For the record, "my music" includes Queen, Rush, Kansas, Styx, Boston, Steely Dan, Van Halen, etc (The environment in the music industry that existed in the 70s that allowed these bands to blossom is long dead. I could hope for its return but I would be delussion to expect it.)

We just gotta live with the fact that there is very little diversity in major label acts today. As far as modern/alternative rock goes, most bands are complete sh*t. Fortunately for us there are some "modern" rock bands which are more classic than modern. Bands like Collective Soul, Goo Goo Dolls, SR-71, Tsar, etc would have made it big both in the 70s and 80s.

I can not speak for everyone else but the bands we are mentioning here are the exception and not the rule in the modern/alternative genre. These "diamond in the ruff" bands deserve our support (or at least our attention), in spite of the crowd they get lumped into.

You are right to recognize that these modern bands do not play the 1998 version of melodic rock. But you are wrong to think that "we" all come here to relive 1988.
