Bands flying rock's banner still exist, of course, with 2000s era groups like The Black Keys and The Killers announcing new music after years of silence.But not one rock group occupied a spot in the top 10 of 2018's most-streamed acts, according to Nielsen Music, with nine hip hop and R&B performers along with pop megastar Ariana Grande leading the pack.The influential festival scene has begun relegating rock to lesser stages in favor of headlining pop, rap and electro acts: 2018 was the first year Coachella's lineup dropped rock groups from the main attractions, with the leading festival following suit for 2019's edition set to kick off this weekend.Jacqueline Warwick, a music scholar at Canada's Dalhousie University, said that while rock used to be seen as the genre for "serious" artists, styles like hip hop and even pop are beginning to claim their due.Indeed, even a number of hip hop artists say it's the "spirit" of rock that will live forever.
