sooner or later they'll be throwing quarters at you on stage

This morning, my 7 year-old nephew was showing me some songs which he had loaded in his PSP and I found out he likes RnB stuff like Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, and I'm surprised he also listens to Blink 182! He likes Fall Out Boy but doesn't like The Click Five. Yey! He has good taste! Or at least it's agreeable to me :-)

It got me thinking - will our kids in the future look at all the bands we love like, for example, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Muse, Incubus, Red Hot, etc... like we look at The Temptations or The Cascades or Neil Sedaka now? Are they gonna be the type of bands that we're going to go see in a concert when we're old and grey just to listen to them play their old stuff and without new material? Wait... New Kids on the Block is staging a reunion! Is there a next Kurt Cobain who will surprise the world with an untimely death borne by the Rock and Roll lifestyle? Which band will our kids in the future appreciate in the same way as our generation appreciates The Beatles? Or would it still be The Beatles? Will there ever be a band that's as phenomenal as The Beatles?

What happened to McCaulay Culkin?!
