Bands market to whoever is listening.
You think Radiohead decided to exclude under 30's?

The lack of politics in music has everything to do with the audience and nothing to do with artists. In recent decades, artists selling a lighter lyrical message have prospered, whereas artists selling a political message have struggled.
I also find it funny that artists such as Radiohead and NIN are being spoken about as radical/political.
