Motorhead Frontman Fears The Death Of Rock 'N' Roll

Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister is the latest rock legend to share his views about the current state of rock and reportedly said that half of modern bands do not deserve to be together.

"I think it's pretty poor right now," Lemmy responded when asked in the current issue of Kerrang! (via Blabbermouth) about the current state of rock. "We're waiting for something, and I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's for the death of rock 'n' roll, y'know?

"I really don't know. I don't understand what we're waiting for at the moment, because we've been waiting for a long time. We deserve something, but we ain't getting it."

He then, according to the site, shared his view about today's bands, "I don't know why half of [modern bands] are together; 'cause they don't deserve to be. All they do is make a f***ing racket.

"I think we're still looking for an answer to punk, to be quite honest with you, 'cause Nirvana wasn't it, y'know? They were the closest, but that didn't last. I like some bands. I like Foo Fighters and Evanescence and stuff. But I don't know if we're going to get a real thing like punk again."
