People who think guitar rock is dead avoid Greta Van Fleet like the plague.

they're the ones who (wrongly) complain that there is no guitar in modern music, and so when something comes along in the mainstream with identifiable guitar, they love it.

Ahhh I see what you mean. So it's people who claim guitar music is dead but also really don't want guitar music to be dead.

Greta Van Fleet are utter shithouse, by the way, so I agree with everyone on that front.

my classic rock radio loving father told me once a little over a year ago that he thought greta van fleet was another nirvana and was about to kickstart an entire new wave of innovation in (mainstream) rock.

Nirvana had a unique sound that spoke to generational angst. Greta Van Fleet is a mediocre Led Zeppelin tribute band.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about.

Greta Van Fleet sounds like the name of a cool Dutch singer. You look at the photos of the band (if you do) and you wonder, 'which one's Greta'?

Sorry if my excitement over a band I recently discovered was annoying. Just thought I’d share my excitement over it in here because ummmm...that’s what people do in this thread.

But for a mod to start a thread with the intention of singling out and trolling a member of almost 20 years is probably one of the more childish things I’ve seen here. Diemen, is your intention was to lose yet another member, mission accomplished. Not going to be subjected to that kind of behavior.

There are a good number of you that I’m friends with on Facebook and you can find me there... and please keep in touch.

When I first heard the name a couple years ago I assumed it was a female solo artist, possibly Scandinavian, then I heard one of their songs and thought somebody unearthed something Jimmy Page had thrown out not intending for it to ever see the light of day and was really confused upon hearing it was Greta Van Fleet, thought that she had a very manly voice.

i get your point but please also understand from our perspective how irritating it became to have biffy clyro shoehorned into damn near every conversation in this thread regardless of the topic. it was mildly amusing the first couple times, the 30th time not so much. you know as well as anyone else around here how we have a tendency to turn annoying posts into over-the-top jokes and memes (coughredhillcough).

anyways i hope you stick around.

I gotta be honest, it didn't much impress me, irregardless of my (nonexistent) opinion of Biffy Clyro.

What I can't figure is why do all these seventies-leaning revival acts always reach for Plant/Page? To me Led Zeppelin weren't even that interesting the first time around.

it's not really my kind of music to be up to speed on but haven't there been a shit ton of artists lately ripping off taking a lot of inspiration from the glam rock/t rex sort of aesthetic?
