    no.

    if a song is a means of expression why restrain the creativity ??

  • No, that is why Progressive Rock/Metal is one of my favorite genres. The song structure is fairly unsteady and the songs aren't formulaic.

    That is why I really dislike mainstream rock. It follows this basic concept seemingly every song.
