Questions to guide you on your journey (use some or all – player’s choice):
How did Jann Wenner’s approach to music journalism exemplify the contradictions and power imbalances of the 1970s and help create the traditional canon of popular music?
Which groups benefited from early rock journalism? Which segments of society, artists, groups, and/or styles were dismissed or even suppressed by early rock criticism, and why?
How do the biases inherent in early rock criticism (including racism, sexism, and homophobia) play into the critical response to early heavy metal, punk, disco, and other somewhat “niche” genres (you could talk about 80s metal and 80s/90s rap here if you wish), as well as bigger-picture genres (e.g. black pop)? In what ways are the views of these critics still felt today?
Can you find evidence of a change in popular music criticism/journalism that indicates new ideas and a re-thinking of the popular music canon are emerging?
Do you think a “canon” of popular music still relevant today? Why or why not? Use your knowledge from the course and strong research to explain and argue your points
