I was thinking today.


We all have rough ideas of the kinds music dads regularly listen to, based on where they lived, when they grew up, etc. Even other people's dads. Just general consensus "dad rock".

Stuff like Boston, Phil Collins, Rush, The Bee Gees, Billy Idol, Whitesnake, Eddie Money, AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult, Jethro Tull, etc.

It's nothing AGAINST any of those bands, or anything wrong with them, but it's just generally music lots of dads listen to.


So, what do you think this generation will mainly get down on, in a pretty general way, and be the future "dad rock"?

Oasis. They are just as tired and boring as most "dad rock". Or even more tired.

They'll be all "Dad what the ****, why'd you leave the keys up on the table? What kind of drugs were you guys doing in the 90's and 2000's?"

and

"They don't even play 18-stringed computer guitars, that's so lame."

I think the Dad Rock of the next generation is just going to be the same bands as the previous generation with a few additions. Bands like Nickelback, Creed, Hinder, Foo Fighters, and a few others I can't think of.

I can see Daft Punk getting dadrock status in a few years.

I think a better question would be

What band debuting between 2000/2010 won't be considered 'Dad Rock' by 2030?

I can think of none.

My parents (and other parents I know) don't even listen to 'dad rock'. They listen to Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, etc. I expect this trend to continue.

Arctic Monkeys are pretty good for that if they keep making themselves look older than they actually are.

probably pop punk stuff

seriously tho anyone who dismisses music because it's "dad rock" is smelly and pretentious

f*cking hipsters

This is why I wanted to clarify in my post that I didn't find anything about it wrong; I love all of the bands I listed, in some fashion.

But, yeah, disliking a band simply because of the people who listen to it is kind of absurd.


Except ICP. Juggalos. *shudder*

Dubstep, maybe?

I realised the other day that any dubstep song is just a regular electronic song with weird "wwwweeeeaaahhhhaaa!" sounds thrown in at random times.

I listen to "dad rock" now, so I guess it will be granddad rock.

As far as this generation, I haven't the slightest inclination of care.

Most pop punk stuff, couple of thrash metal bands, Oasis, Coldplay (deffo), maybe some Daft Punk, obviously Pearl Jam,
Stoya moaning while reading literature and Sasha Grey's deep&edgy music project, Soft genres, Hard genres, specific genres of stimulation, entire orchestra's of orgasmic quality, all in high fidelity without a Spunkify subscription, uhhhhhh

...

Maybe Hannah Montana will do.

Wow, you really don't know anything about electronic music.

And Mumford & Sons. It'll be Mumford & Sons.
