This article is a little old, but I just came across it, you can read it here.

In the article Kid Rock says the Steven Tyler has "destroyed" Rock N' Roll by going on American Idol, this is coming from guy that performed rap metal for many years. Not that theres anything wrong with that, but according to his standards, such a fusion of genres should be considered a desecration of the holy institution of Rock N' Roll.

But is RnR really such a holy institution? Didn't rock originate from musicians that rebelled against the standardized music of their time? It seems like one type of orthodoxy has been replaced with another kind - Rock N' Roll orthodoxy.

So, now that RnR has become a quasi-religion, is it time to rebel against it?
