A lot of these rappers that try to act and appear tough and hard are actually Homosexuals. Undercover brothers that are acting out to hide their Homosexuality.

They weren’t right. But rock seems to be dying a slow death and is hardly popular. I don’t see 1 rock song on billboard top songs chart (granted I don’t know all the artists). Country and rap are the only things selling.


Shreveport has a large black population and a lot of white CW fans. But they still have 2 radio stations that only play rock. A medium size market town supporting 2 stations playing 60 y.o. music is unusual.

BTW, I hear Frank Sinatra era stuff at Starbucks. I told the barista "Ya know, the people who bought his records are all dead. They're not in here buying coffee."
She laughed and said: 'Oh, we think it sucks, too. But we can't control what music is played.'

Agreed, it's negative and effecting the young. Soul and funk from the 70's was more positive and uplifting.

Which is sad, in the 80s Shreveport was a hotspot for Rock.

We had a platter show in New Iberia on Sunday featuring black gospel music. Almost all of the records were being produced in Shreveport. As a South La. guy I assumed it would be New Orleans. When I moved to Shreveport they had a station that played exclusively gospel music every day. By the late 70s that was gone.

Rock and Roll is the devil’s music. The only music that’s legal should be gospel music.


I certainly do not advocate the outlawing any music. Yet I think it may be instructive to point out that much of contemporary music does not represent a continuous spiritual bridge between it’s antecedent art forms but instead represents a distinct spiritual break.

Rock ‘n roll certainly is the music of the Devil. Yet in doing so, it at least ontologically embraces the concept that good and evil exist.

When the narrator of Robert Johnson’s “Cross Road Blues” bargained with the Devil, he knew such a deal came at a terrible price — his eternal soul. This archetype not only sired the Blues, but likewise sired the progeny of the Blues, Rockabilly and R&B.

So when the narrator of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” confesses he “shot a man in Reno just to watch him die”, he laments not only the loss of his freedom but also the shame and guilt he has over the mortal sin of murder. The familiar Gospel trope of a train rolling down the tracks is a reminder that we all will at some time reach the end of the line while confronting our final — and eternal — spiritual destination.

Similarly, when the narrator of Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe” confronts the villain-protagonist of the song about the purpose of the gun in his hand, the song is infused with the knowledge that though Joe may outrun the hangman’s noose, he will not ultimately outrun eternal judgment. The song thus becomes a dirge, a warning of impending damnation.

These two songs offer an example that what came to be called rock ‘n roll was firmly rooted in the Gospel music tradition of both spiritual damnation and spiritual redemption. Yet much of contemporary music is not simply a reinterpretation of it’s antecedent art-forms but a rejection of the spiritual themes that infused such art forms.

Too much of contemporary rap and rock embodies nihilism for nihilism sake. The gap between Robert Johnson’s “Cross Road Blues” and much of contemporary rap is thus an unbridgeable chasm.

Do you understand the concept of metaphors? I’m not literally saying that Elvis was Beelzebub in disguise.

Putting that aside, we are discussing art here, not science. Certainly I grant that art is subjective and open to multiple interpretations.

I'm not talking about new bands. I'm talking about the popularity of old bands. Lots of stations in every city specialize in classic rock. Hell, some of the Rolling Stones are in their 80s and they sell out concerts.
That did not happen with the stars of prior generations (crooners) or subsequent generations (disco).
