Rock Band Challenge 2017

Challenge to all rock bands in 2017.

So, you’ve had 50 years to do rock better than those in the 50s and 60s. Let’s see what you’ve got.

First listen to this 2017 cover of the classic hit, 25 or 6 to 4, originally recorded by the rock band Chicago in 1969. Then show me something better. Rock bands you’ve had 50 years to improve, so show me something better.

This cover is by Leonid & Friends, a band from the Ukraine. I don’t know this band, but it is my contention that hardly any rock band today has recorded a better rock classic with a better arrangement than what Chicago did in 1969 and Leonid and Friends covered virtually note for note in 2017. By using their version the tune has a tech update so it can compete on the same tech quality as anything recorded this year.

My contention is that rock has not gotten better, and it’s time for a change, a revolution in music. See Musea.

This is NOT saying that musicians today are not talented. They are for sure. My Big List, the first list of the best music of the entire internet and the world, proves that with 200+ examples. But it also proves that the same rock band format has not improved in 50 years, and the best musicians are those that are trying new music, or at least recreating the spirit of the original musicians exactly.

So to rock bands in 2017 who disagree, accept my challenge, and show me your band recording. Show me an original that is a better song, arrangement, and performance.
