    Default Music genres that need to make a comeback

    Italo disco



    ^^the original version (1984)

    Laura Branigan did the song justice though. Her vid nailed it even better.

    There is no genre that died that should make a comeback

    How about some new jack swing era R&B, or even any quality R&B music. People talk about the decline of hip hop, but there are some underground or OG's out there trying to keep it going. R&B is almost non existent today.

    I think this statement is complete nonsense. R&B is still popular (though not as popular as Hip Hop) and there were a number of fantastic records released over the last few years.

    I mean yeah music is subjective, and you might not like modern R&B, but to say nobody is keeping the spirit of 90s R&B alive or that it's declined somehow is just false. The 00s were a decline for R&B creatively but the last decade has been pretty excellent.

    Well I post a lot of cool stuff in the R&B thread, but I have to say there's not a lot of R&B groups, (or rap groups for that matter) these days. Most artists want more control, or money so they become solo artists, so it's mostly solo acts who collab.

    A few cool groups:

    Majid Jordan
    dvsn
    Sault
    phony ppl
    Hiatus Kaiyote
    The Internet
    Chloe X Halle
    St. Beauty

    Phony ppl I enjoyed. Honestly the genre might have just passed me by. A lot of your recommendations just sound like pop music to me. I will make sure I check out the R&B thread to see if kind find some new tracks I like. I did hear this track posted below the other day and I enjoyed.

    Yeah R&B is often pop music too. You posted New Edition ffs.

    Yeah, New Edition definitely were a Pop group that progressed to more R&B new jack sound. I just miss the sound of past R&B. I don't hear it as much in today's music. Not saying current acts are not talented. Just not my preference. Not trying to be that guy who says"back in my day".

    I know what you mean. I think R&B is still alive, but the new guys lean on 90s R&B a lot.

    Music historians say it's a 20 year cycle; everything gets rebooted, so the new guys fetishize 90s R&B although the tech moves on.

    I see the 20 year cycle making sense

    I'd like to see ska/2-tone make a comeback

    Cheers, I just had a look on YT after reading your post. I genuinely had no idea. None of this makes it to (alternatvie) radio or music sites down here. Thanks!!

    Has there been any rock/hard rock/metal that have recently debuted that are worth listening to. Not including the generic drivel that is played regularly, that sounds too polished.

    Not really.

    70s-80s were the best years for metal
