    From what I have seen every time times get hard or we go to war Rock music gets more popular.
    Do you think rock music will ever dye off? I personally think it will live on forever, but they will rename it so that it seems new. Call it prog or progressive rock. Here are a few samples of newer rock. These groups are pretty popular and made up of mainly millennials who just started out in the last 10 years. The last group I posted Porcupine Tree is already gone, but are now even more popular now than ever. Some of this stuff seems like it could have been written in the early 1970's.

    I think the final scene from Christine says it all:

    Its as dead as it will get. No form of music ever totally goes away. There are still bands making 80s hair metal, still bands making disco, still bands making 50s doowop. Just have to search it out.

    But if the question is, will rock music ever be dominant again, then the answer is no

    Yes. Rock will become viewed more like jazz and actually I agree with you that it’s “bottomed out” in a sense.

    It's the last "pure" genre. I love that there were talented musicians and not computers. Music SUCKS these days!

    Just wanted to mention I also love classical music and one of my favorite composers is Frederic Chopin. The way some progressive rock bands copy his nocturnes is compelling. Very sad moody sounding music made over a century apart, one with piano and one with an electric guitar. Not to be compared, both are pretty in their own right. Listen to the last 2 minutes of the PT song to understand.
