I don't understand why you'd see a band four times if you think they suck.

Rocks bands are in a serious drought.there are hardly even MAINSTREAM rocks bands today on my ipod. i only have groups like MGMT,Passion Pit, Ratatat(they don't sing but their tracks are funky), Phoenix, Band of Horses, Block Pary, The Black Keys, etc...but i don't consider them mainstream. What happen to the Pink Floyds, LZ, Hendrix Exp', The Doors, Beatles, Halls and Oates(not rock but soul) and all those other white bands from the late 60s to early 80s.They were MAINSTREAM and were real good.

All these mainstream rocks bands today are green and generic as hell.Besides Kings of Leon.

Check out the link I just posted in the 'Rate the song above you' thread. Don't know if it classifies as soulful rock, but check it out. By an artist called Biffy Clyro, Scottish fella I think. Check YouTube for more of his stuff.

It's simple, you have to sell your soul to go mainstream.

i disagree. sam phillips use to say something along the lines of "the audience will follow the performer, and it never has to be the other way around." he was right, even in a different time, different place. it's just nobody has had the right combination of balls (integrity) and opportunity (connections) in a long time.

Well IMO in order for a song to have soul the artist has to have passion for what he/she is singing about. Since the music industries basically tell you what to sing about its hard to have passion for lyrics that mean nothing. Look at the 70's as an example. The whole rock music movement was in sync with the peace movement and all the anti Vietnam War shit going on. So the artists incorporated that in their songs, and since they believed what they were saying the music sounded damn good. For example

Jimi:
White collared conservative flashing down the street,

Pointing their plastic finger at me.
They're hoping soon my kind will drop and die,
But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high.
Wave on, wave on
Fall mountains, just don't fall on me
Go ahead on Mr. Business man, you can't dress like me.
Sing on Brother, play on drummer.

Long story short, my theory is: no passion = no soul.

i'll go beyond that and say no exuberance = no soul. i separate passion for what you're writing or singing from having a good time sharing it with other people, and i think that's the key difference from music being soulful or not.

Sure, exuberance = passion for making people feel good, right?

yeah, there's just a difference between doing it because you know you're good at it and think you can make a living off doing it vs. doing it because you love it and because you know people will like it. sorry i can't articulate it perfectly right now, been hittin the bottle.
