The problem with talking about rock as a living, breathing presence is those who want to declare it dead are generally those who are stuck in a belief that every band has to be prescribed a specific genre, that calling them “rock” isn’t enough. Instead they drill down until they’ve dug up a subgenre so deep it’s five times removed from the original rock label and cast off as something else entirely.
Rock is dead, or is it? I expect arguments on this one. Come on over, read, comment, reblog, share, etc.
