Rock and Roll has gone through many dynamic changes, as musicians find new ways to expand and explore their favorite genres. As different styles grew, these styles also rose in popularity. There was always a growing audience to listen to and appreciate the music in their own personal way.

The Future of Rock and Roll – Live Music Favorites Upcoming Interview Series
In October 1938, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the Godmother of Rock in Roll, picked up her guitar and gave birth to an entirely new idea: Rock and Roll. Ever since, Rock and Roll has grown and changed, giving musicians and listeners a fresh new way to experience music. Music, just like any art form, experiences ebbs, and flows where different styles become more popular than others.

As we listen through today’s top 100 lists, we are faced with the reality that the Rock and Roll we’ve grown up with is no longer. Sometime in the last decade or two EDM, Hip Hop, and Pop have tried to push out other music categories from the top spots. This is a far cry from the Rock and Roll dominated charts that we vividly remember from our youth.

As we enter into a new decade, we at Live Music Favorites wonder if this influential genre will be accompanying us. There are few older bands from the Vans Warped Tour heyday that have found ways to adapt with the times, such as the Fall Out Boy’s, My Chemical Romance, and Panic! At this Disco. However, many other popular Rock bands have found multi-genre influences to form new sounds, and may not qualify as your “traditional” rock band.

They’re tired of rock and roll

I try to tell them, “hey, that drum machine ain’t got no soul.”

Rock and Roll has gone through many dynamic changes, as musicians find new ways to expand and explore their favorite genres. As different styles grew, these styles also rose in popularity. There was always a growing audience to listen to and appreciate the music in their own personal way.

So here is the question: Is Rock and Roll Dead?

Many stated that Disco was dead in its decline, but a lot of popular dance music written and performed today could prove otherwise. Did Disco die, or did it just evolve? If Disco can be resurrected into a brand-new way to reach new listeners, what does this mean for Rock and Roll?

We at Live Music Favorites are going on a mission to answer these questions not only for ourselves but for our fans. It is our pleasure to announce the launch of our new interview series: The Future of Rock and Roll. We will be interviewing different musicians to hear their thoughts on the state of the genre and where it’s going.

Do you think Rock and Roll is dead?
