Just kicking back on this hot and humid Saturday afternoon, watching the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame show from NYC on HBO. Man, that is some great music!

But, I am of the mindset that the best R N R has yet to be recorded. That's because if I felt the best was in the past, than it would be just a memory. Looked upon like the dead...a memory.

But after 20 minutes of kicking back in the Lazeboy. I had to go to my computer and crank up the new Alice In Chains. Understand that I'm 58 years old! Working in broadcast radio has giving me the opportunity to stay current with rock.

No, it is NOT dead! If for not bands like; AIC, STP, Foo Fighetrs, NIN and a few other exciting and fresh bands.;-)

I listen to rock. I listen to pop. I find I listen to NEW music.
Back in the late 70’s when I first started going to concerts, and half way between Montreal and Boston with Lake Placid (what we called “lake acid”) just off to the side I had access to some GREAT concerts I listened to what is now called classic rock, but was rock or pop back when it was new. Bands like Jethro Tull and AC/DC. Gosh remember the summer when VanHalen was the opening act for AC/DC? In the 80’s I probably saw the group RUSH more than any other. And folk ether love or hate RUSH no in-between. Nowadays I am listening to Stained a lot, I very much enjoy Aaron Lewis. And Theory of a Dead Man, Silver Chair, Spose, Against Us,….
Yet I also very much enjoy John Hiatt, Master of disaster is my fav. All his songs really. And Old Crow Medicine Show is not rock at all but I Love um. And you know what I am listening to right now, as I type this?
This is one of the best covers around. I danced to it back when Cameo did it back in the day, but this cover by Korn, well it just rocks!!!!
If you got good speakers on your computer,(I do) well turn it up …. Word UP :)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxH2nJoiqKY&playnext_from=TL&videos=KZ6808o3xLI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxH2nJoiqKY&playnext_from=TL&videos=KZ6808o3xLI)

from Bob Seeger


So you're a little bit older and a lot less bolder
Than you used to be
So you used to shake 'em down
But now you stop and think about your dignity
So now sweet sixteens turned thirty-one
You get to feelin' weary when the work days done
Well all you got to do is get up and into your kicks
If you're in a fix
Come back baby
Rock and roll never forgets

I see we have a pair of Korn fans with Ken and Blind Ambition.

"Make Me Bad" , just one of those songs that makes me turn up the truck radio!

I'm thinking of attending the Tool concert next week in New Orleans. Big Maynard fan both with Tool and Perfect Circle.

:cool:

Dang Franco, AIC, STP, Foo Fighters...??? While I like them they are not exactly "new" rock any more. With the exception of the Foo they have been around long enough to out live at least one lead singer...or at least kick them out for drug use only to rehire and kick out again and rehire and kick out again.......
There is good new rock out there though. I believe that the best rock is made by angry YOUNG men and the above bands are not so young any more.

New Rock is an industry term that started with Nirvanna. Prior it was known as Alternative but sine Nirvanna made rock popular with the 18-29 years olds, they had to give it a new name. Granted AIC, STP Foo's et al have been on New Rock radio formats since the early 90's.

In my original post on this thread, I did give kudos to some of the newer bands, those since 2000, bands like Three Days Grace, Saving Abel, Shinedown, Cage The Elephant, etc.

Funny video but would also be a great way to get one's license yanked by the FCC.

I still get a kick out of this one.

Still laughing though.

I was actually not using the term "new" rock in radio terms but rather in new bands, say the last 2-10 years.
AIC just played here and they rocked, but they have been around for what, 15 years or more?

Yup.

Nirvanna was a defining band in rock radio and completely changed the landscape with thier 1991 album. Alternative radio changed overnight to New Rock because of them.

Seattle based grunge laid to rest all those English dance bands that dominated Alternative Radio. Nirvanna opened the door for bands like Pearl Jam, AIC and STP (San Diego) and rock was reborn. Instead of 20 radio stations in the USA playing Alternative, all of a sudden there were 250 stations playing New Rock.
