    friend of mine told me he thinks the track is weak, and that I'm going all in on "dad rock". I googled dad rock, and this is what came up, I shit you not:

    Check out that list of albums though, I would say I’m a huge dad rock fan

    it's funny to me that pearl jam is in that list consisting of largely 70's rock icons. I have nearly zero of those albums.

    Weren't the Home and Away Show ballcaps described as dad hats or something similar? These guys have definitely become dad rock.

    i'm not disputing that, however, what I found odd was the company they were put into. I'd argue those other bands are granddad rock. Dad rock would be classified by age, would it not? because PJ share virtually no similarities to those bands.

    The dad part seems fitting. Rock, on the other hand, might be a misnomer.

    it is a Darius Rucker special.  Nothing compelling at all about this track.

    Any band really that's over 40 is going to be considered dad rock. Even Metallica or Nirvana. To me "dad rock" is more Goo Goo Dolls or Train types. Yes PJ has some songs that can be considered that. But as a whole I don't see it

    Would be cool if the song he was doing with Elton was also on this album. Don't think that sort of stuff  happens anymore

    So is Long Way not a single, but just a track from the upcoming album? The way it is worded from the band seems to suggest that this is just a song he put out, but the actual single is coming soon....
    "Eddie Vedder has released a brand new solo-track “Long Way” from his forthcoming album Earthling...

    A limited-edition 7-inch vinyl which features "Long Way" & the soon-to-be released single, "The Haves", is available for pre-order in the shop."

    it is interesting wording, for sure. that kind of grabbed me as well. but with everything 10C/the band puts out in their wording, more often than not the dissection leads to nothing. 
    I just noticed they worded it the other way on IG. calling Long Way the single and The Haves a song. Weird.

    words seem so out of place.

    yeah, I agree, I wasn't really sure what dad rock meant, which is why I googled it. made me chuckle that a picture of Ed came up first.

    I don't know if the same people will play on all the tracks. But if they do you can consider this a supergroup even though it's a solo album. Unless this song is the outlier

    Yeah I think the more a word or term gets used the less specific it’s definition becomes. I always considered dad rock to be like another term for adult contemporary.  If it’s just bands that started 30+ years ago where do you draw the line? Are the Sex Pistols and Sonic Youth dad rock?

    My 19 year old niece would think so since her dad listened to those bands :)

    I pretty much assumed all or most rock these day's is Dad rock.   The young folk are much less likely to listen to rock these days.    It's not that popular a genre amongst younger age groups.  Ergo the majority of people that listen to rock are older, and in the dad/grandpa age bracket.

    Thus most rock is now dad rock, regardless of how heavy or mellow it is.  Metallica is dad metal :)

    Give it a few years or so and there will be a bunch of people in nursing homes blasting out Kill Em All from their rooms.

    Pretty much anything NOT played on a pop station or in a teens rotation is Dad rock.  64-84 Rolling Stones rocked.  Anything after that was Dad Rock.

    Today?  It's all Dad Rock...
