Danko Jones, on rock music

“Rock music is not a music to represent the masses anymore. It’s been kicked and beaten down, unquestionably the result of over-exposure, kind of like when wine gets “corked” (who needs to hear “Stairway To Heaven” ever again?). However, it now wears its scars on its sleeve and has become darker, more sinister and less vulnerable to bullshit. Sure it comes with baggage but it yields to no one. It’s hardened, just like it’s supposed to sound, and it’s glorious.”

-Danko Jones, in an essay for visions.de
