    So your grunge is my disco. The difference is I don’t condemn disco I just chose to not listen to it.

    I always hear people saying that rock isn't dead and then they proceed to name off a bunch of YouTube bands I've never heard of that are supposed to be great bands. The only one I've ever liked just a little bit is Greta Van Fleet and it's only because the lead singer is able to mimic Robert Plant's voice. If it weren't for that kid, I doubt many people would even pay attention to that band as the talent stops there. Yes, they sound like Zeppelin...but still not at the same level of musicianship.

    There are decent rock bands out there. There might even be a few good rock bands out there although I have yet to hear them. However, there are no great bands out there who are in the same echelon of Led Zeppelin, Boston, The Doors, etc. Because if there were, someone on here would've already found them and they'd be the darling of this forum.

    Why is it you haven’t heard of them? It’s because corporate radio’s version of a great band doesn’t fit their idea of a money-making entity (I like to call it the Simon Cowell Syndrome.). Face it in today’s music business guys like Neal Young would never stand a chance. Like I said, good rock is out there, you just have to look for it. Don’t discount anyone’s finds because you haven’t heard of them. As far as becoming darlings of this forum, it really doesn’t matter, if I like it I’m going to listen to it.

    When I was 16 (1992) I paid £16 in a Virgin Megastore for the Point Break soundtrack, just for this song (there were a couple others on there that were ok too, luckily). Imagine trying to explain that to a 16 year old today! Ratt and Point Break . One of the last songs of a great generation .

    That’s some damn good stuff right there.

    Course this stuff doesn’t count.

    If this doesn’t get you going you got no rock and roll soul.

    I love The Pretty Reckless song! She’s got such a beautiful voice.
