Re: Music question: Should the sins of the children be visited upon the parents?
Okay, lets just say this now...
As bands like Husker Du, MBV (Loveless is a friggen great CD), The Great Fire of 1666/Biology/Interpol/Sonic Youth...come out and make new music bands like Hawthorne Hieghts, My Chemical Romance (Who sounds a hell of alot like Queen now) will always "pop-iffy" it and cliche it.
Hate the sins for the childern more because the "parent" bands set the trends..
Looking back you can say this as well.
The Misfits =>Metilica, Balzac, AFI, Son of Sam, Samhain and eventually Danzig.
Each "parent" band winds up influencing a "child" band...
Both poison's my suck though...just depends on your taste.
