|The big ones of the rock era would have to be the emergence of Elvis in 1955, the Beatles/British invasion of 1964, the punk movement of 1977, and the grunge/alternative upheaval of 1991. Since then, has there really been a "moment" where there was an across-the-board change in popular music? In my opinion, no. So my question is, will there be another sea change in pop/rock music at any point in the future or has the genre exhausted all of its permutations? Has the lack of a major movement in music been caused by the crippling of major labels and local radio by electronic media? Can that be overcome? Or do you completely disagree with me; are you able to point to something profound that happened between the early '90s and today?
