General Question

Only considering bands/musicians that have appeared on the scene in the last 10 years, which do you think will stand the test of time?

Asked by tinyfaery (42596points) July 24th, 2008

Any Beatles, Stones, U2, etc. out there today? Will the next generation be listening to The White Stripes or Fall Out Boy? Disclaimer: you don’t have to like them personally, I just want to know if you believe they have staying power.

I would have to go with Radiohead or Coldplay for staying power. Maybe Snow Patrol, Killers, Muse also. Cant think of any others off the top of my head. I will have to get to this post. I do pray its not FOB. They are horrible.

Pearl Jam for sure. It seems everyone of those guys is n overall good person and they all love playing.

If you don’t count members leaving, Velvet Revolver. They’re looking for new singer now.

I hope Jimmy Eat World will. How about Atmosphere, Lupe Fiasco, or Common – they all have good potential. I also think The White Stripes will stick around for a bit – everytime they release something new it’s hyped about.

Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Lily Allen, Linkin Park

Just a disclaimer: my musical tastes are quite diverse, but to answer your question: off the top, I would nominate John Mayer as an all-around musician, songwriter, performer…

I can’t really think of any “greats” that have surfaced since ‘98. Maybe My Morning Jacket or The Decemberists. Norah Jones probably. Richard Hawley deserves more recognition, so I hope he’ll be around for a while. I suspect people will be listening to Jack Johnson for years to come, but I find him boring.

@pupntaco good choices. Wasn’t even thinking of them. I could see The Decemberists and Norah Jones staying around also.

I call Coldplay the new ABBA; damn, they know how to write a catchy pop song.
I love Jack White and Colin Oberst, and I think there music will live forever.

Hanson! Um-Bop! Ok, actually I think they may have some decent music these days. I’ll vote on Coldplay as well. They seem to have quite a hypnotizing sway over the current music industry. I could see them achieving U2ish accomplishments.

As for Fall Out Boy, I’m not sure they have quite the sound to make that type of a longterm impact. The White Stripes may have a bit more potential, but I don’t see them hitting it big quite like The Rolling Stones.

Here’s my list of a few other bands with possible potential for massive longterm stardom: The Fray (if they ever make some more music that is), James Blunt, Muse, Switchfoot/Jon Foreman (this may much more likely be Jon Foreman in the long run), OneRepublic (probably a longshot)

The real question is when where there ever be another New Kids on the Block?

@aa Hopefully not.

The Killers, Coldplay, Fountains of Wayne, Ben Folds, World Party, John Mayer, Foo Fighters, maybe Maroon 5 (that is my sentimental favorite).

those Jonas Brothers have some catchy tunes, they have great potential if they don’t become washed away like other Disney stars (sadly hannah montana will) :)
Kanye West has a chance to stay on top of the hip hop game. He has meaningful lyrics and has a diverse group of listeners.

Diane Krall, Jet, Kenny Wayne Sheppherd. They all sound so much like the classics, and the classics will always have a place. Oh yeah, and Michael Buble is the new Sinatra. fistbump anyone?
