Crap rock is extremely soft rock
from the early eighties, with bands such as Air Supply
. The peak of crap rock was around 1982. A common misconception is to confuse crap rock with punk rock, which is minimalist music such as the white stripes
or the sex pistols
. Punk rock
was a rebellion to prog rock
, music with extravagant solos and keyboards.
Air Supply" would be the epitome of crap rock. Other examples would include Peter Cetera, the Commodores and Lionel Richie, Hall & Oates, Kenny Loggins as well as Joe Cocker and Jenniffer Warnes' famous song "Up Where We Belong."
Simple rock music
that isn't about being Joe Satriani
; played by people who just want to make music; frequently using crappy gear with minimal studio production; often duos and trios entailing less than the standard rock ensemble. Hated by guitarist
s who practice all the time but never get famous.
Jack: Man, I hate crap rock. If that were me, I'd get a real drummer and put wailing solos all over the place.
Jill: Yeah, but this way people actually enjoy listening to it.
Very unoriginal and untalented "Hard Rock"... 30 Seconds to Mars, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Nickelback, Hinder, Seether, Theory of A Deadman, Bullet for my Faggotine, Avenged Gayfold, Agayu... They all sound the same! WTF?
The only "Post-Grunge" bands worth a shit are Skillet and Alter Bridge, at least they do something of different and they're talented musicians.
In less words 30 Seconds of a Breaking Theory of a Nickelback in Three Days of Seether (Crap Rock) sucks monkey balls.
SCREW NICKELBACK, THREE DAYS GRACE AND ALL THIS CRAP THAT REALLY SUCKS, GIVE ME SOME IRON MAIDEN, MEGADETH, BLACK SABBATH, QUEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, AEROSMITH, MOTLEY CRUE, WHITESNAKE, SCORPIONS, HELLOWEEN, LED ZEPPELIN, DEEP PURPLE....!
music written & recorded by musicians simply becuase they can. They are often mocked & teased because they are 'childish' - however just enjoy music for what it is. They are not to be confused with music that is actually shit, where by shit music simple sucks.
eg: famous crap rock bands: Tenacious D, KISS, Dragon Force
eg: Famous SHIT bands: U2, wolfmother, the killers
of music made famous in the early 21st century by the band White Stripes
, centered around making a multi-million dollar Compact Disc
digital recording sound like a 5 dollar vinyl
record from the 60's. The music itself is simple in nature, and is often what most beginning musicians
write in their early attempts at creating decent music. Brought into the mainstream
by scene kids
who thought that listening to an underground
band was cool
; Do not make the mistake in believing that these crap rock
artists are all bad musicians
, but just that most make it their goal to make bad music for people with no taste to eat up, while the artist makes money for music that most would consider unfit for major label
(Jill)- "Hey Jack, have you heard the new White Stripes
(Jack)- "Sorry Jill, I don't listen to crap rock
