I can't think of Shock the Monkey without playing this scene in my head...

http://www.hulu.com/watch/262096
"Christianity is the belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie, who was his own father, can make you live forever, if you symbolically eat his flesh and drink his blood, and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity, because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.... makes perfect sense.

What did that poor monkey do, and what the fuck was that song talking about?

"I was not alone, for foolhardiness was not then mixed with that love of the grotesque and the terrible which has made my career a series of quests for strange horrors in literature and in life." H.P. Lovecraft, "The Lurking Fear" (1923)

That list lumps Brian Adams and The Clash into the same grouping. I'm calling shenanigans.

The entire first page of that is just "classic rock". I didn't bother to go any further.

To be fair the Venn diagram of classic rock and dad rock is almost a circle.

That seems like a pretty stupid and lazy label to me. Won't every generation have an affinity for the music that they grew up with? Was dad rock what my parent's generation listened to when I was a kid as they wistfully remembered their youth?

i'm pretty sure Pearl Jam is dad rock now so yeah pretty much. I doubt any of them were thinking "man I hope someone's dad likes this" when they were writing their music but "The music your dad listens to" is gonna change every generation until Black Sabbath is on a golden oldies station.
