"Another thing that has happened to rock is "Punk". What is this? What kind of rock is this? A record with 2/4 and 4/4 beats with riffs as easy as a Bob Mareley song? So, just because they scream the lyrics and are rebellious, they are rock bands? I don't think so. Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, Avril Lavigne, Sum 41. These aren't rock bands. It makes me sick to think they claim to be rock bands." those you mentioned are barely considered punk, let alone rock. i know you dont like them, but at least mention some good and actual punk bands. they have not even put a "cut" on rock music, let alone "killed" it have you heard of MxPx, pennywise, AFI, and a bunch of other great punk bands im forgetting?
