    I'm in a 'rock band' and the scene here is dead. I'm tellin' ya.
    On top of that, people don't seem to go out and see music anymore, of any kind. I went to Neumo's last Friday night, here in Seattle, to see a friend do his rap thing, and it was only half full. That's a big name club too. I've played so many gigs where it was full for the opening band, then 10:00 PM rolls around and everyone goes home to relieve the baby sitter. Blah...
    Yeah, I was a little confused if that was a reference to Kurt Cobain or not, lol.

    You said they love rock in Europe, and thats only true depending on were you are. I live in Brussels Belgium and I can tell you me and my best friend are the only people who dont listen to RnB. Im sure that in places like Germany or Scandinavia that are known for their subcultures you could find alot of people into any kind of rock you want; but here? Sure, many people are into the classic stuff but its not the young generation at all.

    It's not endorsed much by the mainstream, but rock music still has loyal fans.

    Oh, I agree; I was just pointing out the local scene. There are active scenes all over the county. Pearl Jam charges $1million for a show, and they tour all of the time.
    Rock's in a fallow period... it will be back!
    Gonna listen to some rock now!

    Depends on the region. IME, where you have rednecks, you have hard rock. This includes the South, the Midwest, and the Rocky Mountain West.

    I'm from the latter of those three, and most people there either listen to hard rock radio*, Top 40, or country. No rap and nothing in Spanish (because of how white my freaking state is), and there wasn't much indie rock until the indie station showed up in 2005 or so. I always listened to hard rock and indie rock, and was disillusioned by the others.

    @Typh0n, where are you from?

    *Loosely defined. They played anything from Nirvana (grunge) to Nickelback (post-grunge) to Metallica (old-school metal) to Tool (new-school metal) to Black Stone Cherry (southern rock).

    What does the term 'dead' actually mean? Demotion from mainstream music? It will continue to influence music in the future, and that is what happens with all genres: they continually warp and change into new forms. Nothing can stay the same forever. Rock can never be dead in this sense, as it is set in history and other types of music will be derived from it, which without rock music it could never exist in the first place.

    @Infinite Bubble What genres in today's mainstream do you see as being influenced by rock?

    I try not to specify on the forum, for privacy's sake. But I'll rep you.

    Pretty much. I see hard rock as being raw, unsophisticated, and rough around the edges -- all qualities that I see as being MUCH more appealing to Americans (esp. rural white Americans) than to Belgians.
