Welcome, rocker nation, to the newest episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.

This week, we’re back at our home base at JBTV studios in downtown Chicago, joined by a panel that includes comedian Martin Morrow, Consequence of Sound Publisher Alex Young, and Red Eye music reporter Josh Terry. They debate whether or not 2015 is one of the more unoriginal years when it comes to pop culture, due to the numerous remakes, sequels, and spin-offs that are dominating movies and television. They also discuss the lineups for Lollapalooza and Osheaga, and the significance of Radiohead’s OK Computer being put into the Library of Congress.

We’ve also hit the streets of Chicago with comedian Kevin Kellam to gauge the public’s reaction to Lollapalooza, and we bring you a preview of our SXSW interview with comedians Ari Shaffir and Big Jay Oakerson.
