Is rock really dying? Or is there a new era of the next big band awaiting to surface? What do you think?

I actually think rock is coming back
recently in my area a lot of people have been moving on from the rap phase and are into more popular rock or even a little but of classic like AC DC
unfortunately rap still lingers
and not even the stuff thats kind of OK but all the stuff that makes you want to hit someone in the face.

this thread is ridiculous... of course rock isn't dying - people are still playing rock, right? bands are still shelling out hard riffs and sick solos right?
#13
the Jonas Brothers
they are totally going to save the degraded, horrible piece of pop garbage that rock has become
true, awesome rock as a mainstream artform is pretty much dead

Sadly, Guitar Hero is sort of saving rock music.


Ya i'm expecting a wave of Metallica shirts to hit my school after GH:Metallica comes out.
#17
i will say where are the bands in this generation like AC/DC was in the early eighties? there is no edge to rock anymore.
#18
To be honest, if you want what we used to get from Rock, we should be moving onto sub genres of metal or some sort..

That's a guess.

rock n roll isnt dead its just harder to find something new thats not **** or not a copy of older bands like Zeppelin or Acca Dacca

dont get me wrong bands who base there styles on older bands are full of win (Airbourne a good example) most bands are a collecton of styles from other bands
Metallica an older example (has roots in sabbath, thin lizzy, and a great number more)

but i just cannot get into those poppy radio spamed bands (eg the one in the quote)thats not rock -activates flameshield-

Different styles of music are presenting themselves now and people are either embracing it or not.

Brand New will save music. Just you wait.

That probably won't happen.
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some of us crash land, some of us eject...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new

New album this summer. Mark my words, it will descend from the heavens on a beam of light, as the clouds part and God himself issues the press release.

Backing vocals will be done by a choir of angels.

Haha, I believe you there, but a true artist is never understood in their own time
Either way, it'll be awesome

if you mean will rock ever be mainstream again, then I say the answer is no and that's the way it should be.

It's like asking if mozart will ever be in the top 40

It will always be there for people like us who actually like music, unfortunately people who don't like music will still keep buying the pumped on steroids, manufactured, grind yo ass in ma face, breathy vocals and banal improvs (a a ooowwww) which is the current trend until simon cowell and pete waterman decide what to sell them next.

people asked the same thing about crooners......

The thing is, rock IS mainstream. Crappy as it may be, is nu-metal not rock?

To me, electronic music is where the innovation is at the moment, so we'll expect to see more dance elements in rock, which could go either way and be **** (like enter shikari, nu rave etc) or be good.

Electronic music will be in 3 years time what jangly guitar using, regionally accented "landfill indie" music is today. A huge walking cliché of a genre suffocating in its own flatulence.
