The Chant

This art piece focuses on the popular artists and bands in the 70s in comparison to the 21st century, the early 2000s mainly. The 70s-primarily disco, spoke to the generation with popular artists such as The Bee Gees singing the hit “Stayin Alive,” Gloria Gaynor singing “I Will Survive”, Abba with their hit “Dancing Queen” and a plethora of others. These artists emulated the disco lifestyle. In addition to disco, Classic rock and pop groups like The Doobie Brothers, Queen with the classic “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Toto with popular songs “Hold the Line” and “Africa”, and other groups became the voices of the generation. Just as the 21st century, especially the early 2000s, relied on mainstream pop, R&B, and hip hop.  Artists like Alicia Keys singing “If I Ain't Got You,” Kelly Clarkson winning the inaugural season of American Idol with hits like “What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger”, Adele singing “Someone Like You” and others fed into the mainstream ruled generation.
