And since this thread is my baby, I’d say that blues will also never die.
Here’s why. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qAM7qZQyIg

‘tallica died after the Black Album. Hihihi No offense. I’m one of the metal militia since Burton days.

I was dissappointed with them after the Black Album. Though I still listen to my old records. I also love their covers of other bands.

But nobody can deny that ‘tallica is the best Heavy Metal band so far.

Nowadays, I’m into 60s and 70s artists. Jeff Beck is the man!!!

Rock will die..slowly..just like classical music. It seems like music keeps getting dumber. Classical music was a real challenge for the mind..and today pop music takes 5 minutes

What’s up Alex? That wasn’t even realistic. You are pessimistic. What’s the matter?

Of course it was realistic, and I’m far from pessimistic. It’s just what I see. Back when classical music was popular, you really had to use your brain. Bach might create a masterpiece, and take specific notes out, and give it to his king, and the king would have to piece in the missing pieces. Where is there anything like that these days?

I see. There are no kings nowadays. What you said is called irrelevance. Maybe you need to SEE more. :)

I dont think any genre will die. It will just keep coming back. For instance… some 20 years ago, I thought I would never listen to Classical Music and that it will soon dissipitate, until I a fellow musician introduced me to Tori Amos pieces (not classical but ambient in nature) from then on, I was looking for something pure… pointed me to the evil sounding of Rachmaninoff (to name one).

Now I’m more open to “real” artist. By it, I mean musician with pure talents no matter what genre (except neo/emo punk, pop groups and mainstream dildos).

I grew up with Heavy Metal, progressed to Thrash Metal then Death Metal and to Black Metal music (my last band was playing Black Metal music).

Anyway… as I come of age… It seems that I was loving the old crafty Rock n Roll music (Deep Purple, Led Zep, AC/DC, Grateful Dead etc.)

I know its weird to suddenly evolve my taste in music backwards… but I believe, I’m not the only one.

So in my opinion… Rock n Roll will never die.

Rock n Roll may never die, but it’s golden age is over, and with the coming of technology music has changed completely. Whether for better or worse is for you to decide. But technology has always played a massive role in music.

As Alex said classical music was extremely complex and a lot of work was put into creating a composition. There was no method of recording, so the only way for the public to hear of this was at a performance by the artist.

Compare this to now days, where anybody can buy an Ipad and with little musical knowledge create an entire album and the world could instantly listen to it and spend money purchasing it.

Music has come a long way.

Rock and roll will never die as long as people listen to it! Maybe it’s not as good now (I have no idea) but the older you get, nothing is as good as it used to be…

Rock n Roll will never die.

As somebody mentioned that technology will play major roles in the survival of a genre… so it is to Rock n Roll.

I remembered a history of The Beatles where a recording company said no to them for the reason that guitar music was dying and new instruments were evolving and being updated. Guess what? They were wrong.

Even at this moment, new technology is being used to create new music. That new technology cannot and will never kill Rock n Roll.

You see, some people dont shake their bottoms… they bang their heads. And those people (me included) doesn’t have the taste for such trance music.

Classical music did not die. In fact there are many groups out there still performing live. The San Francisco Symphonies with Michael Kamen even played with Metallica live (imagine classical music jamming with Heavy Metal… its like maidens serenading only those maidens are holding a huge hammer).

(and I agree with Pat)

But rock and roll kinda is dying…

I can’t remember the last time I heard a serious face-kicking single, like QOTSA’s No One Knows, in years! Everything slowed down, mellowed out, and got more boring. All the testicles are over in the electronic camp these days.

Seriously someone recommend me a vaguely new band with some fuckin balls. Pulled Apart By Horses is pretty much the only one I’ve found.

@ Nicholas – Check out MIDDLE CLASS RUT and their album “No Name, No Color”. The entire album is face-kicking but “Alive or Dead” is especially face melting.

If that don’t quite strike your fancy, let me know and I WILL find you something new that you think is particularly face-kicking.

Awesome rock is still out there, just not mainstream. Only means we have to dig a little more. =)

Rock and roll is dead. Nobody rocks around the clock these days, nobody spins the bass, very few even know who Chuck Berry is, they don’t even know what “jiving at the hop” means.

Rock and roll is dead.

All depends how you define Rock and Roll I guess…

If you define it in the narrow 50’s style where it originated, then yes it is dead, but like everything else, it has evolved past that narrow definition to encompass a wide range of music that exists today.
