As far as I'm concerned avril laveignes hello kitty song was a badass idea and it just got a lot of negative reviews... But it inspired me cuz it's different

It is indeed. Rhythms are among the most complex I've ever heard; To become an average jazz drummer you need to practice hours per day, for years. Not to mention that a four-limb independence must also be learned. But rock? Pfff. It ain't so tough as everybody says. John Bonham, Keith Moon, Dave Grohl... Whatever; They couldn't swing a sack of shit to Max Roach.

I am probably in the minority and that is ok but I don't care what label is on the music. If it's a good song, meaning it moves me in some way really that is all I want and need out of music. A lot of times it's just being in the right frame of mind at the right time. It's not about ability, talent, how much money you have , or the clothes you wear. It's about expression and how you feel.

If there's no new room in an art form, that art form is dead.

I don't think it's true that there's nothing new to do in rock, but it doesn't matter too much because there's always something new to do in music, so why worry if it's rock or not?

Also, I don't think being able to play really complicated stuff is necessarily "better". I was always really inspired by the radical simplicity of bands like Bikini Kill. Simplicity is a virtue. But complexity is cool too.

As long as you enjoy the music then who cares what it is or how it is played.

I enjoy 2+2=4 but 9x9=81 is better because it's slightly more complicated. The best is 16 y 2 - x 2 = 16 because it takes more knowledge to appreciate. Is this right?

You're damn right. 2+2 isn't to my taste. I would rather sit by the fire with a cigar and some brandy and enjoy 16 y 2...

Complex things can be put in a simple way -- That's when "simple" is enjoyable, when it becomes deep, when it has a meaning to it. As a drummer, I'd be bored to death if my band wanted me to play a standard 2/4 time signature beat all the time... And that would also make the songs sound like they're all the fucking same thing repeated over and over.
