Download Festival News

It has just been announced that the latest bands to be added to the festival line-up will be revealed this Monday (16th).

This follows yesterday’s news that two more bands have been confirmed.

Any thoughts on who it could be?

I’m still hoping for Korn, saw them at Download last year and they were simply amazing. What with their Skrillex collaboration having only been recently released don’t think its a bad guess.

Is rock music really dead?

January 12, 2011 at 11:28 am (Music News, Thoughts) (, , , , , , , , )

An article that appeared in the Guardian has caused a huge wave of responses from musicians and journalists alike after it stated that rock music was on its last legs.

Click here for the article.

Rock Sound have responsed and have posted over on their website the thoughts from members of bands and singers who believe what was written was a load of s**t.

As Gavin from The Blackout said: “Rock isn’t dead, talent is. All the songs in the charts are rehashed oldies with over auto-tuned bollocks over the top.” This I agree with, the article states that according to the charts the only big rock songs that had success in 2010 were Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing and Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine. Journey’s song only made it back in to the charts because of Glee, sad state of affairs that a song has to appear on a prime-time show to get recognised.

Surely out of all the genres of music rock is the one where chart positions aren’t important. Yes the charts are dominated by R ‘n’ B and American rappers and there is a lack of rock but for me its the gigs by my favourite rock artists that really matter. I’m sure members of Led Zeppelin or Deftones aren’t waiting by a radio on Sunday night to hear if their song or album had reached number one or not, of course a number one album isn’t something to say no to but its the fan base that attend their shows that I think they are more concerned about.

If rock music is dead as the article claims then why are festivals such as Sonisphere and Download doing so well?

The article is purely based on record sales and this is where the problem lies, just because rock music isn’t stating it’s claim in the charts doesn’t mean it’s dead!
