that could be it. despite being U2's age, they still seem to be hip. youngsters like them, oldsters like them, everyone likes them

we'll have to see how Green Day's next album goes. They may have been the biggest a couple years ago, but now not as much

there's also rap to consider...though I guess that doesn't count as "bands." but these days rap is bigger than rock for the most part, in the States at least

I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to that one.

RHCP in a category of their own.
Then somewhere below them, Greenday.
Then well below them, Foo Fighters.
Then well below them, but with the momentum of hype behind them, The Killers.
Pearl Jam are still a huge force, but if you are talking the combo of pull that creates and generates attention, they have dropped off a bit and I think are working mostly off an established base.

I gotta say the Chili Peppers, there are a very select group of people I have met who do not like them.

And if teenage America likes someone, you better watch out, it's in full force.

I like their singles, I can't say I've enjoyed many of the other tracks.

I hope Green Day don't go out to create American Idiot II...In the same way that Muse COULD have Made Absoultion II , but went in a different direction.

I'm not expecting something as good as what American Idiot....but I'm sure they produce something good.

I've never met you but can I be considered in that select group anyway? I've never cared for the Chili Peppers.

I've got a 3rd row center floor seat for RHCP next week in San Antonio and I'm passing it up. They suck live, from what I've seen, and they aren't a $60 concert ticket band. I feel like all their songs sound alike, Kiedas can't sing live, and there is very little about their music that I'd consider inspired.

I will agree that they're the biggest American band. However I'd argue that Wilco is the best American band.
