Bands that are saving our generation

Personally i look at these bands as the ones we will remember (or at least i will remember) a long ways down the road. most pop music at this point sucks so keep an open mind and find those bands worth listening to!
I only have a few feel free to add to the list!

Mumford and sons
An amazing band which has a completely unique feel to it. their lyrics all have significant meaning and they continue to rise in popularity world wide.

Rise against
An alternative rock band which has it's own following, though they don't have a huge amount of hits they do very well and have hit the top charts a number of times.

incorporates the violin into their music beautifully. once again one of the most unique bands out there. though they have been on hiatus for a number of years they have returned once again are producing the music we all know and love. (second song is a cover)

    Great Bands... All of them!

    I would add Jack Johnson to that list.

    good call, i tend to focus on the heavier rock but Jack would def be a great addition to the list. I'm debating about adding john mayor as well. his music is great (though the songs sometimes are a little sappy) and he's probably one of the greatest guitar players of this age. (actually my brother's friend was lucky enough to play with him for a few hours. he said it was one of the most incredible experiences of his life.)

    These are almost all pop music... not that that's a bad thing. Here's some music that stood out to me:

    ha no way, hilltop hoods. old school
    - poopiteepoop November 25, 2012, 8:51 am
    some good songs, here but for the most part they seem to be only that, good songs. hilltop i remember hearing before but i don't know enough about them to add them to the list. the third song was interesting with it's style and had good flow but wasn't where i think it should be to get on. the first one is impressive but is more about his skill on the keyboard than the actual song. i do admit i love this last song thought so thanks for introducing me to it!

    Time for me to rub My musical elitism all over this.
    Mumford and Sons-Not a particularly original or unique folk band, but they do seem to be bringing mainstream attention to their genre.
    Yellowcard-Was never my thing entirely too poppy
    Rise Against-Unashamedly love this band. They don't do anything original or special. Just nice catchy pop punk with a good message.
    Love music posts, regardless of what they are. Need more of them.

    Rap genre: Nas always was good at sending out good messages.

    Rock genre: Always loved Korn. They experimented with a lot of different sounds and still are.

    Metal genre: Meshuggah was one of the founders of "Djent" music and have influenced many, many new metal bands that are adapting to the same style.

    The shuggah
