I wouldn't dare lump many newer groups with greats like the Allman Brothers, CCR, or any of the other greats. But I think there's some bands from recent years that carry on the tradition of roots music like blues and rock. The Black Crowes are definitely a band that comes to mind (I recommend their new concert DVD: http://bit.ly/BlackCrowesFYE).
What do you guys think? If you disagree with my choice of the Black Crowes...you gotta tell me why!

If people are entertained and the music makes them feel good, then it's important.

We don't have to like it or think it's good, but as long as it gives someone the feel that your favorite music gives you, then to each their own.

That being said, the Black Crowes really aren't a band of the current generation. I'd say the current generation sees them as old timers at this point 20 years into their career.

Every generation has its hero's!. JJ Cale said this, The music that you favor is pretty much what you started listening to from 13 years old till about 24. and I have to agree. my father hated the 60s and 70s bands. [he did devolop a soft spot for the beatles over time] but his taste started pre-rocknroll. he loved Jimmy Smith, Wes Mongomery. said all that rocknroll was sh!t.

Hmm based upon my 15 year old Nephews IPOD, Zepp, Floyd and ACDC top the list along with Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chile Peppers and Mettalica. Oh and Blink 182, they are huge along with Sublime.

Well, there's the bands that garner massive popularity - DMB maybe - but yeah I'll take Radiohead and Wilco. I'm in my 40s so I still think of bands that started in the late 80s, like Phish, as newer!! I think U2, Metallica, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the most recent megabands, the ones that might be "classic" for a lot of people.

I'm a HUGE Crowes fan...so,IMO...they are a great choice...I would also add The North Mississippi All Stars as well.

surely you mean lamest? very popular but I find them a bit whingey whiney and repetitive and they are more gen x than gen y.

this gen does have some good music happening if you know where to look to find it. check out the yeah yeah yeah's, the panics, arcade fires, mess hall, howling bells, sleepy jackson, the raptures, regina spectre, the cops, the ravenettes, davendra barnhardt, the shout out louds. I think the last few years of plastic formularised sounds is hopefully being replaced by new fresh faced bands and sounds that are live and real. are they important? who knows? the music consumers will have to decide that. I think the future of music is in good hands tho'...

It depends who you think they are important to. hate to make anyone feel old but the Crowes are not this generation. Most young people could care less or have no idea. Just asked my daughter (18) and her response was who? I think her answer was something like. "You mean The Black Eyed Peas?".

For my money, if Bradley Nowell hadn't died, Sublime would've been hands-down the BIGGEST act of the last decade -- and they would have deserved it. That band was incredibly awesome. Their punk songs weren't nearly as good as their reggae tinged songs, but just an absolutely fantastic band. A real shame.

And, I've got to say again, they're not mainstream popular yet, but for rock music, I gotta believe it's going to be Davy Knowles / Back Door Slam

I think I confused some people by calling the black crowes "this generation"...what I meant were bands of recent years (okay...maybe recent decades!). But the BCs got the whole package...great musicianship, cool gospel rnb blues rockin feel, and Chris and Rich are amazing songwriters. There's alot of amazing bands out there though...I like alot of the bands you guys listed: radiohead, red hot chillie peppers, arcade fire, norh miss allstars

I am personally not a big fan of new bands today. Pearl Jam, RHCP, black crowes and even Radiohead aren't really new bands of today... i mean you can hear most of them on classic rock radio already... those are the bands of generation X if anything not this generation.
When you are talking about new bands there aren't many but there is one relatively new one that caught my ear... the black keys. Pretty bluesy, just two guys with a monster sound.

I remember the first time i seen the Crowes they opened for Robert Plant in support of there Shake your money maker CD. I was impressed and became a fan although over the years I am having troubles with there attempt to transition into the same realm of the brothers.

Now i would consider a new band aband that has hit the scene within the past 9-10 yrs.

I am totally oin que for HCR..extremely innovative in my opinion

Without a doubt i would say DTB is going to be a longtime significant band. Just my two cents

Pearl Jam and the Black Crowes are great, but for bands that have become popular more recently I would say the White Stripes and Kings of Leon. Oh and of course a band that is really coming into its own the Derek Trucks Band!

HI Hugh glad to hear from you and YES the wife and I are going. If you can make it give me a shout a few days before and we can catch a bite to eat beforehand.

<Quote moemoe6434>PearlJam</Quote moemoe6434>

At one time i thought PJ would be a long standing significant band but I am one original fan that really has no desire to buy or listen to anything they create anymore. The last concert i seen of PJ was 4 yrs ago in Atlanta and Eddie went on some politcal rant worse than usual.

To echo what eightiesbaby80 said, you first have to determine what the current generation is. A lot of those bands that have been named have members in their mid to late 40's.

I still watch Saturday Live. I'm always curious about the musical guests.

It seems to me that "bands" (in quotes because I'm not sure all meet criteria) like the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Blink 182, the Killers - those types of "bands" are what the current generation listens to .... when they're not listening to "classic rock" bands.

I'm an old fart! Let's go ahead and get that out of the way!

I don't know how many of these "bands" will have any sort of lasting permanence. I'm sure that some will still get played in 20 years, I just can't tell which ones.

What seems to be lacking from the current generation is virtuoso playing of instruments. These new acts seem to be more about songs, and that's okay. I do not hear any Duanes, Jimi's or Eric's on the current scene (Derek Trucks is 30!).

I attended Birmingham's annual City Stages Festival last weekend. The line-up didn't absolutely nothing for me for the most part (Styx, REO Speedwagon and a band called Lynyrd Skynnyrd were the headliners). So I strolled the stages, listening to newer and younger acts. I was just underwhelmed at how ... lightweight the current crop seems to be.

I'll keep my ears open! I'm always looking to get turned on by something!

Aw yes. The Black Keys!!! Raw and awesome. Like the White Stripes, if the White Stripes were any good.
