What happened to Rock & Roll????
So, I used to be able to avoid the terrors of modern Rock & Roll, but due to a major income cutback I no longer have access to my sirius satellite radio. I am forced to listen to AM/FM on my unordinarily long commute here in Atlanta. The AM stations here are very weak and seem to lose signal at night. So, I listen to the rock station and it certainly is not the only one that just sucks. With bands like Coldplay, System of A Down, Fallout Boy, Blink 182, 3 doors Down, Nickelback, My Chemical Romance, Maroon 5, and many others leading the pack; I just don't like where rock'n'roll has gone and can't imagine where it is headed.
I grew up and began to appreciated the older stuff my parents listened to a lot more. (Zeppelin, Allman Brothers, The Police, Feetwood Mac, and many others that I listened too when I was young) But this isn't a phase of mine personally, this really is a crisis of talentless musicians not writing their own stuff and just performing other people's songs to make a living.
It truly has become a sad world when our musicians are too lazy to do their own work.
