What music from today will stand the test of time?

    A post in the Grammy thread got me thinking, and I think this deserves its own thread. What music from today will stand the test of time? What will still be on the radio on some "oldies" station 30 years from now?
    I can't think of a ton off the top of my head, but I'll start it with the Chili Peppers.

    Has stood time for 20+ years, and will continue to do so.

    Pearl Jam.

    (Yes, I realize I'm the one who said the 2027 Grammys would be awful because no one gives a shit about the music of today)

    I'd go as far back as the 90s because that music obviously isn't "old" yet. I'm thinking about my generation, but obviously there's wide range of ages on here, so I'd say the last 10 years or so. Definitely not literrally today, as in 2007 only.

    The last 10 years, 1997-2007.....nothing.
    Absolute shit....other than "vets" like U2, Springsteen, etc.

    Feel free to use your own guidelines. I wouldn't put Springsteen in today. U2 though probably would, and Green Day and Pearl Jam definitely... like I said, last 10-15 years.

    Eminem, Green Day, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige (provided she stops putting rappers in all her songs) . . . . . . .

    They don't belong there. Simple, but true.

    Because they're still recording for a major label and touring. They're still releasing and performing new product on a fairly regular basis.

    I don't know how many rap fans are on the board, but what'll happen to it? Like I said in the other thread I don't see today's rappers still rapping and going on tours in 25 years. But I don't think the music will cease to exist, there will probably always be young people coming up and taking their place. But will today's rap be on the radio like music from the 60s and 70s are on oldies and classic rock stations?
