Question Why did rock music suddenly disappear from Top 40 radio?

If you went to high school in the '80s, then you know that rock music was everywhere on the radio and MTV. It was without a doubt the most popular genre of music at the time. Foreigner, Journey, Def Leppard, Van Halen, Guns 'n Roses, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Heart were played constantly on Top 40 radio. Then in the late '80s, it disappeared completely and hasn't returned since.

Does anyone know what happened? Why hasn't it ever come back?

Madderest What happened to rock on the radio?

It's because rap and hip-hop got all hip and trendier. It's been that way practically for over the past twenty years.

I call rap and hip-hop sprinkler music.

It's because everything is all pop/hip-hop now.

PSSSSST-ticktickticktick, PSSSSSST-ticktickticktick....

Has anyone noticed that? And the rappers chant over it.

I guess I'm "old school", I like real drums and percussion.
