    Is rock dead???

    I've noticed that the singles chart is dominated by pop and RnB. And the album chart is dominated by pop and country music.

    I can't remember any new bands (especially in the US) that has been successful. The only successful rock bands are the old bands from about 10 years ago and earlier. I thought hip hop was in the worse state but Rock is struggling. It seems like the fans have migrated to country music and abandoned rock.

    But they have a healthy live industry so they won't struggle too much.

    We'll not even talk about hard rock and metal, they been dead.

    So, is rock music dead? What happened to it?

    Hmmmm, this section is called Rap & Hip-Hop/R&B. I wonder if there's a reason for that?

    i guess it depends what you think rock is and what you think successful means but i don't think there is a decline at all. same with hard rock/metal, there are still tonnes of bands making a good living doing it

    By rock, I'm assuming you mean any music white people make using a band. Look at their record sales and the successful tours. It's definitely not dead. And in Canada, the charts are dominated by "rock".

    First of all, I post this here because no one goes to the rock section.

    Second of all, I know what rock is. I don't think it's all music white people make using a band. lol

    If you guys know of any successful rock album (in the US) that came out this year, please name them.

    That's what I also tell the mods when they move MY threads which are about Hip-Hop. Only difference is they are not about established artists.

    It's nothing personal, I'm just making a point here.

    Rock is big in europe and south America. Rock doesn't really get to much attention in America anymore. It's mostly about Pop and Contemporary country now.
