RE: What killed Rock-n-Roll?
I'm surprised that (unless I've missed it) no one has yet mentioned the true answer to the question:

The Moog analog synthesizer.

Yes, it was adopted by some classic rock and roll bands as the 60's faded, and it did take a while, but I firmly believe that this was the begining of the end. And this, from a huge 70's progressive rock fan.

Out of three groups mentioned, only REM was unique. Nirvana will only be remembered because Cobain killed himself, and the Black Crowes were just a talented rip-off of late 60's-early 70's british blues based rock- no originality whatsoever.

It is a good thing, but essentially, Rock is not on the radio or TV because many people don't care about it anymore.

It's been done and few give a shit.





Well I give a shit...

SO FUCK YOU!

Are you in fucking high school?

Metal and hardcore punk amount for shit.

Music being more widespread. Piracy is so easy, people have no incentive to find the best for their money cause no money is being spent. Music streaming services show only ads of popular music (mainstream pop). Listening is easy with youtube and the like.

Noisier environments, with malls playing only pop at loud, unbearable volumes.

A redefinition of rock, with songs like

and

making people say 'oh, I listen to rock too, like (insert poppy song with words rock in title)'.

Music being more about idolizing the performers, such as referring to them by their first names or talking about their life or something.

Thats just my theory though.

This has always been the case.

Mainstream pop has always been part of the public's musical appetite the most, though.
