    This is bullshit. Music is as good now as it's ever been.

    But what do you mean by "new"? And how exactly are you defining "rock music"?

    You can't define "new" as "new in 2014" and expect a brand new band to be great right from the start. It takes time to develop your craft, it doesn't happen overnight.

    It's been dead for almost a decade.

    No. I didn't know there was one.

    But I've read it now, and in some ways I agree. In others I don't.

    Most of the great music being written nowadays is not rock, but pop -- artists like Regina Spektor and Taylor Swift. Their music is extremely accessible, and they write very clever, witty lyrics. What more do you need in a pop song?

    Compared with artists like those, "modern rock" is often very unimaginative and just boring.

    I agree with that in some ways. Pop can be clever and interesting, but at times certain music can seriously annoy me because of the way it sounds. I went through my BEP phase a few years ago. Before that, there was NIN, and SOD, even Green Day was good. Serj Tankian put out some interesting stuff in his own name. Now it's all gone to screaming lyrics, some of which I don't mind if it adds contrast to the music. But if it's nothing but screaming then the music is flat, dull, pointless.

    I generally don't like "rock", in the traditional sense anymore. Music is super fragmented and diverse these days, so a lot of the best acts don't just do straightforward rock. That being said, here are a few recommendations for very recent rock music:



    Also I really like the album Lazaretto by Jack White.

    Colours to Life - rather like 60s retro, a wall-of-sound; one of the guitarists wears his guitar stomach high, close to his chest.
