Hmm, I dunno. I feel like "oldies" well always refer to a certain time frame, just as '70s era will always be considered classic rock. I can't see, say, Nickelback becoming "classic rock" by 2030 or anything.

Yeah, music sounds too shit in general to be considered classic at any point in time.

If oldies now is stuff that was around in the 40's and 50's, then oldies in 20 years will be stuff like Pink Floyd and Led Zep.

Oldies is '50s and '60s, sometimes '70s now. But Floyd and Zeppelin are both considered classic rock. There's a little bit of overlap, but generally it's bands with a lot of hits. Floyd and Zeppelin were both huge, but they didn't exactly have many hit songs.

the classic rock station i listen to has started to play early 90s stuff like RHCP, nirvana, pearl jam so i'm guessing that commercially successful bands will become the oldies of tomorrow stuff like the foo fighters and the white stripes

In a perfect world, Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes, and MGMT.

Alas, this is not a perfect world.

EDIT: Gorillaz probably will be, that's a huge plus on the future.

It'll be pretty similar. I imagine there will be Cyndi Laupers (Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, etc.), there will be Talking Heads (Phoenix, MGMT, etc.), and tons of other things like that.

The big thing is that 20 years from now, our kids (well maybe not OUR kids) will be complaining about how the only good music was from the 2000's and the 2010's. Its just a big stupid cycle really.

This. What's considered "good" is often defined by what a kids parents tell them. Which is why folks have the classic rock phase where they can't listen to anything "after 1990 because it all sucks."

If I ever have kids I'm going to raise them on equal parts weird, obscure stuff and equal parts really mainstream music. Then at about age 10 I'll leave them to their own device, and not criticize their tastes at all. It'll be interesting to see what they end up listening to. (Though for a while it will likely be whatever their peers are listening to.)

i think the modern metal and hardcore will be like new wave music from the 80s. some people still like it a lot, but most remember it because of the silly fads and such

Coheed and Cambria have the staying power of Rush, I can feel it. I also don't think metal will go in the more BrOOtalZ direction, I think it will soften up a bit. No reason to think this, it's just a guess.

That's what I love about the 2000s. It's showing that the general populace isn't as easily offended and mortified at "vulgar" terminology and subject matter, however blatant and exaggerated it may be at times.

Except for the few traditionalist classic rock nazis, which I discussed earlier (Don't get me wrong, I love classic rock. It's the common mindset of it that gets to me, though.)

Circa Survive is gonna be old prog.

I think bands that no one really considers punk will be punk. Like Rancid.

Surprised Green Day haven't been mentioned...

I honestly think a lot of music from this generation will be forgotten. In 20 years people will still be listening to Queen, The Beatles, Pink Floyd etc.

However I can see some artists lasting the test of time, namely Lady Gaga, Green Day, Emimen, Foo Fighters etc.
