Rock 'n' roll is suffering from a terminal illness called "revivalism". And it's not only associated with the music as such, but rather with scene sorrounding it.
Rock needs to be associated with some sort of counter-culture and the last time that premise held true was actually in the early nineties. The rise of the Seattle alternative rock scene (or actually the Washington alternative rock scene), which had the label "grunge" slapped on as soon as it hit the mainstream, was the last time a subgenre of rock was really associated with some kind of counter-cultural movement. Slackerism. Generation X. The whole "voice of a generation"-thing, you know.

Afterwards though... well, what came afterwards?
The dreaded "post grunge" genre? – Not a movement!
"Nu metal"? – Not a movement either!
All those "The ...s"-Bands of the early 00s? – Garage rock revival.
Emo/Screamo/Whatnot-o? – Oh please!

tl;dr: Rock 'n' roll died in the nineties.

I think you're partly right, but I think even grunge could be dismissed as revivalism(it was derivative from 80s hardcore punk, late 70s metal and the music a lot grunge bands grew up with). The issue isn't so much the authenticity of the scene, because that's subjective(you can see something as authentic but someone else might not), as much as it's existence. Rock music(and music in general) has always been about young people trying to become famous/popular/cool, it's the outlet through which young creatives find a purpose, and the popular genre of the time gives them a focus, a goal they can strive for: form a band, play music that fits into that genre and try to make it.

It's interesting that the last rock movement you listed is emo/screamo, because can you name a single rock genre that became relevant after that? To me, that's when rock truly died, and I would attribute it mainly to social media and technology. Every genre that has defined music since, be it dubstep, trap, vaporwave, synthwave, mumble rap or whatever, has been some form of electronic or sample based music, and has been disseminated through social media, because to a young creative today, that's the obvious pathway to achieving "success". Why go through the struggle of putting together a band with other complicated and fickle personalities then try to hold it together through the hardships of touring when you can achieve the same results within the comfort of your bedroom using only a DAW and a twitter/instagram/soundcloud account?

>grunge is the worst thing to happen to rock.

Be that as it may, it WAS rock. And that's not an opinion.
There's a reason why I avoided using the term 'grunge', namely that what happened to the Seattle scene was highly symptomatic of the cycle that had ruined rock beforehand, over and over, and that, afterwards, brought more specific genres ('Grunge' is not a genre, mind you!) to a standstill before they had the chance to move – but those were genres without a movement, oftentimes (not generally, to be fair) genres without message. What happened when the Seattle scene became 'Grunge' is very similar to what happened when crossover or rap rock became 'Nu-metal' and so on. And maybe 'grunge' was indeed part of the problem, since the point of the message at time was that there were no more messages. So, you might indeed have a valid point and yet I don't see how that invalidates my point.

Hence my principal point still stands: What is NEW in rock? Where's the NEW rock? Where's the "scene"? Where are the true eclecticists and innovators these days? They're hardly to be found in rock – sad but true.

Good point! Starting with Norwegian black metal in the early to mid nineties, then moving on to the Göteborg scene and finally culminating in the rise of gleefully cheesy Finnish symphonic power metal in the early to mid 00s Scandinavia basically conquered the metal scene piece by piece.

Oh dear, Coheed an Cambria... there I was, back in 2005, hearing "Welcome Home" for the first time, thinking to myself: "Well by golly, gee wiz! This is actually a rather swell song!" (even though it was -- in its essence -- a "teenage love song"... but it was GOOD as such! A "haven't we all been there?"-song, because I feel that there are millions and millions of fellows who have experienced that sort of messy relationship, who had that ONE ex or hopeless love unto whom they've occasionally wished hell... but only occasionally!). So what's a fine law-abiding citizen to do in 2005 but to buy the album... and be massively disappointed. Fuckin 'ell. What was that band even trying to achieve? Half of it sounded like a second-rate Mars Volta, the other half sounded like... crap... just crap.

punk was a response to the over produced music the industry was pumping out
most bands were indistinguishable from one another in the 70s but there were so many of them at the same time
it got the point where they were trying to outperform each other with 14 - 20 minute songs
rock became a snobby shell of its counter culture pass with no punch at all
punk was necessary and rock'n'roll only benefited from it

I believe that what rock have lost is basically, melody...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUee69Oo2sk

From this shoegazer, probably and most likely the best shoegazer band, Ride, if you compare with other shoegazer bands, like My bloddy valentine, you will find that while both bands are considered shoegaze, Ride is clearly superior in melodics.

