I know this is kinda off topic here,but does any one else think all these new rock bands suck.They all seem to follow the same basic formula.Some rap mixed with loud guitars a whiny irratating singer and no originality.The bands im talking about particullary are Linkin Park,Hupa Stank(who the f**k names there band Hupa Stank), Syliva,That f**king band who plays Head Strong(I can't remeber there name),and any other band who tries to be way to much like Korn or Limp Bizkit.
And what ever happened to Metallica,there past few album have sucked and there new one is horrible.
It seems like rock has been going to hell since about 1996.What the f**k happened to music that actually moved you, instead of irratate you endlessly.

You gotta look beyond the music vids they play on tv. There are plenty of good rock bands out there its just nobody knows about them.

if you're fed with all the new s**t they on tv you should try stuff like cathedral, orange goblin, black label society and i think slayer are still going.

the best kind of rock to listen to these days is stoner its just real rock and metal.

if that doesnt work just listen to s**t from 1996. i still listen to alice in chains, black sabbath and s**t from well over ten years ago.

rock music was ok until it became commercial now the reord labels start the bands and write and produce the tracks like pop tunes.

I actually don't mind rap-rock.

Who really cares?  If it's on the radio, then switch stations.



Wyckednick-You mentioned that it makes you mad that bands are trying too hard to be like Korn or Bizkit.  Dude, compare new album from Korn (Follow The Leader-Newest Album) to their old stuff (self titled-Life Is Peachy).  You will be able to tell just how sold out Korn is now.  It's really sad.  What was once an awesome edgy hardcore band is now.....teen pop rock.

The same goes for Bizkit.  Dude, Durst is huge!  I know not one teen who wouldn't know who he is.  I really think that Bizkit has sucked since 3 Dolla Bill Ya'll.  Everything since has been pointless teen pop drivel.  f**k Fred!  Wes was the only thing that band had going for them.  

And when that new cd comes out this summer, I'm going to walk right past it and see what The Bosstones have put out recently.

AND THAT'S MY TWO CENTS!

Rock music doesn't suck any more today than it did when you were younger.  Everyone thinks this way, otherwise how do you account for the popularity of VH1 and VH1Classic.  I'm 35 and think that the 80's music was great stuff, second British invasion and all.

I will concede that some of today's stuff is pretty good though.  In particular, I think that John Mayer, Michelle Branch and Counting Crows are extremely talented.  I can even give "props" to acts like Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne and the pop princesses because they are what they are and don't pretend to be anything else.  They all know they aren't writing Abbey Road, they are just making money.

man you need to check into what's up in the underground. there a bunch of great bands that stem from punk/emo/ and hardcore that are really pushing the limits of rock, way more than any s**t ass band on mtv ever will.

 here's some i'd recommend: Thursday, the Beautiful Mistake, Coheed and Cambria, the Get-Up Kids, Cursive, Modest Mouse.

Good luck!

Most  of Rock Music has now became Alternative Rock Music... And today, Alternative Music is Pop Music... And Pop Music is now Rap (or with hip hop) music...

Its not bad... but that is how it is...

Just remember back in the 70's everthing was Disco... even the Rolling Stones did Disco!

And if anybody has ever listen to Pink Floyd's Final Cut (from early 80's) the song Not Now John has some rap in it (Also, this song is almost never played on the radio because it has the word "f**k" is in it, too)

Just about ALL music sucks nowadays.

Whenever I want to completely drown myself in music, I break out my WOODSTOCK DVD. The director's cut is fabulous.

Otherwise, I just play a few cds from .38 SPECIAL, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, MOLLY HATCHET, ZZ TOP, BLACK SABBATH, BLUE OYSTER CULT, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, AEROSMITH (from at least 20 years ago), LED ZEPPLIN, THE WHO, STEELY DAN, JETHRO TULL, ALICE COOPER, and some other bands from that era, and I'm happy.

You can heap all of the current glitzy, techno, funko, studio, MTV crappola into one big pile and burn it.

I agree that there is a lot of great underground bands.I listen to them a lot,but it sucks that I can't turn on the radio and hear some good music.Sure they play Alice in Chains,Nirvana,Stabbing Westward,Tool,and Sound garden,but they always play the exact same songs over and over again.
The bands I have goten into lately have been Static-x,Godsmack, American Head charge,Godhead,V-mob,NSA,and System of a down.

It doesn't matter what year it is, you're always gonna have your fair share of Creeds and Salivas on mainstream radio.  But like everyone else has said, try staying away from the mainstream if you want to find music to like.  A lot of mainstream music is generic and boring.  On the flip side, just because it's popular doesn't mean it automatically sucks, either.  Personally I'm a big fan of bands like Pearl Jam, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, and Radiohead, to name a few.  I wouldn't say that they suck, but some people would.  And they are pretty mainstream, for the most part.

On the other hand, the sudden success of bands like Queens of the Stone age is a welcome surprise.  Either way, mainstream music is always gonna have its fair share of crap.

When I need the sweet tunes of music to soothe my soul, I turn to my "Very Best of Hall and Oates" CD to keep me going strong.wyckednick wrote:

I sorta gave up on popular rock music in the early 90s when someone decided that plugging a Tele or Strat into a Marshall stack turned to eleven and then strumming it like an accoustic guitar was a good idea.

You need to check out Dream Theater - 6 Degrees of Inner Turbulance or Scenes from a Memory
Racer X - Getting Heavier(Paul Gilbert is a shreading God. Forget what he did with Mr. Big. Check this out and see why he's a legend.)
And Porcuepine Tree - In Absentia is a great album

The good stuff is out there. You just have to be willing to look.

I have "Scenes..." as well as "Images and Words" and "Falling Into Infinity".  I've heard "Awake" as well as a live CD from quite awhile ago.  I've been meaining to get "6 Degrees..."

Like you say, the good stuff is out there, just not on the radio
