the only one remotely close to being remembered in 7 years is fun.

Agreed.

I think another band that has the potential to break into the mainstream like Fun. did and become "classic" is Marianas Trench. I have a feeling whatever they have up their sleeves next could be the defining album for them. Especially after their singer hit it big writing Call Me Maybe.

Really think this list is more of a "what albums will ap.net think are classics in 10 years?" In the scheme of things, Some Nights is the only album on this list that your average person in 2020 will have even heard of. That being said, for me personally, War Paint and The Upsides are, and always will be, albums that represent defining moments in my life, so I will remember them for that.
I've only heard Masterpiece Theater, their new one pretty good?

In our scene I bet Horrible Crowes and Menzingers are remembered.

The others ... meh ... the others I could see like Mest, the "remember those guys" bands.
I think Horrible Crowes, only because of TGA if that counts. And I still don't feel like Menzingers are that well known outside this website, they just don't feel "big" to me... yet

I don't think that's the point though ... I think it's the bands within this scene that are seen as classic albums, not the mainstream. The ones that in 10 years we'll be talking about like we do "Deja" and "Futures" and "is a Real Boy ..." now.
I get that part, but I still don't feel like the Menzingers album will hit that status really, but i guess that's just from my viewpoint

Japandroids, Bon Iver, Phoenix, Gaslight Anthem, Young the Giant(?), The National, Frank Turner, Radiohead, My Chem.

Some others off the top of my head that I think have a good shelf life.
I'd agree with basically that whole list
