Man, the music establishment is really pushing Greta Van Fleet hard eh?

Well, one can hope it leads to something of a rock resurgence I suppose.

It's in the music industry's interest to normalize the idea of imitating classic rock brands. Like The Smiths? Here's a band that rips off their sound and affectations! Like Nirvana? Here's some Grunge Boys!

No longer does rock music need to be an authentic art-form. It's a brand.

That's a great point. I hadn't really thought of it like that. I don't think most people will buy it in the long run, but one can never know.

Does you like four ppl who play drums/bass/guitar/guitar? You say you like the sing sound of vocalizers? Have we got the things for you what if i told you you could step right up and hear the sounds of a band? Knock off your titty aching and get down to the local shop where you can hear the sweet sounds of the dream for only five ninety nine installments of easy pmts per month? There’s so many affectations you can find the four or five dudes (possibly a special women or two) that will make you forgot about your dads hairy chest all trembling with condescension/fear of losing his only boy or two!!!!!!!!!

Maybe they'll rip off Yes on their next album. Expand their rip off horizons.

Greta Van Fleet doesn't just sound like Led Zeppelin. Like, they sound so much like them that I can't tell the difference. it's kinda insane. also led zeppelin sucks.

some people dislike good things

it's a concept i've been struggling with for a while, but i've finally come to accept it

i simply look, shake my head, smile & say "you poor kid" then continue on my merry way

I'm no fan either, but at least they can actually kinda play and have some talent.

Yeah buddy. I can see how the vocals and lyrics aren't for everyone, but damn, those guys could create some legit rock and roll energy.

Hot teak - Greta Van Fleet is way better than that band that did "this is the story of a girl"
