Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times profiled the current state of rock ‘n roll’s upsurge in popularity that has had its origins it two areas. There’s been a mainstream revival led by Linkin Park, and the alternative revival has been led by the Strokes. Sanneh writes, “Both bands play guitar-driven rock, but they exist in different universes. Linkin Park is hugely popular and hopelessly unhip.” While of the Strokes, he stated they “epitomize hipster chic: their jeans fit like pantyhose, and their music is calculated to whip residents of New York’s East Village into a frenzy.” Indystar.com has since removed the article.
