RNV 28: Haters Gonna Hate
After a number of weeks of some great guests on Rock'N Vino, Coco & Mike roll solo for this week's episode to tackle a big musical topic - taking chances and fan backlash.
Maroon 5 made news this week for their performance at halftime of an otherwise uneventful Super Bowl, with the Twitterverse exploding with snark and disdain for band's performance, shredding them on every corner of the Internet. Just a month before, Imagine Dragons performed at halftime of the College Football Championship game to a similar barrage of hot takes, with Spin asking the question "Are Imagine Dragons the Worst Band Ever?" Just two weeks ago, Bring Me The Horizon released their latest album 'amo', an album that took a sharp divergence from the band's signature heavy rock sound, leaving critics and fans sharply divided.
On this week's episode of Rock'N Vino, Coco & Mike take a deep dive into the way listeners react to music and how fans react to their favorite bands taking chances or exploring new sounds. How has Twitter and social media changed the way we consume and react to performances? Why does the rock genre frown on success and popularity more than others? They may not have all the answers, but they'll dive into these pressing topics and more on this week's episode of Rock'N Vino.
