Someone else on the Forum (was it you, Ted?) made the point that much of modern white rock/pop is the product of music that only feeds on itself. I think that is the crux of the matter and as long as that remains the case then it's only a matter of time before rawwrk and all who sail in it becomes culturally non-existent and merely a vehicle for relieving naive middle-class white teenagers of their disposable income.
