    Rock has become irrelevant, any popular "rock" music is basically pop these days. Most would be rock fans have realized that the real talent base in musicians is in metal. Most rock is just catchy pop riffs/chords played on actual instruments. It is watered down for the masses and so people can hum and sing along.

    Is there anything inherently wrong with this? No, but most music fans realize what the industry is doing and it is not palatable to them. So they are forced to live in the past or accept the new wave of music.

    While I am no where near a fan of the music there are no more Zepplins, AC/DC's, or Beattles left in the world. There are only Beiber's, Kanye's, and Lil Waynes along with some actually talented musicians who will never be heard by the masses because they are too stupid to listen.

    I feel like you are one of them that is too stupid to listen.

    100% correct. Innovative music just doesn't get pushed. Hasn't since the 90s

    Kanye is completely inovative.

    Not sure you know what you're talking about. He revolutionized Hip-Hop production on multiple occasions.

    Don't you dare interrupt my old guy "music was way better in my day argument!"

    Tell me about rock, even most rap that is pushed is not innovative. Commercial music is commercial for a reason, it sells. And the masses prefer dumbed down basic ********. I mostly listen to the hard rock/ metal genre, and even that market is a joke.

    Not all commercial music is like that.

    Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West are three modern artists that are extremely popular and have really unique music.

    Well, the beatles were the beatles. That is a poor example because we'd never seen musicians influence pop culture on the scale they did, and probably won't again in our lifetimes. Zeppelin I would compare to a band like Muse or Radiohead these days, someone who is respected for creativity and musicianship. ACDC was a generic fun rock band with average lead guitar playing and some really catchy songs. I wouldn't put them on any kind pedestal though. There are plenty of bands these days that make ACDC look like a bunch of chumps. Just because you aren't hearing them on clear channel radio stations doesn't mean they are successful or unknown. You know, like the internet and stuff.

    so many good rock bands out right now. the only difference is that you have to dig and look for them. they aren't going to be spoon fed to you through top 40 radio, or rolling stone magazine like they use to be. big money isn't behind the greatest rock and roll bands of this era, but they are still there.

    Yeah, and it's not like the commercial crap hasn't been pushed in the past. It's been pushed for decades. There's plenty of good rock music out there, you just have to get past what's popular.
