I enjoy a lot of these but it's way too soon to talk about all of these albums as classics.
It's a tie-in with our new Decade feature for current classics/10 year tours.

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.
It's certainly a what "our community" will think list, not a mainstream list haha.

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.
Which My Chem record?

I was thinking "The Black Parade" ... which I now realize is 7 years old, what the fuck happened to time!?
Haha, exactly. We started the list at 2010. Man, I was only 12 when Black Parade came out?

That album sort of marks when I began to be a "loser" in school. Everyone started moving past liking blink, and I was like, fuck yeah MCR and TBS! "You emo ***" = the most popular way to insult for me about five years

How has fun. always been a mainstream pop band? One of the first songs they put out was an exclusive to this site and they used to play tiny shows and support bands like Jack's Mannequin and Panic! at the Disco. Aim and Ignite is hardly mainstream pop.

Same goes for Paramore or FOB. Do you think they're not mainstream?

You can't sell a million records, win two Grammys, and have three songs on the radio and not be mainstream
