Over the last couple of years/decades, people have been growing away from rock music and more into other music genres like hip-hop, rap, and pop music. But there has still been some question as to if rock music is dying or if it's staying the same, and people still love it. The fact of the matter is that it is dying and newer generations have stopped listening to it.
Many people from older generations got huge into rock. I mean it was like the music that everyone listened to. But as time went on a lot of their kids stopped listening to rock music or never did. Not saying different music is bad and that everyone should listen to rock. But it certainly has become less popular over the last few decades. A lot of parents have even grown away, trying to expand into other genres of music, some even the ones their kids listen to. Especially now since radio listening has declined a lot over the last decade, most people choose what type of music they like. Verses on the radio if a rock station is the only thing you can get, most people would just listen to that. But it is still a matter of choice. A lot of parents don't want their kids to listen to rock music because it can promote violence and drugs.
Apparently, the decline of rock music has been due to today's generation listening to other types of music. They say that most teenagers listen to genres such as pop and hip-hop. Thankfully they say rock is still popular among teenagers and young adults. They also say that rock music is still the most popular genre to listen to... that is for adults over the age of 30 though.
The plus side to it is the concerts that newer generations have been going to. Now we have a lot of concerts coming to big cities and in a study, more people enjoy a rock and roll concert rather than a rap concert. But all of this is opinion based, especially when rap and hip-hop are the highest-selling concert ticket sales in the U.S.
Either way, whatever people decide to listen to, they say rock music isn't going to die or never will die. It may become less popular over time, but the likelihood of people that will stop listening to it is a very low chance. Listen to whatever music you like, but rock and roll is always a good decision.
