With parents appreciating dance, the average teenager has to find something ele to rebal with- ie, that noisy giutar sh*te racket.
Wow. So plodding about in a disco was rebellious, I never knew.

Ah Biff. How I've missed your input.
Basically, my parents hate that repetitive bleepy stuff kids these days listen too. And the whole scene of drugs and excesses, so popularised by the media, is something that kids can use to stand up to their folks.
Yet now, those around in the late 80's are fully grown up, sprogs and all. Teenagers naturally rebel, in an effort to distinguish themselves as individuals- hence the revival of grunge/metal- probably the worst thing I could imagine my kids coming home with!
No matter how cool or trendy you are, when the time comes you find out that the world has changed, leaving you out in the cold, reminiscing about things that fewer and fewer people remember.
Now, for years, it was dance which overshadowed rock, providing a new underground for the kids to bury themselves into.
We've been seeing kids dressed in black, with Nirvana shirts for years now, and the nu-metal commercialisation has begun.
I reckon the two fields are pretty contrasting and will just continue to alternate as the media music of choice for years to come.
What say you Biff?
