Re: Can Mainstream Rock Music Survive

I recognize about half those names. Still it doesn't define what "mainstream rock" is.
It's whatever happens to be popular at the time I suppose. Nobody would have called Nirvana or Pearl Jam mainstream rock when they first appeared, but after selling 50 squillion albums, how can they be anything else?

Rock and heavy guitar music in general needs another shot in the arm like Grunge/90s alt rock gave it. It will survive, but it won't be a major mainstream force until that happens.
