When did Rock N' Roll lose it's balls? Why are so many modern rock artists so interested in NOT having fun--in singing only about their demons or how much their lives suck or how inside they're a monster? Whatever happened to just having fun in Rock N' Roll?

I'm talking about shit like Skillet, Rise Against, etc, which seem to be the modern rock bands that kids love nowadays.



It all sounds too similar...It doesn't sound fun at all. Too fucking serious and self important. Too crunchy sounding.

When the public decided that Nirvana's gibberish was decent music. Rock has been a nutless wonder ever since.

i like music about sorrow,depression,death and loneliness those are my favorite subjects in music but thats what metal is for.

rock and hard rock for the most part is supposed to be upbeat and fun i mean you can have a couple serious or down tracks but nothing like rock is now

Grrr... darn those kids and their music

To me music with balls is challenging music, whats so ballsy about classic rock anyway? Whats your really asking for is the old status quo back cuz the new one don't suit ya.

And what does balls means to ya? Something like those 80's shitty glam bands? Pfft... No thanks, we don't need those posers back.
Of course, getting rid of these whining modern bitches wouldn't be a bad thing at all.

Nirvana

Also, "balls" go further than lyrics. The music doesn't have balls either.

I wish there were more bands like The Black Crowes out there today, bands that are bluesy and fun without being very cliche

I haven't a clue what you're talking about.

Now let me get back to watching this fun, happy, uplifting modern rock video ...

As far as I'm concerned, Nirvana did have "balls".
