Genres

Some genres of music owe their entire existance to the internet, drawing direct inspiration from the culture and technology surrounding it.

  • Vaporwave - A genre consisting mostly of slowed down elevator music and 80's pop, that has evolved into a more ambient tone in recent years.
    • Future Funk - A sub-genre of vaporwave. It is characterized with the heavy use of samples, primarily of 70's and 80's funk and disco.
    • Oceangrunge - Originated on /mu/

Groups

4chan Music

This is what happens when you musically inclined anons come together and try to make or to recreate their favorite songs. They aren’t perfect, or even all that good, but that’s part of their charm. There have been two similar projects on /a/: /a/ Sings and Orchestr/a/. /v/ creates albums of songs, usually new lyrics to the tune of familiar songs. Other boards such as /mu/ and [s4s] opt to craft tunes of their own.

/a/ Sings

Orchestr/a/

/v/ Musicals

Larger in scope, and likely better organized than /a/’s music corps. Born out of the complaints and controversies in the video game industry frequently discussed on /v/, the series of musicals lampoons figures and franchises alongside taking jabs at their imageboard’s culture. Has released four albums to date. Meta Song List

Esfores

[s4s]' very own group, running three years strong. While not as prolific compared to /mu/ or /v/'s sheer numbers, Esfores is praised for their consistently high quality albums containing even more intricate references and memes than /v/'s musicals, if such a thing is possible.
