I haven’t started a thread in a while …. Talking on a thread about seeing Zep, some people have not seen them or were even alive when they first came out …. Of the current bands, say not more then around 5 years old, what bands do you feel you will be telling your kids you saw 20 years from now and they as youths can’t wait to see them…. Who will last that long or still be viable after 20 years or so …. Not just some band that you still have their CD or whatever will be the medium then, but still together or off on solo things with a chance of a reunion at Coachella 2025 :) …….. X****

Most of the ones I think could be around in 20 years have already been around for more than 5. The bands I've seen that have only been around for a couple of years, as fun as they are, do not seem very lasting. But then, I'm not sure I ever thought there would be Journey reunions. :)

All 10 years old though, fikus. Though I'm very much enjoying "new" music, the bands I saw in the mid-late 90's (maybe up to 2001) certainly seemed more epic and more likely to gather a reunion following in another 10-20 years.

Astrid

i think about this a lot, a majority of the first shows i ever went to were people who are no longer in their prime, but still touring simply because they are just that fucking epic, billy idol, bowie, dylan, eagles, aerosmith....and i would still die to see tom petty and the stones. but i cant honestly say whats going to become of music in the next twenty-thirty years, we are in an incredibly transitional period at the moment. rock music was an unfathomable progression, thats why these people are still legends, they changed the entire concept society had of what music is, what is great music, what is acceptable music blah blah blah.

but now everything is shifting electronically, if you look at the performers at coachella this year who had some form of electronic aspect in their music it is an astonishing majority. i would argue its hard to make a lasting name for yourself in an electronic music age, many people dont understand/agree on what is talent vs. commercial appeal. some people are still in the "i dont get it" phase, some people refuse to accept that even if youre not playing an instrument you can still be an amazing musician....i dont know...im going to stop rambling now.

Here's a couple of bands from this decade who I don't think are necessarily going to be extremely popular or anything, but will continue to make unique, challenging and relevant music even after the scenes that spawned them have died down and who will be looked back upon as ahead of their time:

Liars
LCD Soundsystem (thanks to Sound Of Silver)
Animal Collective/Panda Bear
El-P (hopefully. motherfucker's the second coming of the Bomb Squad)
No Age are probably going to blow up big pretty soon and seem like they have the right attitude to become enduring

But in 20 years time, they will move into the pantheon of classic American bands.

the smashing pumpkins are well cemented in music history, they will never disappear, but i highly doubt there will be another tour, much less several more. corgan is just too impossible to work with. its funny though, because after seeing them all i could think was "fuck, if i were you, i would be sucking my own dick super hard too" he is insanely gifted.

I always thought that as well. Its clearly obvious when seeing them live that they enjoy doing what they do.

John loves to play music and seems to always want to be involved with music in some way or another. Same with Flea and Chad it seems. As well as Anthony to a certain extent

Jack White is our Elvis. He is our Jimmy Page. He is our Jagger. He is what people will remember best about right now in music. He is incredibly talented and versatile. Plus, he looks the part.
When I saw the Raconteurs a couple weeks ago here in Vancouver, it confirmed all this to me. When Jack White started singing, everyone went nuts. He has the power. He is able to captivate an entire audience just by looking at them.
Jack White.


I fucking hate I'm saying this, but all jokes aside, Jack Johnson will be around 20 years from now. People will love him, and he will be a superstar, and we can all look back on January 21, 2008 as the day it all changed.

I have no doubt in my mind Jack Johnson will be around in 20 years. But he will be the equivalent to what Jimmy Buffet is today.

Jack White...

agreed.


MCR and Fall Out Boy will be viewed like all those forgoten 80's hair metal bands.

YAY!

you know I wonder about the converse situation... how many good/great bands of today will be totally forgotten in 30 years time? tragedy. I'll have a cd collection of so much forgotten music. I look at my parent's records and recognize names. even when I might not recognize names. my kids (if that happens) will look at my cds and wonder what the hell it all was.

My kids love The White Stripes now (and The Raconteurs), so maybe they'll still like them 15 years from now. Dunno. I still need to get the new Raconteurs album for them.
