Top 10 Things That Killed Rock and RollKellytheSinger

Saying that he killed Rock is like saying that he changed music. That all what became before him is obsolete and all that comes after him is his legacy. He is just one of the many bad artists of today's music with no importance in the history of music. Will be forgotten in a couple of years.
I hate 5 seconds they're big time posers. someone get rid of them, please!

This guy always seemed like a dork playing rock god. His lyrics were doofus, and his stage antics were staged for attention as opposed to spontaneously inspired by the song. Proof Cooper was a fake is Now a days he's a golfer.
A GOLFER? What a dork. - KellytheSinger
Alice is the best! his original music was ground breaking and intellectual.
the music was very detailed and his concepts were meant to be a "in your face goof". I think he is great! and to be around and selling for 46 years in the music industry, sort of speaks for itself. Todays paper thin crap won't be listened to in 10 years. don't forget the coop.
KISS influenced some of the best musicians today. Aside from people's opinion of their music, there would be know Pantera, Motley Crue, etc. if it weren't for KISS, so they, if nothing else, set the standard for Rock and Roll
These guys could never play their instruments. There are a ton of bands with more talent than KISS and Gene Simmons would sell his mother to make a dime. - hardrockfanatic
What! Ozzy is among one of the artists that has still kept Heavy Metal alive. I mean just listening to the new song, "God is Dead" got me back to the 80s metal scene. It was an amazing song. Whoever put this up here has no idea about music, or has a real bad taste in music.
Guns N' Roses,a heavy METAL band is what RESURRECTED rock in the 1980sV 2 Comments
You are refering to the death of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. But what about Eddie Cochran? He died one year later in 1960. What about the non-dead rockers who were very popular during the sixties like Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley etc... Rock and Roll didn't die in 1959. Some said that Elvis as Rock and Roll singer died when he was drafted into the army in 1958, but what about his 1968 comeback? Maybe there's no day when music died. Singers are dying but their music lives on forever.

In the 90s it was still possible to sell CDs and gain an audience with the presupposition that your band had a modicum of talent. Good bands/musicians were once revered. What happened is that people of younger generations lost something they may have never had. The ability to think critically. To think for themselves. The ability to discern between what's not bad and what's musically abhorrent. Furthermore when they are out at a club where live music is being performed it only serves as background music to their incessant texting. I'd gladly give up my cell to go back to a time when people weren't constantly distracted and were effectively compelled to pay attention to what they spent their cover charges on: the bands. It's despairing to be a musician and see bands doing everything and anything to find that "box" outside of which to think. Record sales used to matter. Now you sell 100,000 units and you're at the top of the charts. That's tragic and where's the motivation for record ...more
He's one of the reasons rock and roll started dying. His mission was to make rock and roll dangerous again. That's not a good thing. Not a good thing at all.
Many people who think 'differently' are now taking happy pills, or calming pills, full time, and their thoughts are one color, instead of the palette needed for creative songwriting.
