    in the generation of ipods, social mdeia, the music industry has been challenged throughout. records and cds no longer contribute much to revenue. live performances are the key these days.

    who do you think are the "coolest bands" that have emerged in the last decade?

    I am not taking away their musical talent but in the world of new marketing, bands need more than talent.

    To me, bands like 30 Secs From Mars, The Strokes seems to be really playing the right cards.

    Please share your opinions!

    I'm waiting for the second coming of The Donnas.

    Besides that, Black Stone Cherry and Airbourne have made me happy.

    Cant argue with any of those bands.

    but it's an unfair advantage when you have a good-looking actor and a huge marketing budget!

    I guess I'm showing my age here, but I'm not really familiar with any of these new bands from this past decade.

    Radiohead for sure ... releasing "In Rainbows" directly as pay-what-you-want was an interesting move.

    Wilco too - lots of special releases, LP versions, download freebies for those who bought CD's, etc. They're covering a lot of angles.
