Where The Hell Is Rock Going ?

by Tim


Recently, Anthony Fantano, aka The Needle Drop posted a video and asked, “Where the hell is rock going”? I recently (sort of) wrote an article on how rock is dying and while I think that the genre is splintered beyond repair, I think that there are still acts that are well worth checking out.

A lot of it comes down to your preferences when it comes to rock.  Rock is such a broad category that encompasses punk, metal, “emo” and loads of other genres.  This is a list of rock (or close enough) groups/acts that we consider the best as of right now.
