    pffft, everyone knows its really waremouse and tribal revival which are the archetypical example. america is notoriously hostile to tribalism of any kind.

    maybe you're talking about music and not in a broader? because it's pretty much become the driving force in politics and many social issues (also the dissolving of the GOP).

    no, i mean in the sense of tribalistic orgies and hunting seasons. you just have the american dream version of tribes which are not different from regular accountancy firms. that's why you could never chop breaks up like that in the US with lashings of dub bass, you are a nation who calls us soccer hooligans after all lmao.

    Third just stop confusing us! We're simple people. Just speak to us on our level so we can understand then we can go back to conversations instead of being harangued all the time. It's a bit exhausting.

    if you got a 'hits of the decade' for each decade, would the 80's come out on top? it's the best pop decade (while interestingly being the worst decade for everything else).

    the death of easy listening is maybe a part of that.

    also the pop machine really at full strength, not letting people come ruin it by trying to make art. stock aitken and waterman. lyndsey buckingham getting paid loads to make something pretty. the coopting of john peel by putting him on top of the pops.

    pop was like america in the 90's. the lone, unchallenged superpower. the end of history.
