    3 Songs will definitely stick around and I don't know why no one has suggested them yet.

    Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
    Black and Gold - Sam Sparro
    Music Sounds Better with You - Stardust
    Stardust has 1/2 of Daft Punk in it.

    But yeah, I hadn't realised Discovery was 2001 - one of the / if not THE best house album ever. In fact, just one of the best period.

    A lot of people here are mentioning bands who were very active in the 80's and 90's so I don't think they count. The late 90's saw the death of good music imo - the 00's have just acted to strengthen that. I honestly think there are maybe only a dozen or so mainstream bands that will any degree of lengevity from this decade. I truly despair at what kids these days listen to (and also most my peers :facepalm:)

    Outside of the mainstream, there were tons of amazing bands - however they will only be remembered by people who were fans of that genre, not the greater public.

    Also many of the bands people are mentioning did not reach much international acclaim, mostly just in the UK.

    I think that "emo" (as a whole trend, not restricted to the music) will be remembered, though not necessarilly for providing any specific masterpieces of rock, but more in the way that mullets and shoulderpads will be remembered from the 80s... or maybe that is just my wishful thinking :rolleyes:

    I think people are right in mentioning The Strokes and The Libertines, I see them as being remembered as the great bands that came before the horrible "indie"/"alt"-trend explosion.

    Stand out RnB/pop tracks like Umbrella and Bleeding Love will remain I think, and I'm sure that Kanye West, Jay Z and other rappers of such stature will also be remembered.

    "Big" band wise I think Muse, Foo Fighters, Killers and Kings of Leon (maybe?) may be remembered but other than that I'm not sure what this decade has really had to offer.. I'm not sure I'm the best person to answer such a question though, since I'm mainly immersed in the past music wise anyway...

    From Hip Hop i would say, The Roots, Dead Prez, Common, K'naan, Lupe Fiasco and i also liked Dizzee Rascal's first album.

    Then you have The Libertines, Muse, The Strokes, Sigur Ros and The Rifles.
    The Rifles? But yes Lupe will deffo be remembered. A remarkable lyricist combined with great beats make him one of the best solo artists of this decade from what we've seen of him.

    i agree to crazy, didn't that song make it to number 1 on downloads alone, which was a first
    Gnarlz will be remembered as a one hit wonder for sure, that was huge but is other stuff never done too good in the charts!

    given in 20-30 years time we will all be still talking about the music we have grown up with, and bands that are good, and music that is good will stand the test of time, your generic rubbish has always been about in the 60's 70' 80's, just as time goes on that gets forgotten about, its had to say now who will stand the test of time

    music is personal we will al enjoy different bands when looking back, as it will reminder to us of a happy or sad time
    who knows in 20 years time where we have who's the best band of yesterday, get pink flody and that all popping up,
    we may have people like 50 cent

    the next decade for the first few years, it be a bit of the same, but then we may get a back to the old school sound, and a old sound, not know out side of a area becoming big, much like dubstep now

    autotune no more please no more
    Yeah it's what too many of us don't realise, forget when looking at 60s, 70s, 80s etc., - mind you 80s was king for generic i think looking at some songs which were big around then and the cheese! - i mean there's going to be generic stuff around all the time but having a band like The Beatles mainstream must have been ace. I mean none of the bands of Libertines, Muse, Killers, Strokes, Coldplay, Radiohead that will most likely be remembered are on the same wavelength as the likes of them and Pink Floyd and so many other bands, but maybe time may change our opinions...? There's been many stuff similar to Floyd though, Air's Moon Safari is highly influenced from that and is a modern take on Floyd i think a lot of it is. Superb.

    True true, I believe they will become the Can or Yes of my generation even though I prefer Omar's and Cedric's previous band, At the Drive-In.

    i would of said Radiohead, but they have been about since 1985, so didn't know if that classed, but they are still good :p:
    80's 90's was just cheese pop and brit pop

    The Beatles where just something else

    Muse will be talked about, if their next album is a massive hit as well that will set a pace

    the mars volta are a band to look out for, and their sound

    Well the ones I really like which i consider will be remebered are:

    Muse and Coldplay (probably end up like the Who, touring forever cos theyre that good)
    The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros, Snow Patrol, (Keane?)

    The ones I can listen to:

    Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, some Rnb or hip hop which i cant be bothered to list etc.

    And unfortunately:

    Emo (My chemical romance, just why?) and some rap which just becomes offensive when the overriding theme is women and guns.

    The big Indie and Alternative rock band will be remembered.

    Coldplay, Killers, Libertines, Muse, Arctic Monkeys.

    Eminem, Kanye West and 50 Cent will definitely be remembered.

    The Prodigy have continued superbly from the early 90s so must be remembered.

    Dance music like DJ Tiesto will be significant as well as a little rebirth of drum and bass raving, with Pendulum etc.

    I was waiting for someone to knock The Killers. I listen to mainly older music but still find Killers one of my favourite bands and a rare piece of class from this decade. Kaiser Chiefs, yes, rubbish generally, they won't be remembered, because their music hasn't progressed form album to album at all and they've stuck with the same old indie band... Killers anyway, Mr Brightside is still huge 5 years on, probably the biggest Student song? Definitely one of the biggest tracks of the decade, i would be hard pressed to find a more popular one personally.

    Anyway Hot Fuss, Sam's Town and their B Sides in Sawdust are all brilliant albums and some of the best of the decade, Day & Age was a minor blip but if all their tracks took the take of A Dustland Fairytale and Tidal Wave that album would have been simply magnificent as those tracks are amongst or even higher than The Killers have got too. Killers ultimately are unique, i find no other band that sounds like them, many people don't listen to them much and place them in the same old indie crap but they're not. I'm confident they will stand the test of time and hope the next decade is kind to them too because if they can bring out their moments of class in certain tracks and place that around in each album then it would be amazing.

    In other news i'm not getting these Snow Patrol votes. One hit wonder in Run, generic apart from that.

    Yes Muse's next album is crucial for their long term success.

    Mars Volta intrigue me, haven't listened to much of them, but their sound is very much something else! Must listen to more of it!

    John Frusciante and Flea from the RHCP's play on the studio records of the Mars Volta, did you knew that?

    You migh want to give a listen to Sparta, another band which formed after At the drive-in disbanded.
