Is Music dying?

The mainstream music today is just about alcohol and partying. It doesn't portray emotions, individual ideas, thoughts or sensible experiences and the music is generally auto tuned- talk about originality. Bands like Coldplay who one's were praised by critics for their sensible music and for song like Viva la Vida, are now trying to go mainstream by producing house music.
It's been proved by psychologists that house music to a large extend reduces the intellectual ability of ones mind. Also the Raps which generally involve usage of abusive terms have a negative effect on children.
Obviously most of what is mentioned above is my opinion and I personally like Classical Rock and symphonies. I generally listen to Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Mozart
