I have to wonder if, in the age of the internet where music of every taste is available anytime to anyone with an internet connection, where we're not subjected to just a few radio stations that play a narrow range of music, where individualism is increasingly prized above community, that the era of the musical "trend" is over. Is it still possible for a trend to grab hold of the popular interest as much as disco did in the 70's? My gut says no. I think we may be seeing the end of widespread musical trends, and possibly cultural trends. There are smaller trends, but they seem to be more fleeting and less significant as time goes on.

It's entirely possible that I'm talking out of my ass.
