last night at work i was listening to my ipod when i thought about what bands are we going to think of as classic when our generation gets older (our generation being 16-25ish). obviously some bands are going to fizzle out but what ones are going to leave a lasting impression like led zeppelin and others.

some bands i thought of were the red hot chilli peppers, foo fighters, interpol, radiohead and so on

so what are your thoughts

Guns n roses

What I'd like to see as classic: Protest the Hero, Trivium

What probably will be classic: Pearl Jam, RHCP
#8
RHCP will def still be popular in the distant future, as long as The Foo, and all the others you have named

But seriously, that's a good question. Will that stuff be considered Classic Rock when it gets older? Then what becomes of Led Zepp, AC/DC and such? Do they become known as almost Black and White-era old bands are now? A very thought provoking question...


Some others that I think will last will be the White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and System of a Down most likely.

#11
pearl jam. foo fighters. chili peppers. oasis. white stripes.

a few more that i can't think of at the moment.
#12
Muse.

The Raconteurs.


The Raconteurs? Yeah right. White Stripes more likely but they will be forgotten too. Were talking bands that are legendary and record breaking NOW and will continue to be.
#19
RHCP, Metallica, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The White Stripes, Fall Out Boy... Nothing I really like.
#20
Tool, Chili Peppers, Faith Hill, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Dave Mathews, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Shania Twain, John Mayer, Toby Keith to name a few. I don't base this on personal taste, just look at the most popular tours to see.

Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
#22
every not sell-out band since the 90's.

so the ones everyone has mentioned before.
RHCP, Foo, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, SOAD, nirvana, green day (90's stuff), white stripes, etc. and of course BLINK-182@@

then some of the gay bands liek secondhand serendade will somehow survive. looking back, ill be pretty proud at our generation of music, considering how bad it could have been

ive been to 300+ concerts and the raconteurs have to be one of the best ive seen, theyre extremely great and before i went to the concert i wasnt even that crazy about them.

i think blink 182 for sure cause it's been 3 years and they still get talked about all the time.
#26
Forgot Blink and Nirvana and unfortunately Green Day. I love Tool but they won't be huge and legendary like others. They were and are and will be important to the music scene but no not classic in everyone's eyes.
#27
Quote by Okeefe Is Legit
Green Day
Avenged Sevenfold
Blink 182
Jack Johnson
Linkin Park
My Chemical Romance
New Found Glory
RHCP
Tool

Pretty much the bands that have either been around for a while or the ones that have had albums with a lot of singles.

That list is full of fail..

actually, people like Nick Drake, the legend himself, were hardly known in their own time. It's the span of their influence we have to look at.

At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta will definitely be in there.l

I think they are like some of the great classical composers of their time, many of the old composers were not appreciated until they were long dead. Some of their music is truly groundbreaking in terms of rhythmic composition, I think once they are long gone people will realize how brilliant they really were. Every other band out there imitates in some way shape or form, but Tool stands alone in their approach to music.
#31
Not too sure. You see, back in the 80's, 70's, etc, the music industry up and kicking, leaving bands like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Metallica, etc. a footprint in the history of music. Today, the music industry is pretty much dead, so to say any of these popular bands today will leave a footprint in the history of music would be quite unlikely. But you never know. I personally think today's music (the majority) is quite shit, but that's just me.

sadly, fallout boy will be there

but hey, im sure RHCP will still be running around in socks but then, and i reckon muse will last too, they're huge

Yeah, just a bit. As much as I'd love to hear The Mars Volta on the radio in 20 years, they really aren't even half as popular as some of you like to believe.
#39
Metallica, Muse, Foo Fighters, Blink 182, Greenday, RHCP, Radiohead, The Arctic Monkeys (maybe...). I'd like to see Tool up there, (although I don't like them but I do have a massive amount of respect for them).

I think Interpol will one day be appreciated by the masses.


To me, they're kind of like the symphony music of this Millenia. Some people share my thoughts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SAlQeUkaDQ&feature=related

There are String Quartet versions of several Interpol songs on YouTube. I'm glad I found them actually, because I was thinking Interpol would have sounded like that some 500 years ago.
