How can rock and roll make a come back if rock and roll fans keep pulling down bands who made some mainstream and semi-mainstream success? how can a a band save rock and roll from electro dance pop bull shit if the only people who know about that band is literally 20 people?
I sometimes feel that the ones who is destroying rock and roll is not "The Man" but the rock fans itself, and label knows it, that's why they don't invest in producing and helping many rock bands because they know that rock fans will not going to buy their albums, and even if they did loved the band, majority of them will illegally download their music, or will not go to their concert unless it's a free concert or it's a free music festivals, And they do it not because they hate the band but because they hate "The Man" and they want to hurt "The Man" for not buying anything from the band that is under the hands of the man, not realizing that it's the band that is getting hurt the most, as "The Man" are going to find new artist and new genre to make the business growing. They keep this argument " a real musician should be more than willing to starve and be poor for arts sake " or " real rockstars should not earn money"
Yet these type of rock fans are the most ungrateful SOB out there, they think the band owes them, they think they own the band! they are even more possessive with fans who bought their albums, or at least go to their tours and spread their music etc.
Sorry about the rant it's just something really stupid and self contradicting.
