Exploring the aesthetic of rock-as-elegy… or how the current state of rock nostalgia is a harbinger of the apocalypse. Rock & roll aesthetics defined as the gestures of insubordination, youth, rebellion, anger, disobedience, radicalism, forbidden sexuality, and experimentation. A generation that has the history of rock culture’s peak behind it, and now witnesses repetitions more or less hollow in the public theater of culture: Kurt Cobain’s suicide and banal quote of “not fade away” and the resurgence of past musical stylings as ultra-fast era montage.
