I heard on the radio today that rock is dead. How can this be? Apparently rock has had it’s worst showing in the singles chart in 50 years! The consensus is there is no rock band strong enough at the moment to dominate the singles charts. Pop music is firmly in charge. But if you look at this way, if a rock single is dominating the charts, then by definition it ceases to be rock and becomes popular music.
Anyway, in my book, rock will never be dead.
