    This fucking guy has made a video about how every single genre of music is dying. According to him all music is dead.

    If you want to save 16 minutes of a cunt in a hat, Lifespan & Over-saturation.

    I think he has valid points!!!
    Did you guys even WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO or did you just decide because he has a hat, it's not worth listening to? I'm sure you have had a hat on your heads at one point or another as well.

    How is metal/rock gonna be in 20-30 years from now?

    Most people only care about the old guys like Iron Maiden, Slayer, Metallica, etc.

    Most classic bands will be gone in 5 years, max 10.

    What current bands will be the "legends" in the future?

    GRETA VAN FLEET? GHOST?

    I watched the whole video, I was mainly reacting to his over-inflammatory delivery (kind of Glenn Frickery) and click-bait title. And because he comes across as a cunt. In a hat.

    I don't believe rock is dying, it just that it's measurables are changing. We've gone from a model of a small number of bands capturing the majority of sales via gatekeepers (Record labels/Rock press), through the relative 'death' of the industry, to a very plural, over-saturated model served online. I think we're potentially even seeing a slight return in the function of the record label, I know that medium sized niche bands like Black Dahlia Murder are starting to see streaming income flip into sustainability with good governance on the label's behalf.

    So, the question is will the model of 'legends' be sustainable or even desirable in the future? Or will the way that fans consume artists output (musically and visually) remain a smaller scale, more plural model? Will 100,000 fan attended events based solely on musical acts be viable? You could say that Promoters have been paving the way for making their events more 'experiential' for at least the last decade. You could also point to the rise of many smaller, niche events as moving us towards a future model.

    None of this equates to rock dying, rather re-defining itself to suit it's consumer base.
