Default Rock Music is Completely Dead

Look at the billboard music award nominees and winners from last night.

Some "Lorde" bitch won "Best Rock Song" for a song called "Royals."

Some "Imagine Dragons" pop group won top rock group and top rock album.

Some other pop artists (who resemble rock music in no way, shape, or form) who were nominated for rock music awardswere people like "Lana Del Rey," and "Capital Cities." Not a single group up there who actually resembles rock music aside from "Fall Out Boy" who once was in the Rock genre but now has converted completely over to Pop music to stay relevant.

It's a damn shame.

I'd say the last big splash rock music had was when Green Day released American Idiot and My Chemical Romance followed that up with The Black Parade a year or two later.

Both albums received a ton of air play and got them a ton of TV time as well, in addition to both albums selling a shit load.

And this thread also isn't gonna be about "my rock is better than your rock" either. I love all types of rock music without the concern of what sub genre they happen to fall under.

For newer bands?

MGMT's last 2 albums have been pretty good. If you are more of a pop listener to get involved with them I'd listen to their debut album first though.

Sure, pop rock, emo rock and radio soft bullshit rock is dead, but hard rock and metal is going strong.

This is very true.

It's been mostly dead in the sales/pop culture mainstream since 95-96. The exception being concert sales; rock music still dominates because hip hop and other modern pop doesn't translate very well to the stage.

here comes the sub genre warrior

I'm sure there are SOME good bands out there in EVERY genre.

The problem is the mainstream media isn't recognizing them at all so most of them will die off to go find other ways to make money.

And all the lack of REAL rock music representation in the media does is inspire less and less kids to get involved in and make rock music.

MGMT is a rare exception because the two original members did an assload of drugs in college and wrote like 3-4 pop songs that caused them to blow up.

But look at their 2nd album. BY FAR better than the first and debuted at #2 on the music charts and then instantly plummeted as soon as people realized it was a REAL rock album.

Metal will die off? You realize how dumb that sounds. Metal has been a prominent genre since the 70s and is still going strong. Metal is not meant to be a pop genre that plays on pop radio stations. It thrives off being out of the ordinary, and has for around forty years. I'm not a sub genre warrior. I included hard rock because it IS going strong, and tried my best to describe the genres of rock that have died off a bit without giving exact definitions of those genres. Metal is by no mean a sub-genre, it is its own genre with many, many different rich sub-genres. I'll just assume that you thought metal was merely a rock sub-genre.

Sorry, we both kind of jumped to conclusions and assumptions a bit there. You said sub-genres will die off and called me a sub-genre warrior, and I assumed that you thought metal was somehow a sub-genre, since I had included metal as one of the genres that was "going strong."
