    Hence, any rock band taking itself too seriously sucks.

    This is pure FACT.

    So much of a fact that, despite not being properly a "rock" band, here's the last real rock band of the 20th century.

    Yo Seitse, I'm really happy for you and I'm gonna let you finish, but
    Black Sabbath had one of the best rock songs of all time!

    Some.

    It's called mariachi music, though.

    Anyway, here's a little gem from another real rock band.

    Not as B side and underground as you would wish, but at least is not Thuderstruck.

    Don't they kick arse, my man? 🙂

    You might as well have played Thunderstruck. You heard one AC/DC song, you've heard them all. 😀

    the Beastie Boys were indeed a great group. And I would definitely consider them to be a rock band.

    I like the way they blended traditional rock with 80's hip-hop to come up with something wasn't really "either". But isn't that kind of what "rock" is supposed to be about?

    Not sure if "irreverence" has anything to do with it, though -- isn't everyone irreverent now? - the last time society "revered" anything was probably in 1969. If someone REALLY wants to be rebellious, they should put out something that sounds like Abba.
