I've somewhat noticed this. Tnis is not a "KIDS THESE DAYS" rant, in fact? it's actual in support of a lot of younger musicians who are doing their own thing. But it's a bit of an eye opener of the difference in terms of "playlists" I've seen between a "Active Rock/Mainstream Rock" (such as WMMS, WRQK) and a station like the local alternative station out here. I'm a little stunned that the "Active Rock" stations have become the epitome of uncool. It feels like their playlists have yet to change since I was in High School. (reference? 2nd Bush administration). On the flipside? At least it feels like with the alternative station (sans for "Imagine Dragons") that there's some reasons to believe that Rock is evolving and that were some good acts to have even come out the decade before. But is there a reason why the former is just "stale" in terms of sound and quality at the moment?
