Rob Zombie Says Rock Hasn't Recovered From Grunge
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.15.2014



Rob Zombie recently spoke with TeamRock Radio from the UK's Download Festival about the state of rock in the US and more. Zombie was asked about his experience of playing Download in 1995 compared to today and whether he's been a part of bringing energy back into rock concerts, which led him to say that rock has never recovered from the anti-rock star image of the grunge movement.

"In the '90s, when the grunge rock thing hit, with Nirvana and all that, everybody thought it was cool to be anti-rock star," Zombie said. "But in a way they sort of anti-rock starred themselves right out the door, because the rap guys came in and they said, 'Fuck it. We'll be the rock stars then, if you guys are going to wear flannel shirts and stare at your feet.' And in the U.S., truthfully, rock music has never recovered from that. A whole generation of kids thought, 'Fuck this! Rock music is boring. Let's go listen to rap music.' And it's never recovered. I mean, over [in the U.K.] it's different. You could never throw a festival like this in the U.S. and get this many people, with just rock music. Never."

Zombie added that after his tour he would be heading into the studio to finish his next album and then heading off to work on his next film 31, which would close out the year for him. You can listen below:
