There are some, you just have to look for them. I just got into the Doves recently, really great stuff. Their second album comes out early June, I think. I've heard a couple of tracks and it's given me something to look forward to.

I guess it depends on what your opinion of a "good" band is, and what "after 1995" means. I don't really find "incubus" to be a good band, so I guess it might be tough for me personally.

But "good" bands that got popular after 1995 (although some had record released in 94), IMHO, include:
refused, converge, sleater-kinney, in flames, avail, milemarker, engine88, mogwai, sunny day real estate, modest mouse, spoon, stepleader, chavez, unwound, etc, etc.

So, I guess the moral of the story is, there are tons of great bands- if you ignore the radio.

Ah, see the problem is, Ryan, that's not what you asked for. You said "great bands" - what you're looking for is "bands with stadium sized support".

There is a /bit/ of a difference Posted Image

I'm not sure how we were supposed to know that by "great" you meant "able to fill stadiums". To me, they are two completely different things. Regardless, other than Metallica and G'NR, I don't think any of the bands on your list could or ever did fill a stadium by themselves.

Michael, you aren't getting it...sure there are bands that could fill stadiums in small unheard of countries but I'm talking about a countries that have an effect on the world economy...

I can't believe all of the shitty bands I've seen live since 1995, since none of them have even played in a stadium. Posted Image

By that logic, The Mummy Returns and Star Wars: Episode I must be great movies, judging by their ticket sales.
He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

Seems like most of the bands you listed came out in the early 90's or even earlier in a couple of cases (GNR, Metallica maybe RHCP too I don't know). You're looking 10 years back on them by this time and they have a history by now.

There are a few bands out there that are popular (not that this qualifies them as great or even good to me) now that could be added to your list 4 or 5 years from now...Staind, Puddle of Mudd or System of a Down for example. They're just too young and have done too little to get a "great band" label by any definition in my opinion, and I don't know if any of them will be around all that long given the way the industry operates today.

The music business isn't set up to produce prolific, or even enduring artists anymore. It's a disposable industry today. Bands hit the scene, strike it big with one or two albums and after that they're more or less tossed aside in favor of the next big thing or worse, "sound-alike bands".

Incubus is a perfect example of this. Their sales are down, there are sound-alike bands galore getting signed with one, Hoobastank, already eclipsing them on the radio and on MTV. Doesn't bode well for Incubus' future.

Carl...you make some good points...I totally forgot about Staind and system of a down...they definetely have potential to make the long term haul...I also have a feeling that nickelback will be pretty successful as well...I dont know how big down in the states they are but up here in Canada all their songs go #1...and thats competing with all the mainstream teen audience that usually listens to Hip Hop and the backstreet boys...I will continue on this later...im off to a bar to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs kick some butt.

I think Ryan was pretty clear on what he meant, and I wonder that same thing. Who are the newer bands that are creating the "classics" of 2012 now?

Dave Matthews Band has hit it big since 1995 and can play some very good music. It does attract too many dumb teeny-boppers though.

I got one: BECK

He always has talent for getting a really diverse group of musicians together for his albums with some rotation.

Very creative and the music makes me want to dance. Midnight Vultures in permanent heavy rotation on my stereos.

DMB had already released 2 albums and an EP by 1995. They also had a sizeable cult following by then. I wouldn't consider them a post-1995 band.

While I would hope Beck is around for a long, long while, his biggest hit, Loser, was from '94 if I remember correctly.

I guess it depends on your definition of classics. Do you mean radio hits?

Problem is, if it's not on MTV, then it doesn't exist.

A couple post 1999 bands that SHOULD be big, IMO, but don't get much, if any MTV airplay (as far as I can tell):

Queens of the Stone Age
The White Stripes
PJ Harvey
Liz Phair
Filter (though their second album wasn't as great as the first)

Bands you've probably never heard of that I think are the absolute best:

Home (from Florida)
The Olivia Tremor Control/The Circulatory System (Georgia)
Dickweed (Seattle)
Thin Acid Angel (San Francisco)
