Saw this on another forum and didn't find anything on a quick search here, so, sorry if it's a repeat at all.

But I was wondering since some of us were talking about Jack White being one of the most influential 'rock star' last decade.

So I'm wondering who you all think will be big/influential for this decade.

Discuss..

I think Outkast will have a strong first half of the decade, don't know how big the impact will be.

I'm thinking.. Arcade Fire, then another resurgence from UK indie/pop, then the backlash.. then hip-hop's new indie cred will become (super) huge, and then the backlash..

I think Radiohead has peaked honestly. Don't see them outselling any of their earlier records but will stay steady through the decade, still selling out every show but nothing different.

And I think The Knife/Fever Ray are too bizarre for US mainstream but I do seem them influencing our musicians here

Outkast already had an enormous impact years ago, dipshit.

I think NWA and Grandmaster Flash are going to be very influential and make a big impact on the hip hop scene in the next ten years. I think Snoop Dogg will also cause quite a stir.

Probably gonna be Daft Punk. They will be the talk of 2011 at least.

You really think NMH will explode into heavy mainstream anytime soon?

I doubt they would ever get back together officially, let alone play a big show. Just don't see it

ac and the knife are both well respected among their peers. both push the limit of pop music's ability to accommodate avant garde ('weird' to the mainstream) tendencies, with stellar results. with the huge presence and acclaim they held in the last decade, it makes sense that bands emerging today will channel their influence, both intentionally and subconsciously.

Yeah, I was there, doesn't mean they can't have another huge album and cultural moment this decade too.

I think the next album they drop will do that for them.

And really... ? you are saying Snoop Dog and NWA?? I "HIGH"LY doubt that..

I guess the answer I am going to get either way is "we don't really know". But looking back it seems pretty clear where music trends come from.

Just thought some of you would have that insight..

Most likely, not then.

between the two id give it to the knife. who knows maybe in ten years ill look back at this thread and say, "fuck i sure was wrong about that one"

Amazing.

Snoop Dog has a reality show on some god awful cable network. He is so played out, beverly hills BORING ass 'rap' music.

I think Heidi Klum has more street cred than him.

He isn't even going to make a peep in this decade.

And NWA can't even tour properly, let alone make some cultural/musical impact this decade.

Cocksucker.

Daft Punk? The Knife? Get real people. This is not a Coachella Message Board popularity contest, it's about what act is most likely to "influence" music for the next decade.

Most people don't even know who the Knife is, therefore they will not influence music for the next decade.

I think Arcade Fire has a really good chance.

But more than anyone, I would have to say Lady Gaga is the type of artist who for good or bad, could be a huge influence on the musical scene this decade.

Hate away but deep down you know I'm probably right.

It doesn't matter whether "most people" have heard of a given artist. What matters is if a band or musician has. Many musicians are influenced by artists who aren't well known to the general public.

Your an idiot. I probably am too for saying the following....

I think The Prodigy are very over-looked, as far as being influential goes. Their fusion of genre's kinda opened alot of doors. Too lazy to fully explain atm, but think about it.

Radiohead was the most influential (rock) band of the last decade. As for this decade.... hmmm Arcade Fire's not a terrible guess. But I'd have to agree with those who are saying we haven't heard yet from the band that will be the most influential this decade.

wait , you say this isn't a popularity contest and Lady Gaga is your pick.

The Knife have really talented beats and abstract lyrics in interesting tones of voice.I hope at least the presentation will get influence into newer developing bands.
