    They're tolerated more by the mainstream, but I wouldn't say they're dead. 

    I must say though, there is a growing problem with political correctness leeching it's way into rock and metal.

    No it's still going strong. And it's never been mainstream, if it was I would never have gotten into it. There have been a few bands that made it onto the proverbial mainstream charts here and there over the years.  Guns n Roses and Iron Maiden (for the metal) and Poison, BonJovi, Alice Cooper (rock) and occasionally some goth bands, The mission, Joy division the cure or the cult etc for example

    LOL...of course not.  It's alive and well, just not mainstream.

    Not even close, kid.  It might not be hitting on the pop charts these days, but it's alive and well and never gonna die.

    True, kiddie-pop and rap have dominated the hit charts for decades.  But tell me this:  How many groupies are Nsync and the Backstreet Boyz still nailing today?  How many times have Ice Cube or Grandmaster Flash been played to get the crowd amped up at a Stanley Cup or World Series playoff game?  How many times have Vanilla Ice or Kool And The Gang announced a reunion tour and made headlines?

    Now ask those same questions about Kiss, Iron Maiden, Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Judas Priest, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, Metallica or Motley Crue.  

    The defence rests, your honour.  Case closed.

      Actually I bet if kool and the gang announced a reunion tour it would do pretty good business

    Jazz was the popular music style between the wars, but never regained its footing after WW2. However it certainly isn't dead, many of the most innovative things ever done in jazz were post-WW2. If anything it's enjoying a bit of renaissance at the moment.

    So rock and metal might not be dominant like it was in the 70s-90s but it will probably never die out. People not only still sing plainsong - which is more than a thousand years old - but some of it is still HUGELY influential. One of them - the Dies Irae (which means 'day of wrath') - is used *everywhere*. There's a video about it here
