In art, as in life, you can keep on doing the same thing over and over, or you can take some advice from the good folks at Virgin Mobile and #retrainyourbrain. The best musicians have always done the latter, and when it comes to rock ‘n’ roll, bucking convention often means trading guitars for keyboards and delving into electronic music. The creative risk takers on this, our list of 5 Rock Acts that Embraced Electronic Music, deserve props for stepping outside of their six-string safety zones and making music rooted in circuits and microchips. They retrained their brains, and regardless of album sales or critical opinions, the world’s better for it.
