Rock And Roll Is DEAD!!

Post by matt1 » Sun Sep 01, 2019 7:32 pm

Back in September of 1995, singer Lenny Kravitz sang "Rock And Roll Is Dead" (from "Circus", later on "Greatest Hits"). KISS member Gene Simmons said in April of 2016 said that "Rock And Roll" is over & done in a "TMZ" interview. I believe Gene!! Country, Pop & Rap are taking over since.

Uh yeah, this has only been happening pretty much since Kurt Cobain shot himself and grunge flamed out.

Not really. That's pop music, pop has been around longer than Rock.
Rock is still around, but commercial radio doesn't embrace much of it, because the most interesting stuff is being done by independent artists. The incestuous relationship between the 4 labels and the 3 radio groups has not produced much lately, but if you search on Spotify you will find some amazing rock in almost any sub-genre you could imagine.
