Rock Is Dead?

05/04/2012

(Gibson) According to Jack Black, rock is dead… or at least on extreme life support. The actor/rocker was inspired by a dearth of quality rock bands to write "Rock is Dead" on Tenacious D's new album, Rise of the Fenix, according to Rolling Stone.

"When you think about rock at its origin, and you think of The Beatles and millions of kids screaming as loud as they can and running as fast as they can towards The Beatles, there's no one who is that kind of lightning rod, who commands that kind of power and has that kind of creative magma," he said. "I contend that the last band to really have that kind of power, I'm gonna say, was Nirvana. Who since Nirvana has been as big as Nirvana, in that way?"

That's not to say that Black isn't still a huge rock fan and that he doesn't have some modern favorites. "My counterpart Jack White, whatever he does is always worth checking out – and his archnemesis, the Black Keys, are also tremendous," Black said. "The Foo Fighters. I loves me some Foos. But it does get thin after that." more on this story