All the bands posted above are lacking on melodics, and their singers are "trying too hard" which takes out the "spirit" of rock, that is something well done but at the same time popular and lets say "sincere".

BTW, grunge sucks...

Liked what I heard in the webms OP. Band is Highly Suspect, I wanna talk about this shit

Just listened through both Mister Asylum and The Boy Who Died Wolf.
Was a little put off by dude's style cause it feels a little overproduced but I'm definitely a fan of the band now. You can hear the classic rock/blues influence so in a way both albums were on the safe side but it didn't feel like they were stealing rifts or copying anyone...there's a definite indie sound they throw in but it's primarily rock music, combo worked good. Lyrics are well written IMO too he sings a lot about struggles and it feels sincere. When they fuck with the softer stuff it comes out pretty good too, "Chicago" and "Wolf" were the best in that regard.

"Lydia", "Bath Salts", "My Name Is Human", and "Lost" were my favorite songs. I'd say give them a chance fags not astroturfing

Alright, alright, I should've said "Northern Europe" or "Nordic Countries". Of course Finland is its own thing, both culturally and linguistically (even though culturally, there's traditionally a strong Swedish influence in southern Finland).
But when it comes to metal those countries DEFINITELY influenced each other. Don't forget that even Finland's top-selling metal act had a Swedish singer for a couple of years. And even the most "classic" Finnish powermetal band, Stratovarius, has always had a mixed Swedish/Finnish lineup.

Well, what is rock music to you? Because last time I checked, rock, in contrast to blues, is music that makes you, well, rock. To powerfully move or sway to and fro or from side to side. And, which ideally comes with an air of irreverence, abandon and a no-shits-given attitude.

That overproduced, mellow (though those who said limp dick shit were more on point) garbage is pretty much the polar opposite. If even Manson has the integrity to call his hot garbage "pop" instead of "rock", what does that make this shitty band you're posting? Which by the way is way, way faggier than Manson, which is saying something.

>>
>>1897169
>They better sing about counterculture or they aren't rock music amirite guys?
Of course not. Elvis didn't. Jerry Lee didn't. Chuck Berry didn't.

The music they played, however, makes you, rock. Makes you powerfully move or sway to and fro or from side to side. And, it came with an air of irreverence, abandon and a no-shits-given attitude.

Now, yeah, that's the roots of the genre. But everything else that defines itself as such ascribes to that except maybe some '70s/'80s bands that gave a little too many shits, and that thus are considered by many as not really rock (which KISS, overall, isn't, even if they visit the turf from time to time). On the other hand we have the garbage you're posting, which doesn't ascribe to said roots. So just call it pop and move on.

>there's a reason you're behind a monitor arguing with me on 4chan rather than doing something with that knowledge
I've played in many bands through the years. Only guitar on stage, but I also play the piano, bass and some more eclectic instruments. And one of my hobbies is transcribing chord progressions. I've also thought. And a person in my extended family owns a music academy, and we share theory.

It's just that, on top of that, I've been shitposting around here since '04, and I'm here forever. But do keep on projecting.

Also, yet again, it's not a question of history, even if, of course, it is an important factor that affects it tangentially. It is a question of genre. Style. Melody. What you'd call a symphony has some basic requirements to be a symphony, and what you'd call rock has some basic requirements to be rock. Requirements I've listed. And the shitty band posted in OP doesn't fulfill these basic requirements. And yes, if it doesn't make you "sway to and fro", which is the dictionary definition of "to rock" and the reason why the genre was baptized as such, then clearly it isn't rock.

Keep on feeling proud about your own lack of knowledge while talking down to those trying to share some knowledge though.

>there's a reason you're behind a monitor arguing with me on 4chan rather than doing something with that knowledge
explaining that, yeah, I've done something with that knowledge. But please, keep that haughtiness up. Maybe that way you'll stop being a cuck eventually, if you stop directing it towards people on the internet and start directing it towards every single cunt on the planet. THAT is rock.

Look into stoner rock, desert rock, and prog rock. There's a lot of new, amazing talent under those genres in the past 10 years. That's where "rock" is seeing its new life. Bands like Kyuss (not together but look at what they've created and influenced) and Elder for the more prog side of things. High on Fire for stoner.

