Greetings from Russia,

As you live in Britain you should know who is really popular in your country(not in charts). Foreigners just can not figure it out due to advertisements, so could you tell me about musical trends in UK?

Which modern British groups will pass into the category of classics next 10-15 years and will regularly remember with nostalgia and the same interest, with the release of books, documentaries, etc., like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin...

Thank you for the answer!)

I think Coldplay will go down as a very well remembered/'classic' band 10 years in the future. Not on a Beatles/Rolling Stones/Queen scale but no-one today fits that criteria.

Adele and Ed Sheeran too, they are real cultural phenomenons of the past few years. And despite not being British, Rihanna has had one of the best chart histories ever here, so her too

He's undeniably been huge this last year - Stay With Me really catapulted his profile and has been inescapable since its release! I would say Ed Sheeran is bigger, simply because he's had two huge albums with countless single success. If Sam Smith repeats his success with his next album hell deserve the same status.

As in any country, the charts don't fully reflect the musical taste of the nation!

Yes, Sam Smith is undeniably huge at the moment but I agree, Ed Sheeran will be much better remembered than him in 20 years time. Dido was HUGE for a couple of years and look what happened to her!

I agree with that. And what can you say about Britain musical taste? as part of the nation?)

It's too early to judge Sam Smith when he hasn't released a 2nd album. Same goes for Emeli Sandé

Blur (or Damon Albarn actually) is not so popular? I thought that british people were really waiting for their new album

I'd say The Killers have been consistently popular for ten years now

Yeah agreed about the Killers, but the Arctic Monkeys even more so. And Muse.

With only four Top 10 singles, the last of those back in 2008, and consistently good as they are, I'd say they are not in the league of most of the other acts mentioned in this thread.

Singles Sales and chart positions don't equal popularity though.

Surely going by their album sales (which are ultimately more important) they're viable?

I think you're scraping the barrel with a few of those... Ne-Yo hasn't been "popular" for years!

One great year is not enough to make it into classic status....even two good year is doubtful....look at Travis/Stereophonics/Kaiser Cheifs/Kean/Scissor Sisters/Shania Twain/Dina Carrol/Tracy Chapman....the list is endless of acts that had one or two great years.


As someone said above Dido had two phenominal eras but is she all time great? I think there's more than one way of joining the list. I would suggest that Girls Aloud are far closer to being all time great compared to Dido.

I think critical acclaim can be substituted for longevity. KLF, Stone Roses, Nirvana are all closer to all time great bands but their sales dont reflect that.

Did someone really mention Olly Murs as a 'classic' biggrin.gif

I would have thought 'classic' must include mainly longevity, 10 years+ of major chart, touring success, and possibly some musical uniqueness eg. nirvana - grunge, stone roses- madchester.
