Are These Bands Already “Dad Rock”???

When I say “Dad Rock”, who comes to mind?  Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath?  Motley Crue and Iron Maiden?  Pearl Jam and Nirvana?

Sure . . . but how about My Chemical Romance and Linkin Park?

Some kid made a video saying that those bands are indeed Dad Rock now.  And so are acts like:

System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Deftones, Muse, Slipknot, Bullet for My Valentine, Skillet, Fall Out Boy, and Sum 41.

Interestingly and possibly ironically, I couldn’t help but notice the kid who made the video was wearing a Metallica shirt.

So, did this kid hit the mark, or is it too early to call these bands Dad Rock?
