None really listed above to be honest, Music changes a lot within a short time frame. Most if not all will wont be popular 30 years from now.

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.


That's exactly what it is anymore, just a fad. Make a few albums then someone new comes along and the other is forgotten.

I'd bet Nirvana will still be popular 30 years from now, which would annoy me, as I think they're overrated. When it comes to the big four of grunge, I'll always put them last (then it's tricky on deciding the other three; Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam). Hopefully Pearl Jam will be there too. And this one might be a long shot, but I'd really love it if Rush were still as popular by then. They're still going after 43 years, they've probably still got at least five more in them, and they're the kings of prog rock, so their popularity is fairly unlikely to dwindle, as it hasn't been the same since the 70's and 80's.

Some of the bands mentioned are not big enough now to be around in 30 years. You gotta think, the original bands mentioned and bands from the 60s/70s that are still relevant have sold 10's if not 100's of millions of albums. Nirvana and U2 are safe bets. Coldplay Im not sure of, yeah they had really good songs 8-10ish years ago but since the songs have been forgettable. All of the bands that have lasted had hit cd after hit cd for at least 5 albums, with songs on them that were MEGA popular and very accessible. Bands from the past 10-20 years have had albums songs that met that criteria, but within 5-10 years the music went from amazing to listenable at best.

Right, because innovators couldn't possibly be popular years later....Beatles, the Rolling Stones....


Not all innovators are popular years later, not all popular bands innovate. Say whatever you want, thats the truth and I was talking about a specific case: White Stripes are not innovators, I never said that. But people will still listem to them in the future. You think otherwise then you seriously have been living under a rock.

So yeah, his post whas dumb, and your's too by thinking all popular bands innovate (BTW, Rolling Stones? Innovators? Please (Signed: A huge Rolling Stones fan)

Coldplay will go on for a long time...

Unfortunately. They've been getting progressively worse. Parachutes ftw.

Radiohead is my big guess.

No question Green Day. They haven't put out a bad album yet and they even have their own live musical.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever heard a Pearl Jam or Radiohead song.

I think alot of music will still be popular in 30 years. I still listen to some songs I heard when I was a child, for example: 2pac ft. Dr Dre - California Love.

Okay-- lets think about it-- What bands are popular now that were popular 30 years ago-- Hrrmm... Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Kiss -- Now using that logic -- the only logical answer would have to be --


'N Sync


Let us hope history is proved wrong--
Note:
This is only a joke -- but think about that logic--
I mean the other day I heard a re-make of a song from the 70's.
Just think-- Hollywood is remaking shows and movies from the 70's and 80's
So soon probably == you will see some remake from the songs from today 30 years later... maybe a computer generated Boy-Band....

I hope history is wrong......

Well, a CGI boyband is almost inevitable. We've already had Gorillaz; they're not a boyband, but when you see them live, they're a full CGI band. And over in Japan, there's Hatsune Miku...



Just to reiterate there, Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid, which is a singing synthesiser that you program to sing words or phrases at whatever pitch you choose. So yeah, that video shows thousands of people cheering and waving glowsticks at a giant hologram of a singing synthesiser. I like Japan, but even I can't get into that. :s
