Alright, time for your weekly question. Alright, now this week's question is this. Is rock dead? Now I'm not talking about metal:overseas acts keep it going strong. But how about rock?

Rock last year did not have a good year. Now you could make the argument that not many big artists came out with anything, and while that is true, you have to look at who did. Linkin Park released an album in November, and compared to what it was supposed to do, it did horrendously in sales. The Black Keys didn't sell very well, Kings of Leon did poorly, I could keep going on. The Mumford and Sons album sold around a million copies though. But that's it. That's virtually the only one.

Now my opinion on this is no. See, I believe music works in a cycle. Starting with 1980 here. Metal was getting hot around this time, rock was very prevalent also, rap was extremely underground. Then, in the 90's, metal lost its top spot to rock. Metal was still very popular thanks to acts like Pantera, but it wasnt #1. Rap was also becoming less underground. Then in the late 90's, early 00's, rap/pop takes over, rock becomes 2nd, metal becomes more underground, techno starts getting a little heat. Then, we have another change, which is where we are now. Rap and pop split. Pop becomes #1, rap#2, and then the biggie, which I'll get too in aminute, techno #3, rock is less mainstream, metal is getting a lot of attention and a solid fanbase, but its not mainstream...yet.

Alright, now I believe we are about to make another transition here. I think techno is going to replace pop, because, lets face it, pop is starting to sounnd like techno thanks to act like Kesha. Then, I think when that phase is over, metal takes back #1, rock comes back, and the cycle starts over. So no, I dont think rock is dead.

Music is just like candy, you throw away the rappers.

I once told a girl I loved her more than music. I lied.

For pop, we still have Michael Jackson obviously.

And I'm not sure about rock.

I listen ti Linkn Park alot. I guess cause some of their song are like 4 years old they arent played as much, but still if you listen to a counsler at my camp he carries around a speaker all day which is blasting rock music so i guess rock isnt dead.

Caseroos, Linkin Park is still pretty popular. Their newest album didn't sell well because it sucked. They still get alot of radio play.

Xaria, more will come out, but eventually they'll run out of it. You can't get more songs from a dead man, now can you?

He recorded tons of music, his voise is the same, and I'm listening to Monster with 50 Cent. And you can't, unless he has unreleased material.

FINALLY. A WEEKLY COMMUNITY QUESTION I ACTUALLY GET.

As for this, no, I believe rock is not dead, per se. It has simply become less popular for a while, but like you said, it is also on the brink of re-discovery.

@Sis: That's already dead. A pity, isn't it? D:

ROCK. ISN'T. DEAD. In order to keep it thriving, maybe those of us who are musicians of some sort should bring it up to the top again! All you hear nowadays is Autotuned voices and people talking with music in the background! We can change that, though. The rock bands are starting to get old, and we need some new ones. Then there are the ones that are turning into Pop (such as Linkin Park ><") due to their record company. So we DEFINITELY need more indie bands out there.

Y'know Metalman, I think rock really is dead. Notice how almost every music subject I talk about is old rock music. They have really ruined rock, I mean seriously. I know people who are more talented than linkin park in one building. Plus their turning techno too, I mean did you hear the catalyst , Rock without a question is dead and thats why I dwell on the past

Chris, I don't think it's fair to say Linkin Park isn't talented. I don't like what they're doing musically, but theres no doubt that they know what they're doing.

technically I never said they were not talented, I said I knew people more talented then them. But Linkin Park stretches to too many genres so they really can't defend rock. Their like the madonna of rock eew. Well since who else is a rock artist.
