Isn't rock dead as a music form? Isn't just a product which is why Rush, Journey, Def Leppard and Styx all play fairgrounds, festivals and $hit now, because there is no demand for younger rock bands?



No, you have just grown old and stopped exploring it. Seriously, you are basing the current music scene on fairgrounds acts. That's where fat old hair bands get girdled up for equally unattractive groupies 30 years past their prime.

There is still phenomenal rock music being made and it is found on the club circuit all over the world, just as it has been for 60 years.

listen to You Am I's "Hourly, Daily" and follow it up with "#4 Record"
At first, I thought you meant songs. Did not like Hourly, Daily the song. Any particular tracks off those?

To me they are whole albums... They are essentially a beat band

Hourly, Daily was their more serious record, #4 was a show off record...

I love the song Hourly, Daily but the rest of the record isn't acoustic


They are an incredible live band, too... When they toured with Oasis in the 90s, they would blow em off the stage... left Liam and Noel in awe..

May not be your cup of tea, though...

I almost never like anything the first time I hear it, and if I do, I usually don't like it long. Took me a long time with Dinosaur Jr. and a lot of Sonic Youth.

I actually bought Hourly, Daily because I liked the cover... listened to it once and shelved it for a year or so... Then I read about them in an article and remembered I had a record of theirs... pulled it out and it didnt leave my CD player for a year

I have no respect for self-absorbed ignorance. Your era was not the pinnacle of rock music. It was just an era.

An underrated band if you're talking about the talent of the musicians is Kansas. If you've ever seen one of their shows, the hardest job there has to be the roadies, trying to get them all the different instruments they play on most of the songs in time.

You are talking about a band that went through a lot of changes, lot of different sounds before the more commercial lineup. So if you want to consider one of the above eras, I would say, yeah, they were underrated, but all bets are off once the witch queen joined the band...

I would say Boston is underrated, in the sense that I didn't realize how good they were until I saw them recently. And that was without the original singer. Boston is way better than other bands they get lumped into with.

I think it's an interesting discussion. Sure, they sold eleventy billion albums, but lots of acts/singers sell a lot of albums. I'm guessing a lot of casual fans just don't grasp the talent in that last lineup. Buckingham is simply a genius when it comes to the craft. I still watch the making of Rumors from time to time. Some amazing people.
