I feel that Xtina, Britney etc. killed grunge and forced alt music back into the fringes from mainstream in the late 90s and made top 40 music decline in quality and originality because everyone/everything became slick, overproduced, anodyne pop with an image to match. Ok, off my soapbox now...
I do agree that that type of music killed alt/grunge but In a way I am glad it did. The bands I loved in the 90's tried to change their sound so much in the late 90's early 2000's and became unrecognizable for me. Now that they are making music again, it's much better because they don't have to try and sound a certain way for radio.

Now, that I'm an old man, I don't listen to Pop radio ay all. My XM presets are Underground Garage, XMU, Alt Nation, Octane, BPM and Lithium.
