Obviously this is totally subjective and a matter of taste.
I am choosing songs which I do believe will still be around 30 years from now.
Anyone else have 4 that they think will stand the test of time?
Feist is a talented young woman.

Derek Trucks, named for Derek and the Dominoes, has been playing since he was a little kid, with years of more Joyful Noise to come.

Lovely harmonies here from the Fleet Foxes. Their entire album is evocative of another time.
But it's now.

YouTube - Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal

The White Stripes have been around awhile, and this is an older song, but it was recorded in 2000.
I enjoy the way Jack White stretches; he's got a hand in several different genres. I've seen them live--it does my heart so much good to see this young band. At the beginning of this song, a little boy recites a poem.
That's White as a kid.

In the Sun- Joseph Arthur, The Crane Wife- The Decemberist, Do You Realize- The Flaming Lips, Hollow Man- REM, and What Light- Wilco. These songs do not even scratch the surface. I came up with them off the top of my head. All these artist have more superb songs this decade, in addition to others I did not get around to mentioning.

I hear a lot of new stuff I like, but usually don't know
who it is. These are four new ones I like, ones that I
could call up, anyway...

I thought that "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet was a return to old school rock roots.

Thanks everyone for your offerings.
Loose Cannon, I love all the bands you mentioned, though sometimes I don't get Wilco.

The point is, there is so much good stuff out there right now.

My spouse always has his radio tuned into Classic Rock, because that's the time he (and I) came of age, and he prefers more familiar songs.
I love the old stuff, but suppose I would rather get excited about new music than wallow in the 70's.

Thanks Sat! Jet has energy!

I really love Ike Reilly and the Assassination.

There is not too much of him on Youtube--two of my faves, I Don't Want What You Got Goin' On. and Hip Hop Thighs, are not in decent quality on there.
But Garbage Day is.

Kid Rock's "All Summer Long", Uncle Kracker's "Follow Me", and some of Jack Johnson's surfer-type music. Not really too much last few years.

I think anything from Kenny Wayne Shepherd or Joe Bonamassa is gonna be around for a long-long time. These are just two of the younger generation of guitarists-guitarist. Following in the footsteps of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts etc-etc. You don't just wake up and decide you are going to be that good. It is something special and takes years and years of non-stop practicing. Was it all worth it? Well, you stand out above the crowd as being some of the best. The other guys that know four or five power-chords and writing trendy (forget it in six months) music won't last.
