So there was classical, romantic, modern, jazz, post-modern, rock eras!

#1
all rough numbers

Classical (1750-1830)
Romantic (1830-1900)
Modern (1900-1960)
Post-Modern/Avant Garde (1950-2000/present)
Jazz (1920-1965)
Rock (1965-2000)

I'm speaking in terms of western music. So what are we living in now? Electronic Era. It makes sense because hip-hop is so popular, bands like Radiohead, dance music, and electronica is becoming more and more influential and popular. Will it be Metal Era perhaps? What's the new form of music and expression on a major scale. There seems to be nothing entirely groundbreaking in years. Will it be something like Battles?

This is the modern era. Music is so widely available, people just play and listen to what they like. It's way to diverse to classify.

There will not be a metal era because metal doesn't appeal to a wide enough base.

That's cause you weren't alive in the 80's. I've heard stories.

People are writing combinations of all music that's ever been around, so you can't really label it at the moment. Although I can't see how you stopped the rock era at 2000... it's not like it's over or anything. I think you should replace the jazz and rock sections with "pop". I know some people mightn't like that, but it's the proper term for both.

The 80's also had disco and punk. I think the view of metal as being the be-all and end-all of music is amplified on these forums because they're populated by guitarists.

After the introduction of electric instruments, it's impossible to pigeon hole music into epochs.

Contemporary.

Nuff said.

+*rather large number*

It was slow at first to grasp onto most genres at first, with the main bands being like Devo and whatnot, but when electronic elements slowly started creeping into most all music, it made it nearly impossible to label this era.


I have no problem with it, either. Electronic music is very powerful, and has many, still numerous, possibilities.

The more the merrier.

Hold on there a second. What happened to Baroque? And on that note, I propose BAROQUE REVIVAL!


I too was wondering that.

Also, Medieval era.
