Will Rock Stand The Test of Time?

Growing up in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, I remember all the great Rock Bands—Aerosmith, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix just to name a few.

The 1980’s may have been the best decade for rock with bands like Van Halen, Def Leopard, Whitesnake, Great White, Poison, Kiss, and Bon Jovi.

I went into the Air Force in 1979 and converted to Country for almost twenty years. I missed all of the 1980s rock!  I came back to my roots in 2000 and over the past decade, I’ve been to see all of them and more.

Lately I’ve heard a return to the sounds of the 1970’s and 1980’s. Bands like Three Doors Down, Fuel, Seether, Dokken, Daughtry, Five Finger Death Punch, and Nickelback have all released singles that have that great 70’s and 80’s sound. 

Seether covered Careless Whisper in 2009. They took the George Michael pop song and rocked it out. Five Finger Death Punch’s cover of Bad Company is better than the original in my opinion!

I think there’s a good chance that rock will stand the test of time.
