Ok *deep breath*
I'm going to attempt to start an intelligent thread in the pit.

Me and a bud a currently assigned with a project concerning the relationship between rock music and culture/society/technology in the new millenium. We've come up with a couple of good examples of how these elements have affected eachother. I posted this thread to welcome a few other ideas from UG.

These are the points we've come up with:
1) Games like Guitar Hero and Rock band are bringing rock music to a wider audience.
2) Internet downloading is revolutionizing the music business, both by starting to make record companies obsolete and allowing bands to independently put out music.
3) Social networking sites allow bands to bring their music to a wider audience.

I get the feeling i might be leaving out a few of rock music's affects on society, but those were the first topics we've come up with. Please feel free to add anything we might have forgot.

Thanks from Johnny

Those last two points are more about music in general rather than just rock and roll. You should talk about new innovations for rock instruments, i.e. Gibson Robot guitar, etc.

I thought that was mainstream music. Music that's like "all da niggaz in da hood, steal dem money, damnit Im sow cuul"...well, that's the effect it has on teenagers in this country. They're thinking...Oh, that's so cool. "Gangster"style. Wow. And they're raised in completely normal homes
I'm pretty sure theres alot of ****tards who listen to rock too though. xD

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.
