    I don't think Rock N Roll went away it just got sucked up by the corporate record companies and radio stations. I do not feed into the radio play list of the forgotten rock bands, I think the music that is worthy is the independent bands that won't try and just sell out to be the next Britney or MTV clone. The independent radio stations such as colleges showcase some very good music and bands that have depth and heart. You can turn on your local rock stations and hear the same songs from either one, MTV I feel is not even what it was created for anymore and all you see is Rap and reality shows. Just my opinion? Peace In Music, CalJam..

    Perhaps rock can evolve further, but finding the new stuff can be trying. Radio station monopolies and shrinking playlists don't help, either.

    I agree with you. I can't believe these bands with no style or talent can be so popular. Bands come out with an album, and instantly, people are crazy over them. No more assless leather pants? Wait, they're all wearing crooked baseball caps and studded belts? Gosh, I better run to the nearest Hot Topic! This will all pass sooner or later, music can't stay this crappy forever, can it?

    You forget that I'm an avid early Genesis and King Crimson fan. I know what you mean. Mellotron strings a la mode.

    I blame it on computers. Dance music took over in the late nineties but I couldn't name you a single memorable dance song from the late nineties. Sad state of affairs. But now rock is coming back!
