Today, we convened a Q debate to ask: Is rock dead?.
New statistics reveal that only three of the 100 highest-selling tracks of 2010 can be classified as rock. It's led to foghorn-like proclamations that rock has left the building, just like jazz did in the 1950s. Although the popularity of urban music has sky-rocketed over the past 12 months, rock has fared better on the album charts, and live rock acts are still doing well.
So -- Is rock dead? The Telegraph's music correspondent Neil McCormick joined us to argue the affirmative, plus, on the alive and thriving side, associate editor of NME Paul Stokes.
Take a listen and tell us what you think... is rock dead? Just terminally ill? Or will rock, in fact, never die?
