| ||Ok first of all music is about self expression and when people are beaten or have had really horrible things happen to them they write songs to prevent doing worse things and i am a living example of this. Second of all fuel's songs do not all sound the same, fuel is my favorite band and i have heard all their songs many times and just because his voice sounds the same and he doesnt use a damn synthesizer like CHER you old fart that doesnt make it odd that he sells records. And if these bands were so bad then why do soooooooo many people listen to them much like myself. Music is a way of expression and letting out emotion and people have been doing it for many years and have lived just fine, Rock is not anti anything except closed minded people who try to find excuses for people killing themselves or saying people are fat because of a genetic bs YOUR FAT BECAUSE YOU ATE TO MUCH. Rock is not a destructive ideal if anything rock is helpful because it gives people with problems the chance to cool off an just let it all out. And that is the reason that people enjoy singing in bands so much. Not just the fame, the glory, the fans, the money, its that they know they helped someone and just because maybe one band is bad and you dont like them doesnt mean you have to write a stupid article about how rock is poision ROCK IS A CURE. And rock isnt garbage its only garbage to you because you dont like it, you are not an open minded person who likes music or you would not have written an entire article about how bad rock is. Rock is an important part of our history and just because you may not like it is no reason to say its trying to "relive the past". And your praising pop when that music is worse than rock and it talks about pimps and hoes and im my opinion you are just a little pop listener who is just bashing rock because he doesnt like it. And rock bands are not about "saving rock" its about self expression and having fun which is just what we do and all music is self expression and rock is just one way of doing it and you may not like it but its true. And if rock is just banging and screaming try to start a rock band because i garantee playing the drums or the guitar well is not as easy as you may think. Rock is not about drugs or sex or egos its about expression and rock is not a destructive ideal its a creative one that nurtures self expression so next time you turn on your little "POP" groups listen to how they use computers to make music while real bands MAKE THEIR OWN.
