The future of rock: discourses that struggle to define a genre
Linköping University, Department for Studies of Social Change and Culture, Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden. Linköping University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
1995 (English)In: Popular Music, ISSN 0261-1430, E-ISSN 1474-0095, Vol. 14, no 1, 111-125 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Facing the millenial shift, the article enters the debate on the future or alleged death of rock music. Changing technological, eco­nom­ical, institutional, sub­ject­ive, social and aesthetic transformations are analyzed, in order to see how the use values of rock may be affected or even eroded. A wide and a narrow genre definition is contrasted, and their mutual conflict is seen as crucial to the historical development of rock. The article argues that rock survives as long as various actors engage in discursive struggles to define it differently, fighting for the right to rock.
