Is rock dead? Yes, if we don't get our facts straight

"Is rock dead?" posits Mark Hanson in the Grand Forks Herald (North Dakota) Teen Section: "From rock to punk to grunge, genre slowly fades into ruin".

Well, rock certainly might be dead if teenagers don't get their facts straight on rock history. Mark writes:
"Hey, hey. My, my. Rock 'n' roll will never die." This may have seemed true in 1969, when Neil Young sang it to thousands of strung-out fans at Woodstock in Bethel, N.Y.

Now, fast-forward to 2006, and you'll find modern rock in a state of utter ruin.

Since its birth in the early to mid-1900s, rock music has passed in and out of many different genres including rock 'n' roll, punk and grunge. As of today, all forms of rock, despite Neil Young's prophecy, are undeniably dead."

While Neil did perform at Woodstock, last we checked, "Hey, hey, My, my" was yet to be written.

Hey Mark, you need to go to Rock & Roll high school like Jake.

Neal Young is so right. We should have impeached this war criminal long before now...unless you like being lied to. Besides, 9/11 has been proven to be an inside job anyway. The evidence is overwhelming.

He's from the north
Has never sat on a Southern man's porch

We'll have to deal with the froth and the bait
as we wait
for his debate

But hither and thither;
is no reason
We sit here wondering aloud
Is it Treason?

Oh poor Neil stuck in the 60's
Oh poor Neil at 60
Looking for one last hurrah
To hang his hat on from a far

Tisk, tisk Mr. Can man from the north
Wish we could wisk you…
Dis you…

But, alas I have no stage
No lackeys too page
No cash or Asses too burn
I have to work for a livin and earn
listin to your disin about my girl
Almost causes me to hurl.

Tisk, tisk Mr. Can man from the north.
You feel the sands of time ebbin away?
Wishin for one last day?

You are not Peter Pan - MAN.
Not James Kirk.
Not even close to Kurt.

So stop your disin
For you will always be stuck in a rut
Wishin for the 60’s at 60

God bless my Girl!