Nobody is universally better than anybody else. Some are better than others at particular things. And in the particular thing of correctly describing rock music, yeah, I'm better than you. But I'm sure you suck cock like I never could. After all, it all comes from experience.

I'm not better than you. But that shit is not rock. For the reasons already detailed. Challenge you to guess what webms itt are the ones I posted.

I'd much rather this approach than that weird passive aggressive superiority complex thing you've had goin on

Learn to recognize when you're arguing with a sociopath, dude. How much fucking logic have you slung at me? Is someone who doesn't refute it worth arguing with? The reason I've found this amusing is because I actually think you're quite intelligent.

I could list good modern rock bands all day. "Rock is dead" people are legit fucking crazy, or just nostalgic for their favorite old bands and sounds and don't want to accept anything new. There are tons of great modern rock bands, both popular and underground. There is even a big rock revival in a lot of foreign countries like Japan right now that emulate the western style of rock.

Of course nothing is going to sound exactly like the rock of previous eras. Music evolves. Just like how the rock of the 90s is very different from the rock of the 60s, but nobody was bitching about this stupid shit then either. The only thing that is different now is that other genres have gained a lot more popularity and rock is no longer the "king" of music genres like it used to be.

Also the good ol "i don't like it therefore it isn't [insert genre we're arguing about]" argument is definitely in effect here.
>>
>>1885544
I dont completely agree with the favorite songs, but the rest is correct.
>>
>>1873753
found the nigger whos never recorded a song in his life

Other dude is right, sample based music is much easier and a much more obvious choice for kids wanting to make music because if you record a guitar with free software it sounds shit. If you sample a melody or bassline or drumbeat or whatever that has already been processed it sounds good with very little effort. Combine that with torrented synths and plugins and a dude in his room can be more successful than some garage band could ever be and with much less effort.

If what you said was true, then rock music wouldnt be in the state its in right now.

>Ice ice baby
Queen and Bowie did not receive songwriting credit or royalties until after it had become a hit. If it was released today, it'd be shut down before it even hit iTunes.
>>
>>1905968
Youve basically proved my point and everyone elses. They didnt get royalties till it was a hit, and yet you still get the Black Eyed Peas sampling the beach boys and mc hammer sampling the bassline of his most famous song and nothing happens until theyre hits, so so much of it goes unnoticed.

Do you listen to any electronic music? Big artists like Daft Punk have made a career of sampling, and they are by no means the only ones to do it. Another contributing factor to rock becoming all but irrelevant is dance music being all electronic for the past 20-30 years, which is all again sample based. You have a whole genre based on one electronic drum beat at the same tempo, and anyone in their bedroom with a pair of headphones can find the drumbeat, have a few decent synths on top, call it drum n bass and get it played at a rave

My point was that times have changed, copyright laws are tighter than ever now. All your examples are from like the early 90s. Today, you can't get away with shit. People doing covers on Youtube get their videos taken down. There was this one guy simply talking about a movie in his car and his video got taken down. If you're as big as the Black Eyed Peas and can afford to pay for the copyright clearance, you can. If you're an asshole in his bedroom with a twitter page, forget about it.

Also, I should say, if you like rock music so much then you should be happy Daft Punk are sampling Breakwater, that's a bitching riff.

If you like rock but don't like grunge it's a good balance between melody and power. And it doesn't require men in make up crying or screaming. bonus.

If nu-metal wasn't a movement, then neither was grunge or anything before that.

I know this whole post is probably shitty bait and/or past, but were you actually asleep between 1999 and 2006?
>>
>>1870559
Seriously. I remember when rock didn't have so much electronica in it. What's up with these rhythmic vocals, to, literally not a thing that has ever happened in this genre, the fucking sellout. And get a load of his hair, clothes, and style? What kind of flamboyant character is this clown? Why can't people just stick to real rock? God, I miss the 50's.

In case you couldn't tell--which I know you can't--all of that was sarcasm. You're an idiot. People like you have been saying "THIS IS WHY ROCK IS DEAD" for 40+ years every time something new comes out, and yet there are even more rock and metal festivals each new year than the previous.

Rock is not dead. It is "dead" as you knew it when you were young. It is a genre that has been in constant evolution since its creation.
