    Jesus, I actually started listening to radio again a few weeks ago and realized that the current state of rock/alternative is pretty bad. Do these bands even play instruments anymore? Sounds like this music could double up for play on the local hip hop/R&B station as well.

    On our local rock/alternative station you can tell when a song is from the 90s or early 2000s because the band actually plays instruments... then we get this cvrches, Sir Sly, 21 pilots shit that is all synth.

    Maybe I'm just getting old.

    I'm not trying to say that new music all blows.. I love the Arctic Monkeys and Cage the Elephant and some others.. but again, they actually play instruments.

    Almost every rock band uses drum samples now, even if they have a badass drummer

    Sad

    Well first problem you have is those aren't rock bands. And it seems like all rock stations have converted over to sissy ass pop bands now. There's still plenty of real music being made.

    There are good creative bands still. Royal Blood for example. But 99% are shit, sadly.

    So, can we say that Electric Guitars have been replaced by Electronic Guitars now?
