Rock is dead.
I used to like listening to a lot of rock music in the 90's (along with hip-hop and many other genres as well). But since 2000 up til now, with the invention of Myspace, the dramatic change away from music on MTV, and an over abundance of cheezy lookalike shit bands...Rock has died.
I think 4 white dudes with the same 4 instruments (guitar, bass, drums, vox) just got old and unimaginative and the new generation got sick of it.
But lately, there is some decent new stuff coming out. I think finally those experimental bands that combine rock, hip hop, electric, punk, dance and so on are finally starting to find their groove.
OMG, no it's not dead, you just have to search more for an underground bands

Rock isn't dead, it's just that the mainstream/horrible music dominated the popular music of this generation. Which truely sucks...there are still plenty of rock bands, you just have to look harder now!
Was up everybody
Rock may not be popular in top 40s, but I think it is still quite a significant aspect to the music industry.
I just saw Phish a couple weeks ago.. It was a welcome return to the organic sound/feel of what I remember Rock sounding/feeling like.
as far as charts are concerned yes otherwise hell no!
