I'd like to add that good mainstream rock died in the 80s. That's the reason why I don't listen to modern rock bands. I love listening to modern musicians of some other genres except rock.

Sorry but I don't think Nirvana and Grateful Dead could be considered as classic rock at all.

According to Wikipedia, they are still around. I guess they were kind of flash in the pan for the US market. A CD was just released in Australia in August you can probably buy the import online somewhere.

I would recommend that anyone who thinks that there isn't any good music out there to check out things like:

Last.fm - Listen to free music with internet radio and the largest music catalogue online
Pandora Radio - Listen to Free Internet Radio, Find New Music
Live365 Internet Radio - Thousands of Free Online Radio Stations

and just do searches on Google or YouTube for music videos. I think you will find some stuff you like.

I agree with FlaGrrrl about Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown!
The whole album is yearning, desperate, brilliant--there are echoes of early Springsteen, but they tell their own story.
I always liked Green Day, but I *love* their political consciousness--and their songs' wicked hooks. When everyone else but Neil Young was dithering, they were writing American Idiot. This video is some of 21st Century live.

YouTube - Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown [Live @ Fox Theater, Oakland 2009]
How about My Morning Jacket? They have that southern feel, and they experiment.

I agree about Jack White and his various incarnations. His "Dead Weather" band is not my favorite, but I admire the fact that he tries new things instead of sticking with the same old formula.
I don't know how mainstream it is, but I do like this song from the Horehound album, with Jack on drums:

YouTube - The Dead Weather - Hang You From the Heavens

the term classic rock is overused to begin with, but both are great in their own ways.

I'd say for sure Nirvana has nothing to do with classic rock.

Just happened upon this thread and I enjoyed the discussion. So my question is; why don't we see great rock music anymore? I can't believe there isn't an audience for it. Having grown up in the late 60s-70s, every week it seemed someone was released a great album. We were surrounded by incredible music and just assumed it would continue, and get better. Heck, even the classic rock bands still playing, aren't producing much. I've never gotten a satisfactory answer. Would appreciate thoughts.
