The Classic Rock Age And Today's Youth

I would like everyone to think of the decades of the 1960s and 1970s as the Classic Rock Age. During the late 1960s a phenomenon referred to as the British Invasion hit the youth of the world like a rock! Bands coming from the UK brought a literal renaissance to the world of music and heavily changed and influenced the direction of rock and roll forever. Bands from the UK were, in turn, heavily influenced by blues and jazz bands from the U. S.

Have you noticed how so many things from the 1960s and 1970s seems to be coming back into style with today's youth? I grew up during the ‘60s and ‘70s and now I often see teenagers wearing very similar styles of clothing and even using a lot of the same slang from when I was a teenager so many years ago.

Better than that the young people of today seem to have found that the music from the 1960s and 1970s is really cool too. It makes me feel good when I hear stuff like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin coming from a young person's vehicle. Music is a matter of taste, but I find that most of the music of recent decades leave a lot to be desired. Sure, there has been some good music recorded in recent years and I like a lot of it, but nothing comes close to the classic rock bands.

A lot of teenagers express their opinions and tastes in music by wearing T-shirts and by putting bumper stickers on their vehicles. You will often see them wearing shirts with great rock bands on them like AC/DC, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and a lot of other rock groups and performers of the classic rock age. Of course this isn't limited to teenagers, a lot of us older folk still dig the good stuff!

Some time ago I worked with a lot of high school age people. I was surprised to hear so many of them talk about rock bands like Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, KISS and Frank Zappa. Not too long ago music had to be new to be cool among the younger generation, but today's youth has gotten smarter and they are looking for music that is real.

You can see it on the new television shows, music videos, sitcoms and at the local mall and school - The Classic Rock Age is back.
