The most important band in the world right now? That's kind of impossible to answer. You need perspective to be able to figure something like that out, and that comes with time.

Depeche Mode are true pioneers.
I respect them for not being a traditional band -- the synthesizer creates almost limitless freedom and they even go hunting for new sounds at places like junkyards by smashing things or capturing the explosion of fireworks just to record it and manipulate it later. On later albums, they would use guitars for extra flavor on some songs, but they never abandoned their electronic roots.
I also like that they aren't critcs' darlings like U2. Both bands started about the same time, but U2 was always more hungry for mainstream approval. DM could care less about Grammys, Oprah, and iTunes commericals.
Also, they change the band's logo with each new record which is rare.
In regards to Radiohead, if it wasn't for 80s bands like Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Talking Heads, Beastie Boys, Jane's Addiction, and The Cure we wouldn't have the alterantive radio that we have today. I like Radiohead, but you got to respect the elders who paved the way.

Tis a difficult question indeed............but....... if were talking bands from the past 5-10 years then I've gotta agree with Kid_A and say Radiohead.They are probably the most influential band around.They have made songs that are quite radio friendly and almost mainstream to stuff that is just plain craaaaazy and that is what I love about em' and Thom Yorke's lyrics are just fantastic. You never know what to expect with their next albums (and at the time the same thing was said about the Beatles). As a group they are all fantastic musicians and willing to push the boundaries and take influences from all around the music spectrum.Obviously there are loads of bands around that could be considered but I think people will still listen to Radiohead in 50 years time and say WOW and that's what make them special IMO of course. Most influential of all time-- Gotta be The Beatles hasn't it?
What's this bit for again?

Radiohead is certainly the most important current (ie., not disbanded) band in my mind.
Band member Johnny Greenwood wrote an incredible score for the film There Will Be Blood, by the way, which is more evidence of their greatness, as if that were needed.

@Jerichoholic Josh: Music right now doesn't suck, you're just not looking in the right places. There's a metric ****ton of great music being made, it just doesn't make the radio most of the time.
I didn't think I was being vaugue with my question. Sure, you could say that The Jonas Brothers are the most influential band out there, but that's obviously not true.
What band out there is constantly innovating and changing the way we think about music? How bout that?

For Pete's sake people, I've said it a thousand times (read: three), I mean the most influential band in the world RIGHT NOW! The Beatles disbanded. They don't make albums any more. You can't say them.

Just a teeny tiny bit. I think Arcade Fire is quite influential, though. Even Coldplay's ripped them off a bit.

Mark my words. The Arcade Fire. Oh, and I'm actually getting increasingly impressed with Coldplay. I thought their first three albums were garbage, Radiohead rip-offs. But Viva La Vida? That's a goodass album, right there. And their new EP? Pretty darn good. I'm not saying they even touch the all time greatest musicians or anything, but I think they're getting better.
Clearly we have different views because, between you and me, I'm actually a Modest Mouse fan as well. A Pixies rip off? A little bit. But I don't think their crap or anything. In fact I'm seeing them in concert this August.
