Sorry if this topic has been discussed before, I searched and couldn't find anything.


Anyways, I was thinking about this on the bus today, I was thinking about how the great bands/musicians of the past all the way from Classical Music to Classic Rock are still remembered today. I was also thinking about all the new bands from the 90's - present day that would possibly be the next great band and I honestly couldn't think of one. I mean there are a lot of good bands that have been around since then but I couldn't honestly think of one that would actually Last.

I thought I would bring this topic to the Pit to see what you guys think of this, Do you agree or disagree?

If you guys disagree then what bands do you think, that became famous AFTER 1993 (around 15 years ago), will Last and will be remembered for decades, centuries or maybe even millenniums from now.

System of a Down, mayhaps? If they get their arses back into the studio?

And maybe....Uh...

...Crap, I really can't think of any outstanding ones.

Maybe Wolfmother, I don't like them that much, but I do think they're skilled. Um Foo Fighters maybe? Dang this is harder than I thought.

That depends, because most people now only consider the bands from the 60's to last forever and won't give newer bands a chance.

Im gonna go with Pearl Jam and A7x. Doesn't matter if you like em or not those kids are popular.

this is easy you guys, i'm not saying i like them but green day will be remembered

No way, I was gonna say System of a Down and Wolfmother, and look at the first two posts. Pearl Jam definitely seems likely. Protest the Hero... as much as I love them, they're not too hugely known right now. Very different music though, I could see it going down in history.
#12
LCD Soundsystem
Neutral Milk Hotel
A Tribe Called Quest
Wu-Tang Clan
Sure, they formed and released albums a little before or after '93, but they'll definetly be remembered.

#13
Pearl Jam and Green Day are before 1993, and I highly doubt SOAD will be remembered. since they've gone on Hiatus people have forgotten about them, everyone used to like SOAD and now most people wouldn't even recognize any of their songs.

I'm thinking realistically about the bands that will be remembered for decades, not so sure about centuries.

Foo Fighters
Smashing Pumpkins (maybe)
RHCP
Radiohead
Weezer (maybe, maybe not)

Radiohead
?

It's hard to say really. I mean music is changing every day and with that more and more bands are pushed out of the spotlight.

EDIT: Wow, that's incredble how alike our two lists were. We should be friends

If we're talking about mainstream bands and such, I really don't know. If we're talking about any genre, and that genre's fan base... That differs a little bit. I can easily see bands like Black Label Society, Behemoth, Dethklok, and other metal acts lasting a long time. Also, Velvet Revolver perhaps? They might "not count" because they were pretty much guaranteed success from the get-go, looking at their band members, but yeah.


He has a point.

In the metal community, there a ****load of bands that'll probly be around for quite a long time.

I was gonna say RHCP, but they've been around a really long time, so I don't think they count lol.

when I say remembered I mean like how Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, and Classical Composers like Mozzart and Beethoven are remembered.

Not small groups of followers like most of the bands you listed will get

hmmmm what about linkin' park
sorry i'm just trying to name random popular artists off
#24
John Mayer, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Muse, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, just to name a few mainstream ones.

There's just as much good music today, it's just not in the mainstream. Check out moe., or Tea Leaf Green, or Pepper. All these bands have dedicated followings that are gonna love them no matter what, you just don't see them on MTV. And there was just as much crappy music back in the day, it's just they don't play it on classic rock radio, due it being, as I said, crappy.

That's the problem though, although there are many great artist out there who don't get all the credit they deserve they won't last and they won't be remembered to the same degree because they aren't mainstream.

Bands like the Sex Pistols or the Clash weren't super-duper popular back in the day, look at them now.

As soon as I posted, I knew I was missing something, so I went back and fixed it.

NEW bands (like, from the 2000s)
Wolfmother
Velvet Revolver (even though the guys in the band are like, in their 40s)
Mobile (even though they've been around since 1995, they've just released their debut album)
Can't think of any more at the moment, it kind of sad

Exactly my point, those guys were legends and I honestly can't see anyone from our generation achieving anything close to what they have.

It's like popular music's become more disposable than before, with the internet and the prevalence of MTV and whatnot. A few years ago, it was all about boy bands and nu-metal. Nowadays, people are embarassed to admit ever liking those kinds of music. I will seriously wager my left nut the same thing happens to metalcore and emo.
#37
System Of A Down
Avenged Sevenfold
KoRn
Paramore
Linkin Park

Lots of nu-metal and modern rock will probably be remembered.

Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Incubus, that's what I can think of right now.

It's also a lot easier for people to remember bands from back then because they didn't have nearly the variety of what we have today, good and bad.

People will always remember SOAD.
Serj Tankian, Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan
may not be household names, but what they have made will
always live on.

Plus, they're on hiatus, which is why they aren't recording.
To quote Daron on their last performance:

"We'll be back...
...we just don't know when."
