It's not bad. It's actually pretty good. There's many songs you would love if you just listened to it. The world is riddled with the shitty rap and hip hop music and rock n roll is not being covered by the media as much as it should. Rock n roll is about sex, drugs and rock n roll which scares people or gives them a bad mental image but rap and hip hop does the same but it's just not labeled as "sex, drugs and hip hop/rap". Gangsta rap and crap like that promotes the same thing as rock n roll but additionally there's guns and killing involved with the hip hop/rap scene. Rock n roll is about having a good fucking time with sex, drugs and rock n roll music..That's it. Just that. In the 80's everyone had a GREAT time, myself excluded because I was born mid-way through. If you just listened to the guitars, drums, bass and voice you would very soon take a liking to it. It's NOT noise. It's raw and it's real. These bands actually SING a song and tell you a story about something sexual (mostly). This city thrives on casual sex and this music would be best for this city. The attitude rock n roll conveys is mostly a dirty, sexy vibe considering there's a plethora of sexual innuendo's attached to most songs stories. I can only suggest you give rock n roll a chance. Find a person who is hardcore into rock n roll and detests hip hop/rap (like me) and you will find a new sound...and maybe a new soundtrack for your life. AC/DC is by far my most favorite band ever! EVER! I have not heard anyone say they don't like AC/DC....Don't listen to the media. Discover your own music. Everyone still has some rock n roll in them...you just have to ignite the spark again. Let's bring Rock N Roll back to Vancouver!!!!! No! Let's bring Rock N Roll back to the world!!!!!!!
