Rock Gods

Why does everyone have to hate on poor ol' Sufjan?

Well the girls would turn the color of the avocado
when he would drive down their street in his El Dorado...
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole.
Not like you.

The rock gods are not angry with modern rock. You can't just come up with another AC/DC... you'd be breaking no new ground with your simple, classic-sounding riffs. If you love hard-rocking music, there's still a ton of great stuff out there you haven't heard yet. (I just downloaded Motorhead for the first time this year.)

The direction the industry is moving in is where the money's at. Pop is huge because it sells- it's a good investment, the p2p factor isn't as big as it is for edgier acts like (in my case) Doves or Guster who, without the mp3 format, would've had a harder road to the top. White-bread MTV rock is killing old-school rock, but I'm not crying. The direction the music is moving is generally good. Rock is doing the evolution into Sufjan Stevens, Franz Ferdinand, and Maroon 5 with a side of Mastodon. Also, Dave Matthews has jumped the shark, The Rolling Stones unofficially sounded like ass at the Super Bowl, and Art Alexakis, Chris Cornell, and Eddie Vedder are all in their mid-40's cooking up singles that scare off their original fans. Survival of the fittest. Some day may come when we rockers remember pressing our faces up against the speakers and blowing our brains out. I don't discount the possibility of that coming back in an original way. I just hope there never comes the day when rock straight up stinks.
