What five things killed rock & roll?
« on: July 01, 2004, 07:32:51 PM »

1.  MTV....80's up to the present.
2.  Rap....what rock meant in the 60's/70's to the young is what rap is now.
3. Nirvana.....killed 80's rock from Motley Crue, Bon Jovi & Ratt with a useless rock star & so called music genius Kurt Cobain
4.  Madonna....she put the M in MTV with her music videos along with trying to cause so called controversy while her music is secondary & being a mediocre singer, actress & performer.
5.  Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake(manufactured artists)

You say MTV killed music in the 80's but then say Nirvana killed it in the 90's. Huh? Anyway, Nirvana resurrected it from it's hairy abyss! All hail Kurt Cobain. ;)

Rock isn't dead....just look at the thriving indie scene and the great music coming out...it's just that the good rock isn't in the mainstream, so you won't casually notice it.

www.pitchforkmedia.com That site will show you that it's still in existence.

I agree with Rowdy, rock isn't dead. You don't need to wait for the media to feed you with a spoon, there are a lot of good rock bands out there.

I'll tell you what killed rock and roll.  VAN-FREAKIN-HALEN!!!!!  One of the worst things to happen to the music scene.

There's still some good bands.  Oasis is one of the best bands ever, and they're still goin.  Although I think if the Gallagher brothers can't pull their sh*t together then they won't be around for much longer.  Pearl Jam is also a great band.  It's not dead yet.  Maybe there will be a revival before too long.

but there are new bands that rock as well. Take Velvet Revolver for example, they are an excellent hard rock band. Their debut album Contraband is amazing and it's on my CD player all the time.

Audioslave is another excellent supergroup

Chris Cornell was in another supergroup called Temple of the Dog.....the album went unnoticed until two years later when Soundgarden and Pearl Jam exploded onto the scene. "Hunger Strike" actually has Eddie Vedder doing co-vocals, became a big hit, etc...love the album.

Oh yeah, I like Audioslave too.  Chris Cornell has one of the most amazing voices in pop music history.  The thing about Audioslave is that all their songs sound like stripper music, but they still rock so hard that you don't really notice.

And I'm also vaguely familiar with Temple of the Dog.  I still prefer Oasis and Pearl Jam over any other bands today.  Here's to hoping Oasis puts out another album within a year! *crossing fingers*

well, that's your opinion and it seems that it doesn't apply to most of the people here that seem to like these bands.
I would like you to elaborate a little bit more and tell me how both of those bands 'suck'.

I'm a humongous Pearl Jam fan myself, strutter, although Riot Act was disappointing and they could've selected better songs for half of Lost Dogs.....they're still one of the best live acts in the world though, and I hope to finally see them on their next tour.

Oh man, I love Riot Act!  I think it's one of their best albums for sure.  It's pretty diverse and has so much great stuff on it.  I particularly like "Love Boat Captain" and "1/2 Full".  I also liked Lost Dogs.

I thought Riot Act was great at first....but after a while I got sick of it, it didn't hold up like Binaural.....I Am Mine is memorable and I just LOVE "Green Disease" but the rest didn't hold well with me (although I find "Arc" rather creative)...

Lost Dogs had some great stuff....granted, I'd heard most of it before, which is kind of why I was disappointed....the two tracks on the Merkinball EP, Breath, State of Love and Trust, where was all that stuff? There's still about a disc worth of great stuff though (including classics like "Last Kiss" and my favorite PJ song, "Yellow Ledbetter"), but the only previously unreleased track that I really love is "Undone".
