Disney is killing rock music

As asinine and droll as the local Top 40 station is, I’m finding the Disney Channel to be the largest threat to rock music today. The biggest hits among kids lately have been movies and series revolving around music and musicians, starting with “High School Musical” and now with “Jonas Brothers” and “Camp Rock.”

The biggest offender is “Camp Rock.” Imagine the movie “School of Rock” except replace the musical influences of AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath with Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson. It’s not rock music! It should be called “Pop Camp.” Or “Camp with Pop.” Or “Incidental and background distorted electric guitars overshadowed by pop vocals Camp.” Kids who watch “Camp Rock” will think this is rock music! It’s not! Don’t believe the lies!
