Do you think that bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix Experience, or anything that is popular still, will last 3 or 4 hundred years? We still listen to interpretations of classical composers. Will people be listening to our pop music in centuries to come?

I dont think so. I think the fan base will just get smaller and smaller as new pop music takes over.

Its very hard to say.. but I reckon 90% of pop music made today will just be forgotten about.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

Classical is so different to Rock in so many ways that its really hard to say. I mean people will always look back to the artists who influenced their favourites, so its gotta reach back to classic rock and blues artists eventually.

The point of this thread isn't name your favorite bands. It's if modern music will be able to last as long as the music of previous centuries.
#19
Beatles, yes. Zeppelin, possibly. Hendrix, yes mostly cuz he was such a huge movement with where guitar has gone after him.
Pink floyd, probably not. I love floyd, but almost all their music has the whole "concept album" idea and never really had any hits.

Everybody has heard the beatles, Everybody knows that Hendrix was a huge part of musics progression. Alot of people have heard zeppelin, alot like them, but i think their time was too short lived to leave an impression lasting centuries. But for the next CENTURY (note: one century) i think they will be big for about the first 30 years, then when the rest of the band dies they will have a huge zeppelin revival type thing making them popular for a few more years. But i think that around 2080, their popularity will wear off. As for pink floyd, they will be like the sammy davis jr. of the ratpack. Not as big as Sinatra or Dean Martin because of his style of music. Much like floyd's style is different than zeppelin or other bands. I give floyd another 40 years of their popularity like it is today, and after that it will wear off.


But who knows, maybe your kids will like the music you listened to in high school, much like you might like the music your parents listened to in high school. Rock n Roll is too young to make accurate predictions about how long it will last.

I think they will stand the test of time, especially one that impacted music greatly. But it's all up to what music will be like in 3 - 4 hundreds years from now.
#21
Nirvana really wasn't that amazing. No where near. Anyways, i'm done being an ass for now.

Continuing on..I feel that most bands will only be remembered by the certain fans of the music. As that guy said he will remember Nirvana, just as how I will remember Pantera, or Death.

It's hard to say who will be forgotten, and who won't be.

It's almost impossible to tell with Rock n Roll and Metal still in its...infancy for a lack of better words. What I think will last a very long time is bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica possibly, Black Sabbath, and possibly Dio etc.
#24
Well, when you see what music is still relevant from three or four hundred years ago, it's mostly great composers like Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach. Thus, I think that Nickelback is the only band that will be remembered 300 years from now. Maybe Floyd or Zeppelin, but I doubt it.

They are greatly remembered in the rock/metal community without a doubt. Mainstream society is concerned with pop songs/bands that'll die out soon enough. I don't even have to explain why the whole hype about rap will die out soon as well.
#27
They won't after armageddon, which probably isn't to far away.

But yeah, such as Zep, Hendrix and Metallica will never be forgotten, unlike much of todays hip-hop and trance, and there is a reason for that.
The ones remembered throughout history, is music. Good music and passionate artists. That is why.

Edit: And by the way, new rock music eras will return, and same with other genres, the old stuff will be brought back with it, and it will always be kept alive. Thank god for that.

I think Beck will be known for awhile. He's not my favourite artist or anything, but he's got some interesting tunes and he experiments alot. I think he'll be more popular after he dies.

But in order to be remembered in the future, you need to be remembered by a majority of the population.

For example, I'm a big fan of the band X. They're from the the late seventies early eighties. A lot of people in the punk community know them, but 30 years later nobody else does.

I really don't think too many bands will be remembered to the level that Beethoven and Bach are. Even if you hate their music, you know who the hell they are. Sure they'll be known, but not by every person you find. I personally think artists like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen, and other guitar instrumentalists will likely be remembered more than bands, if only for their own technical and composing ability. But the beginning, blues artists like Muddy Waters, and people like Hendrix will most certainly be remembered for starting the mass movement of original guitar.

As much as I love The Beatles, The Stones, Ozzy, and Zeppelin, I don't think they will hold the popular longevity of many others. But I hope to god The Doors do. . .

Definatly the Beatles and probably the Rolling Stones.

I think Red Hot Chili Peppers stands a fare chance simply because they have so many singles and are continuing to put out successful albums.

Really any band with 5 plus top 40 singles will probably be listened to for a while.
