Skunk Anansie Slam Muse For Dubstep Claim
Skunk Anansie have slammed Muse for saying that dubstep is the new rock n' roll. Muse frontman Matt Bellamy had said last week: "The moshpit has moved from guitars and gone towards the laptop. With the song we're trying to see if we can challenge the laptop. "We created something that's dubsteppy, but we wanted to see if we could do it with real instruments. We wanted to ask, 'Can rock bands compete with what these guys are doing?'" But Skunk Anansie guitarist Ace say Muse are just jumping on a bandwagon. "It's not the new rock'n'roll, because rock'n'roll is the new rock'n'roll," he told Gigwise. "Dance and dubstep are two different art forms. They jump on the art form to be trendy." Singer Skin agrees that rock has something that dubstep can never counter. "The world is missing a great big fat rock album," she said. "When someone is playing the guitar there is a spiritual connection that you cannot get from a CD sample... and that's why I think rock music will never die." While it is inaccurate to say dubstep has replaced rock, it's fair to say that it's connecting with young people in a way that rock music once did exclusively. So what can rock do to remind live music fans that guitars can make an almighty live sound too? Share your ideas in the comments.
