Music died 400 years ago.


Wat? In the 1600's? That's before Mozart and all the other great composers from the 1700's and 1800's.

Go to Japan, their rock music scene is booming as far as I can tell. Soooo many of my favourite bands are from Japan. ONE OK ROCK, the GazettE, Girugamesh, NICO Touches the Walls, WEAVER, X Japan, it's pretty awseome. Korea has some awesome rock bands too, they're just hard to find because Korea's music scene is saturated with pop at the moment

But seriously, if it's good rock music you're looking for, Japan is the place to be.

To be fair, when rock was popular, pop music wasn't as popular as it, and rap was just starting out.

umm? dead? have you looked into the media lol 09- to present, rock style has never been so accepted as a trend as it is now. As for Rock music, it never dies.

Kiss gets me hot! So do Motley Crue. I listen to modern pop/dance whatever music but rock is where the heart is. I wasn't even born when these bands were rocking with big hair, leggings and colourful headbands but I adore them! There is hope! It just has to catch on.

Rock only died because Pop Rock was filled and is still filled with untalented pieces of crap.

Nobody has any interest in these loser bands.

no genre of music is ever dead, its just that mainstream music is what the majority listen to, hence the name 'mainstream' music.

The thing with rock (or metal or punk for that matter) is that the whole thing was about the rebellious attitude. To rebel against the society and the popular culture. It wasn't about to become big, famous and popular. It was supposed to give a middle finger to the pop artists.
Today the world has a big market for rock, metal and punk but the whole rebellious attitude has transformed from an lifestyle to an image. The music itself has been accepted and evolved so that you can make money out of it.

So rock isn't dead, it just evolved into a commercial product. And why make such fuzz about it? The labels are selling an illusion that you're cool and rebellious if you buy records and clothes to match. It's just like making money off religion or medicine which is nothing but water.

Japanese rock/metal? No offence to all the j-rockers out there but that genre is nothing but Asian versions of Kiss. Put them in ordinary clothes and they'd be as interesting as Creedence Clearwater Revival.

If you want music that really challenge the pop-culture, check out progressive or avant-garde music.



Right, I'm off to the forum games again where I belong...
