Electric Experimentation
70's New Wave music used synthesizers & electric productions to go along with their complex music and lyrics. There was studio editing, over dubbing, and echos. The The New Wave band Devo was ahead of it's time, and the use of electronic noise was a new concept in the music industry.
Twenty One Pilots use a variety of electric sounds with synthesizers. The electric sound being used is now expected in modern popular music. There are more options for synthesizers due to the advancements in technology.
Also notice the similarities in body language and facial expressions, shaking, movements, etc.

60's Acid Rock lyrics regarded striving for freedom and the acceptance of unconventional ideas.
60's Folk music dealt with heavy topics and social concerns.
70's Punk Rock music was based on anarchy, the rejection of authority.
Twenty One Pilots songs are about life and views on how to live it. They discuss the problems facing society such as self discovery, dealing with personal emotions, and suicide.

Artist Comparisons

Twenty One Pilots
High Energy performances
Similar to the 50's Rock N Roll performer Little Richard, Twenty One Pilots are full of energy and crowd interaction. 70's Hard Rock/Heavy Metal performers are known for their crazy stage effects, aggressiveness, and fast paced shows which involve loud, harsh, and sometimes angry shouting. In multiple songs by Twenty One Pilots lead singer Tyler Joseph can be heard yelling the lyrics during certain parts of his songs, as well as singing and rapping. During their concerts they use a variety of lighting and other visual effects to accompany their music (see video links below.)
Twenty One Pilot's hit single House Of Gold
50's Rock N Roll Elvis Presley- Suit & tie, gelled hair.
60's Brit. Invasion Rolling Stones- Everyday street clothing.
70's Glam Rock David Bowie- Unconventional, obscure clothing, hair, and makeup.
2014 Twenty One Pilots- Typical everyday clothing with mismatching patterns and strange accessories (masks, sunglasses, etc.)

Car Radio
"I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
I ponder of something terrifying
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it's that we're all battling fear
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound
There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There's faith and there's sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think..."

(^ 1:14 Josh Concert Interview)
Both 70's Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Artists and Twenty One Pilots have the same perspective on the negative effects given when a performer at a concert does not engage their audience on a personal level. Given this prior knowledge and first hand experience, both artists use this as motivation to change these tendencies and create an atmosphere full of energy at their own concerts.
