I keep hearing elderly people in their 30's talk about listening to bands in the 90's. These bands seemed to be a group of people who met and started making music and found success without being on a TV contest or being actors in sitcoms ! And the bands consisted of people who could play instruments,.. had a variety of musical influences,.. and often wrote songs with rebellious attitudes or expressed angst!
I was also shocked to find out that the vocals weren't always the main focus of the music! WTF!?!
Songs would often have whole parts with nothing but music playing! And some tracks on an album would not even have vocals!
They also said that the lyrics were sometimes poetic and used lots of imagery and could sometimes be open to interpretation! And that some bands had vocals that you couldn't always understand!!
They weirdest thing of all is that lots of people (especially teens) liked this "rock music"! (or so they said)
Is any of this true? If so, where is this "rock music" and it's fans now? Did a big asteroid hit the Earth and kill them all like the dinosaurs? It's hard to imagine. Old people say the weirdest things....
