Is it true that rock has retired?

Post  pinhedz on Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:54 am

I wouldn't know, since the pinhed has hardly heard any of the chart toppers (I've heard some samplings of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, and a few others).

Here are a bunch of names I've heard--are any of them not boring?

-- Mylo Xyloto

-- Miranda Lambert

-- Jay Z

-- JLS

-- Black Eyed Peas

-- Florence and the Machine

Is there anyone else that deserves our attention?

I'm fucking 20 and I've never even heard of more than half of those people. The two that I have heard are not good.

There are still good rock bands about.





^That is a great album. It's mostly instrumental, with a couple songs sung by Jack White and a couple by Nora Jones. You hear this on all the hipster radio stations.



Here's some random rock bands:



(more Jack White)





(<beware- heavy metal)







Those last two bands are really popular with the youngsters. I don't know if they're "chart toppers" though.

The Black Keys... some people told me I should listen to them... and I finally did (now)


I think Muse's Origin of Symmetry is a great album

I'm nearly 56, born 1955, which was actually a bit too young to catch the Beatles, the Stones, the Kinks etc in their prime. I had to catch up on the early years of these and other 1960's acts once I'd started to shave regularly.

The mid-1960's-mid-1970's were a golden age, I think.

This age must be the Golden Age for today's golden agers.

I could have posted a lot of new music by older artists too, because there are plenty that are still putting out great records.

Rock died like Stephen Foster. Neutral

While doing a search of the last 30 years of hit songs--looking for a blues--I've concluded that rock really has retired.

Most of them are in a 4-bar format (typically a circle of 5ths), that repeats over and over. Good thing they got video.
