In short, Social Rock is music that's about what's going on around us in today's society as it relates to the internet, social media, etc... and it's effect on humans.
Social Rock is music which includes aspects of the internet and technology that are anti-social and/or have a negative effect on humans in general. It takes it’s term from various sources including Social Media and Folklore.
As with the term social media, social rock talks about things that are really anti-social behavior, things you wouldn’t really want to talk about in social settings, without appearing to be a Debbie Downer, even though they are true and important topics. Proper etiquette says you don’t discuss Politics or Religion. Social Music is presented in a way that is enjoyable (cute graphics) and non-confrontational (What do you want to say today?) while also discussing problems going on around us today. Much like every social media site ever invented.
The interesting thing about Social Rock is it also has another connection rooted in folklore, which has a connection with social media. The term Social Rock in folklore describes someone who is Antisocial. This person is usually rude, mean, jerkish or just extremely quiet. Interestingly, that is the exact same way millions of people express their opinions online through social media, blogs, chatrooms and comment sections in this new age. No filters, the fourth wall has been removed so to speak.
The most ironic thing about Social Rocks (in folklore) is they dont like other people and hate talking. They are usually found always alone at public places (urbandictionary**). But thanks to their addiction to social media coupled with the ability to hide behind the screen anonymously, these introverts have been transformed for online usage to the point they don’t feel the hate and pain they get when they are out in the real world, with the public. Behind their screens they let every thought, emotion, idea and belief scream out through the keyboard. They can finally feel free to say the things they would never say otherwise … which is odd because they never said things before, which is antisocial, and now they get a “release” by being able to say things, but they are still being anti-social. Weird shit ‘eh?
Social Rock covers every topic tied to the internet, social media and it’s relation, and corrollation, to humans in the real world.
