People Are Upset With Bono’s Comments On Today’s Music
Bono voiced his opinion about the current state of music in his latest interview with Rolling Stone.

When Rolling Stone asked him if he thought we might experience a rock & roll revolution soon, he responded:
“I think music has gotten very girly. And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment – and that’s not good. When I was 16, I had a lot of anger in me. You need to find a place for it and for guitars, whether it is with a drum machine – I don’t care. The moment something becomes preserved, it is fucking over. You might as well put it in formaldehyde. In the end, what is rock & roll? Rage is at the heart of it. Some great rock & roll tends to have that, which is why the Who were such a great band. Or Pearl Jam. Eddie has that rage.”
