GUEST,Tunesmith Dodgy Artistic Licence? (62* d) RE: Dodgy Artistic Licence? 27 Oct 17


Well, I think, musically and lyrically, Punk had it over Skiffle, for example.
It did move away from American dominated vocals, and speak to young people.
To be far, as a young person, I never felt put upon by the older generation.
For example, I cringed the first time I heard "My Generation"( pre- punk, I know)
But, then, again, I was in my early 20s when the song came out, and I do know that certain friends of mine, who where five or six years younger than me, really related to the song.
Also, in retrospect,, I have a great sympathy for those fans of Swing back in the 50s when in was blown away by 3 chord rock'n'rollers.
