    The last hard rock band I reckon was in the late eighties with Guns And Roses ( maybe early nineties with grunge band Nirvana).
    Of course in the seventies there’s loads of bands.

    So nothing in the past 30 years.

    Queens of the Stone Age? Black Keys? White Stripes? Ghost?
    Any of these bands ring a bell at all?

    In the Top 40? Sure.

    In reality? No.

    It's no longer the dominant genre that it was back in the 60s and 70s, but it endures nonetheless.

    Focusing on chart music is the OP's problem

    The 70s ain't coming back, if tbat's what you mean.

    Not dead but as a cultural force, severely weakened and on life support.

    Dude, no offense, and I'm saying this with peace and love, but you are a total poser.

    There are hundreds, maybe thousands of rock bands out there. Today.

    If the last one you heard was Guns and Roses in 1989, you have been living in a cave.

    So nothing in the past 30 years.

    How could you forget the highly influential Emo movement?

    Never liked Guns & Roses. If that's the sort of thing that's dead, then whoop-de-do.
    Plenty of great other guitar bands from that era though.
    I have to dig around for stuff I like these days, just like I had to back then.
