Rock was much better in the past. Guns n Roses, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix to name just a few greats..............now, well, now we have the arctic monkeys and razorlight and as mentioned above fallout boy............yeah, they are great.


Wait a minute, the ****ing suck ass!
#8
Wait, didn't guns n roses suck too?

Oh yeah they did.

You want real rock? Buddy Holly, Lil' Richard, Elvis Presley, the Beatles. That was the good shit. Cuz it was kinda, sorta real.

Now all you've got for real is scandanavian death metal, and a few surviving punk bands.

Simply, compare

Today's biggest rock bands:
Green Day
Sum 41
Blink 182
Scandinavians\swedish death metal bands
Linkin Park

Now, the list of the 60's:
The Beatles
Yes
Cream
Led Zeppelin
The Who

Etc

See?

Also, dominant genres from now and back then:
Now:
Pop punk
Death Metal
and.. Thats it?

Then:
Progressive Rock
Psychedalic Rock
Hard Rock
Southern Rock
And much much more

See my point?

But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave

There were alot of crap bands in the 60's as well as there are alot of good rock bands today.

Agreed.

Although to be fair music back then was a lot better imo.

But that's probably due to the fact that ideas are running out and it's becoming harder to be original because most things have been done.

Fine then, if your cant compare greenday to led zeppelin. Think of the best band today and compare it with the best band in the 60's/70's. The results are the same, bands nowadays suck. One cant help thinking the reason is drugs.............all the bands back in the day took them and the music was great, now we have to listen to crap.

Black Label Society(Zakk is good with Ozzy though)
Jet
Razorlight
The Raconteurs
Tool
The Killers
The Fratellis
Marylin Manson(the wanker)
Slipknot
Korn
Linkin Park
The Bravery
Blink 182,+44 and all such related bands
Rancid

Also not forgetting many other shit rock bands(granted the good ones are ****ing awesome ~ Sabbath :down but there is so much bollocks out there on commercial rock radio and stuff. Other things Sabu thinks are gay include darkangel24 and his big fat momma

Define best............well, im only going with people like arctic monkeys, razorlight and other similar bands that are never off the tv. But if you compare who you think are the best bands right now and compare them with bands in the 60/70/80's the results are the same, they were better back then. To Deadmen, if you take drugs and still suck..........all you have there is Kurt Cobain all over again.

I was wondering the same... =/

Seriously, why the hell do you guys feel the need to debate this stuff? Music preference is an opinion, nothing more. If you like the older stuff, good for you, go listen to it, but don't bitch and complain about how society is forcing you to listen to modern music, because it isn't. I get through almost every day without having to listen to music I don't like. It's not hard.

rock in the past actually had feeling and it took every member of the bands talent and formed into one. Bands today like fall out boy panic at the disco and all of those types of bands just yelp into the microphone and you cant hear what they are saying and their guitar and drum parts for the most party sound the same. So my answer is Yes Rock in the Past is better. But dont get me wrong there are some bands around that are good in my opinion. Dont forget Van Halen could be coming back to the studio if they dont kill eachother on tour.

Anyone who complains about modern music is simply not listening to the right music

simple as that.

Around? Around here there may be a lot, but in reality, I wouldnt have another 50 metalheads within a 5 mile radius.

Some.
Call.

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

... What? They're obviously doing something right, they've got millions of fans around the world. If you don't like them, deal with it, it's your god damn opinion. I don't know why so many people around here find that such a tough concept to grasp.

dude your simply taking one of the worst bands around (no offense to MCR fans, as there are a few) and comparing it to decades of incredible music, old stuff is better, usually, but there are plenty of good bands around nowadays.

And anyone who picks one awful band to some up an entire decade of music knows nothing of music what-so-ever: Tw*t

PS these repetitive threads piss me off.

i agree with pan-tallica

if you dont like these new guys, then just dont listen to them.

personally I think there are many decent modern bands, you just need to know where to find them

...Symphony X... Nevemore... Arch Enemy... and tons of local emerging bands

that said, if you have such a problem, then get your guitar and buddies and DO something about it.

my philosophy is just... play your guitar.. thats it

i believe Mr.Zappa had a more thorough way of putting it

SHADDUP AND PLAY YER GUITAR
