Hope for Rock and Roll?

I have all but given up on Rock music today. It's all starting to sound the same. And there is nothing inspiring about any of it. Drop-D has been done to death. 7-Strings, really? Still?
Well, there seems that there is a slight glimmer of hope headed our way. OF course, this is my opinion, but here is a short list of some bands that I think have been initiating a new Rock Sound.
Zwan
White Stripes
Queens of the Stone Age
And for those of you who just need to head bang
Deftones (I know they have been around, but I like them)
Cold
Just thought I would share.

The first time I tuned to a "classic rock" station and started hearing things that I listened to growing up...

we seem to have somewhat different tastes. i dont know the first three you mentioned, but i have heard Deftones and Cold and dont like either. i like punk, and bands like Bush, Adema, Hoobastank, Tool, and many others.
i got tired of Classic Rock a few years ago

Rock music is teen-age music -- that's what I always heard. I think it's pathetic that so many fellow baby-boomers still listen to it. Are they ever going to develop the maturity to move on to grown-up music? (You know, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, big band sound. ...)
Harry Connick Jr. (from my town!) is the only one these days who's making music for grown-ups.
I look in People magazine and wonder why there are so few stories about the _real_ celebrities. Most of the people they write about about were nobodies back in 1963.

QueensOTSA rock!
Currently I'm digging Melvins and Fantomas. They've been around a while - I've not found anything new that's really got me going unfortunately.

Going back to my heavy metal days from when I was in highschool, 7/29 I'll be going to see Motorhead, Dio, and Iron Maiden. I know... but hey, I'm getting in for free!

I saw Aerosmith and Kid Rock last summer. Both were EXCELLANT. Run DMC or whatever is left of them was there and they all played together. I'd love to see Aerosmith again!!

Well, I would have listed Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald before the ones you named, but I'm not going to be snooty about it. :roll: To each their own. I quite enjoy "classic" rock. And I have no idea who Gregg's talking about, but I'm willing to assume they might have some merit.
