    I agree. I just don't feel like repeating myself.

    And to kuma dude, don't leave - you're not going to find a better online community than this one. Like my Aussie buddy nhsdpl said, good luck with that. So you disagree with the OP? No worries.

    Variaty is the spice of life.

    If we all liked the Same thing, played the sane songs, used the same gear, it would be a dull place.

    Just because someone likes something you don't, doesn't mean they are stupid,uninformed or brainwashed.

    As ringo says, peace and love, peace and love.

    I knew something like this would come up. That's why I have a no sane songs clause in my contract.:p:D

    I dunno. Some mates of mine from high school are in a band that have made it big over here in the UK called The 1975. Number 1 album, touring almost constantly, loads of radio play etc. They seem to do OK out of it but they're not rolling in it.

    I don't think rock n' roll died after Gn'R, but it evolved along with the decade that followed Gn'R's rise to stardom.

    When the 90's came through they brought a new rock scene - leather jackets were traded in for flannel shirts, acid washed jeans made way for ragged corduroys, men no longer styled and "poofed" Their hair, they just grew it long as didn't wash it often, and rockers who were guzzling crown royal and extolling the virtues of women and fast cars, began hanging out at coffee houses and lamenting on the troubles of life. Grunge and alt rock was here to stay until the next cycle of new rock sounds came in the early '00's and knocked bands like Pearl jam and soundgarden off the airwaves: it was called rap-rock or rap-metal - (and it was all terrible in my opinion! I like my hip hop and I like my metal, but only separately!!!)

    But in recent years there have been a few bands that tried to lead a return to the brash in your face rebellious style of rock n roll that Guns n Roses played. Bands like Buckcherry and The Hives come to mind.

    I dont think you understand.......You're not going to hear most of the good new bands on radio or on your typical sources , and your reply is about something you heard on Jay Leno????

    Plenty of good answers here stating a big NO.

    The fact is, like the 70's before 80's and 60's before that, rock does not sound like that anymore.

    That would be like people asking, "Did Chuck Berry kill the blues?"

    New, what I would call more traditional sounding rock bands would be like Wilco, Black Keys, Kings of Leon, The National, Arcade Fire and a tone more that I will not list :)

    Exactly.

    Yep, I have noticed that. :)

    I agree with you, Viking, I was wrong. Thanks for your contribution to my thread.

    BTW, I was using Jay Leno or all the night shows as an example. Many of the bands that are trying to break into the mainstream are dying to get on those very shows as they give excellent exposure.

    Nah, dude - RB really does have a "no(t) sane" clause in his contract and he honors it faithfully! :mrgreen:

    I made an extensive study on this, I'm in my sixties so I say rock & roll died after the Smiths broke up.

    Dave Grohl is singlehandedly holding rock alive.

    The guitarist, Johnny Marr, is real good.

    The singer however, is an acquired taste.

    The band was really big in the alternative scene in Australia, but they didn't really do much for me.............. like I said, the singer is an acquired taste.


    Cheers.

    That wasn't a guess, you already knew that from my past threads :p

    What are some of these great new rock bands since you know so many?
