There is a forever it seems debate about the merits of the rock n roll of each generation. Of course it is common for many my age to say that real rock died around 1980 with the advent of "hair bands." I myself was never a huge fan of the hair bands, preferring skinny tie and punk at that time. However I have never jumped on the "our music was better" bandwagon. If one knows where to look and does a little bit of "research" one can find quality hard music from all eras. Behold "Children of Bodom," an excellent Northern European group that knows a bit about how to play rock n roll.
