MGMT is an American rock band formed in 2002 by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. After the release of their first album, the members of their live band, Matthew Asti, James Richardson and Will Berman, joined the core band in the studio.
In 2018, this psychedelic rock duo made a comeback with their album "Little Dark Age", as well as the title track off of that album being their biggest song in over 10 years. I am pretty sure they will come out with a new album this year and I have no idea if it will be more like Oracular Spectacular and LDA, Congratulations and their self-titled album, or if they will go in a completely different direction that we never thought of.
3 Green Day
Green Day are an American pop punk/punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar). Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some of their influences include The Ramones, Sex Pistols, NOFX, and Bad Religion.

Hopefully Green Day will be able to redeem themselves after the disastrous "Father of All..." and I heard rumors about them naming their fourth album "1972".

They consists of Julian Casablancas (lead vocalist), Nick Valensi (guitarist, keyboardist, backing vocalist), Albert Hammond, Jr. (rhythm guitarist, keyboardist, backing vocalist), Nikolai Fraiture (bassist) and Fabrizio Moretti (percussionist, mainly drummer).

It appears that this NYC based indie band is currently working on their seventh studio album. They also did just release an older version of their song "The Modern Age", which is off of their debut album.

After Tom returned to the band, they released a new single called "Edging", which is their biggest song in a long time. I think they will go back to their roots for this album (also with no collabs) and I think it will most likely come out in either the spring or the summer.
6 Olivia Rodrigo
Olivia Isabel Rodrigo (born February 20, 2003) is an American singer-songwriter and actress who rose to fame after playing Paige Olvera in Bizaardvark and has also played Nini Salazar-Roberts in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. She gained much more fame after the release of her debut single "drivers license" along with follow-up singles such as "good 4 u" and "deja vu".
She has become a sensation after the release of her debut single "drivers license" and now her sophomore album should come out sometime this year. I have no idea what direction she will go into next or if it will be happier or sadder but looking forward to what she's doing next. And if there would be at least one collab on it, it would most likely be with her friend Conan Gray, who is also a pop singer.
Her sophomore album is going to come out in September! Looks like it will be a little bit like Sour.
7 My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance is an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013, and again from 2019 to present day. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.
Just last year, they released a new single called "The Foundations of Decay", and hopefully they will finally release their long-awaited 5th album.
8 Billie Eilish
Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, known professionally as Billie Eilish (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her songs "When the Party's Over", "Bury a Friend", "Everything I Wanted", "Happier Than Ever" and especially "Bad Guy".
Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning for its then-president, hip-hop producer and rapper Jay Z.
She has not released an album in almost seven years so it would be cool is she finally releases one this year after releasing a couple of singles last year. Maybe she has found some inspiration after the birth of her child. She is also scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl this year.
It amuses me that Rihanna released what most people seem to consider her best album and then after that just stopped with new music. Yeah I agree it would be great if she had a new album this year.

Death Grips is an American experimental hip hop band from Sacramento, California, formed in 2010. The group consists of vocalist MC Ride, drummer and producer Zach Hill, and recording engineer Andy Morin.

12 Tame Impala
Tame Impala is an Australian psychedelic rock band founded by Kevin Parker in 2007. The group began as a home recording project for Parker, who writes, records, performs, and produces the music.
It would be cool if we would get a new album from Kevin Parker's one-man band this year, and it looks like he has been working on the follow-up to 2020's "The Slow Rush". If not this year, it will probably come out next year.
13 Lana Del Rey

14 Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy is an American pop punk band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.
They are going to release a new single soon and from what I've heard from the snippet, it looks like they are going back to their roots. It looks like they could redeem themselves after their disastrous 2018 album "Mania".

Sum 41 has been working on their eighth studio album for almost a year (I think), and it's going to be a double album with one half of it being pop punk, and the other half being more metal. If executed well, it could be their best album to date.
20 Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006 and currently signed to Columbia Records.
