When did we fall back into the 1960s?

I was listening to the local alternative rock station a couple days ago and realized that there is a pretty strong trend to a sort of neo-folk music.

It's ballads, story songs, a particularly mushy kind of love song ... there's political overtones in a lot of it, and religious content ... but then I just saw a Pearl Jam concert (I'm working from home and Palladia was on) and near the end, Eddie V performed an anti-Bush anti-War piece (NOT the one that got censored) that was a pure Dylanesque folk protest song.


So. Welcome to 1960. I feel like a kid again, only older.
