Do we even know what rock & roll is? Seems the term has been applied to all sorts of music.

I know what you mean, Causnorign! My BF and I were listening to some "country" music the other evening and he made the comment, "This is country music? Sounds like old time rock and roll to me!".....

Well rock'n'roll has been around for over 50 years now - I think it's here to stay!

Rock means rock.

Roll means you roll along with it (Rolling Stones are a good example).

Ah anyways, rock music is here to stay. We just need to take metals away.
