Alice Cooper slams modern rock

-- My pet peeve right now is that 80 to 90% of the modern rock bands are just testosterone free.  I'm listening to these bands going, "Where's the spark?  Where's the fire?"

-- You get in a rock band to be something different.  I guess modern rock bands just really want to blend in and I think it's the most boring time in rock I've ever seen.

-- These bands are whining like crazy.  It's like they're trying NOT to be rock stars.

-- I just don't get the fact that everyone is so against having an image.

He went on to say that two artists he's really impressed with right now are Jack White and the Foo Fighters.

PREACH IT ALICE!  I think a lot of modern rock bands have the "if we step out of the main stream we'll get swept away in the current" mindset.  Meaning if they do something "different" they'll be forgotten.

In a way I think he's dead on.  It's the old school "sell out" debate.  I've seen some of my favorite "out there" rock and metal bands fall in line with the mainstream (ahem, Mudvayne, Slipknot) and become homogenized rock bands.

He's right. It's pretty much the reason why I never listen to the radio anymore. Not trying to bash or anything. The only thing I hear that's any good on the Planet is the 90s stuff. Just about everything else sounds like some kind of Nickelback/Shinedown/Theory of a Deadman lovefest.

Grohl and White
These guys are endlessly talented. Alice has seen his share of rocker dudes the past 50 years. I would enjoy a collaboration with all three to write one song and crush it.
