Is this "official" or personal opinion? I find the Do-Wop era of Rock and the rock of the late 50's and early 60's to be the best. Can't include clips as work prevents me from getting such content.

Definitely the most interesting period of Rock music, my favorite bands are Led Zepplin, The Band, Grateful Dead late 60s/70s style music mainly Blues Rock. Sadly I am the only one in my group of friends who likes this kind of music.

I don't even know what emo is. I really don't care either. I do know that the people who listen to it like to show their non conformity by dressing like everyone else who listens to it. How nonconformist in a conformist kind of way.

Rap is just stupid these days. If you listen to the new stuff it is just repeat repeat repeat, spouting off out themselves, and made up words. In the 1980s you could understand everything the rapper said, today it is just mush. Rap warps your brain. The students who I have had that listen to mostly rap are dumber, meaner, and lazy. The students who I have who listened to rock did better on tests and were much friendlier. Even stoners who jam to Slayer and Metalica score way better on tests. Seven years of teaching in Detroit and metro Detroit has taught me that.

New Country sucks too. Give me the classics. I stopped buying new C&W in 1995. I like my country stars drunk and or stoned.

Quentin Tarantino tried to bring it back. This is one of the most classic scenes. Micheal Madsen's dance is priceless. I have been trying to learn it here at work during our slow season. Watch him from 3:12 to 3:33 the best part of the dance.

One classic tune and a classic movie making at it's greatest.

Sat behind Edgar on a DL777 (stuck in steerage when the earlier flight got cancelled and lost my upgrade....the horror!) from LAX to ATL back in late July. Chatted him up and the band members on their way to Foxwoods Casino in NY.

Quoting Superfly (Thread starter):
new country

Not Interested...but some of the newer groups that do Alt Country or Americana type music are pretty good. Give me Willie, Waylon, and Johnny any day though for great country.

Fucked out...I was trying to keep it clean for the kiddies. I've just gone beyond Rush in my lifetime. They just don't do anything for me anymore. Kind of like hearing anything from the "10" album by Pearl Jam. Two notes into Jeremy, Alive, etc. and I'm changing the channel.

After reading RicciPettit's post, I can understand what you mean.  rotfl 


Now mentioning RUSH and Pearl Jam in the same post is just WRONG.
I never got in to the grunge thing. I understand what you mean about a band that just doesn't do it for you anymore. However, Xanadu does it for me every time.  Cool

I know. Just the best example I could come up with at the time of two groups that make me change the channel when I hear the first few notes.

Get back to me in 30 years if these bands you reference stand the test of time. The 70s may have been cheesy to the extreme (sorry Superfly but you know they were) but I'll take music from then over the no hit wonder emo crap that you hear on commerical radio today.

Sadly grunge killed off glam/hair metal. Yes it was silly but the glam rockers knew how to party and always had hot chicks in their videos. Shredding was cool at it takes talent to do that. I was living in Los Angeles during the glam years of the late 1980s.
Grunge was just anger and no talent.

I never said they were emo. I just questioned what their staying power will be in 30 years compared to the bands we have referenced so far versus the various crap, emo or otherwise, that is on the radio today.

It was almost dead at the point but you are correct in that it sealed the deal. I love hair metal myself. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll!

And 70s rock had a lot of themes about rambling on, flying, sex with young women, evil women, and the like. Good stuff!

Quoting Superfly (Reply 21):

Some of them had talent. I'll give Pearl Jam credit for their later stuff but I just can't listen to the 10 album anymore. But at the end of the day you can only have so many songs about how much your life sucks, your parents didn't love you, etc. before you go the way of Cobain himself and eat the business end of a gun.

Twisted Sister and Poison are my two favorite 80s hair bands.

They did have hot chicks. Grunge chicks were usually hideous
