    I don't agree with most the names mentioned at all. Think about the sort of bands/ songs that are widely known from the 60s/70s/80s. Do you really think that in 2040 many people are going to be bopping around to Rhianna, 50 cent or the Killers? Sure they're plenty popular now, but I can't help but feel it's going to fizzle out into "the embarrasing crap music my mum/ dad/ aunt used to listen to"

    I don't think it will be remebered for individual bands necessarily (we have to wait for history to decide that), but rather by events within the music industry.

    Post-punk revival (Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Killers, Editors, etc)
    Synthpop Revival (M83, The Knife, Crystal Castles, MGMT, etc)

    The increased ability of artists to reach new audiences through the internet as well as the rise of online radio (Last.fm, Pandora), and falling startup costs for musicians due to the internet.

    This decade will be remembered for producing sub-standard regurgitations of previous decades' masterpieces.
    THAT is very true.

    I think this decade will be remembered as the time where Disney really did take over - High School Musical, Hannah Montana, etc.

    Why do so many people see fit to put Killers alongside crap like fiddy and Rihanna, i don't geddit. It is something that anoys me when talent is thrown aside and opinions that they are as talented as 2 of the worst in the music industry!! Of course Rihanna and 50 Cent won't be listened to in the future though, there's no substance in the music, it's popular music now as it goes with the trends but does nothing special at all. It's mainstream music for you, and it's stuff like that that will fizzle out to nothing in about 10 or so years time.

    Ultimately you might be remembered for this decade, but unless you're talented your music won't live on in the future because ultimately talent is the difference between long and short lasting music. So Rihanna, 50 Cent and many Pop icons will fizzle out to nothingness when trends move on and they cannot keep up.

    The big acid test is whether well be able to go to one of their shows in 10-20 years time, like with the Who or Elton John or Tom jones etc
    Ive got no doubt that ill be able to rock up to see Muse/Coldplay/Killers, but Rihanna?

    Rihanna has little talent, she only sings, none of her lyrics she sings she writes. So she will fade out to nothing soon i'm pretty sure like all like that. All good bands/artists have to be good songwriters - unless you're part of the dance movement which means you get away with it! :p:

    Time is an interesting thing and if i could go in time by 20 years for 1 day what an interesting day that would be! To see what music has progressed to would be so very interesting and of course back onto this topic on who is remembered from this decade!

    Because the Killers fall into the same crowd- pleasing, easy to sell music the masses fall for. Seriously, ever since "Somebody told me" and "Mr Brightside" christ knows how long ago, they've either disappeared or I've had a bout of memory loss. If people hadn't already mentioned them on this thread I'd never have thought about them at all.

    In a perfect world, Animal Collective. But there's no chance of that happening.
    I came here just to write that too :yes:

    They'll be remembered lovingly, just perhaps not in the same way or by the same people as bands like Coldplay and stuff.

    Dance music was at it's best in the early 00's in my opinion now it's full of ****** akon and then some indie bands.

    Yeah, they've got a very dedicated cult sort of following, so I guess they will be remembered by some.

    Kings of leon maybe and the Mars Volta, which is a great great band as well, but, apart from that, the 00s have been extremely weak musically , the stripes can be another one..

    Good call.
    When Rolling Stone did their top 1000 songs I think there was only 3 songs from the 2000s. One was Hey Ya and the other two were by Eminem. It was in 2005 though.

    Hopefully there'll be more to remember musically from this decade than manufactured pop.

    etc.

    Basically any band that really made it big, all those bands have become (or carried on) being huge throughout this decade, some becoming only more recently "known".

    I'd like to think bands like Coldplay and The Killers will be remembered. Also the terrible last 5-6 years of R&B dominance *shudders* among popular mainstream music. I hope the trend is over soon, it can't come soon enough. (Sounds miserable I know.)
