Name on reason big bands of the 1940 died out?
My late father's cousins were Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey, who were 2 of the most famous bandleaders of the 1940's until they died in 1957 & 58. They died too young. The big bands were popular in the 40's and part of the 50's, until rock n roll overtook swing music. Big bands have never actually died out, in fact they are making a comeback, with young people particularly attracted to this music. Linda Rondstedt, Michael Buble, Sting, and Rod Stewart, are just a few musicians, that have crossed over into this genre.

Music is very much subject to changing fashions. Big bands gave way to crooning and ballads, and then to a whole series of other musical genres. The public enjoys novelty; no single genre of music remains dominant forever, although musical genres also do not tend to be completely forgotten, either, and there are still people who love the big bands and play their recordings.
