If AOR could integrate hip-hop...

... it just might resurrect the genre. I think why AOR and hair metal took a curtain call in the early '90s was because it didn't know how to re-invent itself for the coming decade. The last tweaking of the genre came with Extreme and the whole funk thing.

If AOR/metal could somehow assimilate hip-hop influences in a way that is convincing to the youth (without irritating the hard rock contingency), I think it could be HUGE!! Of course, the rapcore stuff of today isn't melodic enough in the music dept. and definitely could benefit from some REAL old-school guitar solos!

I think big choruses, wild guitar solos, partytime lyrics, cool Motley Poison-style riffs interlaced with turntable scratching and sophisticated rapping could be just the ticket out of Dullsville we've all been waiting for.
