    Give me a break. Name one band that's came out in the last 15 years that we'll be talking about 20 years later.

    He even looks like Eddie-his facial features especially. Weird.

    He owns an Italian sausage shop now, and is apparently quite successful.

    The bass player in that band played for Dave for several years, including the Sam/Dave tour.

    And that makes this 80s nostalgia thing going on right now all that more annoying. I hate pink.

    In the most recent Guitar World, Tom Morello called 1986 to 1994 one of the most potent eras for music ever, and I have to say I agree completely.

    The last fifteen years:

    Jane's Addiction
    Nirvana
    Soundgarden
    Pearl Jam
    King's X
    Rage Against The Machine
    Nine Inch Nails
    Smashing Pumpkins
    Sheryl Crow

    Lots of genres, lots of artists. Hip Hop became mainstream, and there's a major independent and internet distribution/promotion movement going on right now.

    I wasn't a big fan of Janes Addiction. Then I went and saw them live and they blew me away. I saw VH a year later and...well, we all got blown on that tour.

    Great musicianship, especially from Perry Farrel, burlesque type show. Awesome.
    You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.

    Janes Addiction live is one hell of an experience. Great live band.

    I like your list Andrew, but ya forgot STP and Alice In Chains.

    your missing the point. name one band in the last 15 years that is so poorly stereotyped as ALL THE 80'S bands - in comparison they all have a modicum of passably forgetfully blase yet not garishly wannabe groups that you saw in the 80's. all the nirvana crap ... meh you won't look back and think they are dipshits just talentless. all the hiphop, rap, dance stuff ... meh forgetable, you won't look back in amazement at how grotesque the scene was.

    what IS AT THE CORE of the issue is however, you cannot unsee a mullet and a pair of skin tight jeans.

    it's that simple.

    I'm not knocking any of those bands, but out of your list I'll be surprised if any are talked about in 20 years much other than Nirvana, and that would be more due to the death of Cobain than the music. In my opinion there's not a Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Sabbath, Ozzy, Nuggent, Floyd, Skynard, VH, Kiss, Bad Co., Crue, Ratt, Def Leppard or Black Crowes in the bunch.

    There was a lot of shit music in the 70's and 80's just like in any other decade, but pound for pound, I'll put those guys above up against the 50's & 60's and the 90's & 00's.

    In a way the stereotype is a testamony as to how big rock was in the 80's. It was so big that to look back on it now it's funny because everyone had the big hair and the acid washed ripped jeans, and that was the culture. Rock music was in the fore front where as now it's more of an after thought, making it more of a cool rebelious genre. In the 80's if you were a rocker you were just one of the crowd. That's how much it permiated society. If your album just went platnium you were just average. You can't let the fact that it was so huge and such a large part of society cloud the fact that in order to get that big there had to be some good tunes behind it.

    I think the bands of the last 15 years have gone back to honest songwriting, which seemed to get lost in the 80's.

    There are a lot of good 80's bands but with it came the shlock that imitaters can do, i.e., wankfeast solos, huge focus on image etc. Somewhere in all of that the guys that love music for it's own sake, and the rockstar wannabe's got all mixed up.

    The other thing is the corprate end of it IMO. Once a band, or a style of band becomes popular the industy saturates the market with a bunch of carbon copies, white loin case and point. More recently, nickleback and all of their incestious children, (theory of a deadman, default....)

    IMO some of the coolest bands are the ones that haven't made yet, the ones no one's heard of yet. Sure there are some big name bands with good enough stuff, but for me it always seems that a bands best stuff if done before it's popular on the radio. Take audioslave for example, a lot of their stuff is good but it sure a fuck isn't on the level of soundgarden or rage.

    To me a true band transends all that shit, pearl jam still kicks ass, sevendust, supergrass, danko, living things, the hip eh, tool, if you stop and think about it there's a lot of kickass bands these days, but I digress.

    White loin, winger, mr big, dokken, ratt, kingdom come, bullet boys and the like where all examples of shit bands with some hotshot players. They relied on one or two guys talent to cover up the fact that they couldn't write a song to save their lives.

    Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, VH, metalica, aerosmith, acdc, gnr.... are a few of the many examples from that era that truely kicked ass IMO.

    The last 15 years will see it's share of shit bands and good bands, that fact seems to be timeless.

    To me the first thing I think is who gives a fuck, the past is great and all, but for me the future holds so much more in terms of newness.

    If everybody just remembers Johnny Cash and Zeplien when they're writing tunes, things will be jist fine
