The godfather of Chinese rock music Cui Jian said, “There isn’t real rock music in China; it’s just a phenomenon. Comparing to the western rock music, the Chinese one is just an infant.” I agree with it. The western rock music stems from the working class of the society; however, the Chinese one is mainly popular among the youngsters, as the key of rock music is rebellion. The cynical young people prefer to relieve their angers and pressures come from the generation gaps and the society through rock music.

I think it's hard to define rock and roll. Every person has different rock'n'roll in his or her mind.
I like Cui Jian's "Nothing to my name."

chinese rock is growing and im pretty optimistic. it is authentic in terms of attitude (attitude is everything!)...anger, freedom, rebellion, groove or whatever u call...
yeah rock music is prosperous in the west, but wtf is the'rebellion' all about anyway...i mean what do western kids kick against nowadays? they're too lazy for it...it's not the 70s, anarchy is gone gone gone. now it's just INDUSTRYso enjoy and make the most of it man...CHINA ROCKS INTO THE FUTURE;)

Is it ridiculous that Cui Jian is still standing in the center stage of China's Rock 'n' Roll scene?
how could he keep "anger" and "rebellion" after 20 years?
