Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand: The future...

All 3 bands are new bands from the '00s. Which of these 3 bands do you think has the most staying power and will become a 'big' band like radiohead or coldplay or...etc.

I think The Killers can make a much more better album than Hot Fuss.

I think the for The Kaiser Chiefs it's difficult to make a better album than the 1st one because employment is very good. But I think the kaiser chiefs has the most potential to become a topband.

I think Franz Ferdinand won't 'make' it. Their second album isn't as good recieved as the first one was.

What do you guys think of the future for these bands? Which band is in about 5 years or 2 albums the biggest of the 3?

Discuss.

I hope Kaiser Chiefs and Franz Ferdinand stand the test of time, just because I like those two bands. FF made a disapointing 2nd record... U2 too

I don't care too much about The Killers but I admit, off those 3 bands, they are the most predictable to have a great future.

Trust me.

They are all very much "fad" bands in my opinion. Here today, gone tomorrow. I'd say the killers have the most potential though.

Arctic Monkeys are horribly average.

Kaiser Chiefs are fun but nothing more.

I don't know much about the Killers.

Franz Ferdinand has two albums out and the second shows they've been doing some interesting things since their first, I'll put my money on them.

Want my pick? Maximo Park. I think they're going to have a decent career of three or four albums ahead of them.

in 2 years, no one will care about any of those bands. with further albums, they will either a) move on and musically expand or b) put out watered down versions of their stuff that gained them this "next big thing" status in the first place. both a and b will lose them the vast majority of their fan base, who will move on to the new thing because they don't want a re-hashing, or because whatever musical progression the bands take will be "okay, but not as good as the last album!"

if i'm wrong, and these bands truly are the future of rock n roll, i'm getting myself a fucking time machine ASAP.

the arctic monkeys are not 'horribly average'. they managed to have a number one single with barely any radio airplay, on a tiny record label and in a pop/rnb dominated chart. that's an incredible feat for a small indie band with only one previous single to their name.

they may be probably the most hyped band in a long long time but they really do live up to it. i've tried not to be sucked in by them but i couldn't help it. they've got good tunes and the lyrics are just exceptional.

anyway, enough of the gushing, i don't think kaiser chiefs will last more than another couple of albums.

but yeh, maximo park are a great band, getting their album for xmas too

indeed it was, but it was their 3rd album

bands nowadays have like a shelf-life of 4-5 albums tops and it's a damn shame

i've never heard of Kaiser Chiefs, I LOVE THE KILLERS, and i was unimpressed with the Franz Ferdinand album.

i hope that the killers continue to make great music, like the hot fuss album, for many years to come.

and i also love snow patrol, i think that they will last a lot longer than franz ferdinand.
