop artist, electronic dance music, etc. over and over? There are still lots of bands and artists coming out with solid rock. You can find them on YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, satellite radio, college/local radio stations, concerts, just to name a few places to discover new music. Some of my favorite "new" rock bands include Vampire Weekend, Muse, Imagine Dragons, Spoon, Queens of the Stone Age, just to name a couple off the top of my head... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 8, 2013, 6:24 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
4 And there always will be. Those who proclaim "Rock is dead" remind me of the mid-19th-century head of the U.S. Patent Office who declared his job to be no longer necessary since, according to him, everything that could possibly be invented had been by then. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 11:02 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 There are alot of bands in rock that have boned (Metallica) however, there is always a new rock band that keeps the genre going. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 29, 2011, 5:48 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 (more crickets) Dol, you're good at drive-by criticism, but you have a habit of bugging out when called on to back it up. A mere statement that something sucks, with no effort to elaborate, carries all the weight of a feather. Surely you must have a persuasive - or at least thought-provoking - defense of your assertion that rock is dead. Why withhold it from us? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 25, 2011, 3:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Prove what? You're the one who claims, in typical sweeping DolFan hyperbolic overkill fashion, that "rock is dead". Yet you have written nothing which backs up that claim. I could offer evidence to you that you are mistaken, in the form of a list of very good bands of, say, the last fifteen years. (And none of them have members in their 50s or 60s, perish the thought; dinosaur bands on the comeback trail are an irrelevancy as far as I'm concerned.) I could send you links to YouTube vids of these bands. I could send you stuff from my own mp3 collection. If you wanted to exchange email addresses with me, I'd be happy to expand your mind on this matter. Rock is neither dead nor particularly ill. (Neither is metal.) The music business, as it's currently structured, might be in serious trouble - and I'm rather pleased that it is - but the product itself is just fine. Oh, and by the way, where I come from, a "diatribe" is an angry denunciation of something or someone. My previous defense of rock music was neither angry nor denunciatory. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 2:33 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 And my response to that diatribe is as follows: Meh. Prove it. And stuff by established acts whose members are in their late 50s and 60s doesn't count. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 6:54 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Most of the previous posts on this subject appear to be written by wheezy geezers stuck in the '60s and '70s. Folks, rock has not boned. Neither has metal. Both are constantly being re-energized by new ideas - progressive, glam, punk, post-punk, New Wave, thrash metal, death/doom metal, gothic, industrial, college rock, indie/alternative in its various forms, grunge, Britpop, dream pop/shoegazer, emo, nu metal, metalcore, rap rock, and on and on - and there is plenty of interesting new stuff being composed all the time, as anyone under the age of thirty would be happy to tell you. (For the record, I'm in my 50s but am not fixated on the music of my youth like the rest of my annoyingly sentimental generation, preferring instead to follow and appreciate the continuing evolution of the greatest music revolution since Bach first sat down at his harpsichord.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 2:29 pm - (-3 votes) - Login to Vote
10 it did, but I still listened to it and liked some of the music out there. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 3, 2011, 4:47 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I think Rock went mainstream long before 1998. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on January 3, 2011, 2:20 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 over course I mean before 1998, when it went mainstream. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 2, 2011, 6:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

14 I don't have much against grunge (or the post-grunge bands that have been popular since the late 90s), although I definitely prefer stuff like Queen, Journey, Metallica, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 18, 2010, 4:34 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 There seems to be a resurgence of the arena/"feel good" rock, lately. Thank God!! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 18, 2010, 9:29 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Rock died with the disease called Grunge infected it and slowly killed it. -- Submitted By: (BrianBuck) on January 15, 2010, 8:51 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Rock is dead. The date of death was 1999, when all of pop culture BTF. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 17, 2009, 2:51 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
18 too much corporate control in the music biz.rock music was revolutionary in the 50's and 60's,and reached its creative peak with many of the artists of the 70's. however,there was a lot of corporate influence beginning to creep in as the 70's came to a close.every decade since then has gotten worse,although there were a few bright spots here and there ,like the early days of the grunge movement.I love rock music,but modern rock totally blows,everyone sounds the same.and dont even get me started on hip-hop. big time corporations ruin everything..... -- Submitted By: (EricP) on June 9, 2009, 2:43 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Of course rock music rocks. It can't not rock or it wouldn't be rock. Anyone who imitates rock doesn't rock but it isn't rock so rock music will always rock anyway. From Elvis to Chuck Berry, Bill Haley to The Beatles, Lynyrd Skynyrd to Led Zeppelin to ZZ Topp to Van Halen to the Rolling Stones to the Who to Journey to REO Speedwagon to 38 Special to the Allman Brothers Band to the Grateful Dead, and everywhere in between. They all rock. If any group should break up or it's members die, they still rock. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 3, 2009, 7:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
