Default Funk Off: It's Funk Rock Week!

The 1990s were known for acts such as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against the Machine. After over a period of time where the genre had died down in popularity, Audioslave revived the genre with the release of their 2006 album Revelations.

pretty sad when Audioslave is the band that revives a scene.
