It sure isn't on TV. This thread is inspired by a performance that was on the Carson Daley (gawd) Show. I didn't expect much from this guy, but he had a band on there tonight called, "The Star Spanglers" They were modern rockish. It was one of the worst musical performances I've seen in a while. And they were totally into it. It wasn't like "Oh man, we are screwing up, this sucks." They were proud of how good they sounded. It was a blur of stupid lyrics, totally filler verses, stupid "Whoa oh ohhh oh" "catchy" chorus. Terrible singer. Guitarist tone was horrible. No one struck me as talent. But this is the new wave of rock? Are we all going to hell in a handbasket. I heard a band that has come out of England called, "The Darkness." For all I know, they might be popular, I don't know. They sounded great. Very AC/DC with a crazy assed vocalist. Freddy Mercury on crack. I dug 'em. Good stuff. So we are not completely doomed. I saw "The Black Keys" on Conan, they seemed good for one of those "We hate bassists" bands. So, I don't know, is this the new popular style of music. I haven't listened to the radio in a long time. I know music from live TV performances on late night TV. Is the new wave of rock as horrible as I percieve with few exceptions?
