Every decade has a definitive sound when it comes to rock music. The 80s were the perfect time for leather-clad egomaniacs to express themselves through fast-paced rock and the occasional power ballad. The 90s belonged to brooding, flannel-wearing "dudes," expressing their angst through distorted guitar-driven lamentations. Even the 2000s had a special sound, even if it was commercial alt-rock. With so many of today’s bands striving for a different sound, how will people look back ten years from now and describe rock music from 2010- present day?
What is your definition of "rock?" The genre is so large nowadays, that it is difficult to conceptualize the style you are referring to if just "rock" is used. – WilliamWay6 years ago
This is a very interesting article as I do agree that the view of music and music genre has changed greatly over the years. Maybe even throwing in some quotes about rock from the aspect of musicians. If I remember correctly it was one of the band members of KISS that even considered for rock to be "dead." – Kevin Mohammed6 years ago
