Who’s Rebelling Now? (Rock is Over)
When rock started, those musicians were rebelling against a boring world – now they’ve become the boring world!
The real news is the music revolution – I may be the only person on the planet to oppose what rock/rap/country/pop have become, but I doubt if I’ll be the last.”
Rock for me is over. Time for it to join barbershop quartets and big bands – music from last century. It has become everything it started out rebelling against. If it can’t get back to basic roots – and decades have shown clearly that it cannot – then it’s over for me.
There is nothing exciting there anymore. After 60 years, nothing new in rock/pop/country/rap.
Music needs something to challenge it or upset it, or get it excited again. We’ve had the bland for decades, what we need is something like Elvis or The Beatles. Something out of left field that really shakes things up.
don’t play rock
instead they rebel
'gainst what it’s become
