classic, altough there are some good things in modern but just a few indie and stoner rocks bands.
Looking for a new sig!

The underground has always been and always will be good. By contrast, the mainstream has always and will always suck with few exceptions.

But I'll vote classic because The Clash were kinda sorta a classic rock band (not really but I want to see the poll results).

There may be slightly less innovation in rock than there was in the 60s for example, because there are much less taboos left to break (both musically and lyrically) and there isn't that sense of unity, liberation and revolution there was back then.

But rock is also much more diverse than it was. Throughout the years, it got scattered into all kinds of subgenres. Many of these may have their own forum on UG, but that's because UG is almost purely rock-oriented and such a distinction is necessary. However, if you look at music as a whole, there's a lot going on in rock nowadays because technically, any form of metal, punk or -core falls under rock. If you add up all the great bands in the current rock subgenres, you'll find that there's a lot of excellent rock music being made still, and that quite a lot of progress has been made in the past decade or two.

But still some people act as if in 5+ centuries of documented music, mankind was only able to make good music in the span of two decades...

Eh, personally I prefer modern rock music

I find it so much more interesting to listen to than the classic stuff

And seriously, if you think there is no innovation on modern rock music you aren't looking hard enough
#14
Modern fo' sho'. More diverse IMO. Many great bands around right now.

clasic rock will shit on any modern rock any day... all modedrn rock is like "oh im so depressed, please kill me" or "im angry bacase i wanna be" or just a race up and down arperios. no real range of emotions or soul
#16
I don't know: Beck, The Flaming Lips, Wilco, Sonic Youth, The Subways, Spoon, The Decemberists, TV On The Radio, The Strokes, The Hives, The Apples In Stereo, The White Stripes, New Transmissions, The Shins, etc. Quite a bit of musical talent being thrown around these days, so I'm gonna say modern. Classic rock is good and all, but as St. Bono once said, "Don't believe in the sixties/the golden age of pop/you glorify the past/as the future dries up."

Your a little quick to judge.

I don't get it. In the 70's, Zeppelin was modern rock.

In the 2030's, Oasis or Pearl Jam or someone will probably be called "classic rock".
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

*sigh*


You do realize putting this thread in the Classic Rock forum isn't the best thing to do if you want to get unbiased poll results, right?
