    There isn't really such a thing as mainstream rock after like 2007ish. Like you say, theres acts like Coldplay, but theres no pretence of them being rock at this point.

    Bands that started before that point still have big live followings, but don't sell records.

    So rock music isnt the dominant radio station tune so that means its dead? jazz must be dead too.

    Well we could argue over semantics or philosophy of art instead, but the fact is its not important to pop culture like it once was. You probably understand what I'm saying and are just being obtuse because you like arguing.

    There are still good jazz acts, and there are probably a few new good rock bands about, which is nice on an individual level, but meaningless in terms of the direction of popular music.

    That's a completely different discussion from "rock is dead" then.

    "Rock n Roll" probably hasn't been the dominant force in popular music since the late 1970s and arguably was at its peak from the mid 1950s to the late 1960s

    Nah its dead, it legit sucks now. Rock acts were still hugely popular through the 80s and 90s. Something happened. I would say its a combination of different things but I'm interested what you and others think.

    the latter was a good spirited response song (kravitz & prince were friends) and is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, nice funk touches in there esp in the second half. I also love the guitar part from 04:05 onward. this song dates back to a long period I was heavily involved in Prince music, buying tons of bootlegs too and seeing a concert once in a while.

    I don't follow rock music t6o closely and this may be a small aspect. I have noticed, that most vocal leads now a days seem be actual good singers and all sound similar. It seems like in the past the front man was more about being an entertainer and having a sound unique to them.

    ^ Yeah they were superstars.

    I think another thing is electronic music was able to innovate and change faster. Its not like rock music can't come back to the mainstream but it has to be something that doesn't sound old or like pop.

    In recent years I really love Temples who are prog/psych and Paris, Texas who are probably the best rap/rock group I've heard.

    Any other new rock groups that are good?
