I can think of Radiohead and Wilco. Anyone else have some?
Think of the way every guitar-based indie type band since has looked and sounded.
Timbaland if you count him as a musician.
Oh, and I'm thinking White Stripes. They're copying a lot themselves, but still. They'll be important, I bet.
who in music history has influenced the sound of this decade?
or which musicians of this decade will have the most influence on future music?
in that case I'd say Daft Punk as much if not more than Radiohead - though both are products of the 90s
and I reckon I agree with the strokes/white stripes comment too
They kind of came back again early this decade and influenced alot of people I think.
The Libertines influenced a lot of really shit bands
but y'know, haircut band after haircut band starts to grate eight years later. Can't blame them for being different and good at the time though.
Actually makes me a little sad to see them criticised to the point where they seem scared to enter a recording studio while Kings of Leon achieve the kind of success that they should by rights be having themselves now.
Funny how things work out.
Oh yes, the White Stripes are immense. I think I'll stick on White Blood Cells right now.
influence on the likes of yer average singer songwriter type has been insane. I recall how geuinely alien his voice and that accent and WHAT he was saying seemed in early 2002. Give it 5 years and it was all 'ive got this mate called Stella / She goes out wiv this fella...i walked the streets on laaandun and ...' etc etc
For bringing twee indie pop to clueless teenagers, who're now all grown up.
When you think about it...
For the success of the Arctic Monkeys
See: The Strokes and The Streets
broken social scene
man oh man, i'd love to see a list of ten bands which cite any of them as influences (hardly excessive considering they're two of the most influential bands in the decade..).
health are just pastiches of (the far more influential) boredoms and liars, they'd have to go somewhere a bit crazier to outshine their influences (much as i love them).
beirut is just french tinged folk music, don't see why he'll be specifically influential (much as i love him)
fuck buttons are just emperor's new clothes trash, they're only good at making their keyboards sound nice, all their tracks have identical structures and go nowhere and they'll only be influential if they write a book called "beginners guide to casio keyboards"; and even then to a tiny degree and not for the reasons the thread asks for (fuck buttons are turd)
liars and bss though. id kinda like to see what happens with no age, they did give a new wider audience exposure to melodic noise music, even if it is very much like 'they threw us all in a trench'
health and fuck buttons are giving a wider audience to noise music?? and opening peoples minds, as for beirut, what zach condon did on the gulag orkestar, to record pretty much the whole album by himself at the age of what 20 playing around 15 different instruments and with his disability, attempting to deliver an idealised view of eastern european culture id say he was pretty inspiring, as for no age, boring unmelodic noise-pop who produced probably one of the most overrated albums of the year
health are a bit more "rocky" (but their album is comprised of shit loads of the sounds on drum's not dead) and fuck buttons are a bit more electronic but i think it will be traced back to liars rather than those guys. with beirut i don't think he'll be looked back upon like that. i mean i love the guy but had no idea he was disabled in anyway (and i'm fairly sure he didn't play all the instruments, did he?), and the info on it isn't very easy to find.
i dunno though, there are varying levels of influence i guess
I put the question mark there because I'm not quite sure what kind of scale they've influenced others really, I find it hard to know this kind of thing. How do you know unless you ask bands/artists, it could just be a coincedence if there's simply a similarity in sound.
Westlife, Girls Aloud
I reckon will, probably more for at the drive-in and his guitar on that than the Mars volta.
it was all Travis and bubblegum pop before they broke. This year is probably the end of their legacy though.
Also, Simon Cowell. Massively shaped mainstream music and driven fence sitters towards 'real' music, festivals etc etc.
worked with me...never looked back!
Radiohead were more influential in the '90s
Libertines did inspire a lot of crap but were influential nonetheless
The Rapture (along with Daft Punk) pretty much paved the way for nu rave
My Bloody Valentine have had a belated affect on this decade too (re: Fuck Buttons, No Age, etc.)
Good forum question though
At The Drive In
dismemberment plan (if you count 1999)
would sit irrefutably at the top of the list, crossing several genres, in terms of sound, sampling and production technique. You could allow LCD Soundsystem as a side entry, because really, without Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem would not be who they are, if exist at all, but they're the most influential band influenced by Daft Punk at this stage.
Radiohead are a given and also do the crossover appeal thing to a degree almost as well as Daft Punk. There will be bands of all types springing up in the next two decades still influenced by Radiohead, in that slow burgeoning way that lasts and lasts.
Arcade Fire would be the biggest indie influence, which is a remarkable feat considering how little material the band actually has. It's the quality control that's mattered, even if the second album proper wasn't a patch on the first. Oh, and the near biblical level they take to the stage show has been a bit of a help too.
The Libertines have also been a huge influence, but since they were a fuck awful band who have influenced only fuck awful imitators, no one will be thanking them (or thinking of them) in coming years if there's any justice...
due to the breadth of sounds explored on pretty much every project he's worked on. Sunn O))), in particular succeeded in bringing what was a particularly obscure sound to audiences, who may not previously have been familiar with it before, with large amounts of success.
e-40 doing minimal music with a snap to it.
timbaland blurring the line between hip-hop and electro.
timbaland. And I honestly believe that.
don't know if american boy, wearing my rolex or dance wiv me would have existed in the same form if it wasn't for him.
seem to be the primary influence of every other hardcore/metal band these days.
For the sheer number of bands who try to sound like them. They're the face of commercial rock music for the next few years. Enjoy!
End of thread.
really, I know he kind of made grime single handedly but he still hasn't made one solid album. Dizzee Rascal easily beat him just with his debut album alone. Wiley is alright though, he has been fighting with Durrty Goodz this last week or so.
THE BETA BAND
I'm not sure...
why oh why wiley?
