It used to be huge because Hot Topic sold all the bands cds and shirts.
I went into a hot topic last year looking for The Ghost Inside cd and they had maybe 10 metal cds and maybe 10 metal shirts. Most it is now rap and pop. So kids listen to that.
It's not in the same spotlight because the market became oversaturated with it, causing people to lose interest.
