Everyone knows hard rock/metal took a plunge when grunge hit in the..
90's.With new stuff from motley crue,extreme,def leppard,dokken,etc
Can hard rock make a comeback?

Only popular form of metal now.
Will rock radio even give these older groups any airplay?

That "new" stuff would have to be "good" stuff. Therein lies the problem.

If you talk music rather than marketing most Grunge was hard rock.

I remember once playing "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain for my daughter as an example of early heavy metal. She said it wasn't heavy metal, it was "classic rock"? I was talking music she was talking marketing.

Are you talking about 80s metal like Motley Crue, etc? Or 70s hard rock like Sabbath and Zeppelin? To bring either back in a big way, you need to create the kind of social environment that existed back then, with lots of drug use, promiscious sex, teen rebellion, etc. The music was a reflection of the times and what was going on. It's quite different now. Sure all the hanky panky still goes on but in general we're living in much different times. Those of us who were kids back then have grown up and settled down. We've seen and done it all. Now we have our own families and our kids are teens, but they can't shock us because nothing's shocking anymore. We're desensitized and maybe a little jaded and today's music is a reflection of that.

Also, I think grunge was bad for rock. Partying was replaced by angst and nihilism and IMO it drained the fun out of it.

Heavy metal and hard rock are not the same thing. Heavy metal is gone. Let's let it stay gone. Please. That much hairspray in use again can't be good for the environment.

Hard rock is still alive and well.

But to answer the original question:
