The future of rock (and our children) has never been more in doubt. I’m not sure whether to be sad or angry. Or both. I’m “sangry.”

Metallica recently released their new single and video for “Hardwired” from their upcoming album “Hardwired…to Self-Destruct,” album out November 18th…

I dig it. It’s received mostly favorable reviews from even the most hardcore Metallica fans. However that is not the point. Whether you like the song or not, you KNOW who Metallica IS. They’re one of the most successful not in just heavy metal, but BANDS OF ALL-TIME. I understand age can play a factor in knowledge of music, but it’s up to your elders to teach you. I’m 33, never saw The Doors or Led Zeppelin. However my dad taught me all about them. Same goes for Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard…all WAY before my time…

But who is raising THESE kids?!?

Funny? I suppose. Metallica themselves laughed along…

While some of these youngsters showed maturity and willingness to expand their musical tastes from the Biebers and Swifts of the world, others deserve a massive wedgey. Parents, please raise your kids right. The future of rock n’ roll depends on it.
