I'm no musicologist, but Gregorian chants are still around us, and those are from the 6th century, so I bet the music of the Beatles will outlast Java...
That said, I expect there will Java programs running through the rest of the century, at the least; Cobol is over 50 years old and is still alive, and a bytecode-based language is much easier to keep going...
