I'm imagining myself back in college, what would happen if while I'm listening to U2, Radiohead, Nirvana, REM, Pearl Jam, Guns N Roses, Depeche Mode, The Cure... and here comes a "fresh new" one more album from Elvis Presley... I can totally imaging myself doing a big roll-eyes, and in the best case saying something along the lines of "ok, I get it, he's awesome, but I don't care about it... maybe I'll enjoy his new single a couple of weeks, but there's no way I'd be interested in listen to the whole album..."
It wouldn't matter what music he'd be playing in the 90's... it wouldn't matter if he's playing 50's music, or if he's playing some achtung baby progressive shit... it would sound old and out of time still, because it's fucking Elvis the one playing it.
It makes me sad because, first and most important, it makes me feel really old ("listening to U2 now is like listening to Elvis in the 90's??? holy shit!!!"), but also because it doesn't matter how good U2's music is, or the musical style they go for, it will sound outdated.
