Please, he asked seriously.

Taking into account rock history and tendencies:

Radiohead (Obviously), The White Stripes, maybe early Interpol, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave, Tom Waitts, Bjork.

Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc, are a given, the same with currently active 80's bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode or New Order.

The list goes on and on.


You ask him to be serious but then list Bjork haha

I dont want to live on this planet anymore.


:laugh: Yeah, I know. Not everyone will share my taste in music, but that's understandable. I'm just pointing out the bands in the genres I like that might have some "staying" power over the years.

I was thinking that I should have included The White Stripes after I posted yesterday. I also agree that Bjork deserves to be on any list of influential, innovative musicians 30 years from now - whether you like her music or not.

Nine Inch Nails
The White Stripes
The Raconteurs
Queens of the Stone Age
Smashing Pumpkins, however i don't think i can add this as it would be their work from the late 90's early 2000's

Hardly any. I was talking about this lastnight and we really couldn't come up with anything near like what The Beatles, Pink Floyd etc have accomplished. Everything these days seems to be passing fads.


Even though they are 90s mostly, Rammstein are still going strong today, coming up on being in the business for 20 years. And they are the biggest international band that doesn't speak English, and a big international band period. Not everyone's taste but they have had their lasting effect on me since 1997 (it helps that I speak German). The only band that I still actually buy physical albums and DVDs for.

Talking 2000s, I can't truly think of any band that I really cared about. I listen to some, but they have no stay effect.
.....Nope, really I got nothing. Stared at my mp3 collection and couldn't say to much.

Well if we're chatting about a gathering of people that write their own music and play musical instruments, then answer is near zero.

50's, 60's & 70's bands were bands and some still are, Pink Floyd, U2 (they started in1978), Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Booker T and the MG's to name 4.

Most so-called-bands are some honey's or d00ds dancing poorly with lack of vocals to music written by Neil Diamond or maybe the Bee Gee's.

No one really. Nobody has really moved the direction of music in decades. Maybe Nirvana? Maybe. Sampling and autotuning do not, new directions in music make.

But alas, I'm typing this to a forum of yahoos that think White Stripes will be looked up on as innovators and still popular 30 years away. :rolleyes:

Read the OP again. It's about what people will still listen to 30 years from now, not what bands will still be around.

Not sure what will carry on, but I know Tool had influences like Zeppelin and such. Considering the success of their influences, and how well they've done in creating music that is vastly different from anything else on the radio, I'm sure they'll have no issues with their music being carried on into the future. Nine Inch Nails has had some major successes too, and I don't think people can give up those feelings attributed to some of their songs either.

Basically, I'm pretty sure the music that stands out (in a good way) will make it on to what we listen to later. These generic whiny forgettable bands though surely won't make it, but that doesn't mean we'll see the end of mediocrity in music. Autotune has ensured us that terrible music isn't going anywhere.

Rammstein
Old KoRn

It all depends on taste in music, I don't like a single RHCP song so to me they aren't popular. But in 30 years. I will be in my 50's, but hopefully my taste in music won't change.
