>>1897434>there's a reason you're behind a monitor arguing with me on 4chan rather than doing something with that knowledge
I've played in many bands through the years. Only guitar on stage, but I also play the piano, bass and some more eclectic instruments. And one of my hobbies is transcribing chord progressions. I've also thought. And a person in my extended family owns a music academy, and we share theory.
It's just that, on top of that, I've been shitposting around here since '04, and I'm here forever. But do keep on projecting.
Also, yet again, it's not a question of history, even if, of course, it is an important factor that affects it tangentially. It is a question of genre. Style. Melody. What you'd call a symphony has some basic requirements to be a symphony, and what you'd call rock has some basic requirements to be rock. Requirements I've listed. And the shitty band posted in OP doesn't fulfill these basic requirements. And yes, if it doesn't make you "sway to and fro", which is the dictionary definition of "to rock" and the reason why the genre was baptized as such, then clearly it isn't rock.
Keep on feeling proud about your own lack of knowledge while talking down to those trying to share some knowledge though.
