Vaporwave is the idea of a nostalgic past that never happened. An aesthetic about what could have been based off the promises of the past.

It has a bit of a anti-consumer feel to it because we've recuperated stale, corporate committee music and styles into a modern day, open source movement fueled by individuals contributing to it.

I think seeing vaporwave been mass produced in the mainstream would make it lose its meanings, like how Hot Topic eventually killed off a lot of goth and punk culture, belittling it to nothing more than another commodity to fetishize and consume.

What do you all think?
