    So what "new" (rock? is that what you guys still call it) music do you and your peers listen too? Old man wants to know. Post clips if you can.

    ;)

    Please don't mention any dinosaurs. ;)

    Sorry, that Dave Grohl/Foo Fighters thread made me start this one. Because, I really don't think that Dave and the boys are still "relevant" to the kids.

    I think it is kinda "old". My peers do not listen to this kind of stuff. I am not from England.

    How about if we're over 40 and just never got stuck in one place musically and continue to listen to new artists all the time...stuff that the younger folks listen to...do we count?

    As far as the Foo Fighters, I think that's true for some and not for others...ya know, younger people are varied as well...

    The grunge era is becoming the new classic rock and there is a whole contingent of younger folks that love going through that era and discovering all the late 80's/90's bands, grunge and otherwise. Some of them dig the Foo Fighters.

    Some more close-minded folks hell-bent on being "hip" will dismiss it out of hand as it has a strong "old man" rock vibe to it...part of that will be merely because of the demographic it's aimed at and part of that will be because of the vibe of the actual music. I like the Foo Fighters and all, but everything past the first album has a very "adult contemporary" sound about it. I always thought it was odd how there's such a complete lack of edge to the music.

    Not so new now, maybe even 10 years old. And they seem to have followed the "AC/DC" formula. Both being from Australia.? But they still get me pumped up.. But then again, I am an "old man" too.

    Well, this just came out. I don't care for it, but my girlfriend loves it. I liked him better in Humble Pie... :D

    +1 for As Tall As Lions. Been into Geographer, Alvvays, and The War On Drugs for a bit now. TWOD has some great, fun guitar playing in it too. Midlake's album "Antiphon" is a cool, 70's prog influenced romp that I REALLY enjoyed.

    I hope the answer to that is, yes, we count, because 40 is within site, just around the bend for me. I make a point to not dwell on the past. I don't want to be like that eternal hesher we all know, or the '90s guy who only listens to the same three Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Blind Melon albums they did when they were in their teens...

    No, you (we) don't count. ;)

    That is the whole point of this thread. Because most of us who are in our 40's and up, thinks that because we.. "still listen" and think that we are.. "aware" of what's "cool"…that we sometimes think or we thought, we know what's hip, cool, relevant….or fresh ;)

    I'm in my mid 40's with a new-ish family. When I turned 40, to be honest I wasn't, and still didn't feel old. 40 is just the beginning of the downfall to grumpiness about music and anything music related…lol ;) After awhile you feel like you've seen it all, and heard it all and everything else is just a rehash..of something..
