Re: Would Gangnam exist from 1992-1996
I don't think it would be as popular, mainly because mainstream pop wasn't so electronic/techno oriented as it is today.
We're in the "electropop sound" for the past 5 years, if you think about it. This goes for mainstream artists and indies.
LMFAO, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Rihanna's recent singles, Usher's recent works, MGMT, Animal Collective, La Roux, Passion Pit, Phantogram, and many more.
