Editors’ Notes You don’t have to wear sandals with socks to love dad rock. All that’s required is a healthy degree of affection not just for the artists who defined what rock could be in the ‘60s and ‘70s but for those who give it relevance and vitality in the present, too. It’s about loving a tradition of direct and honest songwriting, musical craftsmanship and powerful performances that stretches from the ‘60s vanguard led by The Beatles through such boomer heroes as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and the Eagles right up to The National, Wilco and other modern acts who value the art of the hook. And as much as dad rock may be about respecting the past, cherished bands like My Morning Jacket and Tame Impala push the old ways into the future by adding new flair and bold embellishments to the fundamentals that dads dearly appreciate.
