The internet is mankind's worst invention. It's also one of mankind's best inventions. It's a confusing place full of memes, opinions, and naughty bits. But, it's also full of music, and lots of it. As is the nature of the internet, fads come and go, and niche products find a wider audience than they could have otherwise. We've been treated to sub-genres and scenes that range from ridiculous, to scary, to highly divisive.
With this list we'll be going through the most prominent scenes that were born and developed online, scenes or artists that wouldn't exist without the internet. From the weird world of witch house, through vaporwave and cloud rap, all the way up to Spooky Black and PC Music, this is a timeline of #internet aesthetics in music, from 2009-2014.
