no.

its not what it once was in regard to selling out stadiums (unless you're an older band) and rock radio stations have faded quite a bit, yes. but the music is there. you just have to go look for it now.

I had honestly forgot I created this thread, so I appreciate you guys keeping it alive. I'm going to keep pimping Shinedown if you don't mind. I love these guys. . Give it a listen.

PIMP AWAY!!!!!!!!!

My favorite band for at least the last 10 years. I've seen them many times and already have at least 2 more lined up before the summer is over.

Planet Zero is pure genius.

Always looking for good music.
Just watched the video on you tube of planet zero. I like it.

I am typical a classic rock type person, but always looking for something new I missed out on.

thanks. :thumbup:

No. It has evolved through the years, but there are still plenty of rock bands out there. I heard multiple good rock albums in 2022 -

Ants From Up There by Black Country, New Road.

Hellfire by Black MIDI.

God’s Country by Chat Pile

Cave World by Viagra Boys

Those were really good and interesting rock albums from 2022 (God’s Country is more metal).

Rock is arguably less innovative than it was years ago. That innovative spirit has moved into other genres - there are a lot of hip hop and electronic artists that are putting out new, fresh ideas and sounds in the underground music world.
Amen to this. There's terrific music all over. The best rock music now incorporates ideas from other genres, so no, it doesn't sound exactly like your classic rock station. BCNR, Black Midi, Protomartyr, Hop Along, Porridge Radio, Kurt Vile, Big Thief, that's just bands I've seen recently: all doing different things but the core is rock 'n' roll.
