    Default Rock Music is Finally Dead

    Gene Simmons:

    “Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered," says Gene Simmons of the rock group Kiss.
    "Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth." Mike Tyson
    “Culture?” says Paul McCartney. “This isn't culture. It's just a good laugh.”

    That's a matter of opinion and not the topic of this thread.

    I hadn't really thought of this in terms of "rock is dead"; however, the last few years have seen such a dearth of good rock music that it seems like radio stations are being forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel. The best rock song these days wouldn't even approach the same level as the worst Kiss song.

    If you're turning to the radio to hear good rock music you're doing it wrong.

    Also, lol @ your last sentence. Speaking of opinions.

    Yeah, a lot of silly people complain how there's nothing good or original on the radio anymore. They seem to think that means there's nothing good or original being made now period. While I agree that rock isn't flourishing like it was maybe back in 1965, there's still tons of great bands, you just have to look a little harder.

    I only JUST discovered St. Vincent for example. That girl (the frontwoman) shreds on the guitar and is just an otherworldy talent. I really enjoyed Jack White's new album Lazaretto, too.

    Also, Gene Simmons doesn't know anything about music, he's more of a business man.

    Then please give me an example. And not of "great bands," I want to hear some new, great rock music.

    I don't know, but it's obvious that there is no good new rock music, much less great new rock music.
